    phpFox 4.8.5 Official Release

    How's it going? We would like to announce the phpFox 4.8.5 Official Release. This minor version is mainly to solve the issue of incompatibility which happens when installing apps/themes in AdminCP on some latest versions of Chrome, Safari browsers. As you may know, Chrome and Safari browsers have recently updated to enforce using the "SameSite=None" attribute on browser cookies for 3rd-party usage. Thus, you may experience the issue that the login form displays when installing apps in AdminCP. Right after receiving feedback about the issue, our team has been working very hard and decided to have a quick release of phpFox 4.8.5 as soon as possible even though phpFox 4.8.4 was just released a few weeks ago. Upgrade phpFox 4.8.5 today You can upgrade your phpFox site to phpFox 4.8.5 to fix the issue from now. To upgrade your phpFox site to version 4.8.5, you will need to run the full upgrade routine as our Upgrade Instructions. Please don't forget to back up your site and database before proceeding the upgrade. And, check with 3rd-party experts about the compatibility of all the apps/templates you are using. If your phpFox site is using 3rd-party apps or has customizations, please see our recommendations.   It is important to note that the phpFox site needs to support SSL in order for the "SameSite=None" attribute to work properly because of the requirement of browsers. Running the web applications on HTTPS is always highly recommended so that client-side user data is encrypted before sending the server. Fortunately, many hosting providers support free SSL of Let's Encrypt by default. In case your phpFox site doesn't support SSL at this time, you can follow this solution to install apps in AdminCP with Chrome and Safari browsers.   Have any issues with this version? Please don’t hesitate to submit tickets or report immediately to our GitHub Tracker or Client Area for support. We always appreciate any feedback to make phpFox better, so please feel free to share with us your ideas.   Meanwhile, we are running the Promotion for ChatPlus and Live Streaming coming versions with a 20% discount on purchasing.

    New phpFox Apps: Feed Status Background and Reactions

    How's it going? Today, we are proud to announce the official release of new phpFox apps: Feed Status Background and Reactions.  Two these apps are only available for phpFox V4 ULTIMATE license and can be installed from the phpFox Store from now. We believe that 2 these apps will help you increase more user engagement on your social communities. Reactions and Feed Status Background Why phpFox implement these apps? Nowadays people love having the ability to express with reactions and post statuses with attractive backgrounds on the social site. As you may know, these features were first introduced on Facebook, one of the most popular social network sites a few years ago. They quickly become familiar with social users and encourage them to have more interactions on Facebook. Obviously, they are Must-Have key features for any social network site to increase user engagement. Although there are similar phpFox apps on phpFox Store provided by 3rd-party experts for the phpFox web version, it is rather difficult for 3rd-party experts to integrate these features into our Native mobile apps at this time. Thus, as our announcement in the Release blog of Mobile app version 1.3, our team has decided to support these features on our Premium mobile apps by default. The release of these phpFox apps today is our preparation step for the next mobile app version 1.4 Can we upgrade to phpFox V4 Ultimate? The answer is Yes. You can upgrade your phpFox licenses easily by paying the difference between license prices. For example, if you are holding V4 Pro license, you can upgrade from Pro license to Ultimate license by paying just $1,060 instead of purchasing new V4 Ultimate license.
