WordPress Version Check v0.80

WordPress Version Check v0.80 is now available. Upgrade is recommended especially if you are using the Tiger Admin UI as you will now be able to see the plugin’s messages much easier. The changes for the Tiger Admin UI have been tested with v1.3 of the Tiger Admin UI plugin.

There is also now a page for WordPress Version Check which will always have the latest news.

Changes in v0.80:

  1. Added GPL Licence Text.
  2. Added check for Tiger Admin Plugin – When detected alternate CSS is used for message display.
  3. Changed default CSS so that info level messages are displayed in grey rather than green.
  4. Added version info to the IXR UserAgent – To enable tracking versions of the plugin in use.
  5. Used action hooks to ensure only run update checks when in admin ui.
  6. Updated version number to 0.80.

Version 0.80 can be downloaded here: pjw_wp_version_monitor.0.80.zip

    Funny, I just made some changes of my own to the plugin so it would work better with Tiger admin, and then I saw you updated it! I took a different approach, making the text smaller, and putting it below the WordPress logo in the lower left hand version.

    Here is that alternate CSS for anyone who wants to use it. (Crossing my fingers that it won’t get mangled in the comment)

    <style type=’text/css’>
    #pjw_update {
    position: absolute;
    bottom: 3px;
    z-index: 101;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    left: 15px;
    font-size: x-small;
    }

    .warning { color: orange; }
    .critical { color: red; text-decoration:blink; }
    .info { color: #aaa; }
    </style>

    Thanks for the plugin… I’m planning on installing it on all my WordPress clients’ blogs, possibly even modifying the script to send me an e-mail reminding me to upgrade their install.

    Looks like it pasted correctly except for one thing at the top. style='text/css' should have regular straight single quotes, not curly ones.

  3. Mark J says:

    Gah… small mistake. position: absolute; should be position: fixed;

    Here:

    <style type=’text/css’>
    #pjw_update {
    position: fixed;
    bottom: 3px;
    z-index: 101;
    margin: 0;
    padding: 0;
    left: 15px;
    font-size: x-small;
    }

    .warning { color: orange; }
    .critical { color: red; text-decoration:blink; }
    .info { color: #aaa; }
    </style>
