New Plugin For Topic Redirect

update-plugin

Topic Redirect

Recently, we were asked if we had a way to create a topic that wasn’t really a thread of posts but a link. In other words, click on the topic title and the action is not to show posts but to redirect to something else. Like a download perhaps. Or a special page. Or even another website altogether. Apparently some other forums do this but it was clearly a facility that we hadn’t supported – until now.

So grab your copy of the Topic Redirect plugin and start redirecting!

Plugin Updates – August 15, 2014

update-pluginThe latest round of plugin updates have just been released and are now available to our users who use them.

Admin Bar

This release features the addition of a new permission which allows you to have certain users bypass the akismet spam checks. This could be useful if you have a paid membership and you dont want any akismet false positives on your user posts.

BBCode Editor

This release makes a slight modification to upload insertion when using the BBCode editor. It adds empty space after the insertion and focuses the cursor into this space after the upload.

HTML Editor

This release makes a slight modification to upload insertion when using the HTML editor. It adds empty space after the insertion and focuses the cursor into this space after the upload.

Post By EMail

This release corrects an issue with post by email where it was always making an assumption that the file uploader plugin was present which would cause notices if it was not.

Post Preview

This release adds a minor css enhancement for how the preview is displayed relative to the rest of the forum editor controls.

Report Post

This release adds in RTL support for themes that support it.

Critical Security Update – Version 5.5.0.1 Released

security-updateToday, we have released an urgent security update to Simple:Press. We strongly encourage you to update your sites running Simple:Press immediately.

This release corrects a potential sql injection vulnerability in the search function of Simple:Press. The bug was reported by a Simple Press user that wishes to remain anonymous. We want to thank him for the responsible reporting of this issue so it could be researched and resolved.

So please be sure to update your installations of Simple:Press…

The next planned version of Simple:Press, v5.5.1, is still on target for release in a couple weeks when the WordPress team ships their 4.0 version.

Coming Soon: Topic Redirect Plugin

update-newsWe used to say of London’s buses – and perhaps it is also the case around the world – that you would wait an age for a bus and then three would turn up together.

I don’t recall being asked until recently if we had a way to create a topic that wasn’t really a thread of posts but a link. In other words, click on the topic title and the action is not to show posts but to redirect to something else. Like a download perhaps. Or a special page. Or even another website altogether. Apparently some other forums do this but it was clearly a facility that had personally passed me by.

And then we get three requests for just such a plugin. So we will be releasing this soon – soon after the release of our next Simple:Press update.
