XML Sitemap & Google News plugin now fully WPML compatible

Many users have been asking for WPML compatibility but I had never come around to having a serious look into the matter, until one user, Hermes Andreu, kindly shared his patch. It was the final nudge I needed to get serious.

Options for Easy FancyBox plugin after all

The WordPress plugin Easy FancyBox was created to fulfil some wishes:

  • Simplicity — Other Fancybox plugins come with complete lists of  options and overcomplicated settings.  Some of which don’t even work…
  • FancyBox 1.3.1 — Looking for de newest option to display the image title in an overlay, this turned out to be impossible with other plugins because they all use older versions of the FancyBox script.
  • Multi-site compatible — and finally the plugin had to be compatible with WPMU 2.9+ and WP3.0+ in Multi Site mode. Preferably also from within the /mu-plugins/ directory.

And soon the plugin was born… Continue reading
