Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins June 2008 Update (Wave 1)

Here is the first wave of my June 2008 plugins update containing 11 plugins. The remaining 4 plugins (WP-Ban, WP-DBManager, WP-DownloadManager and WP-PostViews) shall be in wave 2. All of them should work only on WordPress 2.5. It is not tested for any version below that.

The most general noticeable change would be the path to the plugin is now fixed. Previously it was nested in another folder and I got several hate mails because of that. Since the path problem has been solved, the Automatic Plugin Upgrade should work in theory.

Be sure to read the readme.html and checkout the changelog for more information and most importantly NOTE THE TABS AT THE TOP

    Why in the world did you change the insert poll text to [poll id="x"]???

    I didn’t even realize this until I just looked at a few of my polls and all of them showed my most recent poll rather than the correct ones. So now I’m supposed to go back and edit all of my previous posts to change it to “poll id=” and as a result a bunch of my previous post formatting is going to get screwed up thanks to WordPress.

    I love the poll plugin but this is a major inconvenience. Grrr.

    Hey, how can I remove the stars in the “highest rated” widget (see on my website in the left sidebar)?

    I tried to alter the template for ‘Highest Rated’ but obviously the widget does not use the template…

    Other things I injected in Lester’s code in the version before were continuous numbers like in an ordered list (). But this time he confused me, I don’t even find the function get_highest_rated…

  3. Michael

    Found a solution hint in the forum, “Go To WP-Admin -> Design -> Widgets -> Most Rated Widget OR Highest Rated Widget. Click on the Configure icon and then set the post title cut off characters to 0″ makes wp-postratings widget use the editable templates.

    Thanks for the nice plugin!

    Just a heads up, I don’t think sticky works w/ “future posted” posts. Can anyone second this? TIA

    PS. I’m using the latest WP-Sticky and The Future is Now 1.0 plugin.

  5. Sherwin

    @Lester: You may take a look at a test-install here, http://beta.thinkpile.com/wp-sticky-test/. It only has the plugins which you stated (enabled and under /plugins dir). Sticky options are default: No, No, and ‘Announcement’. Default WP fresh-install settings as well (except for permalink).

    I HTH. TIA

    PS. Keep up the great work!

    Did you sticky it or make it an announcement?

    If future post did modify the default sql query that wordpress generates, it will be conflicted with WP-Sticky.

    Hey. I hope this gives more of a better outlook. I updated the page, and it list the following entries like this now:

    * 2008-07-04 6:00:47 am. Announcement
    * 2008-07-04 5:55:20 am. Announcement
    * 2009-07-01 7:00:43 am. Future
    * 2009-06-30 12:13:42 pm. Future Sticky
    * 2009-06-30 1:09:45 pm. Future
    * 2008-07-04 7:00:18 am. Future Sticky
    * 2008-07-04 8:00:31 am. Future
    * 2008-06-30 12:52:39 pm. Sticky
    * 2008-06-30 12:53:02 pm. Regular
    * 2008-06-30 12:51:18 pm. Regular

    So, is this how it should act (i.e. Announcements > Future Sticky > Future > Sticky > Regular), about right?

    If so, we can also derive that a Future Sticky is only higher in precedence than a Future for that given day in the future. I.e.

    * 2009-07-01 7:00:43 am. Future
    * 2009-06-30 12:13:42 pm. Future Sticky
    * 2009-06-30 1:09:45 pm. Future
    * 2008-07-04 7:00:18 am. Future Sticky
    * 2008-07-04 8:00:31 am. Future

    That about the right behavior we should be getting? TIA

  8. Sherwin

    Alright, sounds good. I’ll keep the precedence in mind.

    PS. A bit out of the sticky-side of things, but why is this so?

    * 2009-07-01 7:00:43 am. Future
    * 2009-06-30 12:13:42 pm. Future Sticky
    * 2009-06-30 1:09:45 pm. Future

    Is it more on the SQL-side? Just wondering… TIA

    PageNavi plugin can’t work with categories,
    with this code:

    1) $offset=$numpost*($paged-1);
    else $offset=0;//
    query_posts(“cat=-1,-8,-14
