    Happy New Year 2016

    Happy New Year to everyone reading this. I wish you the very best for 2016. It’s definitely going to be more awesome than 2015. 2015 – Year in Review For a change at the start of 2015, I didn’t make any major resolutions, but instead decided to take the year as it came. What’s the point of resolutions when you don’t keep them, right? On work… 2015 started out to be a year like any other year, busy and in fact ended as busy as it started. However, that being said a good portion of the year was definitely better with me stepping up my role and desperately fighting to…

    Contextual Related Posts and Top 10 updates

    I pushed updates to Top 10 and Contextual Related Posts last week. The main changes are better support for WPML especially the ability to display the posts in the current post language. This could potentially cause some clashes with other plugins e.g. Polylang, which I am continuing to investigate. Another major change is to the text domain, i.e. what the plugins have used for translations. Following the announcement of the new translation system announced by WordPress.org, I’ve modified the text domains to match the plugin slugsi.e. contextual-related-posts and top-10 respectively. This will eventually result in lower plugin download files and most importantly localised and better maintained languages for Contextual Related Posts in your…

    Top 10 v2.2.3

    Following in the footsteps of Contextual Related Posts v2.2, I released Top 10 v2.2.3 with several new features, bug fixes and enhancements to existing features. This release also includes the almost-complete rebranding of Top 10 as a WebberZone plugin. As I mentioned before, WebberZone is the new platform (or should I say revamped) platform for my WordPress development which is currently focussed on developing GPL plugins (both free and premium). This release of Top 10 comes with a brand new interface to view the popular posts in the Admin area. It is better integrated and you can now sort the views easily across all your posts/pages and custom post types. You…

    Contextual Related Posts v2.2.0

    I’ve released v2.2.0 of my most popular plugin Contextual Related Posts today. It also marks an important moment in its development, as the plugin is almost completely rebranded and now available via WebberZone, a platform that will eventually host all my major WordPress projects. Contextual Related Posts v2.2.0 has several new features, some enhancements to existing features and some bug fixes. Existing users can upgrade the plugin via their Updates screen in the WordPress admin area. Two main features are the ability to turnoff related posts on a post by post basis as well as specify a set of manual related posts which are given a higher priority over the…

    Better Search v2.0

    Better Search just got massively better with v2.0.0. If you’ve been using WordPress’ default search engine then you’ll know by now that WordPress doesn’t give you relevant search results for your search terms. You’ll get posts that contain the search term ordered by date. Better Search completely replaces the inbuilt WordPress search engine by a contextual based search fetching you more relevant search results. For v2.0.0, I spent a lot of time completely cleaning up all the code, fixing a lot of bugs and adding in a tonne of new features. The biggest addition to the plugin is several new and many improved filters and actions that will allow developers…

    CRP Taxonomy Tools v1.1.0

    I pushed through a small, but important, update to Contextual Related Posts Taxonomy Tools, which is an addon to Contextual Related Posts. I’ve also developed this as an example for other developers to create addons to Contextual Related Posts. CRP Taxonomy Tools allows you to restrict the related posts generated by Contextual Related Posts to the same category and tag. At least, it used to until now. Support for Custom Taxonomies v1.1.0 now adds support to custom taxonomies as well. This is especially useful to custom post types where the quality of the related post may not be the most ideal set. e.g. if you’re running a movie review blog and you…

    Top 10 – Popular Posts for WordPress v2.1.0

    Following on the heels of Contextual Related Posts v2.1.0 from last week, I’ve released Top 10 – Popular Posts for WordPress v2.1.0 with several bug fixes and many new features. If you’re using this plugin and looking for support, please do not post a comment below, but instead create a new thread in the WordPress.org support forum or create a new issue in Github. Fix blog_id 0 errors Top v2.0 introduced a bug where in some cases, hits on some posts were recorded in the database with an ID of 0. Also new installs didn’t have their database properly set up for this. v2.1.0 fixes both these issues. Additionally, I’ve added a new…

    Contextual Related Posts v2.1.0

    After the major release of Contextual Related Posts v2.2.0, I’ve spent quite a bit of time over the past few weeks working on v2.1.0 which brings together several bug fixes, some optimisation and many new features. If you’re using this plugin and looking for support, please do not post a comment below, but instead create a new thread in the WordPress.org support forum or create a new issue in Github. If you’re just upgraded the plugin, remember to clear the cache and even better, reset the plugin settings. Remember to save any custom CSS code that you might be using.

    Happy New Year 2015!

    A happy new year to all the readers of my blog. May 2015 be a successful and happy year bringing you and your family good health and a lot of happiness! 2014 – Year in Review A year ago, I posted my 2013 year in review. Back then I set some personal goals and I must admit that I managed to miss most of them! (Note to self: Revisit year in review posts during the year). However, I am glad that I managed to keep at least a few of them and progressed on several of them. Although we didn’t visit the US and Canada this year due to a sudden change in plans, Ashwina and I…
