GDPR Compliance

If you do business in the EU, you have probably already heard about the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It goes into effect on May 25, 2018, and if you have any customers in the EU, you must comply, or face hefty fines. While we are adding support for GDPR to AE in 2.8, most of the work you’ll need to do to make sure your netFORUM-powered WordPress site is compliant will involve changes to netFORUM, WordPress, and some other WordPress plugins you might be using. Here are some resources that can help you with that:

As always, you can contact us if you need some help with implementation.

Association Engine 2.5

We are wrapping up development on Association Engine 2.5, and plan to have it ready for customers with a current license by May 15.

The new version has several new features, a few fixes, and numerous improvements to existing features. It is compatible with both PHP 7 and baseline netFORUM 2017.1. We will provide a list of all of our additions, fixes, and changes in the release notes next week.

If you choose to upgrade to the latest version after it’s released, we very highly recommend doing so on a development site, with a test netFORUM database, so you can check all of your configurations and customizations.
