Dell WD15 vs TB15

WD15 on Top of TB15 Front View

In the time since I picked up my XPS 15 9550 and TB15, Dell has introduced a new USB C docking station, the Dell Dock WD15 (450-AEUO). It appears that this dock has officially replaced the TB15. The product page for the TB15 is no longer available, searching for “TB15” brings up the wireless dock and the WD15, and on the XPS15 page the TP15 is listed as “Currently not available”. Additionally, from some quite harsh reviews, it appears Dell had some issues with reliability and drivers for the TB15.

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).

Breadcrumb NavXT BuddyPress Extensions 0.1.1

The first issue fixed was the PHP warnings that appeared with BuddyPress 2.7.0. Please note, that the fix to the PHP warnings causes Breadcrumb NavXT BuddyPress Extensions 0.1.1 to require BuddyPress 2.6.0 or newer. Additionally, when a BuddyPress directory page has a parent, it will now appear in the breadcrumb trail.
