Breadcrumb NavXT Polylang Extensions 1.0.0

Introducing Breadcrumb NavXT Polylang Extensions. This plugin improves Breadcrumb NavXT’s support for Polylang, at plugin that facilities multi-lingual content on WordPress based sites.

While Breadcrumb NavXT mostly works with Polylang, the deficiencies outlined in Breadcrumb NavXT and WPML Compatibility apply to compatibility with Polylang as well. With Breadcrumb NavXT Polylang Extensions, string based settings within Breadcrumb NavXT and Custom Post Type root pages are translatable within Polylang.

Features

  • Automatically links to the correct Custom Post Type “root page” for the current language
  • Makes Breadcrumb NavXT settings that are strings available for translation via Polylang
  • Improves Breadcrumb NavXT widget’s Polylang compatibility

Breadcrumb NavXT WPML Extensions 1.1.0

Announcing the immediate availability of Breadcrumb NavXT WPML Extensions 1.1.0. This version switches to the WPML 3.2+ API for translating strings. Backwards compatibility with WPML 3.1 (and older) is maintained. However, users of other plugins (Polylang) that provide emulations of the WPML API may no longer work. Speaking of which, Polylang will get its own extension in early 2016. Additionally, a bug that prevented updated setting strings from Breadcrumb NavXT from showing up in the string translation screen on non-multisite installs in a timely matter.

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).

Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic 1.1.0

Announcing the immediate availability of Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic 1.1.0. New to this version is support for UberMenu’s Dynamic Posts and Dynamic Terms. If a post is in, or is a decedent of a post in, the Dynamic Post menu listing, that structure is reflected in the breadcrumb trail. Likewise, if a post is a member of a term that is represented in the Dynamic Term menu listing, that structure is reflected in the breadcrumb trail.

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).

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.

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.
