Core and plugin updates

The network core and plugins will be updated before noon today. Downtime (if any) will be minimal. Status update will be posted here later today.


Maxgalleria update (again)

Maxgalleria is now at v4.06. The devs had to fix a bug, so they rolled out a quick patch.


Plugin update: Flickr Photostream, MaxGalleria, WP Sitemap Page

Flickr Photostream is no more! The plugin has been relaunched as Flickr Justified Gallery (current version 3.3.6). If you’ve been using this plugin, the new version should keep your old settings.

Maxgalleria has been updated from version 3.1.8 to version 4.01. This plugin has been a lot more stable lately than in past years. Hopefully the devs keep this up.

WP Sitemap Page has been updated from v1.5.4 to v1.5.6.

Please contact us with any plugin issues. There shouldn’t be any, but we’d sure like to know if any of these updates affected your plugin functionality.


Plugin update: Akismet v3.1.3

Just updated Akismet to version 3.1.3. Akismet is a plugin that filters and removes spam comments. As of yet, Publish does not have an enterprise license key, but your department can sign up for a non-commercial API key for use on your site (as little as $6 a year for the basic license).

From the v3.1.3 changelog:

  • Notify users when their account status changes after previously being successfully set up. This should help any users who are seeing blank Akismet settings screens.

Note: if you have comments disabled on your site, you won’t have to worry about comment spam and probably wouldn’t be interested in this plugin. Most Publish WordPress sites on our network have page/post comments disabled by default, but some older sites may have them turned on (I saw a site last week that collected over 100,000 spambot comments in less than two years!). For those interested, I’ll post a tutorial here on how to completely disable all comments on your site. Most likely sometime this afternoon.


Page-list v5.1

The Page-list plugin has been updated to version 5.1. It’s a minor update, but please let us know if any problems arise.

Happy Independence Day!


Back online

Our WordPress production server experienced a brief period of downtime this morning. Many thanks to ACCC Web Services for resurrecting the big machine, and thanks to those who notified us of the outage.

On an unrelated note, some of you may have noticed we updated the WordPress core and all plugins last week. The Simple Staff List plugin is misbehaving as a result, so we’re working on a fix now. Also note: all future Wordpress core and plugin updates will be applied to the multisite within two business days of their release.

Some of the plugins on the production server needed updating too, so we took care of those as well.
