GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 1.3

Most of the changes and new features are BBCodes related. Plugin now has third group of BBCodes called restricted. These codes will be available to admins also, and even that can be disabled. Two codes are here: Note and IFrame. Handling of codes is enhanced, allowing you to use filters to disable any code and to strip disabled codes from user submitted topic or reply. Also, function is added that returns list of available codes to the current user (or list of all available codes), with code name and examples.

New BBCodes in this version include: Anchor, Email (with anti spam bot protection display), NFO (info file with ASCII art), Embed (using WP eEmbed supported websites), Webshot (image with screenshot of an URL) and IFRAME. YouTube and Vimeo codes are improved.

New enhanced settings are added to prevent bbPress from overriding URL’s to user profile when BuddyPress is used, in case you want to have forum profiles as a separate pages. Several PHP warnings and notices are fixed, and BBCodes bug when codes are not applied to the topic content when topic is displayed as lead topic from replies. Plugin now uses new jQueryUI 1.9.1 and latest qTip2 library. Core gdr2 library is also updated.

If you have any issues with the plugin, please report them in the forum.
