We have two (2) new exciting features to share with you all...

1. Data Export

With Europe's GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) quickly approaching (May 2018), we're looking at ways to make Champ fully GDPR compliant. After all, Champ is a forum app and data retention is, at its very core, a key feature. We'll have more news on this in April.

Again, if you're not familiar with GDPR, here's a resource for you: https://help.shopify.com/manual/your-account/GDPR

For now, you can export data from Champ. This is useful, say, if you ever want to migrate off of Champ (sad face). To learn more about this functionality, please refer to our guide: https://getchamp.net/guides/installation/#exporting-your-data

2. Custom User Avatars

By default, user avatars are pulled from Gravatar. This is still the default. But now, your users can override this avatar by uploading a custom avatar in the preference section of your forum. If a custom avatar is uploaded and the user chooses to display his or her avatar, then the custom avatar will be shown.
