Incredible Groups with Easy Management

So your users don’t have to make changes via the WordPress panel, we created an author hub where they can easily change their avatar, cover photo, social networks, personal information, and much more!

Stylish Author Hub Management

Easily create and manage Buddypress groups! Inside the author hub we created an stylish management system so you can easily create and manage your groups, promote authors to mods or admins, check invitations, and more!

This Theme has React Elements Integrated!

Please read the description below to understand a little more about what this means!
We used React to make several parts of the template more dynamic, allowing users to interact with these parts without having to wait for a page reload, improving user experience. For example, a user can filter activities, add them to his favorites or pin it, react and comment on it, all without a single page refresh.

This also means that certain plugins or addons that may work out of the box with the default WordPress, BuddyPress or GamiPress, may not work without us adding support for them for our theme.

You can check every functionality that our Vikinger theme includes by visiting the live preview we created.

As part of our documentation, we created a lot of videos to help you with the setup and customization of every part of our theme, you can check all those videos here on the top banner.
Please ask us all questions that you need before buying!

Changelog

Version 1.2.0 December 5th 2020

Fixes

New Features

- Added information that indicates the amount of admins, mods, members and banned members the group has in the manage group members tab.

- Removed activity post form from all member profiles except own user profile based on user feedback, as it led to confusion.

- Removed unused privacy dropdown from activity post forms.

Private Groups

Added support for BuddyPress private groups. Users can now create private groups which content can only be seen by members of the group.

Private groups have a "Request Membership" button instead of the "Join Group" button that the public groups have. To join a private group, a user has to send a membership request and needs the approval of a member of that group. The membership request can also be canceled by the initiating user or rejected by any member of the private group.

Both membership requests and rejections now feature a specific notification message which links to the new group membership requests settings page. This new page allows to manage membership requests sent to a group and received by any private group the user is a member of.

Existing public groups can be converted to private groups by editing them from the "Manage Groups" settings page, the group manage popup will now have the option to select group status via a dropdown.

Activity Feed Improvements

We introduced several improvements related to the activity feed, including activity preloading and removing the need for the feed to reload when adding a new post.

The new activity preloading allows for activities to load faster after the initial load, activities are loaded in the background while browsing and displayed when the user scrolls to view more.

Removing activity list reload when updating the feed to show new posts allows for activity shares to be displayed dynamically when previously a page reload was needed as to not break the flow when the user scrolled and wanted to share something but continue browsing afterwards without having the feed reload. Regular activity posts also benefit from this new behaviour, they will display dynamically and faster after submitting them.

We introduced some improvements to the Pin activity functionality, pinned activities are now visible to all users instead of only to the user that made the pin, this allows for the pin functionality to not only be used personally but to highlight a post in a user profile for others to see. Also, users can now only pin an activity in their profile feed page, removing the option incorrectly showing on the main activity feed and other profile activity feeds.
