I’ve recently been thinking about the need to standardize WordPoints’s WordPress compatibility policy and release cycle for the benefit of module development. I’ve sort of tried to standardize WordPoints’s release cycle before, but it never really happened. However, the development of many new modules will mean that there will need to be a definite betaRead more
Over time I’ve received many feature requests for WordPoints, and I’ve kept track of them in a list on my computer. But I’ve always wanted to make this list public so that people could vote for the requests that they wanted to see implemented. Well, I’ve just converted this list into a Trello board, soRead more
I have been using a platform called Weblate as a place for people to collaborate on translating WordPoints into other languages. This has worked well, but recently WordPress.org has added a new feature: plugins can be translated directly on translate.wordpress.org! In order to keep all of the translation work in one place, I’ve moved theRead more

The release date might come a little later than planned, but I think we can use that extra time to our advantage. As I was workingRead more

The lack of development and support is what prompted me to create WordPoints, in addition to a desire to be able to create more than one type ofRead more
WordPoints 1.10.0 is currently in development, with plans to release it around the end of February. WordPoints has required at least WordPress version 3.8 since version 1.7.0. I’ve made the decision to update the requirement to at least WordPress 3.9. The reason for this it twofold: first, WordPress 3.8 is 4 versions old and peopleRead more
A few moments ago I released WordPoints 1.9.0. This version includes various improvements of existing features. One of the biggest changes in this release is that the Post Delete and Comment Removed hooks are now deprecated. If you are upgrading from an older version, don’t worry; you’ll still be able to use them. But theyRead more
If you’ve been paying attention, you know that the last two versions of WordPoints included minor security fixes. If you’ve been paying attention and you have a basic understanding of security, you’ve updated as quickly as possible. While on the one hand finding security issues in a plugin seems like a bad thing, it isRead more
