Major update for GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools Pro is here, adding many interesting and useful features, including: bbPress 2.0 forum integration, date based custom post types archives and templates for them, Yourls plugin integration, terms custom field and more.

Date based archives

Custom Post Type editor is expanded with additional tab that is used for custom rewrite rules. New organization is easier to follow, considering that new options are added, and at some point more things will end up there. Rewrite options are expanded with date based archives for custom post type and support for custom templates for them. Now, you can have custom post type archive that has extra date element in the URL for year, month or day. If your post type is called movie, date archive URL’s can look like this:

[php]http://www.example.com/movie/2010/
http://www.example.com/movie/2011/06/
http://www.example.com/movie/2011/03/12/[/php]

Templates names reflect that also, and you can check a tutorial with full list of custom templates (link at the bottom of this post).

Yourls Integration

Yourls plugin integration

Yourls WordPress to Twitter is great plugin that connects Yourls URL Shortener with WordPress and Twitter. This new integration allows you to easily enable and control this for each custom post type, including customizing tweet format plugin will send to Twitter.

bbPress 2.0 plugin integration

New plugin version uses custom meta boxes to expand them and use in the topic and reply forms in bbPress 2.0 implemented forums. With this, you can add extra fields to the bbPress forms so that your users can submit extra info for the topic or reply.

This will be in use on Dev4Press support forum soon to improve the topic processing and help to improve use of the forums. Plugin allow setting different custom meta boxes to be used in different forums and other integration options.

Some of the custom fields will not behave as expected in bbPress form. Rich editor will be available only with WordPress 3.3. Color picker and image custom fields can’t be used in these forms. Picker is planned to be added, but image field will not be added.

And more…

Several bugs are fixed from previous version, some of the plugin panels are improved and export procedure is also changed a bit. Custom meta boxes can use additional field for selecting taxonomy terms. Several new tutorials will be published this week to help you with using new features.

      Are you sure that plugin is updated correctly? This error can’t happen under normal circumstances. What PHP version are you using?

            Thanks for your quick response. But now I get a different error (clean install):

            Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

            Fatal error: Call to a member function get() on a non-object in
            …/wp-content/plugins/gd-taxonomies-tools/code/public/general.php on line 13

            This is basically same error, I moved the function to change loading order. I can’t reproduce this problem (before or with this update). Can you try to do this: Open ‘gd-taxonomies-tools.php’ file, and find line 55 (starting with $gdtt…). Add new line before that line with this:

            global $gdtt;

      Great! This is PHP related issue, and it happens (as I can gather from PHP website) since PHP 5.3.6. I will include it in yet next minor revision in the morning.

      And, image is updated, just clear the cache in the browser.
