XenWord Development in July 2016


It’s hard to believe that half of the year has already passed. XenWord 3.0 Gold was going to be released last month but important bug fixes were needed and it was important to let more people test out XenWord

The contributions by several members has been outstanding and the code keeps getting cleaner.

I tackled the inserting of XenWord members into the WordPress database today. The code was spaghetti. The code needs cleaning up for the updating of users, since this appears a sticking point for several sites.

Here is the changelog for as of July 2, 2016

( 114 ) – July 2, 2016

Tested with WordPress 4.6 beta 1
Bug Fix: rewrite of adding XF users to WP database
Bug Fix: added tag creation conditionals during insert new thread
Bug Fix: wp-login.php accessible after login
New code: class-xenword-add-wpusers.php, update_user_status for multisite
New code: class-xenword-add-wpusers.php, update_user_meta xf_user_id for future use

I specifically want to thank Gracie for all of her hard work. She’s doing a great job helping all of the new customers.

Please watch the bug reports forum as well as the suggestions forum so we can make this plugin even better.

Important: I’ll be in training July 10-22 and not available. Gracie also wants to go on vacation. We haven’t figured out how this will work but don’t want to leave anyone without support.
