Popularity Contest Plugin (beta 4)

I’ve posted beta 4 of my Popularity Contest plugin. This release has one main change: better compatibility with foreach loops and PHP installations that have register_globals enabled.

In the plugin code, I access cached WordPress data whenever I can so I don’t have to make additional database queries. However, depending on the syntax used for you Loop (while vs. foreach) and various settings on your server, there were several cases where there could be variable name collisions that caused problems (like the “only one post shows” problem a few folks reported). I believe I’ve fixed most of these.

I also added checks for unpublished posts – though I don’t think this was much of an issues since those posts shouldn’t be that popular. 🙂

Please post support questions and bug reports in the support thread.
