My Plugins And WordPress 2.5

The current version of all my plugins will work on WordPress 2.5 PROVIDED you have upgraded your WordPress blog from WP 2.x to WP 2.5.

If you are using a fresh copy of WordPress 2.5 together with my plugins, it WILL NOT work as WordPress 2.5 changes the Activation Global Scope Of The Plugins. In simpler terms, it means that upon activation of my plugins in WP-Admin, it will not create the tables needed by the respective plugins.

To solve this problem temporary, do the following in polls.php (I am using WP-Polls as an example):


$wpdb->pollsq = $table_prefix.'pollsq';
$wpdb->pollsa = $table_prefix.'pollsa';
$wpdb->pollsip = $table_prefix.'pollsip';


global $wpdb;
$wpdb->pollsq = $wpdb->prefix.'pollsq';
$wpdb->pollsa = $wpdb->prefix.'pollsa';
$wpdb->pollsip = $wpdb->prefix.'pollsip';

Note the addition of the “global $wpdb;” and the replacement of “$table_prefix” with “$wpdb->prefix“.

I have updated WP-Polls, WP-ServerInfo, WP-Sticky and WP-UserOnline to work with WordPress 2.5. You can get them here at my downloads page (do note that they are still in beta). Those plugins that end with a “Beta 2” means it will work for WordPress 2.5.

Some of the updates are:

  • Making sure that the styling, alignment and color of the plugin matches WordPress 2.5
  • Fixes the “Activation Global Scope” issue
  • Updated WP-Polls TinyMCE plugin to work with TinyMCE 3.0
  • Added a summary of WP-ServerInfo as a Dashboard Widget
  • Added a summary of WP-UserOnline in the Right Now Dashboard Widget

  1. May the path you show with wp-polls word with wp-email too? Or how you got wp-email get working on your blog?

  2. Great Job works great in WordPress 2.5. One thing I am missing in your Plugins are German Versions 🙂 Any Chance your Plugins will be Translatet. Until now I adjustet it myself but what would make it much easier if all the Text comes from one File. Replace the File and voila the Plugin is Translated. I bet you have nothing to do and will jump on this right away 🙂 Just kidding but if you need any help let me know. I do speak a couple of languages. Greetings from Switzerland and again thanks for all your Hardwork.
