I just tried to install the Disclosure Policy Plugin in WP v2.6 and received a fatal error. I was happy to see that WP stopped the attempt, with no damage done to the database. I’m hoping that this trackback to the plugin authors page will nudge a response as to whether there will be any updates to the plugin. If not, perhaps a simple edit to the download page will be made. It would be greatly appreciated!
I did a search in the WP Plugin directory for the Disclosure Policy Plugin, but got no results. The search function there never seams to work for me. If I get any results at all, it seams to be the exact same list as the “Most Popular” plugins list. *sigh* It wasn’t until I did a Google search that I found the plugin on the WP site.
# Version: 1.0
# Other Versions »
# Last Updated: 2007-8-15
# Requires WordPress Version: 2.0 or higher
# Compatible up to: 2.2
So much for that! I was following the links on a great article by Lorelle about copyright when I started running into the same issue with all the plugins related to copyright. None of them have been updated for quite some time.
With the search function being so weird on the WP Extend site, I’m having trouble finding anything other than the Creative-Commons-Configurator WordPress Plugin, which is also no longer being supported.
I found (through Google, not the WP extend search function) the creative commons license widget which shows the following stats:
# Version: 0.7
# Other Versions »
# Last Updated: 2008-7-22
# Requires WordPress Version: 2.0.2 or higher
# Compatible up to: 2.5
# Author Homepage »
While I’m not terribly fond of the CC license verbiage (I would prefer the word “all” to their “Some” rights reserved blurb), I did decide to try the widget out of desperation. There simply isn’t an alternative that I’m aware of. Even though it’s listed as being compatible up to only v2.5, the latest update was done only five days ago, so I kept my fingers crossed that it would work in 2.6. As you can see in my sidebar, the widget worked. *whew*
I’ve still got so much work to do here. Disclaimers, policies, terms. A girl’s just not allowed to be lazy these days!
