Commons 1.4

I’ve just released version 1.4 of the CUNY Academic Commons. 1.4 is a major feature release for the Commons. Some feature highlights:

  • Reply to BuddyPress content (forums, private messages, public activity mentions) by responding to email notifications. This plugin, BP Reply By Email, was developed specifically for use here on the Commons, by our own Raymond Hoh.
  • Users can now specify that specific profile field should be visible to Friends, Logged-In Users, or Anyone
  • Upgraded to the latest version of BuddyPress, version 1.6
  • New WordPress plugin for embedding Google Docs, developed (again!) by our own Raymond Hoh
  • Users can now select affiliation with more than one college
  • The WP plugin Anthologize is now available for Commons blogs
  • Users can now clear recent status updates from their profile headers

Special thanks to all members of the Commons Development and Community teams who helped to make this release possible.

  1. Awesome, Boone. I’ve tried the reply-by-email and — voilĂ ! — it works. Not that I’m surprised. Thanks for this and the other new features. Thanks, especially, for all the work that went in to them.
