Continual Revision

Thursday, August 11th, 2005 at 1613

As minor typos, small bugs and other annoyances are posted in regarding the AMM, I’m fixing them and quietly updating the downloadable files.

Can I just say to people please if you run into a problem, download and install the zipfile from the Sozu website in the software section before panicking :)

The filename won’t have changed, the website won’t have changed but the contents of the zipfile ARE being updated.

Why not go for version numbers you might ask ? I’m not keen on letting bugs build up until we’ve got enough to warrant a “new version”, I’d much rather find it and fix it as soon as it’s reported.

    Ok .. I can understand version numbers.
    But a “Last Updated at hh:mm dd/MMM/yyyy” might be useful.

    Otherwise I might download it .. come back to the site 2 days later and not know if there is anything new there ??

    Unless of course (what with me not even using it .. and not actually having a REALLY good look at the files) .. you are in fact doing that already???

    Good one MK.. Of course we’re already doing it… errr… yeah… ‘course we are… :)

    Man, you weren’t kidding. This is a major upgrade from the last version. Beautimus. :)

    Only issue I have is that I can’t change the image size. (I saw the post on this at WP, but specifying the size isn’t doing the trick for me.) Actually, calling the media with the debug ‘template’ still returns all four “sizes” with the same URL – the small pic. Here’s my sidebar template code:

    — Code removed – Broken formatting —

    Also, (for us non-PHP gurus) templating is a lesson in frustration, but an excellent educational experience. :) If no one minds answering an ignorant question: How does one write an “if this isn’t there, don’t display it” statement in PHP? (i.e. If there is nothing in the Author field, don’t display that line.)

    I’ve emailled you regarding the autoImage issue, I think you just need the latest code.

    Ok, to do an “if not there don’t show” function, you can either use the AutoAuthor and AutoAuthorLabel functions (Test them, they might be what you want) or you can do the following:

    if ($amm->author != '') {
    //Do what you want in here

    If you still can’t get it going, please mail me and I’ll see what I can do.

    Thank you so much for your hardwork on this plug-in. It’s most excellent!
    I am still new with PHP, could you tell me exactly how to use the fancyratings. I can’t figure it out. I spent hours trying. If you could write something for “Dummies”, I would appreciate it.

    I’ve been trying to write a “Dummies” guide and a “How To” for common questions, but I’m far too busy with paying work at the moment.

    Of course if a rich WP users wants to donate several hundred quid to pay my rent in the mean-time, I’m all ears! :)
