Contribution to Google News Widget (& Shortcode) Plugin for WordPress

I’d been looking for a good plugin to feed local news to my condo’s website and wasn’t really finding any that seemed to be doing the trick for me, but then I stumbled on Stefania Marchisio’s Google News Widget (& Shortcode) Plugin for WordPress. It looked pretty good, but unfortunately the built in options, while …

WP-Slimbox2 v1.0.3.2 (and v1.0.3.1) Released

So I had to release extremely two minor bug fixes (seems like that’s what usually happens). Apparently I’d never committed the changes I’d made to handle the updated RTL localization support in the index.php file, so release v1.0.3.1 remedied that. Then, after I had reports from two people who apparently had some minor issues with …

WP-Slimbox2 v1.0.3 Released!

I’ve been sitting on a number of localizations that have been coming in ever since the previous release. I’d been holding off on an update since I’d hoped to get all the current localizations updated, rather than having several minor releases in a short period of time that only updated localizations. Unfortunately, nv1962, who graciously …

Official Logo, Site Redesign

Transient Monkey Logo

If you’ve been to the site before, you’ve likely noticed we’ve got a new banner, and a new logo! We’d originally intended to have them be one and the same, but the best looking logo turned out a bit more square, which doesn’t really work so well as a banner. Luckily, some of the earlier …

WP-Slimbox2 v1.0.2 Released!

I’m a bit late writing this post, but it seems like every time I make major changes to my plugin, I get hammered with a bunch of little glitches that effect a bunch of people other than me. I suppose that’s the downside of not having a group of people to do beta testing for …

WP-Slimbox2 v1.0.1 Released!

That’s right, another update already! Unfortunately, this one was to fix an issue some users were reporting regarding an error after installing the plugin that sadly made their sites unusable. I hope everyone who was experiencing that issue has since upgraded and can get back to enjoying the benefits of the plugin. Several users reported …

WP-Slimbox2 v1.0 Released!

It’s been practically a year since the last release, but I finally got up the motivation to mess with the code some more and add even more features to the already numerous possibilities within the plugin. Release 1.0 includes several new options such as: The ability to enable the effect on mobile phones (originally there …

WP-Slimbox2 v0.9.7 Released!

The latest version of WP-Slimbox2, v0.9.7, has been released. Major changes on the user side include the addition of the wonderful jQuery Farbtastic colorpicker Javascript, created by Steven Wittens and a new key code detection script (written by me) that allows you to simply type the keys you’d like to use instead of looking up …

Calling Translators/Localizers

For those of you who are unaware, WP-Slimbox2 has had Localization support since v0.9.4, and support for RTL Localization since v0.9.5. Unfortunately, what I do not have are localizations, Spanish/Español aside. So I’m putting out the word, on my mostly unread blog, requesting people to provide translations! It uses the standard POT file method, the …

Gallery Integration and jQuery Slimbox WordPress Plugin

I added two plugins today regarding images galleries. One of them was to more directly integrate the gallery I already use, Gallery2, with WordPress. It’s called WPG2 and supposedly makes it easier to insert images into posts and so forth, though I’m still trying to figure out how it all works. Another nice feature is …
