UPDATES EasyBlog 6.0.11 Released! Update to the latest version now!
EasySocial 4.0.4 Released

EasySocial 4.0.4 Released

We have just released another exciting update for EasySocial 4 with some new functionality as well as addressing some of the issues encountered from the previous release.

Configurable Reactions 👍 ❤️ 😁

Configurable Reactions

We have added new settings at the back-end which allows you to configure which reactions should be enabled or disabled on the site. You can also disable all reactions to completely disable reactions on the site.

Global Template Overrides  ✅

To simplify template customisations, we have also added global template overrides. With the help of the global template overrides, you just need to create the template override once rather than creating them on separate templates. The standard template override still works should you still need to have different template overrides for different templates.

Daily Point Achievement Limits 🎮

Daily Achievement Limit

In addition to the points achievement limit, we have also added a daily achievement limit. With the new addition, you can now specify a maximum number of times a user can achieve points on a daily basis. This will be particularly useful for sites that have a lot of activities from their users trying to spoof the system to gain additional points.

Updating to EasySocial 4.0.4

Unfortunately, we had some problems with the single click updater for users updating from 4.0.x as we have completely rewritten the way javascript files are rendered on the site to speed up loading times. Therefore you will need to head over to your dashboard area to download the installer. 

Updating EasySocial is just like how you normally install any extension. Rest assured that your data will remain intact. Our awesome support team is always around should you require any assistance at all.

Enjoy! 🥳
