Update 3 to Breadcrumb NavXT Premium Extensions

The current crop of five premium extensions received a minor update today. With this update, all of the premium extensions now use a new API for license and update management. Additionally, an incorrect string in the settings page for Menu Magic was fixed.

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.

Breadcrumb NavXT 5.6.0

Holy incremental improvements Batman! Breadcrumb NavXT 5.6.0 ships with two new features and two bug fixes. On the feature front, a fourth parameter was added to the two display functions. This parameter bypasses the internal breadcrumb caching mechanism. Additionally, in the settings page, the breadcrumb template settings are now multiple line text boxes. Previously, the default breadcrumb templates were getting quite long and hard to edit on a single line. This should make editing of the breadcrumb template easier.

Two bugs were squashed is this release. The first involved Breadcrumb NavXT inappropriately adding the blog breadcrumb into the breadcrumb trail for search result pages. The second bug previously allowed the blog breadcrumb options to be available in the settings page even when a Posts Page was not set.

Translations

As explained in the Breadcrumb NavXT Translations Moving to Language Packs article, Breadcrumb NavXT has moved away from shipping translations with the plugin. This is the first release to ship without any included translations, all translations are available via language packs, or from the Breadcrumb NavXT Translation Project.

If you would like to contribute to translating Breadcrumb NavXT, please visit the Breadcrumb NavXT Translation Project. A big thanks to all of the translators that have contributed to the translations in the past and continue to contribute.

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.

WP Lynx 1.2.0

Presenting WP Lynx 1.2.0: PDF thumbnail image support, multiple URL fetching, and a few under the hood improvements.

Prior to the 1.0.0 rewrite of the frontend interface, WP Lynx supported entering multiple URLs in the URL field and fetching them. This behavior has been reintroduced in 1.2.0, simply add a space between each of the URLs you want to fetch.

PDF support in the form of generating preview/thumbnail image for the first page of the PDF has been added. Since WordPress 4.7 is not available yet, this relies strictly on Imagick. The intent is to switch to the WordPress methods for 1.3.0.

On the bug fix front, a bug that caused Lynx Prints to fail to insert into some user’s post editor has been fixed. Additionally, pages lacking a HTML title element will no longer throw PHP warnings.

You can grab the latest WP Lynx on the WP Lynx WordPress.org plugin page.

Breadcrumb NavXT Title Trixx 1.3.0

Announcing the immediate availability of Breadcrumb NavXT Title Trixx 1.3.0. This version adds the ability to ignore the All-in-One SEO title, and instead use the Breadcrumb NavXT Title Trixx Alternate Title. This is accomplished via adding the following to a site specific plugin:

define('BCN_TTX_DISABLE_AIOSEO_TITLE', true);

Note that the above must be placed in a site specific plugin (or wp-config.php if you must); it will not work in a theme’s functions.php.

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).
