Author Avatars List 1.8.0

  • Replaced the pre 2.6 wordpres widget code with the current widget API calls to enable visibility setting
  • Breaking change in CSS *.multiwidget_author_avatars* is now *.widget_author_avatars*. This is caused by a library change in-order to support the jetpack visibility option.
  • If you have added CSS to your theme you may have to update it for this upgrade (do a find and replace).
  • CSS changed .multiwidget_author_avatars changed to .widget_author_avatars. This was caused by the widget API update
  • Added expemently support for Co-Author Plus Plugin – the post count does not work for linked account – will take a patch that fixs it :-)
  • Moved the display option to the right column to make more room for roles
  • Split ‘Recent Activity’ and ‘BudyPress last activity’ (only shows buddypress running) to separate options in the advance ordering option
  • Split / removed ‘Recent Activity’ into sitewide (pages / custom page types / posts) and just posts (any old short-code will call just posts)

I have moved the main code repo to https://github.com/pbearne/wp-author-avatars feel free to create a pull requests and submit patches there.

Author Avatars List 1.7.1

Hi all

Update: found a small bug which I have fixed in 1.7.1

Lots of changes in version 1.7.0 some of which have been in the dev branch for a while

  • Added Local User select to Single Avatar Shortcode creator
  • Replaced wp_specialchars() with esc_html()
  • Removed support pre 3.0 wordpress installs
  • Added BBPRESS_post_count as shortcode display and sort options
  • Added show_email to shortcode display option
  • Added some translation updates
  • Fixed issue with TniyMCE breaking when using HTTPS
  • And a few other tidy ups
  •  Added SQL filter to only fetch the users for the rolls being requested rather than all users
  • Added caching to the main get_users function which will use an object cache if turned on
  • Started to add support for filters so the template can changed via the calling themes.

I have the ability to pick a local user using a drop and you can now show the users email (don’t use this on public page – you will get spam)

email_selector

Some site that have lots of users were find that some queries were very slow so I have tried to help this a better query (small results set) and and caching if you have it turned on. I plan to do some more work on this.

Filters now available do use

apply_filters('aa_userlist_empty', '<p class="no_users">'. __('No users found.', 'author-avatars'). '</p>');
apply_filters('aa_userlist_group_template', $this->group_template)
apply_filters('aa_userlist_group_wrapper_template', $this->group_wrapper_template)
apply_filters('aa_userlist_template', $this->userlist_template)


apply_filters(‘aa_user_template’, $this->user_template,$user)

and here are the default strings

/**
 * Group wrapper template
 * - {groups} is replaced by the list of groups
 */
 var $group_wrapper_template = '<div class="grouped-author-list">{groups}</div>';

 /**
 * Group template
 * - {name} is replaced by the name of the group
 * - {group} is replaced by the list of users
 */
 var $group_template = '<div class="author-group"><strong>{name}</strong><br/>{group}</div>';

 /**
 * Wrapper template
 * - {users} is replaced by the list of users
 */
 var $userlist_template = '<div class="author-list">{users}</div>';

 /**
 * User template
 * - {class} is replaced by user specific classes
 * - {user} is replaced by the user avatar (and possibly name)
 */
 var $user_template = '<div class="{class}">{user}</div>';


I hope this update goes well I had been holding of releasing it as it kept getting big and have found time to test and release
