New Pricing, Feature Updates and WordPress 4.7 REST API

We have updated our pricing for our Simple Intranet suite of plugins to continue to provide exceptional value to our members. We have also introduced priority e-mail support for Large or Developer licence holders.  Based on customer demand, we now offer our ever-expanding Simple Files plugin for sale separately from the suite of intranet plugins. However, we continue to recommend using our Simple Intranet core plugin to allow you to create custom Groups (roles) for users to be assigned Simple Files permissions most effectively.

We are in the process of final testing on a compliance feature in Simple Files that will allow you to manage and track viewing/downloading of documents. We have updated both the forms and events calendar modules of our core Simple Intranet plugin, and continue to add features to our Simple Leave plugin as well.

With the introduction of WordPress version 4.7 which launches the new REST API, we especially recommend using increased security precautions. We also highly recommend using the free WordFence plugin who have identified some recent username vulnerabilities in user queries on public and private sites that run WordPress 4.7 which includes the REST API by default. Hosts such as Dreamhost also offer malware scans, SSL and other security precautions which are included in their WordPress optimized web hosting plans. We also strongly recommend regular backups of your WordPress site before updating WordPress core, plugins or themes.
