WP Grins isn’t a plugin I use myself, so it’s been languishing a bit. I took a couple of hours this morning and updated it. There are a couple of changes, all good ones I think:
- It is now a “pure plugin” – it no longer requires any modifications of core or theme files.
- It is compatible with the rich text editor in WP 2.0 and WP 2.1.
- It now requires WP 2.0 or greater, and Prototype (included for WP 2.0.x).
- A new README in the new format.
I’ve tested it with and without the rich text editor on WordPress 2.0 and 2.1, seems to work as expected.
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.

Woo hoo! Thanks for that.
It may be a shrewd marketing maneuver the way you currently do things, but could you start including a description of the plugins in these little plugin update notes? I’d like to know what a plugin does before I read about what’s been improved.
If anyone would like to volunteer to write better release announcement or help with the README’s, etc. I’d be happy to accept the help.
Otherwise, I guess y’all are stuck with what I’ve got time for. 🙂
It’s nice to see this works right out of the box along with Ajax Comments. Thanks Alex.
I should think the name, “WP Grins” is all the description anyone needs.
By far, my favorite plug-in ever, Alex. Thanks.
Great plugin, so it’s nice to see an update to it. This was my first plugin used and still today my favorite. 😛
I love this plugin! I remember the first time I came across it… and thinking, whoah, I’m definitely going to install this baby.
Keep up the good work/updates.
i understand you only left the wp_grins function for legacy, but i wonder if there is (or will/could be) a way to call “the grins” with an include so that they can be placed somewhere else.
thanks in advance and kudos for your work. 😉
It kind of works but doesn’t. See.
This is a test of the smiley system. 😯 😀
[…] 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. […]
