Breadcrumb NavXT Translations Moving to Language Packs

Breadcrumb NavXT is moving away from distributing language files starting with the 5.3.0 release (slated for early October). Rather than ship translations, Breadcrumb NavXT now supports language packs from WordPress.org. As of today, language packs through WordPress.org have been enabled for Breadcrumb NavXT.

For end users, only a few things will change. The first is the download size for Breadcrumb NavXT will be reduced. Second, only translation sets that are 100% complete are eligible for language pack inclusion. Previously, 90% completion of a language translation set was required to ship with Breadcrumb NavXT.

Due to this migration, translate.mtekk.us will be retired sometime in early October. Going forward, translation efforts should be made on the GlotPress install located at translate.wordpress.org. The good news is, ff you have a WordPress.org account, you can now help translate Breadcrumb NavXT.

Lastly, a mailing list to notify translators of impending Breadcrumb NavXT releases that require translation updates will still be maintained. An email announcing these changes has been sent to the translation team.

Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions 1.9.0

It has been quite awhile since the last release, but a new version of Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions is now available. Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions 1.9.0 adds a new breadcrumb display mode accessible through the bcn_display_list_multidim_children() function. This new mode populates the second dimension of a breadcrumb with it’s children rather than it’s peers as the standard bcn_display_list_multidim() function does. Additionally, support for calling either of the multidimensional display modes through Breadcrumb NavXT 5.3.0’s widget has been added.

Lastly, two bugs were fixed in this release. The first was an issue where the second dimension would not be populated for the current item if the current item was linked. The second was an issue where an “Empty Category” message would appear in the second dimension for terms without children or siblings.

You can grab Breadcrumb NavXT Multidimension Extensions from the WordPress.org plugin repository.

Update 2 to Breadcrumb NavXT Premium Extensions

The current three premium extensions to Breadcrumb NavXT, Breadcrumb NavXT WPML Extensions, Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic, and Breadcrumb NavXT Title Trixx, have received their second minor update today. In the previous release there was a bug where license activation via the “activate license” button could cause some settings in Breadcrumb NavXT to be unintentionally modified. Additionally, Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic has been updated to better support Breadcrumb NavXT 5.2 and 5.3.

The defect caused some HTML tags to be stripped from Breadcrumb NavXT settings fields that accepted HTML. This has been corrected in the latest release of Breadcrumb NavXT WPML Extensions, Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic, and Breadcrumb NavXT Title Trixx.

Users with valid and activated license keys should receive an update notification within the WordPress dashboard and be able to use the update mechanism to update (just like with any plugin in the WordPress.org repository).

Visit the Breadcrumb NavXT Premium Extension Store to check out all of the updated premium extensions.

Order Bender 0.6.0

The previous version of Order Bender stopped working with recent versions of WordPress due to a change in the underlying functionality of the get_the_terms filter. This release rectifies that issue. Note, however, that this version requires WordPress 4.2 or newer.

I know I said this on the last release, but eventually, Order Bender will make it into the official WordPress.org plugin repository so everyone will get update notifications. Until then, you’ll have to manually update (by first deleting and then re-installing).

Installation is quite easy:

  1. Download the Master branch zip archive from GitHub
  2. In your WordPress Dashboard navigate to the plugin uploader (Plugins > Add New > Upload)
  3. Upload the zip archive
  4. Activate and enjoy!

You can keep up with day to day development via the Order Bender’s GitHub Repository.
