  • phpFox 2019 plan

    phpFox 2019 plan

    A new year has come, and it is time that we gather to discuss the phpFox 2019 plan. As you may know, we end 2018 with the initial release of mobile on par of the Performance improvement for the platform core in version 4.7.x. This year we continue our commitment to building phpFox as the most powerful and tech-innovative social network software. Let's talk a bit more detail about 2019 roadmap.  phpFox Mobile Apps The initial Mobile Apps version is one of the biggest releases that we did in 2018. With good feedback from the community, we believe that our mobile apps are an essential part of any online community. In 2019 we will continue to stabilize the apps and define an integration method for our third-party apps. Documents and announcements regarding mobile apps integration are expected to be live before the 2nd Quarter of the year. After announcing the mobile integration method, we will also work on the official certified Mobile Apps Development partners. Partners who pass our qualifying conditions will have full access to our source code and documents so that they can able to customize phpFox mobile apps as per clients' need. From that time, clients who need to modify their mobile apps can contact either phpFox or our partners.  A New Chat / Communication Integration As you may know, phpFox already comes with a built-in IM Chat app with basic chatting features. We understand that in big organizations and communities, they need more than these basic features. So in this 2019, one of our focus will be developing or integrating a communication/chat tool that has advanced communication features that everyone loves. These include but not limited to group chat, better file sharing, supporting audio and video call, etc. Of course, the new Chat app will be fully integrated to our flagship mobile applications.  The new phpFox look-n-feel with Mobile First Design In recent years, mobile devices are gradually replacing traditional desktops for online activities. We at phpFox recognized this trend will significantly affect user experience for any online communities. As a result, we will start developing a new phpFox version that adapts this emerging trend. On the new version, we will focus on optimizing mobile experience by embracing the latest Front-end technology (w/ React eco-system). An initial release is expected to come at the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Any customers who have active software upgrade subscriptions are eligible to access. So stay tuned for any updates.  The phpFox Cloud Development SaaS (Software as a Service) is the global trend nowadays and phpFox is not an exception. We have thought about it seriously recent years but we had put more priority on building the phpFox core software before getting our feet wet with the cloud. In 2019, we will dedicate more effort on architecting and developing a cloud-based version for phpFox. Basically, the cloud version will have similar features as the self-hosted version, excepts the fact that community administrators do not need to have any experience on technologies as well as infrastructure management. We will keep you update on this as soon as we have an update.  phpFox Self-hosted Improvement Even there are more additions to the phpFox eco-system, we commit to having continuous improvements for phpFox. We will do yearly revise to improve security, performance, and scalability of the platform. We will also provide more tools to help self-hosted clients easier to deploy and manage their communities.  Supporting Quality Improvement Last but not least, one of our priority in 2019 is improving our supporting quality. We have currently put more focus on training supporting staffs for the US office so that they can help to resolve customer's queries better. As a result, you can expect to have faster responses from our staffs as soon as you need our assistance.  Now all you have to do is to prepare yourself to take off as we fly together to a successful 2019. Just make sure to follow our Social Media channels to keep you updated. Be sure to follow our Twitter and Facebook Page to get the most recent news.

    5 quick solutions for spam protection on phpFox

    Social networks are becoming a popular way for internet users to communicate and interact online. People spend hours and hours on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. to talk to friends, read the news, discuss events... Unfortunately, this popularity also attracts a significant amount of spammers who continuously expose malicious behaviors. These behaviors lead to misunderstandings and inconveniences on users' social activities. As the leading solution in building Social Network, phpFox comes right out of the box several tools and options for spam protection on phpFox. In this part 1 of the series, let's explore on how to get these tools and setting activated to prevent spammer to activate on your community. 1. Email Verification The easiest way to eliminate spam is to make it harder for spammers to join in your network. After registering, to be able to login to your network, users have to activate their accounts via a link in the verification email.  This solution adds an extra layer to prevent your site as only real registered users can pass this check.To setup Email Verification, firstly you need to make sure you have correct Mail Server setting which is able to send out emails. Then from AdminCP >> Settings >> Registration Settings >> Turn ON Verify Email At Signup. 2. Captcha Another method to prevent spam bots to disturb your community is to use Captcha. Basically, captcha is a set of required actions which users have to do before performing any action such as register account or post a thread in Forums… By distinguishing human and computer bot, Captcha eliminates all security threats which come from malicious and automated programs. phpFox supports the use of 3 captcha types. Depend on your site’s audience, you can choose the appropriate captcha type which is the most convenient for your users. Basic Captcha A combination of letters & numbers which users have to type in to be able to proceed. reCaptcha The captcha technology by Google. It requires users to click on a certain area as instructed. QR Code phpFox will generate a random character combination in form of the QR code. Scan the code with your phone to reveal the verification code.You can read our guide to enable Captcha. 3. Anti Spam Question This is another solution to get rid of spammers before they can bug out your community. Indeed, adding Anti-spam question and creating your own answers is extremely effective on niche social networks. As you can create a question which is only applicable to your niche community. For instance, the capital city of different states in your country or set the question in another language rather than English. This will totally trick the bots and spammers who are not familiar with your network.For detailed instructions, you can follow our guide to enable Anti-Spam Questions. 4. Approve Users Manually On Registering This setting enables Admin to have the privilege to review registering users before they can be active on your community. After registration, the status of the users will be marked as Pending until Admin approves their memberships.To set up this option, go to AdminCP >> Settings >> Registration Settings >> Turn ON Approve Users. 5. Force Users to Upload Profile Image when registering Force users to upload profile image while registering guarantees false registrations cut back to a manageable amount. Overall, any registration instance has to perform manually, just because it is truly hard for spammers or bots to accomplish this step automatically.In addition, with this setting enabled, users will have a better and more completed profile right after registration.To set up this option, go to AdminCP >> Settings >> Registration Settings >> Turn ON Force Users to Upload Profile Image. We just introduced very first 5 solutions that you can configure quickly to prevent your phpFox Community from Spam.
