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

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.

WP-Email 2.20 Beta 1

I have added AJAX feature to WP-Email 2.20 because it has been requested quite a number of times. Now when you recommend your friend a post/page, it will be sent using AJAX.

I have updated this site from WP-Email 2.11 to WP-Email 2.20 Beta 1 to give you a live demo of the AJAX. Just click on any “Email This Post” link.

Changelog for WP-Email 2.20 Beta 1:

» NEW: AJAX Used To Email The Post/Page
» NEW: Most Emailed Widget Added
» NEW: Ability To Uninstall WP-EMail
» NEW: Uses WP-Stats Filter To Add Stats Into WP-Stats Page
» FIXED: Displaying Friend’s E-Mail Field Is Compulsory To Prevent Error
» FIXED: Method Of Storing SMTP Information Updated
» FIXED: If There Is No Trailing Slash In Your Permalink, WP-Email Will Add It For You

If you are interested in testing it for me:

WP-EMail 2.11, WP-Print 2.11

I have fixed 2 minor bugs for WP-EMail 2.11 and WP-Print 2.11. I did not bump the version number because a lot of hassle is needed. Instead I just update the zip file.

The 2 bugs are:

1. Unable to display feed properly if you are using [ email_link ] or [ print_link ] to embed the email/print link within the post.
2. 404 error if you are using a custom permalink structure without a / at the end.

Some Plugins Finalized

I have updated this site with the following plugins:
» WP-DBManager 2.11
» WP-Email 2.11
» WP-PageNavi 2.11
» WP-PostRatings 1.11
» WP-PostViews 1.11
» WP-Print 2.11
» WP-RelativeDate 1.11
» WP-Stats 2.11
» WP-Sticky 1.00

All of them should be finalized unless there is a last minute bug. I am testing WP-DBManager automatic scheduling of backing up of database, so far so good.

I hope I can release all of them on 1st June 2007. I am left with WP-Ban, WP-Polls and WP-UserOnline as documented on GaMerZ.Wiki.
