Plugins

Here is a list of the latest plugins to receive updates since the release of Geeklog v2.2.1sr1. Some of these plugins will require this version.

Please note, we will continue to add to this list as plugins are released.

Here is a list of updated plugins expected to be release in the next few months:

  • Ban Plugin v2.0.3

These updated plugins support PHP 7.0+ and also contain new features and bug fixes as well. Please visit the download page of the specific plugin to find out more information. The plugins above can also be found on Github in our Geeklog Plugins Repository.

Updated: 2020-04-22 - Please note, that the new reCaptcha Plugin included with Geeklog v2.2.1 is not compatible with how the old reCaptcha plugin determines whether to display the reCaptcha or not on a page. This means older versions of plugins like the Forum that uses reCaptcha will either have to be updated to version 2.9.4 or the older plugin's code will have to have a small manual update (only if you want the reCaptcha to be used). See this Forum post for more information on the code you need to add to your older plugins if you want it to continue to use reCaptcha with it.
