ProudCity 1.4.0 Release

This release contains a WordPress core update, an update to the issue reporting app, and the addition of a number of customization options. It is immediately available for all ProudCity Hosted sites and for download on Github under the GNU Affero GPL v3 open source license.

On April 20, 2016, the new ProudCity dashboard will be released, featuring an analytics dashboard, the ability to enable additional 3rd-party and custom plugins, and an “invite” feature to create new users. More information and documentation will be released with the Dashboard.

What changes will I notice?

  • The removal of the site logo in the footer, and the addition of the “Powered by ProudCity” bar below the footer
  • Updated integration with SeeClickFix with enhanced issue reporting features
  • Style changes to backend (making the sidebar gray, other more minor tweaks)

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?

The ProudCity Dashboard, built with Automattic’s open-source Calypso project will be launched during the next sprint. Our other focus will be on forms, specifically on refining the payment workflow and adding the ability to create and manage Issue Requests with Gravity Forms.

  • ProudCity Dashboard will be released on Wednesday, April 20, 2016. More information will be forthcoming.
  • Issue reporting with Gravityforms #262
  • A new default view for /government using icons #17 #70 (sorry, this did not make it into 1.4.0)
