WP-Blog v1.1 is here

It is finally time for a new version of WP-Blog that not only focuses on bugfixes. This time I have added a few interresting features too.

I also got a bunch of good feedback from my beta testers so this version contains a bunch of vital bugfixes too so even if you are not interrested in the new features you should grab this update.

Note: Don’t forget to read the full changelog.

WordPress widgets
The biggest new feature is support for WordPress sidebar widgets. This has been the most prominent request, one that I have been partly reluctant to add since I was planning on doing it in another way. Note: Be careful when you use it because you will most likely need to tweak your RapidWeaver theme to take full advantage of this.

Post authors
It is now possible to have the post author shown in the blog posts. You can configure if it should be shown after the post date or after the categories. This is a small but highly requested feature.

Nested/threaded comments
In WordPress v2.7 they added support for nested/threaded comments. Since this requires support from the WordPress theme, aka. WP-Blog, this is now supported. By default only a minimal CSS styling is applied to the comments. If you want to customize the appearance more you can check the WP-Blog manual to see what CSS selectors that are available.

MAMP support
You should now be able to have a WordPress blog installed in MAMP on your Mac and connect to that blog for previewing inside RapidWeaver. This requires that you
have installed MAMP in the recommended location (/Applications/MAMP/).
Note: You need to enable this in the advanced WordPress path setup.

The requirements have increased for WordPress in v1.1 compared to v1.0.x. You now need to have at least v2.8, and due to some security fixes in WordPress you really want to use at least v2.8.4.

RapidWeaver >= v3.6.7
WordPress >= v2.8
OSX >= v10.4

To see what is new in v1.1 check out the changelog.

This is a free update and requires RapidWeaver >= 3.6.7 and OS X >= 10.4 (Works with RapidWeaver 4).
