Major Improvements

This phpFox web version update focuses on providing a smoother User Experience and improving some features to make it easier for community admins and users to operate and interact.

Add progress bar when user uploads cover photo

Now when uploading a new cover photo, you will see the progress bar showing how it’s going. This improvement seems minor but it will definitely make the cover-uploading process feel fluid and smooth.



Add option ‘Send Now’ for the scheduled post

Additionally, for the scheduled posts, you will have an option to send posts immediately. This means you can decide to post instantly after having scheduled a post on your feed.

Support multiple languages for ‘Main content’

Guess what’s even better in this update? With the Multi-language function, you can now customize the “Main content” section in your preferred languages! It’s a great way to tailor to those whose primary language may be different from the primary language currently on your website.


Include ‘Phone Number’ option in the Ban filter

Besides Usernames, Emails, IP Address, and Words, now we add up one more powerful filter, ‘Phone Number’ to the Ban Filters. As a result, this addon segment will help the administrator better manage the community by removing users with phone numbers.


Edit user profile

  • Add asterisk on required custom fields
  • Missing required fields – All messages should be shown at the same time
