    Better Search v2.2.4 – security fix

    I have released version 2.2.4 of Better Search (v2.2.3 was a short release) which fixes one very important security issue that was reported by Ryan Dewhurst. Another key change in this release is the use of query variables and ajax to track the searches as well as some hardening across all PHP files. If you’re running v2.2.2, please upgrade to this release now. Changes in Better Search v2.2.4 and v2.2.3 Searches are now tracked using Query Variables Fixed security issue.

    AutoClose v2.0.0

    I’ve released a major update to Auto-Close Comments, Pingbacks and Trackbacks a.k.a AutoClose v2.0.0. The last update to this plugin was in 2015 and this has continued to work with the newer versions of WordPress. Autoclose is an easy to use WordPress plugin that allows you to automatically close comments, pingbacks and trackbacks on your posts. You also have some buttons that let you delete post revisions, delete pingbacks and trackbacks. I was cleaning up broken links on Techtites and realised most of these were pingbacks and trackbacks. I wanted an easy way to just delete them all! Hence, AutoClose v2.0.0. You’ll need to reactivate the plugin The plugin file…

    WordPress plugin updates – Jan/Feb 2019

    Over the Christmas break, I spent quite a bit of time rationalising my WordPress plugins including closing several plugins which I decided I won’t be updating, especially those with very lower viewers. I’m hoping to be a bit more regular in updating my WordPress plugins this year and also fleshing out a much pending documentation for all of them. I’ve managed to be fairly active on the updates and I updated four plugins since the start of the year. All these have had their respective release posts on the WebberZone blog. If you’re here for just my plugin updates, I recommend subscribing to the newsletter there. Better Search I released…

    Where did they go from here rebrand and v2.2.0 update

    I’ve released v2.2.0 of Where did they go from here. This update comes with new features, bug fixes and, most importantly, a rebrand of the plugin. Starting v2.2.0, the plugin is called WebberZone Followed Posts and has a new home. This completes the transfer of yet another of my plugins under the WebberZone umbrella. The rebrand of this plugin has been on my todo list for a long time. Although Where did they go from here was an accurate representation of what the plugin did, what it really did was display a list of posts that visitors follow on your site. My hope is that with the new name, the…

    Top 10 v2.5.6

    I’ve released Top 10 v2.5.6 which adds a new tool under the Top 10 > Tools page which allows you to recreate the PRIMARY KEY in the tables. This provides a much needed fix to a bug in 2.5.5 where the primary key got lost in several installs likely because the dbDelta function didn’t work as intended. This follows two bug fix releases over the past several weeks particularly around compatibility with the Settings API that was introduced in Top 10 v2.5 where things didn’t work properly in some installs.
