PeepSo Future

This is an overview of features we’re considering and things that we plan to work on in the future.

As a constant, PeepSo plugins and Gecko Theme are updated twice a month (on average).

This page only reflects our general goals and directions and is not a guarantee of any deadlines. We do not guarantee that things listed below will be implemented for sure. If you are planning to buy PeepSo, please make a decision based on the current features.

The only guaranteed features are the ones already present in the product. Delayed, unimplemented or canceled features that were in any way indicated to be planned – mentioned by our employees in any way or form in (pages, blog posts, community, support tickets etc), third party websites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc) or any other channels – cannot be considered as a guarantee until they are actually finished.

  • Limited support for Custom CPT’s
  • Ability to un/follow post comments without commenting yourself
  • Further notification engine improvements
  • Use on-site notifications as a queue for all other notification types
  • Notification previews in emails
  • Don’t send emails about notifications that are already read
  • Mobile and Browser push based on the new engine

Long term plans

General ideas for the next couple of years.

  • Further Client Side Rendering architecture shift (in progress)
  • Pages plugin / feature
  • API to completely replace custom AJAX & WP AJAX (in progress)
  • Let admin move posts to / from / between groups
  • Custom database tables

Research phase

Good ideas we’d like to implement, but unsure if and how to approach them, so we are currently researching.

  • Push notifications through MobiLoud
  • Instead of writing our own implementation, we are experimenting with piggybacking on the existing solution implemented by MobiLoud
  • Multimedia plugin
  • Mixed content posts/albums
  • Global “multimedia” pages with rankings
  • New Repost engine
  • Switching to custom previews, phasing out the WordPress oEmbed engine from any PeepSo-to-PeepSo embeds – thus improving shares within the same community and between communities.
  • Content ranking algorithm
  • Ability to sort content by “most popular”, “controversial” etc.
  • MemberPress integration
  • General idea to somehow bind MemberPress with PeepSo similar to PMP.

Some day

Things without any schedule at all, but worth looking into – eventually.

  • Server Sent Events/Node.js
