JavaScript In My Plugins II

I have completed the “update” process to my 5 of my plugins (WP-Polls, WP-PostRatings, WP-Email, WP-ServerInfo and WP-UserOnline) which use JavaScript.

  • WP-Polls and WP-PostRatings uses JavaScript on the frontend as well as the backend
  • WP-Email and WP-UserOnline uses JavaScript on the frontend only
  • WP-ServerInfo uses JavaScript on the backend only

Unfortunately the changes require at least WordPress 2.8 onwards to make use of the JavaScript enhancements in WordPress 2.8. I have updated this site to WordPress 2.8 Bleeding Edge aka WordPress 2.8 Nightly in order to test the JavaScript changes on a live site.

If you view the HTML source of this page, you will notice that only the CSS files get loaded in the header and the JavaScript gets loaded in the footer.

If you are running WordPress 2.8 bleeding edge, perhaps you can help me test out the plugins. Thanks in advanced 🙂

  1. error report to wp-postratings :
    on windows system server the Ratings Image is displaying properly, but on linux server the Ratings Image URL will be like “…/plugins/wp-postratings/images//rating_on.gif”, and the Ratings Image does not display. please repair the bug! thx!

  2. Are you talking about WP-PostRatings 2.50 Beta 1 or what? I can’t reproduce the problem. My dev machine is a Windows and this site you are seeing is a Linux and both works fine.

    I just double checked the code as well, no way it will produce “//” unless you did not choose the ratings style in WP-Admin -> Ratings -> Ratings Options. And I believed that is the case!

  3. Thanks for the updates

    WP-Postratings does not work with Simple Press Forum 2 – the old one didnt under WP 2.8 and neither does v2.50, something is amiss. We had to deactivate the ratings and stick with the forum sorry!

  4. I’ve had your blog in my bookmarks for a couple of days now and just wanted to say that I really love your articles! ^^
