WP Include File and WordPress 3.0

It came to our attention that some users were experiencing problems with WP Include File v.1.9.12.22 and WordPress 3.0 and above. We were unable to reproduce any problems on our test servers, hence we concluded that the problems were due to incorrect setup of the file paths.

Therefore, WP Include File v.1.9.12.22 works just fine with WordPress 3.0 and WordPress 3.0.1.

However, we have released today WP Include File v.2.10.10.10. This version introduces the Debug Mode to address the problems with incorrect set up of the included file paths. Once enabled, if the file is not found, WP Include File will yield a message in the post page stating where (the path) it is looking for the included file. This will help avoid confusion and save time in setting up the plugin.

You can download the latest version from WordPress Plugin Repository.

AmberPanther acquires LionVineyard.com

Today, June 29 2010, AmberPanther has reached an agreement, and acquired LionVineyard.com.

LionVineyard.com was mainly focused on PHP and WordPress, providing tutorials and solutions. The original site has been put down. All the relevant content has been transferred to our Knowledge Base, stating that it was first published on LionVineyard.com.

The access to the site, as of today, is restricted until the AmberPanther team finishes its work behind the scenes, and launches the new LionVineyard.com.

We have big plans for LionVineyard. We are not ready to disclose what these plans are for the moment, but we believe it’s going to be a new landmark for a specialized sector of the internet industry.

Lionv’s Playground is closed, but here it is, how it looked this morning…

We Stop Spam Together!

Yes, we do stop spam! But together! We set the mechanisms to stop spammers from filling the web with junk, but we need your help as well to stop them.

When navigating around the AmberPanther website, you will notice the implementation of form validation methodologies, in order to stop bots from spamming the site. The implementations we are using so far, are reCAPTCHA, and our in-house developed Math Skill Test. We will not ask you “Are you human?“, but we ask you to stop spam together!

reCAPTCHA as it appears on AmberPanther site

Someone may argue that this methodologies are far from optimal and non user-friendly, as they require extra effort from the visitor, and sometimes the reCAPTCHA images can be hard to read. So we ask you for your help, we ask you for those extra 2 seconds, in order to stop spam together. And together we will make the web a better place, stopping spammers one at a time.

We are investigating other CAPTCHA methodologies and we will update accordingly.

Google Pays Tribute to Newton’s Birthday with the First Animated Doodle – A Falling Apple

This day, Jan 4, 367 years ago Isaac Newton was born.

Sir Isaac Newton was a British mathematician and scientist, focused on physics and astronomy.

He have made a lot of contributions that enable and constitute the modern theories that describe our world. He is responsible for the Newton Method, a widely used technique in the solution of systems of non-linear differential equations. He left behind the three Laws of Motion, which are the foundation of mechanics. Inevitably, by watching a falling apple, he gave rise to the Law of Universal Gravitation. Hence Google today pays tribute to his birthday with the first animated doodle. An apple falling from the apple tree… Visit the Google logo Holiday and Events archives to view the doodle (look for January 4, 2010).

We are looking forward to enjoying more clever doodles…

cleanRoar Update – Call to undefined function: filter_var – Resolved

An error was reported today in the cleanRoar back-end: when saving the cleanRoar General Options a fatal error would be given.

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: filter_var() in /path_to_options_directory/options_parent.php on line 73

This error will appear only if your host server is running a PHP version less than 5.2.0, as the function filter_var was introduced only in this PHP version.

This function is used only in the back-end, thus, it will has no effect on the front-end operation. This is found in cleanRoar up to version 9.12.19 .

If you experience this problem, you can download an updated options_parent.php from the AmberPanther repository, and replace your existing one. The file is located in /utilities/dashboard directory.
