Minor release : V1.5.4 is out

Dear plugin users,

With the recent launch of V1.5.4, I mostly had positive feedback as it seems the latest edits fixed itching issues for several of you. I also received some detailed and actionable feedback around specific issues that still bug some of you. Hopefully this release will help.

  • Improved IE10 support
    After a nice and illustrated note from Manuel F on compatibility issues with IE10 (and below), I took the bull by the horns and reinstalled the whole VMWare and system images to get proper testing done. I’ve found the root cause and fixed it.
    ie10_support
  • New language : Russian
    Blame the Olympics or not but thanks to Massimiliano and one of his clients, the plugin now support Russian. Spasibo !

Coming next :

  1. “Search” button customization.
  2. Restricting the plugin usage to site admins
  3. Ability to open the results within WP instead of pointing to booking.com

Keep the feedback coming and… if you like this plugin, small donations & positive reviews on WordPress.org  are always appreciated :)

Thanks
Greg

Minor release : V1.5.3 is out

Dear plugin users,

With the recent launch of V1.5.2, I received some feedback for very basic things to be addressed and some more longer standing items.

This release being a minor one, I’ll take some of the trivial things out of the way.

  1. Z-index correction : many users reported that the calendars were showing behind their sliders or ads, resulting in an awkward online experience. The z-index was previously defaulting to 1, it is now set to 9999999. You should be fine for a while !
  2. Calendar font size : many users have been surprised by how large the calendars have become. I’ve reduced the porportional font size from 1.1em to 1. You’ll notice it does make a nice difference while still being very much user friendly.
  3. Spanish & Portuguese translations – html encoding : I did miss one html encoding for respectivelly Wednesday & March in the previous release. It’s now fixed.

The long standing items below are still pending :

  1. jQuery conflicts (calendar won’t open),
  2. restricting the plugin usage to site admins
  3. ability to open the results within WP instead of pointing to booking.com

I’ll look at these sporadically in the next few weeks but don’t hold me for delays on these.

Thanks for using the plugin
Greg

Minor release : V1.5.2 is out

Dear plugin users,

With the recent launch of V1.5.1, a number of you did come back with some gaps and examples of where the plugin did fall short.

For this bug-fix release I’ve cleaned the code further and isolated what caused some JS or CSS conflicts for several of you. I received positive feedback from most beta testers (thanks again for your time) qo I’m releasing what I have now.

  • Not only your calendars should load but you’ll now have the ability to pick different calendar skins (as listed in the official jQuery UI Gallery). This long time requested feature will help a number of you to make the calendars look more in line with your WP theme.
    The plugin will load the minified version hosted on google CDN for the JS & CSS file. Assuming your users don’t have it in their cache already, we’re talking about ~10K of code that will be downloaded once, only once, from the super-fast Google servers.
  • I’ve fixed the ASCII encoding error for the days & months.
  • I’ve cleaned the admin panel a little.
