Oxwall 1.7.5 is available for download immediately. Complete changelog can be found here.
The highlight of this release is mobile forum and mobile WYSIWYG:
We hope your community gets a good boost with the mobile forum which is one of the most anticipated feature. We continue our quest to properly mobilize Oxwall, so expect more news from us in the future.
Important: If you are running Oxwall of any previous version, you are encouraged to wait until the auto-update prompt appears in your admin area. Before you attempt it, make sure to:
- Back up your website. Seriously, folks, better safe than sorry;
- Run the platform update first, only after that run all available plugin updates;
- Run theme update also only after the platform update.
If you don’t want to perform the update yourself, check companies and contractors specializing in Oxwall support.
Here’s the planned release 1.7.5 beta release. Most notably, it features:
- Mobile forum (finally!);
- Mobile social sharing for forum topics/posts (will later be added to other features);
- Mobile WYSIWYG editor for forum topics/posts.
Among other useful improvements are changed password hashing routine, suspended users’ avatar change, friends plugin enhancements, etc. Complete (ongoing) changelog is here.
Oxwall 1.7.5 beta is available immediately for beta testers. All developers and designers are encouraged to test their items on the new release to ensure compatibility.

ATTENTION: This is a beta release which is unsuitable for applying on live websites, hence we do not provide any update tools. Please, wait for the official release – it will show up as the update button in your admin area.
The official Oxwall 1.7.5 release is scheduled for July 14.
