GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 5.0: Beta #1

All the planned features for GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 5.0 should be implemented now. But, due to the number of changes it includes, it has to go through the Beta stage before getting a stable release.

Initial plans for the plugin were to release it by the end of October, but, some late additions caused the delay. New release date for stable version is now set to November 8, 2017. In the meantime, the plugin is ready for testing, and this Beta version will be followed by one more release over the weekend, before getting to the stable release.

This Beta version is not ready for the use on the live websites, it might contain serious bugs! Use only for testing purposes only on staging or localhost development servers!

    • There is no way to count attachments download. Attachments are in the media library, and there is no way to count how many times file is accessed.
