ProudCity 1.16.0 Release

Posted on October 5, 2016

ProudCity Releases

This release contains a ton of new features, widgets, bugfixes, and contributed plugin updates. We have added a number of contributed plugins to add functionality as well. There are no WordPress core updates in this release. It is immediately available for all ProudCity Hosted sites and for download on Github under the GNU Affero GPL v3 open source license.

What changes will I notice?

During this release cycle, there were a number of hotfixes, so many of these updates may already be familiar. Documents, Answers and other posts can be reordered by drag and drop on the admin list page. We have added a broken link checker (Go to Settings > Broken Links to fix broken links on your site). We added a number of new widgets and options to existing list widgets (see the changelog below for full details). In the Actions Box, we created a new Issues post type so you can enable issues even if you are not integrating with one of our partners (with forms, or linking out to another system). Contact us to enable this. We also added the ability to add a Custom tab to the issues box. There is  a new “semi-transparent” topnav setting and restyled the topnav links. Further updates to the topnav will come during the 1.17.0 release cycle as a hotfix. There are many other bugfixes and new features, so be sure to scan the expansive changelog below.

If you notice any issues with your ProudCity Hosted website after this release, please create a support ticket. If you are using ProudCity Open Source please create a GitHub issue.

What’s up next?

Release 1.17.0 will be another large feature and bugfix release with standard 3rd party updates.
