Coming Soon: GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 5.5

Development for the next major release of GD bbPress Toolbox Pro, version 5.5 is currently underway, and the plugin will be released by the end of November 2018.

Version 5.5 will be focused on improving the stylesheets and JavaScript code, and on two existing major features: attachments and thanks. All stylesheets are rewritten and reorganized to use SASS, and then compiled into CSS. This will help in the long run of the plugin maintenance and styling modifications. And, as usual, most of the features that will be added or improved, are from the suggestions received through forums.

Attachments will get major rewrite that will include the dedicated stylesheet and JavaScript file, both cleaned and improved. There will be other improvements, including an option to download all attachments from a topic or reply in a single ZIP file. Thanks will be expanded with BuddyPress notifications integration, shortcode and widget to show the list of users with most thanks received or given. Few more things are on the table, but it will depend on the development progress what ends up in the release. Few more minor features will be added with some features tweaked and improved.

If you have any more suggestions, please let me know. I can’t guarantee that everything can be added to this version, it depends on the time available and the complexity of the requested features.


Due to the changes plugin has to go through, additional testing is needed, so the plugin release is pushed to December 3, 2018. There will be a Beta version available next week.

Please wait...
