I didn’t notice that the Manga+Press plugin wasn’t active on the demo site, and apparently, not all of my images were backed up. So basically, the demo site is still a little broken. Sadly, I won’t be able to get to it until this weekend.
Almost everything is back. The last thing that needs to be done is upload the old uploads folder. Until that happens, you may notice broken images.
Please be patient. I did some server changes last night, and things may be a little broken. The demo site, for one, is currently down, but other posts should be accessible.
And yes, I had to post this using SQLPro. Even the the wp-admin area is broken :\
Manga+Press 3.0 works with WordPress 5.0. Which, I figured it would because the plugin doesn’t use the editor at all.
However, it should be noted that’s for posting comics. More testing still needs to be done on the pages that modify the_content filter—specifically the Latest/Archive page functionality yet.
Scratch that out. The demo site is running WP 5.0.1, and the archive/latest comic pages are looking fine. I’ll wait for additional bug-reports, but from my end, Manga+Press works with WordPress 5.0.
At some point, I’ll update the plugin readme files to indicate that it does work with WordPress 5.0.
I haven’t had a chance to test Manga+Press (either the current version or the beta) with 5.0, so I have no idea of how it will work with the new changes in WordPress 5.0. My working assumption is that Manga+Press 3.0 will/should work because I’m not doing any with the editor—although, I can’t rule out potential changes to
the_content filter that 3.0 is currently using.
That being said, I don’t have plans to release 4.0 until after New Years, while I will need to perform tests with WordPress 5.0 and Manga+Press 3.0 to assure users that it still works. Which, with the Thanksgiving holiday next week, I likely won’t have time to do those tests until after WordPress 5.0’s projected release date, which has been pushed to the 27th.
What comes after?
That’s a good question. Assuming everything works in 3.0 as it should, 4.0 will be tested and refactored against WP 5.0’s changes. After that, and after some soul-searching, I’m going to make the decision that I won’t be continuing active development on Manga+Press beyond bug-fixes and WP core updates. I still want to implement the features I had planned for the original 4.0 release, but it occurred to me that trying to cram more features into what should be a simple comic browsing/management plugin would be pointless, and doesn’t go with my original goals for the plugin.
Basically, it’s a “we’ll see” scenario.
