Some DW users are (still) using mQtranslate which now gives errors in the DW admin. Also it turns out that also qTranslate-X has been abandoned. Or at least none of the projects are found in the repository anymore.

Therefor I’ve decided to (temporary) suspend support for qTranslate and it’s forks until a solution is in sight.

For the DW users who have an error because of qTranslate, can use a special version of DW I submitted to the repository that has support within DW of qTranslate and it’s forks suspended.

Dynamic Widget 1.5.11 http://www.qurl.nl/2015/08/dynamic-widget-1-5-11/ http://www.qurl.nl/2015/08/dynamic-widget-1-5-11/#comments Fri, 14 Aug 2015 17:47:28 +0000 http://www.qurl.nl/?p=1119 A few days ago Dynamic Widgtes had been taken down from the WordPress Plugin Repository by the WordPress Admins because of a security flaw being found by Mika Epstein (Thanks Mika!). This is now fixed and therefor Dynamic Widget has been made available again.

Next to the fix for the security flaw a new feature has been added: Shortcodes. This feature has become available by the financial contribution of Nathan Wright of NW Consulting. Thank you very much Nathan!

Dynamic Widgets with qTranslate-X http://www.qurl.nl/2015/05/dynamic-widgets-with-qtranslate-x/ http://www.qurl.nl/2015/05/dynamic-widgets-with-qtranslate-x/#comments Wed, 06 May 2015 06:50:57 +0000 http://www.qurl.nl/?p=1108 Dynamic Widgets has had support for the now abandoned plugin qTranslate for a long time. Some time ago, qTranslate has been adapted by a few other folks and renamed to qTranslate-X. Dynamic Widgets has added support for qTranslate-X starting with version 1.5.10.

Unfortunately due to WordPress policies, the authors of qTranslate-X had to change some code. This resulted in a new incompatibility between qTranslate-X and Dynamic Widgets. For compatibility you can switch on a setting in qTranslate-X that makes Dynamic Widgets work again happily with qTranslate-X.

I quote one the authors of qTranslate-X in the WordPress Forum topic:
There is an option in qTranslate-X, “Compatibility Functions”, which enables back a list of functions with qtrans_ prefix: https://qtranslatexteam.wordpress.com/faq/#CompatibilityFunctions

Of course, Dynamic Widgets will be changed so this setting will not be necessary anymore in a new version.

Dynamic Widgets 1.5.10 http://www.qurl.nl/2015/05/dynamic-widgets-1-5-10/ http://www.qurl.nl/2015/05/dynamic-widgets-1-5-10/#comments Tue, 05 May 2015 11:51:24 +0000 http://www.qurl.nl/?p=1102 After a long time I could finally find some time to release a new version of Dynamic Widgets. Just a few things have been added to it. Not much this time. Below the changelog:

  • Added Japanese language file (locale: ja) – Arigato chacomv!
  • Added security preventing calling scripts creatively
  • Added detection of QTranslate-X

Dynamic Widgets 1.5.9 http://www.qurl.nl/2014/07/dynamic-widgets-1-5-9/ http://www.qurl.nl/2014/07/dynamic-widgets-1-5-9/#comments Wed, 16 Jul 2014 13:01:07 +0000 http://www.qurl.nl/?p=1037 Much earlier then anticipated I’ve released version 1.5.9 of Dynamic Widgets. A small but quite annoying bug made me decide to release this version. Also I’ve been able to add a new feature to it which was requested quite a few times. Below the changelog:

  • Added support for IP range
  • Bugfix for URL and Pages module does not show the green checkmark and not showing the settings made
  • Bugfix for Single Post Catregory is saved wrong
  • Bugfix for Strict warning notice in author_module.php at line 42

New feature requests are always taken into consideration. But it happens quite a few times I get requests I’m not certain there would be an audience for it. For that kind of requests I will create a poll and see the response on it. Based on the outcome of the poll I’ll take the request in consideration again. Currently there is poll running about a feature request: Filter based on coming from specific URL.

Poll: Filter based on coming from specific URL http://www.qurl.nl/2014/06/poll-filter-based-on-coming-from-specific-url/ http://www.qurl.nl/2014/06/poll-filter-based-on-coming-from-specific-url/#comments Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:36:48 +0000 http://www.qurl.nl/?p=1014 Today someone asked me at the WordPress Forum if it would be possible to create a module in Dynamic Widgets that adds a filter based on coming from specific URL within the website. I answered that I like the idea, but I’m not so sure it would be used very much. To see how other users think about it, I created a poll.

So, what do you think?

Dynamic Widgets 1.5.8 http://www.qurl.nl/2014/06/dynamic-widgets-1-5-8/ http://www.qurl.nl/2014/06/dynamic-widgets-1-5-8/#comments Mon, 23 Jun 2014 15:21:20 +0000 http://www.qurl.nl/?p=1006 I’ve just released version 1.5.8 of Dynamic Widgets. I know, the time between releases is getting longer and longer. I have actually very good reasons for that, but unfortunately I can’t tell much about that already. I’m working on a very big project which hopefully is going public somewhere this year. It’s specific for the Dutch market, but has capabilities to roll out to other countries also.

Anyway, this is the changelog:

  • Renamed Mobile Device to Device for more expansion.
  • Removed the version number from the HTML comment.
  • Fixed a few strict warnings.
  • Fixed a few vulnerabilities discovered by Leon Juranic.

WARNING: When you upgrade manually, remove the dynamic-widgets directory first!

UPDATE: A small but can be annoying bug has been found. The URL and Pages module does not show your settings. The settings are working until you save new settings without reproducing the settings for URL and Page. A fix has already been released in the development version.

UPDATE 2: Apparently something went wrong with my test routines. Another small bug was found in the Single Post Category. Also this has been fixed in the development version.

Please provide me with details about your problem and the theme you’re using and where I can find it. Please note that I can only look at themes which are free.
