My WordPress plugin, Gravatar Signup Encouragement, got an update. This version adds to new things under the hood and in some situations it may cause some issues, so here is what’s changed.
Previously, plugin depended on
allow_url_fopen to be enabled so that it can check if gravatar exists. Thanks to report by wp.org user jlencion, plugin will now check if
allow_url_fopen is enabled and if not, it’ll fall back to WordPress HTTP API.
After another report on wp.org forum by user Parakoos, plugin now checks for existence of gravatar of the same rating as chosen in site’s settings.
Please report if there are any issues with this new changes.
It marks a beginning of something I delayed for so long: releasing of WordPress plugin I created for clients or own needs that never saw a public light of the day.
This version improves existing and adds new features. You can check full changelog here but below I’ll highlight most important ones.
Now you can show message to registered user in admin bar so it will follow them through whole site.
If you use new bbPress plugin, you can show message in a reply form.
One issue that was preventing inserting correct e-mail address in field on Gravatar’s signup page was fixed too.
Other issues are under the hood. Everything now has documentation for developers, functions are reordered in a more logical way, plugin uses less resources since settings are moved to a separate file.
Finally, I prepared a video tutorial that shows plugin in use. Don’t forget to turn on captions (subtitles) since this is where you’ll get text.
If you like this plugin, promote it through tools below or donate.
