More plugins releases soon

WP Super Cache, Domain Mapping and Sitewide Tags are all getting quite some attention.

Ron and I have been busy with Domain Mapping and Sitewide Tags.
A new version of Domain Mapping was released a few days ago with a couple of bug fixes and also a new feature that allows you to ignore the “primary domain” on your blogs. It has the potential for duplicate content if a blog can be found at multiple domains but some people need this feature. With careful organisation of content this can be avoided.

Sitewide Tags is almost ready for a new release. Ron added thumbnail support last week, and I checked in code last weekend to fill in the tags page with posts made before the plugin was installed. It needs testing, and if you’re any good at PHP please take a look at the development version on the download page.

WP Super Cache has had a number of bugs squished, preloading works better – it cancels immediately when you click that Cancel button. It also prints the url of the current post being preloaded which is handy if you’re not sure it’s working or not.
I added some extra debugging to make sure the homepage is cached correctly, but you have to enable “extra paranoid checks”. It works fine on my sites but I would really appreciate feedback if you have WordPress installed in a directory, installed in a directory different to where the site is or whatever configuration you might have. If it doesn’t work, the only side effect is that the homepage won’t be cached so it’s easy to spot when there are problems. I want these checks to be active all the time when the new version is finally released so it’s important this works correctly. Grab the development version from the download page and give it a whirl!

Don’t worry about upgrading when the next versions of Super Cache and Sitewide Tags are released. The version number in the development version is the same as the current release so a new version notice will still appear on your dashboard.

I almost forgot. Cookies for Comments has been worked on too! I added code that keeps an eye on how long a visitor reads a post before they post a comment. If the comment is made faster than a certain time the comment is automatically caught. I’ve used it over the weekend here and elsewhere and it’s catching a good number of “real looking” but spammy comments! The development version on the download page is what you’re looking for if you want to try this.

I think I need a P2 blog to post these sort of updates. Blog titles are such a pain sometimes.

  1. Thx a lot for your works.
    WordPress MU Domain Mapping you saying got update but i cant see update in my panel because using it as mu-plugins. Is there any way to get an email or any notify when a mu-plugin updated?


    1. I thought “must use” plugins were included in the notification system built into WordPress but obviously not. You can install the plugin in wp-content/plugins/ too and network activate it. I just tried that and it works fine.

      I’ll update the readme.txt shortly.


    1. You’re welcome Donnacha! I’m half thinking of converting all my sites into one MS site now that I’ve moved all my blogs onto one VPS.

      ‘Bout time I suppose!


  2. Thanks for great work with plugins.
    Could You please add small changes to disable notices in DEBUG mode with Domain Mapping?

    is_site_admin() => is_super_admin()

    And
    – $protocol = ( ‘on’ == strtolower( $_SERVER['HTTPS' ] ) ) ? ‘https://’ : ‘http://';
    + $protocol = (!empty($_SERVER['HTTPS' ]) AND ‘on’ == strtolower( $_SERVER['HTTPS' ] ) ) ? ‘https://’ : ‘http://';

    Notices in polish:

    Notice: Undefined index: HTTPS in /xxxxx/public/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-mu-domain-mapping/domain_mapping.php on line 512

    Notice: Korzystanie z is_site_admin od wersji 3.0 uznawane jest za przestarzałe! Zamiast tego użyj is_super_admin(). in /xxxxx/public/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3237

  3. Hello, if you’ll allow me to report an “incompatibility with another extremely popular plugin” report, wp-supercache produces bad results with the wp-postratings plugin.

    This is a tricky situation since neither supercache nor postratings is directly responsible, but maybe you’d appreciate to know, in case a quick hack could solve the problem (who knows !).

    Simply said : visitors are served cached or supercached copies of a blog post and they’re not shown up-to-date post ratings. It’s only when they click to give a rating than the real actual ratings are re-loaded and are shown.
    As a result, many less users are keen to vote (there are very few votes to be shown on a fresh post), and they might believe the blog isn’t working correctly (passing from 1 votes to 15 when the real values are loaded).

    Once again : it’s not supercache’s fault, this is an incompatibility problem.
    But if you could find a miracle solution to make the post ratings NOT be cached, it would be very nice :)

    Best day to you,
    Oliver


    1. Oliver – this is addressed in the readme file. The postratings plugin has to be updated so it uses Javascript to load the initial rating of a post.


  4. Hi there,

    On a multisite install of WordPress (3.0), can I test super-cache on one or two blogs before converting the whole site? There are 16000 posts in the main home page which are added to from the other blogs and around 30 are generated each day by the other 17 blogs in the site.


  5. I’m not able to publish all posts from a single blog, getting a weird URL string with the nonce and browser goes into “redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.”

    When I tried “all posts” it only did a random number of posts, no where near the number of posts across the board.


  6. Sorry, should have noted, this is the latest dev version of the SWT plugin. Also, I noticed that theirs now a Super Admin page for SWT. However, on the main options page you get an error because add_action(‘wpmu_options’,’sitewide_tags_options’) should probably be ‘wpmu_options’,’swt_manager’) or removed? If I change that to swt_manager, I can’t actually update the option from the main options page because the check for page=”sitewidetags” in update_wpmu_options.
