GEO my WP v4.0 Beta 2 And The Premium Extensions

Written by Eyal Fitoussi on May 22, 2022

It took a bit longer than I expected, but GEO my WP v4.0 beta 2, and the first beta of ( most of ) the Premium Extensions are finally ready for testing.

You can download GEO my WP v4.0 beta 2 from here.

- Check out this post to learn more about the first beta of GEO my WP v4.0.

GEO my WP v4.0 beta 2 comes with a few additional features in comparison to the first beta, but the main focus was to make it better integrated with the premium extensions.

While working on the different premium extensions, I went over every single file of every extension to see where it can be improved. In that process, I cleaned up a huge amount of redundant code, modified the existing code to take advantage of the new classes and functions of GEO my WP v4.0, enhanced the search queries of the different extensions for better performance, and improved other areas of the extensions. This had resulted in a better file/code structure, and a noticeably much smaller code across the different extensions and GEO my WP. Code that will be much easier for me to maintain going forward. In addition, some new features were added to some extensions as well as a very few features were deprecated.

GEO my WP v4.0 Beta 2 Changes

BuddyBoss Integration

Integration of GEO my WP with the BuddyBoss Platform and Theme had been on my to-do list for a while and is finally ready. New "Buddyboss" search form and search results template files were added to the different Members Locator and Groups Locator ( requires the Groups locator extension ) forms. It is included with the Members Locator forms of GEO my WP core plugin, as well as with the Global Maps, and the AJAX Forms extensions. The new Buddyboss template files inherit their styles from the Buddyboss theme which makes GEO my WP forms look like part of the theme.

Search Form Filters Modal Box

One of the new features added to the search form is the "Filters Modal Box". This is a popup modal box that displays some of the form filters inside it. This feature can be useful when having many filters in the search form and we wish to keep the search form minimal. Enabling this feature will display a "Filters" button inside the search form that will toggle the popup modal box.

fSelect Library

The "Smartbox" feature of the Premium Settings extension does no longer support jQuery Chosen, and instead it now support the fSelect library. That is, in addition to the Select2 library. So you can now choose between fSelect or Select2 for the Smartbox feature.

The above are only a few of the changes that took place in GEO my WP v4.0 beta-2 and the first beta of the extensions. However, a lot had changed in the back-end, front-end, and under the hood. So I might still update this post with additional changes and information. Until then, you are welcome to test the new versions and find out for yourself.

You can download the beta versions of the premium extensions from your account page ( an active license key is required ).

Note that the only extensions that are not yet ready for GEO my WP v4.0 are the Nearby Locations and the Multiple Locations extensions. I am going to start working on those extensions this coming week.

Please note that I rewrote all the premium extensions almost from scratch. And many changes took place in GEO my WP v4.0 beta 2 as well. Because of that, bugs are expected. So please use the comments below to report any bugs, typos, styling issues, or any feedback you would like to share.

Thanks,
