WP Edit Pr 4.0 Soon to be Released
WP Edit Pro 4.0 is scheduled to be released in the next couple of days. This release takes the old WP Edit Pro; and injects a completely new user experience.
The older WP Edit Pro had a few issues with network administration. This has been updated in the new WP Edit Pro. When network activated; the super admin can “switch” between subsites to administer their settings individually.
Also, most of the functions, hooks and filters have been moved into a single plugin class. This will help tremendously with loading times, and also allow custom filters to be added; changing the functionality of some of the options.
So what to expect from WP Edit Pro 4.0?
- Updated network administration to allow independent subsite administration (each subsite can have different options).
- Code improvements. WP Edit Pro 4.0 uses a Singleton class for most all functions.
- Newly updated administration mode.
- When switching between different subsite options; those options are stored to the corresponding subsite.
- When users are on that subsite; they use the independent subsite options.
- New mode for administering button arrangements.
- Create different button arrangements by user role.
- Create different button arrangements by user capability.
- Create different button arrangements for each user.
- This new button administration system gives complete control over which users have access to which buttons.
- Options are now stored in a single option entry; which expedites the loading and execution of the plugin.
- Options will need to be converted to the new option array. Users will be prompted to convert their options.
Two options have been removed from WP Edit Pro 4.0.
- PHP Widgets – This option introduces a potential security risk whereby a user could insert malicious code into the system.
- Disable wpautop – With the update to WordPress 4.3; the wpautop filter is no longer used. More below…
I will be working diligently to provide an improved solution. The original function to disable the wpautop filter was hackish as best, anyways. A very immediate future update of WP Edit Pro will include an improved system for handling p and br tags.
Do you like what you hear so far? If so, I could definitely use your help!! This update is a major revision to WP Edit Pro. With over 20,000 lines of code, a bug is going to inevitably slip through. Your help in squashing these bugs prior to public release would be most appreciated.
Please contact me using the form on this site; and I will send the beta version along with instructions.
