CORE:

– Platform version in admin dashboard
– URL highlighting for all user content for easy clicking (finally!)

IMPORTANT!

Those impatient can download the new release, new plugins, new themes, and updates manually for now. Tomorrow we are unleashing auto-update upon you so you will be able to update right from the admin panel.

PLEASE UPDATE PLATFORM CORE FIRST. Only after that you can update everything else and install new plugins. PLEASE UPDATE THEMES MANUALLY AS WELL – they contain important additions and corrections.

Thanks for creating with us!

  2. I will have to give it to you guys, EXCELLENT work, i’ve test out quite a few social sites and their software, this by far has to be one of the best i’ve seen, please keep up the good work πŸ™‚

  3. good. I did the update for 1.1 as saying in instrusΓ΅es and screwed up my social network platform. does not explain how to update the platform for a new version? the platform that was screwed …. anyway I’m not mad, but fikei boring ..
    Yours sincerely

    • As I said, you are advised to wait until auto-update is turned on. You will only need to click buttons in the admin area to update then.

  4. Is there any way when the user join that they can go back to the main page.. Because when they join they can’t go back to the home page until they log into there email and activate. So right now there just being locked out

  5. Oh I fix it… the question above myself….
    Is there anyway when the user click on photos that it goes straight to albums instead of all the photos…

  6. Update availability is checked once in 24 hours. Just wait for the notification in admin area. It’s on every page.

    • Where is the instant chat? I hope it will release as soon as possible. I like virtual gift. Nice.

  7. Well i love the new update, however, i can not get my people that i had admins back. When i try to put the new admin back in the update, its say my user can not be found. Can i get some help please ?

    • The ONLY 1.1 Differences On My Network That I Notice Are (User Rolls) Being Able To Be Shown On Profiles, and 15 Newest Valued Members Going Vertical, Instead Of Horizontal. My Valued members & I Prefer Horizontal! :–)

      User Rolls Displayed For Oxwall Employees Looks Better. For Me & My Moderators, They Cover Up Stuff On Profile Icons. :–)

  8. can you please tell me how to install the update i have uploaded to my site but iam still being told i need to update

    • I appreciate your being thankful for our work. I would also be thankful if you returned Oxwall reference on your site, as required by our license. You actually violate it by having removed the reference image and the link.
