The final version of XFtoWP 1.5 is even closer with today's maintenance release. It is still not recommended to run this software on a live site and you should test any bulk user actions on staging websites first.

XFtoWP 1.5 RC2 is now available to all licensed customers from the account area at XFtoWP.com. See changelog:
  • To match XF date field validation, the date synced to custom user profile fields is now sent in Y/M/D date format (ex: 2022-09-21), and removes hr:min:sec from the end. See support reply.
  • Better error handling that halts user syncing if an unknown error is received from the API. In this case, the Date validation from custom user fields was breaking the sync. See thread for more details.
  • Clears warning message on auto-thread creation

During this extended beta testing period for version 1.5 the plugin continues to be actively maintained according to user feedback and support at the XFtoWP forums.
Thank you for your patience and help on this extended beta testing period. XFtoWP 1.5 has overall been well-received and the new Bulk actions and importer tools have been used to connect sites with thousands of users reliably.

This update improves error handling and now shows any connection error messages from the XenForo API during first-time setup or if there is a connection interruption.

Note, the version of this beta has been downgraded to 1.4.92 so all sites using the beta version can use the one-click plugin installer once 1.5 has been marked stable.

  • Radically simplified user registration checks to drastically improve scope of plugin integrations
  • Admin toggle boxes usability improvement + general admin UI improvements

Please read the official changelog for a list of changes and enhancements in this new version. There are no notable changes between 1.4.2 RC2 and 1.4.2 stable.

Thank you for your continued support and feedback for this plugin. The next major release, XFtoWP 1.5, is right around the corner with some exciting innovations to the user syncing process. Stay tuned!
XFtoWP 1.4.2 RC2 - until this is marked as fully stable and available via one-click plugin updater, it is recommended you test on a development site or make a full backup before using this version.

Thread comments
  • New: A more streamlined way to create, connect and reply to threads in the newly renamed "Post to forum" meta box. These actions all work the same way as before, except now you can schedule and run any action after a new post in WP is published. Read more here.
  • Enable automatic thread creation on publish in WP admin > XF > Thread comments > Create thread (can still disable on a post by post basis)
  • Minor UI tweaks to Thread comments admin settings + post meta templates
User syncing
  • New: A change to user validation on signup. Instead of stopping users from registering if the username or email already exists on XF, this version will gracefully connect the new WP user to the XF account, so long as that account isn't already connected to another user.
    • As a last resort, if a duplicate username is found and that user is already connected to a WP account, a random number between 1-50 will be added to the end of the new username and registration will proceed.
  • Clear custom user fields from XF profile is user is disconnected from WP
  • Fix: Password changed from BuddyPress profiles now sync back to XF (thanks to BuddyPress team for hearing our patch request)
  • Fix: Enhanced product purchase detection in MemberPress integration
  • Fix: Enhanced registration detection in WooCommerce integration
Developers
  • Add post types that can auto-create threads with the new xfwp_post_types_auto_post filter
  • Creates XFWP_Data class to hold plugin settings data, easily accessible sanitize methods.
  • File reorganization (filters.php, strings.php moved to /lib/)
NOTE: During this short testing phase, XFtoWP 1.4.2 is not yet available as an official update from the Plugins panel. You can download Release Candidate 1 from your account area and manually upload the plugin zip folder to your site. Since this is not an official version, it is recommended you make a backup or install the plugin on a test site first.
