BuddyBoss Platform

The Enhancements in the BuddyBoss Platform

The BuddyBoss Platform, the heart of the BuddyBoss ecosystem, received a series of enhancements in recent releases. These enhancements aim to improve the overall user experience and platform performance. Let’s explore them in detail:

Background Process Optimization: One of the noteworthy enhancements in the BuddyBoss Platform is the optimization of background processes. Previously, suspending and un-suspending users could create an infinite loop, causing performance issues. With the recent update, this is optimized.

Forum Reconnection: Another valuable addition is the automatic reconnection of existing forums within groups. Now, when you re-enable a forum within a group, it seamlessly reconnects to the existing forum. 

The Bug Fixes in the BuddyBoss Platform

In addition to enhancements, BuddyBoss Platform addressed several bug fixes to enhance stability and usability. Let’s take a closer look:

Safari Browser Compatibility: Users of Safari browsers can now rejoice as hyperlinks within Activity feed posts are functioning smoothly. 

Hidden/Private Forum Visibility: An issue related to hidden/private forums has been resolved. Previously, topics within these forums remained visible on users’ profiles. With the bug fix, privacy, and forum visibility have been restored to their intended states.

Group Message Cleanup: When the Group Message feature is disabled, users no longer need to worry about existing messages cluttering their inboxes. BuddyBoss Platform now removes these messages, ensuring a tidy and organized messaging experience.

Group Message Media Viewing: Users can now seamlessly view attached media in group messages sent by group members. 

Messages Thread Order: In previous versions, messages thread order could become disorganized when paginating through conversations. The recent bug fix ensures that message threads stay in the correct order.

The Enhancements in the BuddyBoss App

The BuddyBoss App plays a pivotal role in delivering a mobile-friendly experience to your community members. In the latest update, several enhancements have been introduced to improve app functionality:

The Bug Fixes in the BuddyBoss App

Bug fixes are essential to ensure that the app runs smoothly without any disruptions. Let’s explore the bug fixes in the BuddyBoss App:

Push Notification Permissions: Android 13 users faced issues with granting push notification permissions. This bug has been resolved, ensuring that Android 13 users can receive notifications seamlessly.

Vimeo Video Playback: In previous versions, Vimeo videos sometimes appeared as blank in the app. The recent update ensures that Vimeo videos are displayed correctly, enhancing the multimedia experience for your app users.

Deeplink Improvements: The app now loads Buddypress Profile & Group Creator pro tabs as deep links on the first login. 

Events Calendar Deeplink: If you’re using the Events calendar plugin, the fetched Featured image of the course on the Activity feed now functions as a deep link. 

Video Playback with WP Offload: Users can now enjoy video playback without issues when WP Offload is installed. 

Video Progression Pop-up: Previously, users encountered a pop-up saying “App can’t handle URL” when turning on video progression in a lesson after adding ‘classic’ content blocks. This issue has been resolved.
