I’ve created an organization on GitHub for handling Manga+Press plugin development. You can spy on progress [here]. Why did I do this? Essentially, it was the only way for me to fork the repo in a way that would allow me to do a pull request back to the original repo.
Which leads me to my next update.
I’m still on the fence about the 3.0.0 update for a variety of reasons, namely the removal of the embedded child-themes, which worries me greatly. I’m not sure how many sites would break if I released the update.
Released a language pack update for Manga+Press 2.9. This mainly updates the languages for the embedded themes. It also corrects the TwentyFourteen child-theme’s stylesheet en-queuing issues. It is available for download on Github, [here], and should be available through the WordPress Plugin Repository shortly.
The beta version of Manga+Press 3.0 is available on Github for testing. Download [here]. Feel free to leave feedback on Manga+Press 3.0 in the comments section of this post, using the “Leave Reply” link below. Thanks!
Some updates. I’ve finally started some tentative work on Manga+Press 3.0. I’m realizing that all of the updates that I wanted to make might not be feasible during this update cycle, namely because of the big change that involves pulling out the themes that come with the plugin. I have a feeling that one change is going to upset a lot of people, specifically people who don’t bother to read what the update is going to involve. Oh well. I’ll have the themes available for download on my Github page for the people who do happen to lose their theme-data. I can’t do anything for people who simply modify the themes outright instead of creating child-themes but I can try to warn people to make sure to backup their files before upgrading. Essentially meaning that I won’t provide help if someone should lose their theme as a result of an update 😉
With that, so what I have decided to pull back? Well, the Gallery feature isn’t going to make it into this release BUT the bookmarking feature will, or at least that’s my current plan. In 2.9.2, I added support for Facebook and Twitter posting via the Jetpack Publicize plugin so that’s out of the way. Other than that, I’ve pushed off some things until 3.1.
Finally, since I do have the project hosted on Github (here), I am looking for people to help out and contribute to the project. At this point, I don’t have enough time to maintain Manga+Press by myself and would like a few people to at least pick up some of the tickets that I have out there.
