GD bbPress Toolbox 3.7 Pro

GD bbPress Toolbox Pro 3.7 is available few weeks ahead of the roadmap schedule, and in scope is a bit smaller than previous major releases. Still, it brings several new features, number of bugs fixed and many improvements and updates.

Before we go to what’s new in this version, it is important to note that GD bbPress Toolbox Pro is a safe plugin to use. In the light of recently discovered potential XSS vulnerability threat, I am checking all my plugins and GD bbPress Toolbox had one instance using ‘add_query_arg’ function where the URL is not properly escaped. This was on admin side only and it is not very big issue. But, this is fixed with this 3.7 version.

As usual: keep your website safe by always updating both WordPress and plugin you use. If you find any security issues with any Dev4Press plugins, please let me know as soon as possible.

Attachments have received another round of updates. You have new options to change the location of attachment field in the topic/reply form. Positions are limited by the bbPress own forms, but it gives you some degree of control over the field location. Enhanced attachments have new feature: file caption. You can add custom caption for each file and this caption will be used instead of the file name when displaying attachments. Here is the animation of how this feature works:


Plugin now features much improved process for loading of CSS and JS files, and this will improve the experience with third party plugins (like BuddyPress) or if you use shortcodes to embed forum elements. Plugin now can load dynamically CSS and JS if needed and not on normal bbPress page. Because of that, plugin no longer needs ‘always load’ option to force loading of CSS/JS files. This option is not removed, it is now moved to Advanced Settings, and you can continue to use if you want to.

Other improvements include: position in the form for private topic/reply checkbox, many improvements to styling (attachment field is responsive), TinyMCE styling with BuddyPress, changes to some default settings. Fixes include resolved problems with minified CSS files and display of upgrade notice in wrong position on plugin own pages (where it shouldn’t be displayed at all).

As usual, if you find any issues with the new version, use the forums to report it, and include as much information as you can.
