Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins October 2007 Update

As promised, I have release updates to 12 of my plugins and added 2 new plugins. All of them are compatible with WordPress 2.3 but not all of them are backward compatible with WordPress 2.1 or 2.2.

The 2 new plugins are WP-DownloadManager and WP-PluginsUsed. As the name of the plugins suggest, WP-DownloadManager simply enhanced your WordPress by adding a simple download manager to it. WP-PluginsUsed will displays both active and inactive plugins that you are using in your WordPress blog.

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

Development Version Of My Plugins

For those who want the latest development version of my plugins to go along with WordPress 2.3, do the following:

  1. Go to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile/GamerZ
  2. Choose the plugins you want
  3. Click “Other Versions” (If you can’t find this link, just click on “Download Plugin”)
  4. Scroll down to the “Other Versions” section
  5. Click on “Development Version”

The development version should be the final version that I will release unless some last minute bug comes out.

I intend to officially release the final version a few days after WordPress 2.3 goes out the door instead of along side with the release of WordPress 2.3.

Error: Cannot redeclare

I got 3 reports regarding and error that says “Cannot redeclare function …”. 2 from here and 1 from here.

This is likely that you did not follow the upgrading instructions as stated in the readme.html (but I maybe wrong though).

When updating a plugin, please make sure you DEACTIVATE the plugin first before launching your FTP software to overwrite the files. BUT the best way is to delete that particular plugin folder altogether instead of overwriting it.

When updating WordPress, always DELETE everything EXCEPT your .htaccess, wp-config.php and wp-content folder. After that, then you upload the files in the zip that you have downloaded and run upgrade.php.

WP-Print And WP-EMail On WP 2.3

Someone reported to me that WP-Email is not working on this site, and after some checking, I also found out that WP-Print is also not working due to the extra / that WordPress generates for wp-print and wp-email permalink structure in WP 2.3.

WP-EMail has another problem which took me 4 hours just go pin-point it. Apparently when it includes wp-email.php and in wp-email.php there is a add_filter(‘the_title’) which hooks onto the title filter. For some reasons, the core WordPress function get_the_title() is casing the server to throw an error. In order to bypass it I have to create a new function to emulate something like the get_the_title() function.

I have since fixed all the bugs that I mentioned above and now WP-Print and WP-EMail will only work for WP2.3 and nothing below it. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
