The 2nd beta release of Email-Users v4.5.0 is now available. This version fixes one issue with the integration of User Access Manager and the “Send to Group” function.Email Users Beta (1272 downloads)
Yesterday WordPress 3.6 was released. The bundled version of jQuery was updated to 1.10 which broke the jQuery Columnizer plugin I use to split a form into columns. The result was jQuery would go into an infinite loop and eventually you would have to kill the page.
Fortunately someone had already encountered this problem and provided a patch to the jQuery plugin. I have incorporated the patch and released v0.55. If you’re running WordPress 3.6, this is a critical release. Older versions should continue to run correctly.
You can find v0.55 on your WordPress Dashboard or in the plugin repository.
I’ve been working on Email-Users this week and have added quite a bit of functionality. Before I release it I’d like to get a few people put an early version through its paces so if you have a chance to test it out, please do so.
This new version has a number of new features:
- All postboxes on the admin screens now have their own CSS ID and Class so they can be styled or easily hidden.
- Email-Users now support integration with two User “Group” plugins: User Groups and User Access Manager. When you set up groups in either of these plugins you will be able to select them as recipients from the Group Email and Post/Page Notification pages.
- Selection of Custom Filters as Group Recipients is no longer a separate action – it, along wit the Group support noted above, are all presented in the same target recipient selection list. This allows the Custom Filters to work on Post/Page Notifications as well.
- A new action has been introduced: mailusers_update_custom_meta_filters This action will allow for updating meta filters dynamically just prior to their use. This is the best way to create complex meta filters or integrate other plugins. There is a good example in the plugin README file.
- Chinese language support has been contributed.
- Integration panel added to the Plugin Settings Page.
- Updated language support files which incorporate 20+ new strings.
A few other things were cleaned up while I was tinkering with the code as well.Email Users Beta (1272 downloads)
I have also updated the sample plugin file I use to test Custom Meta Filters. It has the full example of the “Public Works” example.Email Users Custom List (2078 downloads)
This morning I released v0.54 of WordPress Google Form. It has been a while since I’ve had any bug reports for the current version or the beta version. Things appear pretty stable.
- Added internationalization support for jQuery Validation messages.
- New language support files.
- New jQuery Validation based custom validation option.
- Fixed problem with escaped characters ending up in Google spreadsheet.
- Moved transport control out of debug module and into core code so it can be a permanent setting for some server environments.
- Fixed PHP warning messages which happen with Logging Enabled when some of the server variables don’t exist.
- Fixed bug with Form Submission Log setting stickiness.
- Added an optional CAPTCHA message which will appear below the CAPTCHA input when set.
I have just posted what I hope is the final beta release of WordPress Google Form v0.54. This latest beta release fixes a couple of minor issues, notably the lack of stickiness on the Form Submission Log setting and adds one new feature. You can now define a CAPTCHA message to appear below the CAPTCHA input box. These two screen shots show the information on the Plugin Settings page and the result when the form is rendered. The message is placed in a DIV which has the class “wpgform-captcha-description” so it can be styled as needed.Google Forms Beta (1725 downloads)
I have a posted a new beta version of WordPress Google Form. This version (v.054-beta-6) fixes a problem reported today which happens when Logging is enabled on certain servers. This update will now test for the variables it wants to track before trying to use them.
This update also includes an enhancement with respect to HTTP API Transports. Previously the plugin allowed control of the various transport options in debug mode. Recently I found a case where it made sense to disable one of the transports on a permanent basis so I have pulled that functionality out of the debug module and moved it into the plugin core.Google Forms Beta (1725 downloads)
I have uploaded a preliminary build of wp-SwimTeam v1.40-beta-1. This build introduces new functionality to support mixed gender and combined age groups. It also fixes a number of small bugs I encountered along the way.
I have not done thorough testing on it as I don’t have access to MM and TM right now to validate the changes. However, I am reasonably confident that the changes I’ve made will have little to no impact on Hy-tek compatibility.
If you run into any issues, let me know and I’ll get them fixed as quickly as I can.wp-SwimTeam Beta (927 downloads)
The first beta release of WordPress Google Form v0.54 is now available for download. This beta release introduces a pretty significant enhancement – Advanced Validation for any field on a Google Form. This is an “advanced” feature as it requires the user to dig into the form in order to gather the necessary information for the validation to work correctly.
There are a few things which I know aren’t working (e.g. Range Checks) which I will look into. I would really appreciate some feedback on this new functionality.Google Forms Beta (1725 downloads)
WordPress v0.50 is now available. This update fixes a jQuery syntax error which occurred when validation was but user email and CAPTCHA were off. Along with the bug fix I also added CSS to hide the “Never submit passwords through Google Forms.” message that Google has added to forms.
You can find the update on your WordPress Dashboard or in the WordPress plugin repository.
A pretty serious issue was reported in the Support Forum this afternoon. I have found and fixed the bug and pushed out an update. While I was at it, I also adjusted the default CSS so the Help Text for form fields is visible. I had inadvertently hidden it with CSS in the v0.46 release.
The update will appear on your WordPress Dashboard or you can find it in the WordPress plugin repository.
