Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic 1.1.1

Menu Magic banner

Announcing the immediate availability of Breadcrumb NavXT Menu Magic 1.1.1. This version adds compatibility with the forthcoming Breadcrumb NavXT 5.5.0. Additionally, it fixes a bug with the title finding logic that could result in the selection of an incorrect title if a filter using the_title prevented blank titles from being returned by get_the_title().

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).

Order Bender 0.7.2

Introducing Order Bender 0.7.2. This version fixes two bugs in the previous release, 0.7.0. These bugs relate to cases when a preferred term had not been selected for a post. Previously, it was possible to cause Breadcrumb NavXT to throw an error if a preferred category was not set due to improperly handling this case by the new code taking advantage of the new bcn_pick_post_term filter in Breadcrumb NavXT 5.4.0.

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.

Order Bender 0.7.0

Introducing Order Bender 0.7.0. This version adds code that takes advantage of new features in Breadcrumb NavT 5.4, allowing terms without parents to be the the preferred term for a post’s hierarchy as presented by Breadcrumb NavXT.

I know I said in the last release that Order Bender will make it into the official WordPress.org plugin repository so everyone will get update notifications. The truth is, it likely will not make it into the WordPress.org plugin repository. The Breadcrumb NavXT specific functionality introduced in this version will make its way into a Breadcrumb NavXT extension plugin. So, 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!
