I just committed GigPress 2.1 to the WordPress plugins repository; it should start to show up in your plugin update notifications shortly. Most of what’s new in version 2.1 was covered in my last post, but I wanted to highlight a few changes to prevent headaches:
- GigPress 2.1 requires WordPress 2.8 or newer, and is fully-compatible with WordPress 2.9
- The GigPress widget has been overhauled for the better (multiple instances, and some new options), but this means that existing widgets will need to be reset due to the changes
- Along with the widget changes comes changes to the
gigpress_sidebar()function. If you currently call this function directly (as opposed to using the widget), you’ll need to make a quick update your template. Refer to the updated docs for details.
- There are a couple of variable changes for the
sidebar-list-footertemplate regarding the display of the feed links and the link to the main shows page. If you’re using a customized version of that template, a quick look at the new default
sidebar-list-footer.phpwill show you the way.
Be sure to review the docs for the new monthly/yearly archive menu and implement it on your site if it makes sense. It’s been an oft-requested feature, and I think folks will find it very useful.
