Open Social has been updated to the latest version. We're very proud to present our first stable release. Below a list of things we've added or improved in this version.

What has been improved

Make profile images clickable
We made it possible to go to a user’s profile by clicking his/her profile image in activity stream, comments etc. This makes getting to know one another in the community much easier. 
See all search results in one tab
We made it possible to see all the relevant search results in one tab. This makes searching for a piece of content, a user or a group much easier. 
Social login improvements
We improved the usability of the social login feature by removing unnecessary steps such as configuring password. 

Edit account become settings
Based on the usability study results, the ‘edit account’ button is renamed into ‘settings’. It gives users a better idea what this button can be used for. 

Bug fixes

  • We fixed the bug that comments go to the wrong post in activity stream. 
  • Email address has become a required field when site managers add a new user. This will ensure users can be notified by important community information via email. 
  • We no longer show all the comments that are placed on a post in the stream. This has been limited. On the post detail page, all comment will appear.  
  • In posts, profile image is now better aligned with the comment field in group streams.
