PeepSo Documentation

Stream Posts, Embeds, Hashtags, Moods, Mentions and Scheduled Posts Settings

Seemingly many features within one configuration page. This is because they all refer to options that can be find in the postboxes across PeepSo plugin.

The entire page is divided into nine (9) different panels

  1. General
  2. Links & Embeds
  3. Polls
  4. Moods
  5. Mentions
  6. Hashtags
  7. Post backgrounds
  8. GIPHY

Links & Embeds Panel

  • Open links in new tab
    • No
    • All links
    • Only links to other domains
  • Hide URL if there is no other text – If a post contains only an URL and no other visible text, the link will not be displayed. Does not apply to MarkDown links.
  • Trim links to domain name only – Visually trim links after the domain name, while the target remains unchanged.
  • Hide http(s):// – Visually hide http(s):// from links, while the target remains unchanged.

Link Previews

  • Load link previews
    • Enabled: links posted by users will be fetched into a preview box
    • Disabled: no attempts to fetch links will be made
  • Prefer a smaller thumbnail – Show a smaller link preview thumbnail on a wide viewport (more than 480 pixels) to save space
  • Allow non-SSL embeds – Enables non-SSL (http://) link fetching. This can lead to “insecure content” warnings if your site is using SSL
  • Prefer previews with images (BETA) – If no img tag is detected in the fetched result, PeepSo will attempt alternative methods to obtain a link preview
  • Fallback to img tag (BETA) – If no viable thumbnail is provided by the target, PeepSo will attempt to use the first img tag from the page source.
  • Refresh previews (BETA) – If enabled PeepSo will periodically refresh URL previews. This might cause some posts to load slower when refreshing. Use this option especially if you recently changed the static images option

WordPress embeds

  • Defines the minimum thumbnail resolution for stream posts. Available options are: Let WordPress decide, 500 px, 1000 px, 1500 px (default), 2000 px, 2500 px and 3000 px.

Polls configuration

Moods Panel

  • To allow moods in the posts that your users will create, the option to enable moods must be enabled

Mentions Panel

Mentioning people in the community will only work when this feature is enabled from this panel.

  • Add a mention when replying to a comment – disables automatic mention on replies

Hashtags Panel

  • Enabled – When enabled users are able to post hashtags on a post.
  • Update post count in tags – Deleted and edited posts are checked periodically to update post counts for each hashtag. Smaller delay means more database load.
  • Process – How many posts and hashtags to process in a single page load. Bigger batches mean faster updates but generate higher load.
  • Delete empty hashtags – When enabled, hashtags with zero posts will be deleted and not shown in the widget or suggestions. Hashtags with zero posts can occur when posts are deleted or edited.


  • Allow non-alphanumeric hashtags – This feature is currently in BETA and should be used with caution. Enables hashtags of any length, with any content, including non-alphanumeric characters (Arabic, Japanese, Korean, Cyrillic, Emoji, etc). Hashtags MUST end with a space, line break or another hashtag.
  • Minimum hashtag length – Minimum hashtags length, shorter hashtags will be ignored
  • Maximum hashtag length – Maximum hashtags length, longer hashtags will be ignored
  • Hashtags must start with a letter – Enabled: hashtags beginning with a number will be ignored
  • Reset and rebuild the hashtags cache – Enable and click “save” to force a hashtag cache rebuild. It will also happen automatically after changing any of the hashtags settings.
