Share This 1.4

I’ve updated my Share This plugin to version 1.4. This includes a number of minor changes since the last release:

  • New method of including Prototype for WP 2.0.x users (can be used by other plugins as well) to avoid including Prototype twice, if possible. This technique is also used in my new WP Grins release.
  • StumbleUpon is included as a default link.
  • Updated FAQ in the README, addressing a few issues I’ve seen in the forums and via e-mail.
  • Added a robots="noindex, noarchive" to the Share This page for each post.
  • Added a missing > symbol.
  • Now using wp_mail() instead of the straight PHP mail() function.
  • Explicitly set the z-index for the pop-up form.

I haven’t gotten around to some of the more significant changes I plan to make, but I figured getting these out there sooner rather than later was a good idea.

Also, I’ve seen a number of translations popping up, if someone wanted to head up an effort to get proper translation files included, I’d be happy to include them. All the strings are abstracted already.

The download and more information are available on my WordPress Plugins page.

If you have any trouble with this, please open a thread in the WP Support Forums and send me the link.
