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.

Breadcrumb NavXT 5.2.2

This is the second, bug fix release of the 5.2 branch of Breadcrumb NavXT. It fixes a bug, introduced in 5.2.1, where the current item would only use the internal default breadcrumb templates rather than the correct breadcrumb template from the settings. Additionally, the set of translations that ship with Breadcrumb NavXT were updated to include all current translations with 90% or higher completeness. Finally, a bug in the logic for the multisite settings mode warning in the settings page (when BCN_SETTINGS_USE_NETWORK is defined) has been fixed, previously it would throw PHP warnings.

As always, you can grab the latest version of Breadcrumb NavXT from the Breadcrumb NavXT page. If you experience any issues with this version of Breadcrumb NavXT, please leave a comment on this post detailing the issue.

Breadcrumb NavXT 5.2.1

This is the first, and hopefully only, bug fix release of the 5.2 branch of Breadcrumb NavXT. Four bugs relating to the breadcrumb trail for attachments were fixed, a bug relating to support for search pretty permalinks, a bug relating to how empty URLs are handled by Breadcrumb NavXT, and a bug in the text domain and domain path in the plugin header were fixed.

For the attachment bugs, attachments to the front page and the page post type now have the proper breadcrumb trail generated, without PHP warnings. Additionally, media that has not been attached to a post/page now have proper breadcrumb trails generated.

As always, you can grab the latest version of Breadcrumb NavXT from the Breadcrumb NavXT page. If you experience any issues with this version of Breadcrumb NavXT, please leave a comment on this post detailing the issue.
