GD Topic Prefix Pro 3.0 is almost ready, and today, the first Beta version (and possibly the only one before stable release) is here showcasing a lot of new features based on the concept of multiple prefixes for each topic.
Before going further, make sure you check out the initial announcement for the upcoming version 3.0, also containing few screenshots for the new plugin version.
This is a Beta release, and it might contain bugs or unfinished features! Do not use it on live websites! This version is made for testing purposes on staging or development websites only. This version requires PHP 7.0 or newer, WordPress 5.0 or newer, and bbPress 2.6.2 or newer.
Here is the screenshot showing the list of topics in a forum, with two prefix groups assigned, both groups using different styling, one group prefix displayed before and the other after the topic title. This screenshot also shows a new widget allowing you to select prefixes for two groups (or more, depending on settings), and when you click to filter topics, you will get new topics list filtered to show topics that have both selected prefixes.
The previously available widget listing prefixes have also been updated to handle multiple groups, and it has several new settings added – including grouping of prefixes by the group.
This beta release goal is to test if the old setup is working properly when updated, to test various other new changes, and make sure that everything is stable before the release of the 3.0 version. To see everything that is new, check out the plugin changelog. If you notice any issues or bugs, please, post a new topic in the support forum. And, again: don’t use this release on live websites!
The plugin home page will be updated in the next few days to show new features, the knowledge base will be updated, and the new videos prepared. If all goes as planned, version 3.0 will be released on March 1, 2021. There may be a new Beta released in the next few days too.
