UTW in Themes + Wordpress 2.3 A Go-Go.

Exciting news, boys and girls. The paint, she is drying on my latest Thing.

UTW Theme Compatibility Thing is now available for the ol’ download. If you have a wordpress theme which has UTW_ShowSomething function calls in it, this is a great plugin for you.

If you’re showing icons anywhere, there’s a little extra step you’ll need to do so that the icon URLs go to the right place; but otherwise, just disable UTW, import your tags into wordpress (if you haven’t already), then enable the compatibility plugin.

Oh, and if you miss the admin functions of UTW, I have a fabulous plugin, Tag Managing Thing which does much of the same.

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.]

Behold, the long awaiting next version of Ultimate Tag Warrior. There are three new and important things to ogle at:

Mark wrote a thing which caches tags, so a whole-bunch less database queries will take place. Thanks Mark! (:
– There’s a shiny new option (on the options page) which will automatically include the appropriate tags in a meta keyword field, in the page header.
– I think I’ve fixed the thing with tag suggestions that was causing javascript errors for people. (Also, you can push both buttons and both sets of tag suggestions will display)

– There’s also a new predefined format that will create a tag cloud in the form ordered list of coloured/sized tags. It’s called tagcloudlist. It’s not as important as the other three, but someone wanted one, so there you go.

Ultimate Tag Warrior 3

Woo!

Apparently, I haven’t done a release of my plugin for a while. I just had a look at a diff between the new version, and the old version, and it’s terrifying trying to figure out what has changed (:

At the moment, I’ve only made a WordPress 2 version. If you need a WordPress 1.5 version, let me know and I’ll make the little changes that it needs.

Moh! The first bug has been found! If you’re installing for the first time, in ultimate-tag-warrior-core.php, find PRIMARY KEY (ID)and replace it with PRIMARY KEY (tag_ID)

– You can specify the text to display when there are no tags through the Options > Tags page
– The plugin isn’t requesting option values anywhere near as often (although this is less problematic in WordPress 2.0.1 than it was in WordPress 2.0)
– The plugin does a bunch o’ internal caching which has knocked the number of database queries way down
– I’ve made a couple of changes to streamline new installs (People hosted by Yahoo! had a database permission issue which prevented the automagic updating taking place; along with a couple of other stray issues that people used to ask about (: )
– There’s a lot more type checking/character stripping of user data (side effect of this, is that you can’t have apostrophes or quotes in your tags any more)
– I’ve included some examples for theme-type stuff you might want to do – adding the tags to the title in the header, creating a tag cloud page, a tag archive page (the one that lists the posts for a tag), and an interactive search page (it requires UTW 3. If you don’t have wordpress installed in the root folder, you’ll need to adjust the path to the ajax receiving page.. it’s near the top. You’ll see it)
– You can have embedded tags – if you are using Flock, Ecto, or any other not-wordpress way of adding posts, you can use [tags]comma, list of, tags[/tags] syntax to add tags to a post. [tag]single tag[/tag] can be used within your posts, and will magically turn into tag links when the post is displayed. (You can do this using the wordpress post adding screen too (: ) You do need to enable this on the Options > Tags page.
– There are all sorts of little stray bug fixes here, there and everywhere – Tidy tags works again; ampersands are no longer a problem in feeds; the tag box doesn’t have extra close div tags; and this plugin should no longer conflict with the Static Front Page plugin.
