WordPress 2.1 released ! Time to update the plugins…

So it’s out now, WordPress 2.1

I installed already some time ago a test version and didn’t encounter big problems with my plugins. So I hope also my plugins will work in the “live” operation of your blogs. I will update my blog very soon to v2.1, I need first to wait for the update of myGallery (or I need to do it my own way) , then remaining problem for the plugins is the TinyMCE button issue, which is detailed explained here.

A sample script for a button integration in TinyMCE you can download by An-Archos. Thanks to his work and Viper007Bond , that they already sorted out the problem. So it’s time now for the plugin authors to say “Designed for WordPress 2.1 or not ?”


Wordpress 2.1

    Hi Alex, did you hear anything yet on the update for mygallery? I am like you and eagerly awaiting the update! I have a couple of sites where I want to use your myflash plugin, but I can’t yet as it relies on mygallery 🙂 I guess we just wait patiently!

    Hi Mark,

    yes you are right. The story behind myGallery is that Thomas stopped the work (nearly) , caused by some politic discussion (as result he stopped the support in the german wordpress forum) , some clients didn’t pay for the work which was agreed and the never ending support for myGallery (for nothing)…

    I can tell you at the moment, how long he maintain myGallery. I had already some ideas to take over the support for myGallery, cause I study this plugin very well…

    If you need a fix for the button, I can send it to you, cause I done it already. A bigger problem seems to be that a fresh WP2.1 didn’t create the databases, this I haven’t figured out yet.

    What’s the solution for the missing button?

    A update in the php script, I done that for my own purpose in myGallery

    Hehe, I meant could you send the changes needed to be able to add the button? Thank you in advance.
