WP Symposium is 1 Year old!!!
First, and foremost, a massive hug to all the users of WPS, you know who you are, please imagine yourself at a big WPS party, you are invited and are truly welcome!
Maybe this time next year it will be a real party somewhere, with real beer! And tea, of course…
You guys rock!!!
An improved postal system
Well, maybe not, but in terms of WP Symposium new forum posts no longer wait for the postal service (ie. email server) to send out all the email notifications, speeding it up no end. You may have noticed it on the WPS website.
If you have a lot of members, all asking for email notification of new topics, you will spot the difference. If you’re into geek things, it is, as they say, now asynchronous…
Quieter week due to holiday
(and December release schedule)
As mentioned, I’m on leave from 10th Dec – 18th Dec, so that will effect the release schedule, and I don’t want to launch any massive changes now that I won’t have time to fix. Also, if you join as a Silver member I may not be able to add you to the helpdesk until I’m back, or answer helpdesk tickets during that time. Sorry! :(
However, as usual, there are some new features being added this week…
Option to show/hide avatar on summary widget
If you’re using other widgets that display the current user’s avatar, it can be a bit “avatar heavy” with this switch on, turn it off in the summary widget options.
Option to hide stars on new forum topics
If you don’t like it, or it doesn’t fit with your theme, you can now turn them off.
As usual, full details of release on WPS Trac.
