    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. Detailed changelog in v2.5.6 2.5.6 Features: Added new button under Tools to recreate the PRIMARY KEYs 2.5.5 Bug fixes: Fixed…

    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…

    Top 10 v1.9.9.1

    A few hours back I uploaded a major release of Top 10, the top popular posts plugin for WordPress. This release adds several new features and I have hopefully squashed many pending bugs. First of all, the admin interface has received a major overhaul. It should flow better with the rest of your WordPress interface and should be more responsive especially on smaller screens and mobile devices. I’ve also cleaned up the text on many of the options and added explanations to several of the options in a hope to address many of the repetitive questions that I have been receiving. This release also includes new shortcodes and a better…

    Top 10 v1.9.8.5

    Late last night I pushed through a minor release of Top 10. v1.9.8.5 which mainly contains some tweaks to make your experience using the plugin better. Now, the author name that is displayed in the list (if you choose to do so), will be the Public Name which is what you set in the Profile page. There is a brand new function (“get_tptn_post_count_only“) that allows you to get just the count. Changes in Top 10 1.9.8.5 Modified: Including the author in the list will now use the Display Name which is set under “Display name publicly as” in the User Profile page Fixed: If the Thumbnail meta field is omitted…
