2007.07.15 Changes
I made changes to the single.php file. I modified the post meta data again. Now it’s simpler and much smarter. I also changed the CONFIG-FILE.php file, but I just changed the file’s build number. Affects: First 3309 downloads. Recommendation: If you got downloads 3303 and 3309, or if you modified your files as per the 2007.07.14 recommendation (below), change out the single.php.
2007.07.14 Changes
I made changes to the following files: single.php, page.php, header.php, style.css, and the print.css file. I added the ability to add pullquotes to Pages. I modified the comment rules, added author’s comment special styling, the post meta data was simplified, and I made a small tweak in the header file. I also changed the CONFIG-FILE.php file, but I just changed the file’s build number. Affects: First 3302 downloads. Recommendation: Change out the files mentioned, but do use care that you don’t overwrite your custom modified files if you have them.
2007.05.15 Changes
I made changes to the following files: archive.php, search.php, and the index.php. In these files I removed a bit of unnecessary scripting and added the continue reading [post title] in the search results page. I also changed the CONFIG-FILE.php file, but I just changed the file’s build number. Affects: First 1885 downloads. Recommendation: Change out the files mentioned, but do use care that you don’t overwrite your custom modified files if you have them.
2007.05.11 Changes
I made changes to the following files: archive.php, search.php, single.php, index.php, header.php, style.css, handheld.css, print.css, sitemap.php, and 404.php. The archive.php, search.php, single.php, and index.php files were modified to deal with a new Custom Pull Quote feature I added. I also made it so the theme’s “Blog Description” is now optional. In other words, if you don’t use the Blog Description as provided by WordPress, it’ll not be incorporated into the theme. It is for this reason I edited the header.php file. It’ll determine this automatically. I also changed the CONFIG-FILE.php file, but I just changed the file’s build number. Affects: First 1812 downloads. Recommendation: Change out the files mentioned, but do use care that you don’t overwrite your custom modified files if you have them.
2007.04.14 Changes
I added the latest contact form version. Swap out the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files in the /wp-content/plugins/wp-gbcf/ directory. See the form’s change log for more info. I made changes to the CONFIG-FILE.php and header.php files. In the header.php file a line to the h1 element was tweaked and the CONFIG-FILE.php file’s build number was changed. Affects: First 1453 downloads. Recommendation: Change out header.php file and the form files mentioned.
2007.04.06 Changes
I added the latest contact form version. Swap out the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files in the /wp-content/plugins/wp-gbcf/ directory. See the form’s change log for more info. I made changes to the archive.php, CONFIG-FILE.php, header.php, index.php, length-limits.txt.php, search.php, sidebar.php, and single.php. First of all I removed three variables in the Configuration and made them automatic. In other words if you activate the three plugins I provide via the WordPress admin Plugins page, they will instantly be properly added and styled without having to add any code or do any configuration. Super-simple. I changed the length-limits.txt.php, header.php, and single.php files to reflect the configuration changes. In the rest of the files I added the htmlentities() to all instances of <?php $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?> for added WordPress security against Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) exploits since I just learned that <?php $_SERVER['PHP_SELF']; ?> can be vulnerable. Affects: First 1346 downloads. Recommendation: Change out all of the files mentioned. If you are upgrading, you will want/need to swap out the CONFIG-FILE.php but remember to first transfer your existing data from your existing CONFIG-FILE.php to the new one.
2007.04.04 Changes
I made changes to the header.php and site-map.php files to better optimize them for search engines and to add custom description and custom keyword modification using WordPress’s “Custom Fields.” Affects: First 1289 downloads. Recommendation: Change out the files mentioned. The CONFIG-FILE was also changed, but that was just to update the build number.
2007.03.31 Changes
First I added the latest contact form version. Swap out the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files in the /wp-content/plugins/wp-gbcf/ directory. See the form’s change log for more info. I also made extensive edits to the 404.php, site-map.php, and sidebar.php files. I tweaked styles in the style.css and print.css files, optimized the title element and H1 heading in the header.php file, made a small tweak in the footer.php and single.php files, added .noprint classes and fixed a recently found validation bug in the comments.php file. I also added a variable to make it easier to customize the headings if it’s a “site” or a “blog” (see the Configuration page for details). Affects: First 1221 downloads. A change was also made to the home file and the length-limits.txt file. Recommendation: Change out all the files mentioned with exception to the style sheets unless you’re using the them “as is” and also use care if you’ve modified the sidebar.php file with added content. You may want to transfer the content first or choose not to upgrade it. If you are upgrading, you will want/need to swap out the CONFIG-FILE.php but remember to first transfer your existing data from your existing CONFIG-FILE.php to the new one. It should be worth your while, especially the header.php file.
2007.03.03 Changes
This update was mostly for plugins. First I added the latest contact form version. Swap out the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files in the /wp-content/plugins/wp-gbcf/ directory. See the form’s change log for more info. I also made an (custom) accessibility enhancement to the Bookmark Me plugin. I added link separators to the links (see a post page with styles off). Swap out the sem-bookmark-me.php file in the /wp-content/plugins/sem-bookmark-me/ directory. This change also requires swapping out the single.php to accommodate the plugin changes. Affects: First 616 downloads. Recommendation: Change out the four files mentioned with exception to the CONFIG-FILE (its only change was the build number).
2007.02.13 Changes
This was a minor upgrade. The files that were edited are header.php, sidebar.php, style.css (for BBv2-only), and print.css (for BBv2-only). Improvements made were for the purpose of improving search engine optimization. The title element was modified as was the h1 heading element. The sidebar.php was only edited for new installs and doesn’t affect existing users. The style.css was modded to add “futura” as the secondary font for Mac users instead of reverting to “Trebuchet MS.” The print style sheet, print.css, was modded to remove comments from printed output. Other changes included adding the latest build of the contact form plugin which was modified a bit. You can read the details of the changes (#6), but what you need to do to upgrade is simply update the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files. One final change, an addition really, was to add a newly modified quicktags.js file as a bonus with the download, and as another bonus, a new wp-admin.css file was added to expand textareas and style the quicktags.js file. These bonus files need to be renamed quicktags.js and wp-admin.css, respectively. Place the quicktags.js file in your /wp-includes/js/ directory and place the wp-admin.css file in your /wp-admin/ directory. Affects: First 389 downloads. Recommendation: Change out all of the updated files with exception to the sidebar.php as it was only modded for new installations. The build number was changed in the CONFIG-FILE but it doesn’t really need to be updated. The wp-admin.css should be replaced if you’re using the added quicktags.js file and want larger textareas.
2007.02.03 Changes
This was a pretty substantial upgrade. Most of the files were edited and unless you’ve done modifications. The files changed most extensively are search.php, sitemap.php, archives.php, 404.php, and header.php. Improvements made were for the purpose of improving user interaction and usability, accessibility, and search engine optimization. Other changes included adding the latest build of the contact form plugin which was extensively modified. You can read the details of the changes (#6), but what you need to do to upgrade is simply update the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files. One final change, an addition really, was to add a quicktags.js file. This needs to be renamed so it is called quicktags.js and placed in your /wp-includes/js/ directory. Affects: First 248 downloads. Recommendation: Change out all of the files with exception to the CONFIG-FILE (its only change was the build number), add the wp-gbcf_form.php and wp-gbcf_help.php files in the /wp-content/plugins/wp-gbcf/ directory, and add the quicktags.js file as noted above.
