Commons 1.9.8

I’ve just released version 1.9.8 of the CUNY Academic Commons. This maintenance release is also a major-theme-and-plugin update release. In addition to theme and plugin updates, a number of bugs were addressed in this release:

  • Replying by email to a forum post that allows for threading will now properly associate your new reply with its parent
  • The Search Results page (displaying results when using the Google Custom Search in the site header) now works properly when loaded over HTTPS
