This new release is focused on improving the taxonomies widgets. Both widgets are expanded with few more options to hide empty and exclude terms, and list widget now can display terms in the form of the drop down list with regard to the hierarchy.
Number of options for custom post types and taxonomies grew with latest WP 3.0, and the form got very long. So I decided to clean it up and add dropdown checkbox control for some elements. Both lite and pro versions are updated with new, cleaner forms.
Once again, specifications for custom post types and custom taxonomies is changed in WordPress 3.0 This time changes allow for more flexibility, but require many things to be updated in this plugin to take advantage of that. Both Pro and Lite editions are updated.
With the release of WordPress 3.0 Beta 2, I have updated this plugin with latest features added to custom post types. Both lite and pro versions got those core changes. But, as usual, Pro version has another new and interesting feature to offer over lite version.
This was in works for some time, but due to many changes in WordPress meta boxes, I was reluctant to complete it. Now, that things are finally sorted out, Pro version taxonomies/terms manipulation from post editor is much improved. Also, WordPress 2.9 is now minimal requirement.
Both versions of the plugin are updated and few more custom post types related features and functions are added. To Pro edition another new feature is added allowing you to display custom taxonomies as columns on edit grids for all post types similar to categories and tags.
WordPress 3.0 is updated daily, and current development is changing things non stop. Since the previous versions of plugin from last week, things have changed again, and again in WP breaking the plugin. So, here are new versions that work with current WP.
As you see, GD Taxonomies Tools plugin is now renamed to GD Custom Posts And Taxonomies Tools. Since WordPress 3.0 adds support for Custom Post Types, and implementation is close to Custom Taxonomies, I decided to add that to existing plugin.
WordPress 3.0 is almost here, and the latest Beta 1 released last week is a good reference for what to expected. Some things were changed in the past 2 months with taxonomies in WP3, and here are new versions of GD Taxonomies Tools plugin to follow those changes.
Double release today for GD Taxonomies Tools, both Pro and Lite version. Both versions contain several minor fixes, but more importantly they are compatible with latest development build of WordPress 3.0 and changes core developers made to custom taxonomies handling.
Along with the Lite version of GD Taxonomies Tools, Pro version is also released. To avoid confusion with Lite releases, Pro will have different numbering and will start from 1.5.0. This is first official release of Pro version, so here is a short introduction on new features.
GD Taxonomies Tools plugin has reach stable 1.0.0 release. Current plans for Lite editions are pretty much covered by this release. There will be some new functions and widget in new release, but that will be only part of what we will do with Pro edition.
