WordPress Plugin Updates

I’ve committed updates to the following WordPress plugins:

  • Shashin 3 (dev): added support for image viewers other than Highslide. See the Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "shashin-3-development-progress" for more details. Currently available at GitHub (I’m not going to replace Shashin 2 at the wordpress.org plugin repository until Shashin 3 is done).
  • Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "deko-boko-wordpress-plugin": fixed the language translation configuration and updated the .pot file
  • Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "toppa-plugin-libraries-for-wordpress": added language translation support, improved the form building widgets (especially for checkboxes), and added a bunch of functions to the WordPress facade (see the readme file).
  • Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "simpletest-for-wordpress": also added language translation support.
  • All of the above: handling of any plugin activation errors is now much more user friendly.
    • My other two plugins – Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "post-to-post-links-wordpress-plugin" and Post to Post Links II error: No post found with slug "koumpounophobia-wordpress-plugin" – are on the back-burner for now. For now I’m focused on getting Shashin 3 done. I have plans for these 2 plugins as well. It’s all just a matter of finding enough time…

    Hi Mike,
    I am running Shashin on my site, and we are suddenly having a problem. When we click on the picasa logo the page opens and it says “loading images” but never does. This has been happening for a week now i think. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Kristoher – I haven’t had a report of a problem with this before. First, could you let me which browser you are using, and then try it in a different browser? That will help me figure out if it’s a problem with just a particular browser.

    After that, please give Firebug a try. It’s an extension for Firefox. I’ll need to ask you to install it if you don’t have it already, in order to debug the problem (it’s at http://getfirebug.com/ ). After installing it, open Firebug before clicking the Picasa logo (the F12 key will open it). Click the “console” tab in Firebug, then click the Picasa logo. You should then see a line in the console that starts with “POST” with a plus sign next to it. Click the plus sign, and then copy-and-paste for me what’s under the “post” and “response” tabs.

    Hi Mike,

    I’m testing WordPress in general for a bigger project. I have one album that when I sync the album, I get this error:

    ShashinAlbum::setAlbumPhotos – Failed to insert record for photo ID 2147483647. SQL Error:

    I’ve tried to trace the actual SQL statement in MySQL but haven’t been able to nail it down. This error is also preventing other albums from loading. Any ideas for what I can look at? I can write PHP and MySQL.

      Hi Mike – this has been happening to others as well (not everyone, but some users) since Picasa switched to https. I am almost done with Shashin 3 which takes care of this. Details here: http://www.toppa.com/shashin-3-development-progress/

        Awesome. Thanks for the response. I was actually able to get around the problem by systematically removing pictures from the library. There was one picture, that I had used Picknik to resize, that the script seemed to not want to process. I will install the alpha of version 3 and see how it works. I also wanted to let you know that I had a lot of issues with the version of Highslide that is included with the plugin. I am using Chrome 14 and it just never seemed to work. I went to their website and downloaded their latest version, replaced your highslide.js with the new one and it works perfectly now.

          Thanks for letting me know. Could you give me the Picasa url for your album that was triggering the error? I’d like to test it with the new version of Shashin (you can submit it through my contact form if you don’t want to post it here). The new version of Shashin comes with the new version of Highslide.
