Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins July 2008 Update

Here is my July 2008 WordPress plugins update containing all my 15 WordPress plugins. All of them should work on WordPress 2.5 as well as WordPress 2.6. It is not tested for any version below that.

In general, most of the updates are bug fixes. These updates in theory should be able to work till WordPress 2.7 when it comes out end of this year.

My new semester will begin on 2nd week August 2008, and hence I will be busy with my school work. So no updates to my plugins will be out till the end of this year unless it is a critical bug or a security issue.

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

    Hi,

    I am using your plugins and like them. Recently downloaded your WP-PostRatings 1.31 plugin for my wordpress 2.5.1 version website.

    It worked fine (rating posts) but when I want to show highest rated posts on the sidebar (using the widget) or even using the codes you give in usage page for outside the loop, they dont work?!?

    I get:
    Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in ……/wp-content/plugins/wp-postratings/wp-postratings.php on line 637

    I read your post about this error and you say php5 is needed. I use hostgator and they have php5.

    Can you pls help?
    Thanks and regards.

    Hello Lester,

    first I wanna thank you for the great plugins you released so far. They are among the best ones.

    Now, a couple of things.

    I made a simple modification to the WP-DownloadManager 1.31 in order to make it WordPress MU ready. You build the default options for the “download path” and the “download path URL” keeping in mind a simple WordPress installation. The plugin as you released use so the same download path for each blog in the WPMU network.

    I changed the file wp-downloadmanager, replacing the lines 1186-1187 with the following ones:

    global $blog_id;
    if (isset($blog_id)) {
    add_option(‘download_path’, WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/blogs.dir/’ . $blog_id . ‘/files/downloads/’, ‘Download Path’);
    add_option(‘download_path_url’, WP_CONTENT_URL.’/blogs.dir/’ . $blog_id . ‘/files/downloads/’, ‘Download Path URL’);
    }
    else {
    add_option(‘download_path’, WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/files/downloads/’, ‘Download Path’);
    add_option(‘download_path_url’, WP_CONTENT_URL.’/files/downloads/’, ‘Download Path URL’);
    }

    By the way, I also added the dir “downloads” at the end of the path, because it seems cleaner to me.

    Moreover, I modified the rows 1213-1214 in the same above file with the following ones:

    if(!is_dir(WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/blogs.dir/’ . $blog_id . ‘/files/downloads/’)) {
    mkdir(WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/blogs.dir/’ . $blog_id . ‘/files/downloads/’, 0777, true);

    I hope you will choose to integrate this modifications in the official version, so that I will not be compelled to port them in your next releases of the plugin.

    Ah, one more thing: it would be nice (but not strictly necessary) to change the “nice urls” in wp-downloadmanager from “/download/” to “/download/slug-of-the-download-name”. What do you think about it?

  6. Lester Chan Post author

    @Nemo, Thanks for the modifications, I will add them into 1.40 =D Regarding the slug name it will require more work then id to check for it.

  7. Nemo

    @Lester: good, I am glad of that. The 1.40 release will be the next one?
    Regarding the slug, well, I guessed that! ;)

    Bye bye.

  8. Nemo

    Whoops, the second modification is not complete: it works only on MU.

    This is the correct one:

    if (isset($blog_id)) {
    if(!is_dir(WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/blogs.dir/’ . $blog_id . ‘/files/downloads/’)) {
    mkdir(WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/blogs.dir/’ . $blog_id . ‘/files/downloads/’, 0777, true);
    }
    }
    else {
    if(!is_dir(WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/files/downloads/’)) {
    mkdir(WP_CONTENT_DIR.’/files/downloads/’, 0777, true);
    }
    }

    Noted, I think I going to change to /files/ instead of /files/downloads/ as that is the default directory for wp-downloadmanager =D

    I’m also getting the Warning: cannot yet handle MBCS in html_entity_decode()! in /wp-postratings/wp-postratings.php on line 637. My host uses php 5.2.5 so it should work. Any known fixes?

    Hi there,
    I am using WP-DBManager and have updated to the latest version.
    All work fine but “E-mail database backup file to: email@adress” won’t send any Backup file.
    With click on Email button it opens a blanc page and nothing happens.
    Any idea what is going wrong?

    Thanks
