Infamous Dooodl Bug be gone!

For those of you who don’t know Dooodl, my fun little WordPress plugin, read about it here and here.

I was kind of hesitant to post this publicly but it kind of looks as if the last Dooodl update I committed  last week is working out nicely. I contacted a few of the people who were having issues with the saving of the Dooodl to test-run the new Dooodl version. They all came back to me with positive feedback.

So I’m glad to announce that the infamous ‘Dooodls not saving‘-bug is finally gone. However, I’m not the one to take credit for this fix. In fact a commenter posted it on the blog about 2-3 weeks ago. So big thanks to Fischi for his help in fixing this!
Since I’m unable to reproduce the issue, I had no way of finding out if it works. The plugin still works on my blog, so I’m guessing the changes didn’t break anything 🙂 Thanks to those of you who tested the changes and confirmed it works!

Check it out and let me know if it works for you!

PS: The plugin just reached 6500 downloads a few days ago: THAT’S MASSIVE! Thanks to all of you!
More PS: I just got a tip I should replace the short PHP opening tags by the normal ones and insert closing PHP tags in all files to reduce the chance for errors. Another update should be pushed online soon! 😉

    When will you update for the latest wordpress update so I can install this plugin, as it looks fun for me to put on my blog too.

    Hey Sue,

    The plugin should be working with the current version of WordPress 🙂
    If you’re having trouble, let me know. We’ll see what we can do 🙂

    I would like to show 5 of the last doodles on my page… instead of just showing the latest. Is there a way to do this?

    Previously, my editor user had access to the moderation queue and other settings for the Dooodl plugin. I recently updated WP and several plugins, and now my editor user has lost access.

    (To complicate things, I don’t remember whether that access was provided natively or was something I’d previously edited to make happen.)

    Hoping you can, nevertheless, help me restore admin panel access to the moderation queue, etc., for my editor user….

    Many thanks.

    Hey Cole,

    Thanks for the suggestion! I think it’s an interesting idea. I’ll edit the plugin in the coming weeks to allow a (custom) number of items to be shown. Watch for the update in the WP-admin 😉

    Hey Beck,

    I’m not sure how updating WP could’ve changed the access list for the settings. Maybe there were some internal changes in the WP api. I’ll see what I can do from my side to make sure editors have access to the moderation queue.

    I’ll keep you posted if I have more news.

    Take care!
