WP-Blog v1.1.3

It’s time to update to WP-Blog v1.1.3. This version contains one bugfix that fixes an exception so far only seen on Snow Leopard.

I have also loosened the demo restrictions in this version. Starting with v1.1.3 WP-Blog will allow you to save and restore your customized settings in demo mode. The WordPress path will still be reset when you open a project in demo mode and publishing will be disabled after 5 minutes.

To see what is new in v1.1.3 check out the changelog.

This is a free update and requires RapidWeaver >= 3.6 and OS X >= 10.4 (Works with RapidWeaver 4).

Changes to WordPress installation location

Sometime during the development of WordPress v2.8.x they started to be more strict about where WordPress has to be installed if you want the blog front-end (WP-Blog) in another directory.

Before this change it was possible to have WordPress installed completely separate to where you would like to have your WP-Blog page. But with v2.8.x WordPress has to be installed either in the same directory as WP-Blog or WordPress must be in a subfolder of your WP-Blog page. All other configurations seems to be unsupported from now on. I have listed the supported configurations here and I will put this in the documentation shortly.

Install WordPress & WP-Blog in the same folder:
/blog/                <= WordPress & WP-Blog

Install WordPress in a subdirectory of your WP-Blog page (recommended):
/blog/                <= WP-Blog /blog/wordpress/      <= WordPress

If you use the first configuration then you will need to re-publish your WP-Blog page everytime you upgrade your WordPress installation, if the filename is “index.php”. Therefor I recommend that you use the second configuration because that is simpler to maintain. And it is also the default configuration in WP-Blog when you add a new page.

So if you are experiencing strange behaviour with your blog check how your site is setup. And if it doesn’t obey to any of these two configurations then you need to change your setup.

Small status update for WP-Blog

It’s still summer but i’m back from my vacation now and i’m currently preparing the next release of WP-Blog. This will be a major update featurewise that will satisfy many of the requests I have received since the first release. Until then i’m going to share with you a couple of known issues with the current version v1.0.2 that I hope to be able to adress in v1.1.

Known issues:

  • The URL in the ”base href” tag is incorrect for users with RapidWeaver >= v4.2 due to an API change. This causes some RapidWeaver generated links to become incorrect.
  • The sidebar feed links all points to the main feed for some users, i.e. the comments feed points to the rss feed.
  • WP-Touch cannot switch to ”normal” mode anymore. It still works fine in ”mobile” mode, as you can see on this blog.
  • The automatic calculation of the relative path to WordPress from the WP-Blog page can sometimes generate an incorrect relative path.

The issues are listed in order of severity. Some may disagree on that but my main focus is to fix the ”core” functionality.

WP-Blog v1.0.2

It’s time for WP-Blog v1.0.2 to hit the street. It should have been out a couple of days ago but the server where my site is hosted has been a bit down lately.

This release is mainly a bugfix release but there is one new feature added that some of you have been asking for.

WP-Blog v1.0.1

A small bug was introduced in the registered version of WP-Blog. Some of the settings were not saved properly. I have fixed this in v1.0.1 but it requires that you perform a ”Restore settings” in your WP-Blog page and apply your customizations again to fix the problem.

But that is not all that was adressed in this version…

WP-Blog v1.0 – The countdown is over

Say hello to WP-Blog v1.0!

WP-Blog will make it easy to add a WordPress blog in your RapidWeaver designed site. Just add a WP-Blog page, configure the WordPress location in the page, configure WordPress for split blog/WordPress URL, publish and you are done. There is no need to make any adjustments or tweaks to the theme, as long as you are using a RapidWeaver theme that has been designed for v3.6 or newer. When you are done no one will notice that the blog on your site is not the built-in blog in RapidWeaver.

WP-Blog v1.0RC13

The previous version was accidentally built as ”release” version with the demo limitations enabled. I’m sorry about that and I only discovered it after I had gone on our Christmas holiday otherwise I would have fixed it immediately.
