“Now Reading” Plugin and WordPress 2.8

Sunday, June 14th, 2009

Overall my WordPress 2.8 upgrade went fairly well, at least as far as any site visitors would see. The admin was a different story.1 After some poking around2 I was surprised to find out it was Rob Miller‘s fabulous Now Reading WordPress plugin3 preventing me from editing posts.

I’m not sure exactly what changed in WordPress to trigger the issue, but after some poking I tracked down the problem, and I think I found a solution other than removing the plugin.

In the file wp-content/plugins/now-reading/url.php, look for the following:

function is_now_reading_page() {
global $wp;
$wp->parse_request();

I commented out the call to $wp->parse_request(); and it fixed the problems I was having with the site admin, and so far it seems Now Reading is unaffected by this change.

  1. If you’ve ever used the Google Gears/Turbo Mode stuff in the WordPress Admin, I advise you to do the upgrade in a different browser because it seems to be responsible for a lot of problems folks are having with the automated upgrade []
  2. and upgrading one of my own plugins []
  3. It powers the library pages here on the site. []

Use Google Libraries 1.0.6

Required Upgrade for Users of WordPress 2.8

I’ve updated my Use Google Libraries plugin to support WordPress 2.8.

  • Disables script concatenation in WordPress 2.8, since it seems to have issues when some of the dependencies are outside of the concatenation.
  • Persists flag to load scripts in the footer in WordPress 2.8

If you’re using WordPress 2.8, you’ll want to upgrade ASAP.  Download it from the Plugin Directory (or use the auto-update feature). If you find it useful, feel free to leave a tip.
