WordPress Plugin v2.3

It’s that time again folks; time for an update to the WordPress plugin. Version 2.3 features several updates that correspond to a lot of work we’ve been doing on our end to improve performance, make importing more robust and generally improve your experience. Here are the details from the Changelog (which now appears in the WordPress plugin directory!).

  1. Fixed a bug where if you didn’t have a blog title configured in WordPress, you wouldn’t be able to authenticate with IntenseDebate to set up the plugin,
  2. Switched to using PHP native json_* functions where available to increase performance
  3. Limited the size of outgoing sync requests to speed up communication between blogs and intensedebate.com and avoid maxing out request/response sizes (on both ends)
  4. Added a tag to the error_log info for easier debugging/filtering.

We have a lot planned for the next version of the plugin, most of which is based on feedback from you all out there. Work has already begun on v2.4 and we’ll get it into your hands as soon as possible. You should get an upgrade notice for v2.3 in your WordPress admin panel soon, if you haven’t got it already.

If you haven’t started using IntenseDebate on your WordPress website yet, there’s no time like the present: Get started now and enhance your comments!

  1. When will the 2.3 update show up on my WP plugins page for push-button automatic upgrading?

  2. The update should appear on your WP plugins page now. If for some reason it's not, you can always download it from here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/intensedebate

  3. Odd. I'm still not seeing it, and when I search for IntenseDebate through WP's Install Plugins page, the messaging tells me "Latest Version Installed," despite the fact that I only have 2.2. I know I can install manually through y'all's website, but that involves firing up FTP instead of just clicking a button.

    I guess I'll just be patient.

  4. Yep, I've seen it take up to 6 hours from memory, it all depends on which server you're hitting, when your WP install last checked, etc etc. It caches those results and it can take time to get out to all of the servers hosting the WP plugin directory. Sit tight and you should see it soon😉

  11. Me and Beau figured this out that ID was having issue when the blog title in WP was empty. I am glad the ID team have included that in ver 2.3

    Beau,

    Thanks for the updated file the sites works well and today after almost a month that i first installed ID plugin its finally working on http://www.gigathoughts.com

    I would like to sincerely thank the ID team for their outstanding support, specifically Beau really understood my situation and gave me a step by step evaluation of the problem and finally we have nailed the damn problem.

    I would urge everyone who is having issues with ID plugin to be patient and persistent as the ID team will help you solve the problem and you will be able to super charge your comments with ID.

    Also people who are using WP 2.7.1 and are having issues with ID can contact me and i will be more than happy to help. desaiamit(at)gmail(dot)com

  12. In the previous WordPress plugin version some new comments were still showing up in the side of the dashboard right after being approved.

    2.3 fixed this 😀
