Version 1.3.3 February 20th, 2021
– The “Add New” button of the Groups backend menu now correctly sends the user to their “Manage Groups” settings screen.
– Fixed a crash that would occur when a duplicate comment was created on a blog post.
– The “Light” and “Dark” Color Switch now clears user meta cache to force getting and displaying the user selected theme when switching.
– The “Account Settings” section has been added to the users Account menu. From here, users can use the “Delete Account” button to delete their account from the site. Site admins can choose to enable or disable allowing registered members to delete their own accounts by using the BuddyPress backend settings option: “Settings” -> “BuddyPress” -> “Options” -> “Account Deletion”.
– Updated the “Vikinger – BuddyPress Extension” plugin to include the new delete account related “Account Settings” menu. Please update the plugin using the theme installer.
– Introduced newsfeed related performance optimizations.
Users can now delete their activity and blog comments. A new actions dropdown has been added next to the “Reply” button with the option “Delete Comment” to comments owned by the logged in user.
A new grayscale fade visual effect has been added on activity and comment deletion confirmation that indicates that the activity or comments are being deleted.
Activity Feed Settings
Several new options have been added to the “Customizer” -> “Vikinger Settings” -> “Newsfeed” section which allow users more control over activity feed related settings.
– Activity – Show More Status: by enabling this option, a “Show More” button will appear on activities that have a large height.
– Activity – Show More Height: you can control the maximum height that the feed activities can have. If an activity has a height that is greater than this value, then the remaining content will be hidden and a “Show More” button will be created to allow users to display the remaining activity content.
– Activity – Character Limit: you can control the maximum number of characters that users can put into an activity.
– Activity – Comment Character Limit: you can control the maximum number of characters that users can put into an activity comment (this limit also applies for blog post comments).
Several new options have been added to the “Customizer” -> “Vikinger Settings” -> “Members” section which allow users more control over members related settings.
From this section, you can now enable or disable member profile pages added by the theme. This will allow you to easily disable a member profile page and associated navigation item if you don’t want to use it (like the profile blog page).
You can also choose the order in which enabled pages are displayed in the profile navigation bar (lower numbered pages will display before higher numbered ones), allowing you to display the pages you think are more important or should be easier to access first in the navigation bar.
BP Better Messages Integration
Modified the BP Better Messages plugin elements styles so that they use theme preset colors and made several adjustments to each element to make its styles integrate better with the theme.
