SDN Contributor WordPress Widget Update

Today my pal Abesh pinged me because the widget would throw an XML error and ruin the beautiful new layout in his blog. A quick look at a couple of other blogs using the WordPress widget or the hosted version showed the same error. After diving into the code I discovered that the fine folks from SDN had made a minor change in the blog feed XML. They removed DOCTYPE tag (which shouldn’t have been there in the first place) and revealed a bug in my work around to remove the unnecessary tag.

If you got some feedback lately about a ugly error in your blogs sidebar, go get the update and don’t forget to deactivate it first before replacing the files.

PS: I recently updated the widget to WordPress 2.5, did you noticed? Abesh is probably right and I should submit it to the WP Plugin databse.

  1. Damn right bro 🙂 The Plugin is a beautiful piece of work and it should be there on the WP Plugin Database. Also makes it use the WP plugin update notification facility to make everyone automatically update their plugin in case of such an eventuality (bug fix ;)).

    PS: Yeah, I am still awake 😀

  2. […] out to my friend Oliver Kohl whom I’ve been constantly pestering to upload his fantastic SDN Contibutor plugin to the official wordpress repository. It’s a damn good plugin and he should upload it […]
