WP Symposium Pro 16.08 Release Notes

In Brief…

Lots of new shortcodes and features, like Reviews, check them out! New “Reviews” feature in the Extensions plugin, Rotate and flip images (avatar, forum, etc!), and lots of lovely other stuff!!!

Remember, if you use a CDN (like CloudFlare), caching, etc – purge/clear everything after updating.

Core

Change Avatar (Flip, Rotate and add Effects)

Please note: some servers have reported problems with the this feature. We are looking into these on an individual basis and will release an update as any specific issues are identified. However, as it works on the vast majority, we felt it worthwhile including in a release.

Flip, rotate and add effects to your uploaded avatar image! Activate in WPS Pro->Shortcodes->Change Avatar. Select effects to show in WPS Pro->Setup->Edit Profile.

Added step1 and step2 as options for [wps-avatar-change].

Friends

New shortcode [wps-friends-count] to show accepted/pending friends. See WPS Pro->Shortcodes->Friends.

Can now style %f if used in menus, with class “wps_pending_friends_count”.

Forums

New “no_posts” option for [wps-forum-show-posts] to set text if no posts/replies/comments to show. See WPS Pro->Shortcodes->Forums->[wps-forum-show-posts].

Usermeta

New shortcode [wps-user-id] that outputs the current user’s ID, or if on a user’s profile page, the ID of that user.

Miscellaneous

Updated SimpleImage class to latest version (2.6.0).

Marked as compatible with WordPress v4.6.

Extensions

New extension: Reviews

Add user reviews! Perhaps for companies or something like that? See WPS Pro->Shortcodes->Reviews for all options available.

Flip and Rotate Attachments

Please note: some servers have reported problems with the flip/rotate feature. We are looking into these on an individual basis and will release an update as any specific issues are identified. However, as it works on the vast majority, we felt it worthwhile including in a release.
