phpFox 4.6.0 new features, fixes and improvements

Hey phpFox fans!

Let's talk a bit about future updates of phpFox and overall script improvements. Some time ago phpFox staff announced that phpFox will release version 4.5.2 and then there will be a bigger release – phpFox 4.6.0


So the main question: when we'll see phpFox 4.6.0? according to this post we should expect it to be released about June or July 2017 which is in around 3-4 months. What will be implemented during this pretty significant amount of time? Let's find out. Here are some features announced by phpFox in their blogs:

  • Support drag and drop while uploading photos/files
  • Support preview photos while uploading
  • Each app which is integrated with Page/Group will have the settings to display public items in All Item page of the corresponding app or not
  • Allow admin to hide/show integrated apps in menu of the page/group detail
  • phpFox will have a new block “In this category” in some apps to display some items which have the same category with the current one while viewing item detail;
  • Support of pagination and better (endless) scrolling on mobile;
