Version 3.0 and later of the Community News plugin will not be backwards compatible with version 2 and earlier. But you might have a lot of posts already that will be lost if you choose to update the plugin. To help you with the update, I made a little plugin that helps you converting all of the old posts to work with the new version.
It’s time for the first beta version to be tested! This first beta contains a lot of bug fixes, significant performance increments and other improvements. For more information on all the changes, view the link below.
Depending on how many problems are found during testing, there will be one or two more beta versions before a final release, but I think the plugin is pretty stable at this point. Please try it and tell me what you think about it!
Update: A new release has been uploaded, containing a few critical bug fixes that were discovered.
DETAILS: FV Community News Beta 1, Convert your old posts.
The third and final alpha version is now available and needs heavy testing!
A second alpha version is available now!
A little while ago I talked about a complete new version of the FV Community News plugin. This version will take advantage of the custom post type that WordPress supports. Today an alpha preview is available for you to see what direction the plugin is going into. Keep in mind that this version is not for use on a live website, since it can and probably will contain bugs!
