XenWord 3.0.5.02 is Now Available

XenWord 3.0.5.02 is now available in the download area of the store. This release is the bug fix for the first version to be marked beta. The release is installed on Tux Reports, and this post comments will show off some of the new features. Please test this release on a development environment before using it on a live production website.

XenWord is a simple, incrementally developed bridge between XenForo community forums and WordPress. Development began in the summer of 2013 with the initial release available in January 2014.

This version has a very important bug fix for any site which used versions prior to XenWord 3.0.1. XenForo replies are now written to the WordPress comment system and the native WordPress comment system is being used. This means third-party plugins such as wpDiscuz may be used on a website, allowing live updates for members.

Before replies from XenForo are written, a WordPress comment must be created. This is due to the WordPress hook used in the Displays.php file. If you’d prefer, you may replace line 34 comments_array with the hook the_content.

( 110 ) Beta Release 3.0.5.02 – April 27, 2016


Bug Fix: Comment duplication

What’s next?
Now that the XenWord plugin has entered beta, the focus will shift to fixing bug reported in the bug forum. As bugs are squashed then the plugin will move from beta to release candidate then gold. No new features will be added until this version sequence is complete.

Pre-Sales Questions
Please ask any questions regarding this release in the pre-sales forum.

New Installations

Before installing the XenWord plugin, please make sure you aligned the IDs and user_ids for the administrator, editor, contributor accounts. The www settings for WordPress and XenForo must be the same (including capitalizations). Create WordPress Administrator, WordPress Editor, WordPress Author, and WordPress Contributor user groups in XenForo. After activation, you must set the absolute path to XenForo. Next, turn on advanced user mapping and map the secondary user groups to WordPress roles.

Do NOT use FTP to upload this plugin. Please use the Add New plugin under the WordPress plugins area.

Upgrading
Please do not overwrite older versions of XenWord. Upload the zip file through the plugins –> Add New. Deactivate the older version. Login with your WordPress admin account, activate the new XenWord version. You will be asked to Login with the XenForo admin account. Go through all settings in the XenWord Settings Panel. Save and test.

Support

Please do not open a support ticket or send a private message. If you run into issues then please open a new thread in the support forums. It’s vital that you add as much information as possible to help figure out the issue.

Documentation
New documentation for the first beta version is slowly being uploaded. Video and screenshots may vary based on the release, therefore, feel free to post any suggestions and request clarification in the support forums.

I appreciate all of the feedback so that XenWord is improved.

One thing, is there a thread discussing 4.5? Any issues besides requiring that check box I’ve seen to support it?

Well, it looks like this plugin cannot support signatures? I suppose that should be stripped out or BB code support needs to be added to this comment plugin. Secondly, it doesn’t appear my comments are showing up properly? Click the link below to see what I mean:

Well a few things, if i go with option number 2, would i then have to edit the plugin to what i had in the last plugin? it seems i have to.
So renaming the xenword-3.0.2.01(iirc) to xenword and then upload the new xenword-3.0.5.02 to where?
Cant one update without having to reconfigure it again?

Also i see that after i updated the forum to 4.5 it seems like it takes my WP user-name-link
“firstname-lastname” instead of using
“Firstname Lastname”
[I]Sorry cant explain that much clearer[/I] 😛

The signature lines don't look good.

The code for the signature lines was simply an aside and has been removed. It would just take too much work to do BBCode parsing.

Is this version the same as the version in the store?

Not yet Curie. I've been working on the authentication and fixing a few bugs.

Upgrading requires uploading the zip file via Add New in the Plugins part of the WordPress admin area. During the install, the correct folder will be created. Don’t do anything via sFTP.

I’d wait for 3.0.6.01 to be tested on this site and upgrade to it. There are a few minor bug fixes and a huge change in authentication.

Hello, I’m still fighting with comment system. For old articles, here is what is displayed :
[ATTACH=full]1154[/ATTACH]

in WP, only WP comments are display and the bubble with comment counts goes to XF.
How is it possible to diplay both of them please ?

By the way, it is not translated !

XF 1.5.7
WP 4.5.1
XW 3.0.5-02

[USER=23512]@STEF[/USER] — the hook used is comments_array. This means a WordPress comment must be created before all things fire. Write a WordPress comment and you’ll see what happens.

I’ve thought about other hooks but want to make sure sites aren’t buggered up with an upgrade as intense as 3.0.5. And version 3.0.6 with the new authentication is going to be even more intense.

Sounds good. Any rough estimate on how many features you’ll need to work through before you get to comment synchronization?

Not at the moment. I’m trying to get the new authentication code down and it’s taking all of my energy.
