Instructions For Updating CJ-Datafeed < v1.5

In WP 3.1.2, they didn’t deactivate plugin anymore when updating it… doh.

If you do automatic update, you need to deactivate and reactivate CJ-Datafeed v1.5 to create template system values.

If you get empty template values and no “v1.5” show in admin pages, simply deactivate and reactivate CJ-Datafeed.

If it’s your first installation, have no worry about that.


CJ-Datafeed v1.5 Released

You will be please to use the latest version of CJ-Datafeed.

I redesign the admin interface to take advantage of the WP functions to display nice form and user messages. I implement some security features too. I now use the function “nounce” that WP provide to prevent malicious access to CJ-Datafeed forms.

I fixed several bugs in the post import loop. I also fix the categories creation and timestamp for future post. It’s was very ugly … I lacked WP knowledge when I first wrote the code. Lucky you, I’m getting better everyday !

I’m now trying to implement what I learn from my new book Professional WordPress Plugin Development. It’s a real must have for serious WP coders. I should have this one earlier…

WP Multisites is still not supported but it will be soon. I had to fix the upload process to support MU installation.

Coding and fixing things is time consuming, your support is vital. If you are a active user and enjoy CJ-Datafeed, don’t forget to share your success with a donation.

More CJ-Datafeed v1.5 News…

I finally did major updates and corrections to the create post function.

Categories creation was my nightmare but I finally manage to code it cleanly. Getting back to my ugly code and fixing it, required me some time. It was a challenging one but it worth the effort.

I now try to follow WP coding rules and recommendations as much as I can.

Thanks to my new book

CJ-Datafeed Generating False Clicks

Be sure to uncheck the “Attempt to notify any blogs linked in from the article” option in WP-Admin->Settings->Discussion before importing datafeed with CJ-Datafeed plugin.

I tested it with my new CJ-API plugin that use the same “create_post()” WP function and it fix the false click problem that CJ affiliates experienced lately.

I didn’t tested with CJ-Datafeed yet ( I’m 100% busy with CJ-API ) but it should fix it.

I plan to release a update to uncheck this option automatically before importing new post. Check for CJ-Datafeed v1.05 coming soon
