Regular Maintenance Updates

With new WordPress version coming soon, and with PHP7 official stable release only days away (announced for the end of this month), it is time to review all the plugins to make sure everything is OK and to do some regular maintenance.

In the next few days, most Dev4Press plugins will get updates. Dev4Press Updater, GD bbPress Toolbox Pro and GD SEO Toolbox Pro were already updated, and the rest will follow starting today with GD WebFonts Toolbox Pro, GD Clever Widgets Pro and GD Swift Navigator Pro. The plan is to have all updates finished in the next 6-7 days.

Each update includes updated Dev4Press shared code library with improved JavaScript and CSS files loading, new functions and some fixes. All plugins files are optimized and PHP closing tags are removed from the end of files (where applicable). Each plugin uses improved JS/CSS loading for admin side, improved export (no longer using dedicated export file handler, now all goes through WordPress main admin loader). All plugins are tested with latest WordPress 4.4 pre-release daily version.

Please, let me know if you find any issues with the current development version of WordPress and I will get to fix them as soon as possible, before WordPress 4.4 is officially released (mid-December as it was last announced).

Please wait...

Fighting spam in WPForms Lite & Pro

WPForms is a very popular plugin for creating contact forms, and a free version is available in the WordPress.org repository. But both versions have very basic spam protection, and that's why coreSecurity Pro has an Antispam feature for the WPForms plugin.
