Here we go with the 5th release of the Upcoming Events plugin. Again, I’m sure this won’t solve everybody’s problems with past versions, but it solves a few more than 0.4 did. Fixes in this version include:
- Allow multiple widgets that can display different feeds
- Fix a PHP 4 compatibility issue
- Make the popups with event details fade in and out
- code_name can no longer start with an underscore. If you have feeds with this setting now, the plugin will continue to work, but the next time you try to update your options you’ll be required to change it.
There are, of course, fixes that didn’t make the short list. For a complete log, see http://dev.wp-plugins.org/log/upcoming-events.
IMPORTANT: With past versions you could simply unzip the file into your wp-content/plugins directory in place of the current upcoming-events contents and be good to go. This update requires one additional step. You must also deactivate and reactivate the plugin on the Plugins tab of the WordPress admin interface. Once reactivated, if you use widgets you’ll need to visit the Widget config settings on the Presentation tab in order to re-add the Upcoming Events widget. This is because of the new ability to add multiple widgets.
