S-ButtonZ 1.1.0 Released – WP Plugin

May 1st, 2009

S-ButtonZ 1.1.0 Released

S-ButtonZ 1.1.0 is now available with the new digg API. Some features with API usage include; custom CSS digg buttons and the new threshold setting.

The manual button positioning option is planned for a release date some time in May. Other items in the works are more social media buttons that everyone has been requesting and a new API driven category system for digg buttons. All future updates regarding digg will be released for both S-ButtonZ and diggZ-Et. I’d also like to point out that the current version of diggZ-Et’s settings are transferable to S-ButtonZ.

If you have any feature suggestions, new buttons you would like to see, or anything at all, feel free to head over to the RSWR feedback forum and post about it.


New diggZ-Et 1.2.2 Release

January 24th, 2009

Today I released a new version of diggZ-Et 1.2.2. This release is just a minor code clean up release for 2.7 to address the new UI in the admin backend of WordPress. The old topic category, “2008 Elections” was removed and the new “Olympics” topic category was added in place. Our other plugins will also be cleaned up for the admin in the next few days.

I also plan to release a new plugin that will be a bundled version of all four of our current social media button plugins. New buttons for other services will be made available in the future. I’m having trouble coming up with a name for this plugin. Ideas for a plugin name and suggestions towards the plugin is appreciated.


RSWR News #3

November 16th, 2008

Four new releases for this week regarding our four button plugins for WordPress. Fixed a bug causing variables to clash four while using any of these four plugins together. We have a few more plugins in development that are not social media related. Should have one released before the end of 2008.

We also released a new button plugin a few days ago: buzzZ-Et (Yahoo! Buzz Buttons)


Testing diggZ-Et in Multiple Browsers

June 1st, 2008

Every, day as always, I use both Opera and Firefox browsers simultaneously. I have a dual screen setup so it’s addictive to do separate tasks on each screen. Every day I seem to find a new reason for why Firefox is so much better than Opera. Yet I still use Opera every day even though it becomes more and more painful with each new update they put out. As I was testing the newest version of diggZ-Et today I noticed in opera it would slow down my blog’s homepage. It would literally take twenty seconds to load, being the same result every time. At first I thought, geese something in my code must be choking WordPress. So I load it in Firefox and my blog homepage loads in three seconds. I think Opera’s system for handling JavaScript is the culprit, as I have noticed it handles JavaScript much slower than other browsers. So I decided to test diggZ-Et in all the mainstream browsers to see how the performance differentiates between browsers.
