WP Dating has been hard at work on the next major release of the WordPress Dating Plugin. We wanted to give you a sneak peek at what’s coming. New look and tons of new features. We’ve listened to you all and we can say that we have put just about all of your feature requests into this new release of the dating plugin.
We have totally redesigned the main home page, internal user home page, search results page, profile view page and just about all the other pages. We have even modified the optional templates like the Dzonia home page template. Along with redesigning the pages, we have optimized them all for faster loading. We know that most of you run dating plugin on a shared server so the redesign was done mostly for that reason as well as to enhance the look and design to a modern feel. Out with the old and in with the new right?
Some of the new features we’ve added to the WordPress Dating Plugin are new SEO friendly links. Days of long URL addresses are gone. Permalinks are now throughout the dating plugin for every page and dynamic results. We’ve also added more options in the admin area. Now you can turn the Happening Graph On or Off. Don’t want it? Turn it off.
Another exciting feature is that all the button, tab and link styles/colors are controlled by the admin area. You simply add the color code you want for each area for Buttons, Links, Pagination and Tabs. Now more than ever you can match the dating plugin areas with the color of your theme. This gives you way more control over the color blending.
We have removed the old CAPTCHA that was in the dating plugin and replaced it with the more popular Google reCAPTCHA. So much nicer and cleaner. Other features include a new Stories area for the front of the Dzonia home page template. We’ve also added a new “Help” tab with predefined help text for all the features that are on the user side of the dating plugin.
These features and more are in the new WordPress Dating Plugin version 4.8.
