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).
What’s new in this release?
- Greeting message now fades out when the close button is clicked.
- Frontend greeting message display now uses AJAX to display the proper greeting message.
- There is no longer a need to pre-generate a static wp-greet-box.js file for these greeting
- Greeting message administration UI became a lot easier and quicker after AJAXification.
messages. This also fixes the “Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wp_greet_box()” error that many people are getting from incorrect permissions.
I encourage everybody to upgrade. Also don’t forget to write about the plugin if you like it!
