WordPress 3.4 dubbed "Green" ( in honor of guitarist Grant Green ) had been released today and is powering our site already. The upgrade went without a glitch as we tested all plugins and themes beforehand.

Themes and FPW Category Thumbnails

Featured Image

What should I do if my theme does not support post thumbnails? Can your plugin still be used? Can FPW Category Thumbnails plugin display thumbnails?

I've been asked these question so often that I felt it deserves some action. There are numerous good free themes not providing post thumbnails support at all. Should we stop using them? Not at all. There are solutions to this problem, unfortunately all of them require modifications of the theme files. Then there is FPW Post Thumbnails plugin. It is the cleanest and the least obtrusive standalone help. Its functionality will be included in the next version of FPW Category Thumbnails as well. You can find it in WordPress repository.

FPW Category Thumbnails 1.4.9

The public method fpwCategoryThumbnails::addThumbnailToPost is now exposed in both back and front end. More in Public method fpwCategoryThumbnails::addThumbnailToPost topic of Documentation.

FPW Honey Pot Links plugin

Featured Image

This plugin is not available anymore!

This plugin is for administrators who joined Project Honey Pot to fight comment spammers and e-mail harvesters by installing honey pots (traps). Adding a honey pot to posts / pages requires a special invisible link being inserted into post's / page's content. This can be done manually by pasting the code of this link into posts / pages. It is not a big deal with new posts but on existing installations with thousands of posts and pages it is a nightmare. The plugin automates the process providing bulk addition of honey pots to existing posts / pages ( bulk removal is provided also ). It inserts the link's code ( if the code does not exist already ) to the content when you publish or update a post as well. Click on a link above this post to see the plugin in WordPress repository.
