Weblogs.us just went through a major server upgrade, which now should result in less downtime. The new website isn’t ready yet, as I need to figure out the WordPress XML-RPC API, and until then I can’t complete RPC-heir, the XML-RPC recently updated blogs plug-in. Look out for some updates in October, with several plug-in releases, and the launch of the new Weblogs.us homepage.
Moo.wp, the mootoolkit manager plug-in for WordPress is now considered stable and acceptable for mass distribution. Build 30, also know as 1.0, now includes moo.dom for DOM support if the prototype.lite library is used. More updates may come with time, but as for now development for moo.wp is completed. Grab 1.0 from the moo.wp page.
Come and get it while it’s hot. The mootoolkit manager for WordPress is available now for per-release testing. Just go on the side bar to Moo.wp to arrive at the plug-in’s page. This release is fully functional and ready for developer integration. For plug-in writers, just check for the moowp_display() function to verify that moowp is installed and working. Release 2, or rather per-release 2 contains moo.fx 1.2.3, moo.fx.pack 1.2.4, moo.AJAX 1.0, prototype.lite, and prototype 1.4.0. On the backend there are idiot-resistant checks that keep dependencies fulfilled to reduce errors. Hopefully this will be helpful for some one out there.
That’s right; Testimonials beta 2 will be ready for public consumption in a day or so. Code cleaning takes place on a regular basis now, as the code becomes more mature. Only one major admin panel change could be made, in which a few options would be available to set instead of in the plug-in file, but that is planed to be included in beta 2. More security features made their way into beta 2, including the ability to remove html tags from testimonials.
Today I learned something, well to be truthful I already knew it existed; I just never tired using it. I am talking about the use template option for WordPress pages and posts. The method allows for my Archives page to now work, which is a combination of handwritten code along with some code from K2 and of course using the Extended Live Archives plug-in for WordPress. Anyways, the Archives page now works and fully replaces the old side bar archives menu that took up a fair amount of space.
