What’s new in 2.1.1 ?

  • Two new tabs added : How To (WP 2.8 only) & Support the plugin

What’s new in 2.1 ?

Almost one year without update, but here it is :

  • jQuery scripts bugs with WordPress 2.8 resolved.
  • The admin interface is successfully checked as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
  • Bug in checkboxes in Options Tab resolved.
  • Better visual integration with WordPress 2.7+
  • You can now add multiples Category Icons widgets.
  • You can include just some categories thank to the new “Include” field in the widget.
  • Two options were missing from the start : maximum icon width & maximum icon height.
  • You can choose the access type to the database : an access for every icon (a query for each icon) which is the default option, or one access for all the icons (one query for all).
  • Added compatiblity with Rob Marsh’s plugins (http://rmarsh.com/) : recent posts, recent comments & similar posts. Just add in output filter : {caticons} to see the first category icon.
  • Compatible with WordPress MU 2.8.1

The translations need to be updated. You’ll find all the .po files in the archive if you’re willing to help. Thanks for that. :) Make sure the .pot file creation date is :
POT-Creation-Date: 2009-07-23 12:43+0100
Or download it from the svn repository.

What’s new in 2.0.7 ?

This is a recommended update !
  • Compatibility with My Category Order added.
  • I’ve added some links to Category Icons’s blog.
  • You can now sort a column of the category icons table by clicking its header. If you want to come back to the initial sort state, refresh the page.
  • The widget is now embedded in category-icons.php. The file category-icons_widget.php is not needed anymore, so you just have to activate only the plugin itself (the widget is automatically activated when you activate the plugin).
  • The check for the field priority is removed. May be it will avoid some issues with MySQL… 
  • The “Template Code” tab is renamed “Template Tags”…
Update :
  • Italian language updated by Gianni. Thank you Gianni !!!
  • Turkish language added by Selim Basak.

What’s new in 2.0.6 ?

  • Compatibility with qTranslate updated.
  • Compatibility with Admin Drop Down Menus added.
  • Compatibility with SEO Friendly Images updated : when you used SEO plugin, the ALT and TITLE attributes in the sidebar contained the last post title instead of the category names.
  • New language added : Russian (translation by Dimox).
Soon, new languages will be added : swedish, brazilian & maybe portuguese…

What’s new in 2.0.5 ?

I’ve found a plugin : SEO Friendly Images. As I’ve removed the SEO thing since v2.0, I’ve added the compatibility with that plugin, which saves me a lot of time. :-D

If that plugin is activated and if you want to use it with your icons, just check the option :

Use the SEO Friendly Images Plugin
