ACE is not dead – 1.5 is coming


Actually, I was not updating ACE, since I havn’t got ANY problems with it, on the sites I’am using it, on a daily basis.

Thus I can’t do anything with comments that say “it does not work with wp 2.9”. Because it does work. Although if you can’t see any difference for example in widgets, itΒ  can be a theme issue. Or if it’s suddenly stop working, it can be an ISP issue, who upgraded PHP wihtout notifying you.

Please, if you really want to help, stop saying “it does not work”, please describe the problem correctly, than I could help ypu work it out.

About the new version

New exclusion sections have been added like 404 error page, Attachment page and so on.
New native Categories widgets support have been added, and there is a new configuration page for Categories Widget. Recent comments and Recent posts configuration is on the way. It will be available in final ACE 1.5.

And also some translations have been submitted in the mean time.
I’ll include them as well.

ACE 1.4 is out


One and a half month passed since I’ve wrote about 1.4… But finally it’s here πŸ˜‰

Let’s see what’s new here:

  • New exclusion methods
  • New helps for each option
  • Link exclusion by section
  • Link category exclusion by section
  • Page exclusion by section
  • New exclusion method
  • Genuine widget support

What have been removed

  • ACE recent posts
  • ACE categories

These widgets have been removed because now we are able to hook your exclude rules through the genuine widgets, so you do NOT need ACE recent posts widget and ACE categories widget. And now you’ll be able to use different page and post manipulation widgets as far as they handle standard wordpress hooks according to posts.

1.3.1 is out with Google XML Sitemap support


This version of ACE has basically two new features:

  • I’ve added a help text under each setting to provide more help to our users, understand what does that particluar option mean
  • Integration with Google XML SItemap plugin. This means, your can manipulate not only your RSS feeds, but your sitemap as well, if you want to. I say that, because it is totally optional.

In the next release I’ll come up with more integration and import functions.
So stay tuned.

Advanced Category Excluder 1.3 is here!


Hey πŸ˜‰

The next version of ACE has just came out. It contains main improvements, accodring to user requests, and it works with WordPress 2.7. Well, nothing serious changed in the new WordPress release that would prevent ACE to work as epected, but it sounds great anyway πŸ˜‰

First of all, you’ll notice a new option in the options tab. With this option you can set, if you only want to enble exclusion in the widgets. Of course it will have NO affect, if you are not using our bundeled widgets πŸ™‚

Another brand new stuff will be in the sections. You’ll find a Disable robots section. If you check this, every post in the selected category will be hidden from web crawlers, even if All in One SEO pack is installed πŸ˜‰

There are some improvements as well. You’ll notice, that now widgets works more than perfectly. Let’s say you are at your home page, and you have excluded a category from the front, and also from the widgets. You won’t see any comment to any post in that category, even if you go deeper, into the blog. But if you are listing that categories posts, our you are watching a post that is in that excluded category, suddenly your recent comments, and recent posts widgets will show you the entries related to those categories. Cute, huh? πŸ™‚

I want to say a special thank you for those of you, who have contributed to this release, with translation, idea, helped people in my project blog, or with patch/code.

You are:

  • Aaron D. Campbell
  • Jean-Michel MEYER
  • Mikael Jorhult
  • philtre
  • costela

And finally I want to thank you for your donations, that makes me feel proud. Not because of the value of the money I’ve received so far, but for the fact, that my work has value, and totally foreigners takes the time and the effort to transfer me money, and support this project.
Thank you very much.

ACE version 1.2.3 is out!


Finally it’s ready πŸ™‚

This version contains own widgets, that can be activated also in the plugins tab.

Currently we have 3 widgets:

  • ACE Recent Comments
  • ACE Recent Posts
  • ACE Categories

Each of them can be used to replace, the original sidebar widgets. The options, and the functionality is the same, as the original ones, except, that these widgets do support your exclusion options.

By the way, this is the first version when I bundle translations as well.
A big thank you goes out to Mikael Jorhult for the Swedish translation, and I did the hungarian one.

I accept translations for other languages, thus I included the POT file, for localizers. SO translations are always welcome.

1.2.1 is out, to provide WordPress 2.6 support


This is just a bugfix version, because yesterday, a bug has been reported.
And I also add support for WordPress 2.6.

To be honest it was compatible with WP 2.6 before, and only the localization needs the correct wp-content directory path.

In the mean time, I found another bug, accoriding to the Dashboard. So 1.2.2 is the current version.
