Released SEO No Duplicate Version 0.2

Canonical Custom FieldSEO No Duplicate WordPress plugin version 0.2 is here!

What’s new this release?

This version of SEO No Duplicate has two enhancements.

  1. Previously the plugin only supported automatically setting canonical URLs for only post pages. I know… crazy right? Thanks to Joost De Valk’s Canonical WordPress plugin, I was able to implement canonical links for all types of WordPress pages.
  2. The little icing on the cake. This version lets you manually override any post’s or page’s canonical URL by assigning any URL to that post/page custom field named “canonical”. (Thanks Matt Harzewski for the suggestion!)

Released Buy Sell Ads WP Plugin Version 0.2

Buy Sell Ads optionsBuy Sell Ads WordPress plugin version 0.2 is here!

What’s new this release?

This version of Buy Sell Ads WordPress plugin has two minor enhancements.

  1. Previously the nonce key is automatically generated every time you visit the Buy Sell Ads plugin options page. Now the nonce key automatically regenerates every half hour by default and this interval is configurable. This enhancement helps combat people who visit your blog, comment “It took all of 2 seconds to block all ads from this site”, and run off. When they return more than half an hour later, they will see the advertisement again because the nonce key has changed.
  2. Previously advertisement URLs were redirected through the plugin’s proxy but most of the URL was still unshielded. Now the entire advertisement URL is encrypted into a random string. This enhancement combined with one above officially makes this plugin too smart for AdBlock Plus to figure out.

Released WP Greet Box Version 4.3

What’s new in this release?

On this release, I added the ability to detect the visitor’s search keywords and use those keywords to display related posts for the visitor. *IMPORTANT* Upon upgrading, make sure you deactivate then reactivate the plugin. This will give you default settings for newly available options.

Currently this works for the main search engines and other search engines that adhere to a few standard rules of query structuring.

This is what your visitors will see if search keywords were detected in the referrer:

Released WP Greet Box Version 4.2

I received a lot of great feedback for versions 4.0-4.1.1, so I decided to incorporate some of those suggestions into version 4.2. I have also ran through my 25 test cases prior to releasing the code so hopefully, this release will go a lot smoother than version 4.0 release. *IMPORTANT* Upon upgrading, make sure you deactivate then reactivate the plugin. This will give you default settings for newly available options.

Released WP Greet Box Version 4.0

I think this version of WP Greet Box is ground breaking enough to bump the version up to 4.0. To be honest, the reason version 4.0 came out so early is because I just found out 3 days ago (via Google Alerts) that I have a new competitor, Referrer Detector, written by Phan Van An. He seems like a really nice guy (he mentions my name repeatedly in the post), but he could have at least contacted me about co-authoring before forking the code :). With that said, I checked out Referrer Detector and decided to implement some of its wonderful changes in WP Greet Box and expand WP Greet Box to be able to work with WPMU (Thank you Andy Beard for your suggestion).

Released WP Greet Box Version 3.1

Released WP Greet Box version 3.0

I’ve been quiet for the past week for many reasons, but the most important reason is that I’ve been working on WP Greet Box version 3.0.  It turned out that there we so many positive responses (and feature requests) on the WP Greet Box plugin that all I could do is work on it whenever I get the chance (at coffee shops, during lunch breaks, before sleeping, etc).  It sounds tiring, but it was all worth it!

What happened to version 2.0?

I silently released version 2.0 after adding the ability to add your own custom greeting messages per referrer URL.

What’s new in this release?

This release has cookies support so now we do not keep showing the same message to returning visitors.  I also added a configurable default message to show when no referrer match is found.

Where do I download, file bugs, make feature requests, comments, and suggestions?
