Yes, GigPress is 3.0-compatible

Posted by Derek on Wednesday, June 9th, 2010 | 8

It’s been a quiet six months on the GigPress front.  Since 2.1, I’ve basically been squashing bugs and adding small tweaks, almost exclusively based on feedback and support requests (I listen, I do!). But client work and life in general has precluded much serious development time, and will likely continue to do so into the summer as well.

The next planned update is version 2.2, which I hope will include some sort of “I’m Attending” feature, a “pending” show status, and perhaps an overhaul of permissions in GigPress (basically mimicking WP’s roles and permissions). But time will tell!

I just committed version 2.1.9, which as usual fixes some bugs and tweaks a few things. I’m also happy to say that based on testing with the WordPress 3.0 Release Candidate, GigPress is good-to-go for 3.0.

Thanks as always for the support and kind words about GigPress. Stay classy.

    I installed the plugin on wordpress 2.9.2 and activated it. When I click on settings the entire plugin area is blank. Is this is common issue? Can you assist?

    Haven’t seen this yet Lisa, and can’t reproduce. Are the other GigPress screens loading OK?

    First thing first: I absolutely love this plug in! Now to the business. When i upgraded and in my rss feed when a show is part of a tour the title doesn’t show up. The only thing that shows up is the date.

    This doesn’t seem to be a problem with shows not part of a tour. I’ve done alot of code searching and can’t seem to find the problem. I would love some input. Or maybe i just messed something up.

    Looks like you’ve customized the feed template, am I right? I see this same issue with your feed in NetNewswire … can you try replacing output/feed.php with a clean copy from the 2.1.9 download?

    One more thing I forgot to mention, this seems to only be an issue in firefox.

    Cool That seemed to do it. I think i was trying to get certain feeds to say “at (the venue)” instead of “in (the city)” and just messed something up along the way. Guess i won’t mess with it anymore. Thanks for the help and again for the awesome plugin.

    Currently GigPress can create a related post in a certain category. What would it take to create a post with a certain custom post type instead (in WP 3.0)? If it means ‘gently’ modifying the plugin, I don’t mind.

    Sure thing Daniel – check out admin/handlers.php, starting at line 103. You should able to add a single line there.
