FBP V18.0.0 is out, it fixes the Revert Bubble Chat option and has new options for customising the Trending Box
Changes in this release:
- Fixed: Hide sponsored posts (Hide Ads) option, some ads were getting past FBP’s filters previously, that has now been fixed. Previously the ad hiding would work no matter what Facebook language setting you chose, but since Facebook changed their code, in order for FBP to filter the ads correctly, you should either set your Facebook language to English, or else put the word for “Sponsored” in your own language into FBP’s Text Filter box.
- Fixed: Revert Bubble Chat option (Under the Chat Options heading). For people who don’t like the new Messenger bubble chat interface, this option fixes it to make the message inbox look more normal and user friendly.
- Fixed: Images in messenger not opening in the “lightbox” when clicked in Messenger
- Fixed: Hide graphical emoticons option now hides the streaming/floating reaction icons on live videos
- Fixed: Made floating reactions on Live videos match the custom reactions if set
- New: Trending Box options: Theres a new cogwheel button next to the heading of the Trending Box (see screenshot below), which when clicked lets you access FBP’s new Trending Options. You can choose to hide the Trending Box (if you hide it, and want it back again you can show it by un-ticking the “Hide Trending Topics” option under the “Hide Right Column Links” heading on the FBP options screen) You can choose to “AutoClick the “See More” link to show more of the Trending Topics in the Trending Box. There are also options to hide Specific Trending Topics categories (Politics, Science, Sports and Entertainment), and you can also choose to autoselect a specific category
