UTW + WordPress 2.3 + Yay for people on the Interwubs

Apparently there exists a WP 2.3 compatible version of UTW.

Excitings.

Ultimate Tag Warrior: Please Read!

Ultimate Tag Warrior is unsupported with WordPress 2.3. WordPress 2.3 does, however, have a thingy for importing UTW tags into WordPress.

You should do that (:

Then, you should have a look at WordPress Things. Some of them cover UTW functionality. There will be a plugin for the UTW template tags.. soon.. which should allow theme stuff to keep on working; but alas, there are still many kinks to iron out. Check back in a week for that one (:

Ultimate Tag Warrior Bugfix Release

Item the first: If you’re getting 404 errors on your tag pages, try going to the Options > Permalinks page in wp-admin, and click the Update Permalinks button.

Item the second: There’s a bugfix release of UTW. Download Here! It should deal with the problem that contact form plugin thingy people were having – go to the Options > Tags page, and resave your options; then all should be good in the world.

Item the third: I’m looking for beta testers for taggish plugins I’m putting together for WordPress 2.3. If you’d like to beta test, and are using WordPress 2.3, send an email to beta [at] neato [dot] co [dot] nz.

Fabulous.

A Call To Plugin Authors

I’m going to restructure Ultimate Tag Warrior a bit. I’m not sure about the finer details of it yet.

However. If you’ve written a plugin or other such thing which interacts with or depends on Ultimate Tag Warrior; you should let me know how you use it, so that I don’t break your plugins (:

If you use the template tags (UTW_Show…), I’ll make sure that is going to keep working in much the same way (so if you have a UTW theme, it will probably be A-OK); but if you use functions in the Ultimate Tag Warrior classes, it’s much more important that you tell me what you’re using.

Awesome.

UTW: Maybe it’s time for a revolutionary change

I’ve been thinking about changing UTW to have a bare-bones tagging implementation; with additional plugins to perform various bits of extra functionality.

Would having to enable a handful of plugins be completely irritating? Would it be confusing?

(So you’d have the core-UTW plugin with, say, a simple formatting plugin and the geegaw tag-interface; or perhaps core-UTW with fine grained formatting and a textbox tag-interface (ooh! or one suited to Asian language); or maybe you’d enable some kind of import/export plugin to do that task as you need it, then disable it once complete; or all sorts of things)

So, uh, feedback would be nice (:

Ultimate Tag Warrior 3.14159265

Hokay. More bugfixes!

  • The thing with tags being eaten by the wordpress 2.1 beta by comment-actions ought to be fixed.
  • The thing where atom feeds were coming back invalid because of a mix of dc:subject and category tags.
  • The thing where bbPress and UTW wouldn’t play nice because UTW had a is_tag function, and bbPress had one too. [If UTW sees that the is_tag function already exists, it isn’t declared; and there’s a is_utwtag function that bbPress users can use instead. Yeah.]

Ultimate Tag Warrior 3.1415926

This is a release with mainly little bug fixes and tweaks. Oh! And if you do a search, posts with tags that are like your search term will be included. This is probably the neatest addition (:

  • The bug in wordpress 2.1 which caused tags to vanish when a comment was made has been fixed Turns out that if you add a comment, it’s fine; but if you approve one, the tags will still vanish. Hrmpf.
  • I’m pretty sure you won’t end up with double-tags in feeds, any more
  • I’ve rejigged the way tags are added to feeds
  • Tag intersections should be working properly again
  • Tags can be added to pages (and will be included in tag cloud counts… displaying on tag pages, though…)
  • No more XSS vulnerability with the ajax URL parameter
  • There’s an invisible technorati tags format, now! (Handy for using with the automagically include tags on the Options > Tags page)
  • Search includes tags [I worry about this bit! let me know if you see anything weird]

I’ve tried it using wordpress versions 2.0.4, 2.0.7 and a 2.1 beta; and it seems to work in all three (:

Attention WordPress 2.1 beta users!

Here’s a temporary patch for resetting tags.
Modify ‘ultimate_save_tags()’ function on ‘ultimate-tag-warrior-actions.php’ about line 502:
if (isset($_POST['comment_post_ID'])) return $postID;
if (isset($_POST['not_spam'])) return $postID; // akismet fix
if (isset($_POST["comment"])) return $postID; // moderation.php fix

This seems to work.
