Google Forms v0.77-beta-1 available

This morning I uploaded beta-1 of Google Forms v0.77.  This release would only be of interest to users who are using the deprecated gform shortcode and ware worried about PHP warnings in the log file (see this post on the WordPress Support Forum).

The warnings were a result of the plugin looking for meta data which is stored with the Custom Post Type (recommended) usage of Google Forms.  The fix skips the check when using the gform shortcode thus eliminating the PHP warnings in the log file.

Unless there is a significant bug reported I will likely release this update fairly quickly as I view the changes made as very low risk.

More wp-SwimTeam bugs

Swim Team season must be approaching because I’ve had a couple more bugs reports and found two more myself while looking into other issues.  A couple these are limited to running under WordPress Multi-Site so most people / teams won’t run into them but there are some issues with report generation as well.  I am looking into these and will issue an update as quickly as I can.

wp-SwimTeam v1.44 released

This morning I released a minor update to wp-SwimTeam.  Unless you are running under WordPress multi-site, you will not see a difference.  Under Multi-Site there was a bug in the database query that pulls the list of users from the WordPress database.  Because not all users stored in the user table should be visible to a particular site, the list of users needs to be filtered and limited to just those who have access to the site.  It was this filter portion of the query which was wrong.

You can find the update on your Dashboard or in the WordPress plugin repository.

wp-SwimTeam User bug with Multi-Site

Today I learned of a bug with wp-SwimTeam where the list of Users associated with the site doesn’t get populated when running under WordPress multi-site.  This problem does not happen on standard installations of WordPress.

I am looking into the problem but it isn’t a simple solution as the query references the explicit users table which isn’t the same under WordPress multi-site.

I thought I had a quick solution but it didn’t work so I will need to sit down for an hour or two and sort this out over the next couple of days.

Google Forms v0.75-beta-1 available

This evening I posted beta-1 of Google Forms v0.75.  This beta release contains a new option to turn off the HTML filter which has been part of Google Forms since the very early iterations of the plugin.  In the early days of the Google Forms plugin, the HTML Google generated was full of unnecessary stuff and as a result, it tended to mess up the rendering of the form within WordPress.  Over the years Google has iterated on forms a number of times and the HTML is much cleaner and includes new attributes for things like accessibility.

Based on a user request to support the accessibility attributes I decided to offer an option to turn off filtering completely.  The disable HTML filtering option is located on the Advanced Tab of the plugin settings.
