Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins June 2008 Update (Wave 1)

Here is the first wave of my June 2008 plugins update containing 11 plugins. The remaining 4 plugins (WP-Ban, WP-DBManager, WP-DownloadManager and WP-PostViews) shall be in wave 2. All of them should work only on WordPress 2.5. It is not tested for any version below that.

The most general noticeable change would be the path to the plugin is now fixed. Previously it was nested in another folder and I got several hate mails because of that. Since the path problem has been solved, the Automatic Plugin Upgrade should work in theory.

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

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):

Find:

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

Replace:

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

WP-ServerInfo

I have coded this plugin within a night. It enables you to display your server’s PHP information from “phpinfo()” and MYSQL information from “SHOW VARIABLES” on your Dashboard under the sub-tab called “WP-ServerInfo”. Here is a screenshot of it. I will release it along side with almost all my plugins updates for WordPress 2.1. Most of them will break with WordPress 2.0.x including this because I am using some of the functions available in WordPress 2.1 only.

If you are wondering what plugin I used to modify those dates to Today, Yesterday, 5 Days ago, 1 minute ago, etc. It is one of my plugin called WP-RelativeDate.
