Stray Quotes 1.9.9

July 6, 2009

This revision addresses few minor issues and makes little changes.
from the changelog:

* 1.9.9 Changed: the way locale files are loaded;
Changed: the way the settings page has to check validity of the URLs (hopefully more accurate now);
Changed: it is now not mandatory to include the variables in author or source links on the settings page;
Added: chapter in the Help page dedicated to solving potential HTTPS problems (thanks to Andy for helping with this);
Fixed: replacement of & char in the links (thanks to Ian for pointing this out).

As always, you can download from the WordPress repository.

So we got to version 1.9.9.
I welcome suggestions on what new feature(s) should version 2 have.
Recently tagging and different layout settings for each widget were asked for. In the past, some asked for the ability to add images to the quotes. If you care, feel free to share your ideas about this. Here or on the plugin main page. Thanks!

I am also looking for translators! They must be willing to keep their localization regularly updated… Stray Random Quotes has only four localizations, some of them (such as Chinese) quite not up do date. So if you’re willing to volunteer, whatever language it is that you know, come forward. Thanks!


new blog and Stray Random Quotes 1.9.8 (a tiny update)

June 30, 2009

You might have noticed that I am moving all wordpress-plugins-related materials out of my journal. They did not belong there, and it was absurd to have them aside.

Lines of code is now a separated entity that will deal with my wordpress plugins plus other IT related experiences I’d like to share. The moving process isn’t entirely over, the whole make-up is not on yet, so please bear with the oddities for a while.

I also have updated Stray random quotes, to version 1.9.8. I am not making this revision public on the wordpress repository since it is a small fix, of a bug that affected only those who used ajax on widgets or shortcodes or template tags limited to a contributor.
From the changelog:

Fixed: a small bug caused contributors not to be considered when using AJAX.

let me know in the comments what you make of this transfer ~ if you care.
