XF 1.5 Profile post comment improvements

Incidentally probably worth noting that all of this is controlled by the existing profile post permissions.
While it doesn't apply to this new feature, would it be possible, at release time, to let us know which of the new features does have new permissions? That only helps us plug any holes with unwanted behavior (access to features we'd rather not have members use, or abuse).

I guess they would have stated in the HYS that new permissions were associated to the new feature (in case there were new permissions).

Typically the release announcements link to the HYS posts and the HYS posts will usually specify if relevant new options or permissions have been added.

True, but when doing an upgrade, the last thing I have time for is to scan across several HYS threads digging through them for details. This should be in the release notes, just as a heads-up so we are not given any unexpected surprises. And at my age, memory is the second thing to go...and I don't remember what the first one is. :D

This might be why some have requested a changelog with the releases. What's nice about your first post is that you have an itemized list of the changes--even updating that first post would help us during upgrades. It can get frantic when having to deal with a dozen important add-ons and working through template changes, on top of making sure we don't find something members can wreak havoc with. ;)

Keep in mind this isn't a huge deal, but it does help when you have a handful of forums to upgrade, each with a different configuration...

Only one of the biggest complaints fixed. I personally didn't mind, but I know there have been lots of situations here where we'd have liked to have liked a profile comment response. Very nice!

My users were just recently asking me about this. They really use the profile post and comment system heavily, so it's going to be a very popular addition.

Thanks and keep up the great work, XF team!

Nice to see Likes coming to profile posts too. But still there is no moderation for the Likes even in forums.
No way to mass remove Likes from a specific person. So still anyone can abuse Like system/trophy system which lead to abusing whole user ranking system of the site.
We really need Like moderation tools.

You can mass remove likes from a specific person in the Admin CP.

That was added in 1.4 IIRC.
Sorry i miss posted it. I mean we can not search and delete likes of a specific person in mass. (Selectively)
As we can search posts and delete them selecting one by one in mass, we need to do the same with Likes. Only remove abusing likes.

I'd like the option to completely disable & hide profile post function
Suggestions should be made in the Suggestions forum. These threads are specifically for talking about the new features being introduced.
