Finally done with the 3rd major iteration of the WP Likes plugin. You can see it in action on this blog. Improvements all around and everything is smoother.
I will enlist a few-
- Renders in one line and more refined customization. No more ‘you and’ being appended everytime. Differentiates between people and a person.
- Translating or reusing the plugin never been so easy.
- Compatible with popular WP Super Cache plugin. Automatically updates the cache for the post which is liked. Inform WP likes that WP Super Cache is enabled from the settings page and it will take care of rest.
I am testing the plugin right now, so far it has no problems with WP 2.9.1. You too can try out the plugin from- http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-likes.3.0.zip . I will mark this as a stable release after a day or two of testing and consequently your wordpress will ask for plugin upgrade.
[Update]: Release time!! This is working like a breeze. If you want further tighter integration(like in WordPress MU) or even more customization, I am offering support at a very nominal fee. Send a mail to me[at]aakash[d0t]me if you need help. Next version will have improved sidebar widget and people tracking of some form.
[Update2]: This does restore the new default CSS. You might want to backup the old css for reference. And there are some alternate like button images in plugin images folder, you might want to try them out!
As always press like if you like it. Keep the bug reports and feedback coming.
