WordPress plugin updates

I’ve added handling for unpublished posts to Post to Post Links II – see the new “Handling Unpublished Posts” section of the documentation page.

I’ve updated Extensible HTML Editor Buttons with a couple bug fixes, and I’ve removed its dependency on my Toppa Plugin Libraries for WordPress plugin. I will be removing this dependency for all my plugins. Having a plugin for re-usable code seemed like a good idea, but supporting it has proven difficult. I’ve learned the hard way that managing dependencies between plugins is a fragile process in WordPress, and has caused frustration for users. So going forward my plugins will be self-contained.

Next up is a Shashin update. PrettyPhoto is a fantastic photo viewer, and now that it’s GPL compliant, I’m integrating it with Shashin.

To reiterate what I’ve said before, I’m using the wordpress.org support forums now to provide support. Please post any questions there:

  • Hi Mike,

    I am using your Shashin plugin for my wordpress to display my picasa albums. Shashin is an amazing plugin and may be the best one that i used to show picasaweb.

    But I happened a small problem also: my ablums are too many, I want to put as much albums as in one page, so I set the album thumbneil size to 144 and columns to 5 [shashin type="album" columns="5" size="144" crop="y"], my theme entry width is 900px which is should be enough for 5 columns (144*5<900), but the space between each album thumbneil is quite large so that my 5th album thumbneil is cut by the entry edge which means it's only displayed partly.

    I tried to modify the Shashin.css to narrow the album thumbneil space, but unfortunately I didn't make it. Would you please kindly help to advice how to do it? Great Thanks!

    Regards,
    Abdallah

    • Hi Abdallah – please give me a link to your site so I can take a look. It’s likely your theme’s styles are having an effect also.

      • I got your email with the link. Your theme sets padding on all tables, which is what’s making so much space between the thumbnails. If you add this to shashin.css, it should fix it:

        .shashinThumbnailsTable td {
        padding: 6px 0;
        }

        If that doesn’t work, it means the style from the theme stylesheet is still overriding the shashin style. Then you can do this to force it:

        .shashinThumbnailsTable td {
        padding: 6px 0 !important;
        }

  • Hi Mike, i tried to reply ur msg but failed too many times…. maybe it’s blocked by anti spam system, anyway, here’s my url abdallahwang.byethost11.com/picasa/ appreciate u could help…

    • I just noticed this in my spam. But it was prior to your other message, so I think you’re all set, but if you still need anything, let me know.
