Code release name: Douglas Adams
Holiday notice (impact on support and helpdesk)
Support for WP Symposium will be impacted by holidays. As is traditional (can the second year be traditional?) during the holiday period WP Symposium releases and support will be effected as follows:
- No major new changes mid July to end of August (to avoid introducing major issues and not able to respond quickly)
- Release Candidate (v12.09) is available to anyone who wishes to try our latest code at own risk
- WPS Developer (Simon) will not be able to provide support on the forum
- The Silver membership Helpdesk will not be in operation
- Resolution of any membership of PayPal disputes will be dealt with ASAP as soon as back
Really sorry, hope you understand. The dates when holidays will be in “operation” are:
- 28th July – 8th August
- 15th August – 2nd September
The forum has some awesome contributors who offer support and as always my humble thanks to them for support in the past, now and in the future.
After installing or upgrading a more useful welcome page is shown with information on latest changes (in the new release), some get started links and where to find help. Negates the need for Release notes menu item.
You can remove the welcome page with the dismiss links shown. If you want to take another look there’s a new menu item called “Welcome message”.
Added options for hiding expired events and swapping the order (chronologically). This can be found on the Events Setting page.
Events start/end time
Ensures that event end date is after its start date.
Forum context menu
Add an option as to whether or not to include this plugin. This is a setting on the Forum Setting page.
With the option selected, the TinyMCE context menu is shown if the right mouse button is clicked:
With the option switch off, the default browser menu will show, matching how the internal editor in WordPress operates:
Forum inline images
Uploaded images assumed lower case extensions – fix so that it’s not important.
Forum reply (double posts)
Hide the reply form on the forum after replying. Re-shown if using AJAX after 3 seconds. If reloading the page, do not reshow (until the page has reloaded). Should stop any double replies (or more!).
Add routine to removed orphaned friendships (when a user has been deleted from WordPress)
Put templates back for mailboxitems and mailmessage
Minor glitches with extended fields defined as list
Fix issue with certain field types when migrating (previous versions).
Profile activity images
When the profile image is clicked, a larger version is shown in a dialog box. Particularly applicable to those with narrow activity area (previously added images won’t zoom, sorry).
