Better Search

Better Search v1.3.4

Better Search

I’ve released Better Search v1.3.4 today. The biggest addition which has long been pending is the addition of a meta tag that will allow you to set the search results page to stop being indexed. Enabled by default, you can choose to disable the meta tag if needed.

This should be definitely better for SEO and recommended by Google. Setting the meta tag should eventually stop Google and other search engines from unnecessarily indexing the search results pages.

This plugin also adds support for Rocket Loader and fixes some minor bugs in the heatmap. I’ve also added a brand new header image for the plugin listed in the WordPress.org directory. How does it look?

As usual, if you’re looking for support, please create a new post in the WordPress.org support forum.

Changes in v1.3.4

  • New: Option to add noindex,nofollow meta tag to the header
  • Modified: Tracking script now set to bypass Rocket Loader
  • Fixed: Class of header row on search results page. You can now add your custom styles to bsearch_nav_row1 and bsearch_nav_row2
  • Fixed: Widget search heatmap colours were not loaded properly

Add to Feed General Options

Add to Feed and Add to Footer v1.3

I released v1.3 of Add to Feed and Add to Footer plugins for WordPress. Existing users should be able to upgrade directly from within their Dashboards.

Add to Feed General Options

Add to Feed General Options

Add to Feed is a feed enhancement plugin that allows you to easily add a copyright notice and custom text/HTML to your WordPress blog feed. The custom text can be entered before and/or after the content of your blog post.

Add to Footer allows you to add any HTML or JS code to the footer for your WordPress theme. This ensures that you don’t need to keep adding the same code in case you change your theme. Simply enter the settings once and you’re good to go!

These are both light weight versions of my plugin Add to All which combines the features of both above but is still pending a code refresh.

Changes in Add to Feed v1.3

  • New: Completely redesigned admin interface
  • New: Option to disable the admin-wide notice when the plugin is disabled
  • New: Customise the title text that will be displayed.
  • Fixed: Integration with feed will also work well with excerpts
  • Fixed: PHP notices when WP_DEBUG is set to true

Changes in Add to Footer v1.3

  • New: Support for Google Analytics’ new Universal Analytics
  • New: Admin interface
  • New: Disable admin notice if the plugin is disabled
  • Fixed: Language initialisation and renamed localisation to add-to-footer
Better Search - Seamless integration

Better Search v1.3.3

I pushed out v1.3.3 of Better Search. The plugin replaces your WordPress search results with highly relevant search results.

This version comes with a brand new responsive admin interface similar to my other plugins as well an option to disable tracking of admins and editors. My favourite new addition to the plugin is the seamless integration mode. This mode no longer needs any search templates and gives you results completely integrated within your WordPress theme. This makes it completely compatible with all WordPress themes. This will soon be the new default option for fresh installs.

Better Search - Seamless integration

Seamless integration will give you relevant search results just like how your theme delivers it!

If you use get_bsearch_heatmap manually in your themes, please be aware of the new syntax. The function now accepts a big set of parameters in an array format. All these are optional and if you choose to not pass one of these then it will default to the option set in the Settings page.

As usual, if you’ve got any questions, please make a post in the Support Forum. And if you’re using the plugin, please do leave a good review.

All changes in v1.3.3

  • New: Responsive admin interface
  • New: Seamless integration mode. With this enabled, you can benefit from relevant search results displayed how your theme intended it to be!
  • Modified: Modified get_bsearch_heatmap to accept an array of parameters. If you’re using this function, please note the modified usage in the FAQ
  • New: Option to turn off tracking searches of Admins and Editors
  • Fixed: Widget initialisation
  • Modified: Reformatted code to follow WordPress PHP Standards

Top 10 Meta box

Top 10 v1.9.10.x

I pushed an update for Top 10 a few days ago which brings you some cool new features including the ability to edit counts, set thumbnails and improved shortcode options.

Following along the lines of Contextual Related Posts, Top 10 v1.9.10 brings a new meta box on your Edit Post / Page or Custom post type screen that allows you to set the custom thumbnail as well as edit the post count for the post.

Top 10 Meta box

Meta box on Edit screens will allow you to set the thumbnail and edit the post count

The meta box will use the same meta field as specified in the General Settings. If you’re using the default field name i.e. post-image and you’re using my other plugins Contextual Related Posts and Where did they go from here, then they will automatically recognise this thumbnail!

Another major change in the plugin is the use of the shortcode. You’re no longer restricted to three parameters as earlier, but all the options that can be passed to tptn_pop_posts(), which is all the settings that you can configure in the Settings page. Check out the function tptn_default_options if you’re curious for what is configurable.

The latest version of the plugin also brings the ability to turn off tracking for Editors. This is especially useful if you have a multi-user blog and Editors routinely edit posts and visit these posts.

As usual you can upgrade the plugin from within your WordPress admin. If you’re using Top 10, do consider giving it a 5-star review! If you got questions, please use the forum.

Emails and comments are not the best way to get support unless you’re willing to hire me to solve your problem related to Top 10!
