I’m proud to announce the beta of IPBWI for WordPress 3.3.0 coming with a brand new feature: load widgets from WordPress into IP.board smooth and easy. It’s like magic. You have to try it out!
First note: It’s a beta. there actually ARE known and unknown bugs. Please never use beta software on live machines and always make backups.
Please update all files via FTP and make sure first deinstalling old IPBWI application in IP.board before installing new one in IP.board.
After the plugin is installed via Applications Manager in IP.board, you’ll need to check IPBWI settings in IP.board Admin Panel -> System Settings first: a valid rootpath set in Path to WordPress to your WordPress installation is required to get the WordPress widgets loading into IP.board.
You can forget the other settings at this moment as they are not relevant if you don’t want to use Smooth Single Sign on with IPBWI for WordPress.
After this step, you can start throwing WordPress widgets to IP.board. Just go to WordPress Admin Panel -> Appearance -> Widgets. You’ll see a new sidebar on the right site named IPBWI Sidebar in IP.board. Drag & Drop your selected widgets to this sidebar and they’ll appear instantly in your IP.board’s sidebar.
If you want to adjust the title of the sidebar, you’ll find a language file after installation on FTP:
If you want to adjust style of the sidebar, you’ll find a CSS snippet after installation on IP.board -> Admin CP -> Look & Feel -> Manage Skin Sets & Templates -> %YOUR_SKIN% -> Manage Templates & CSS -> CSS -> ipbwi_for_wordpress_sidebar.css
WordPress Network (MultiSite) activated redirects user from board index to WordPress home. Please try out the beta with deactivated WordPress Network feature. I’m currently investigating for a solution of this issue.
That’s all :)
If you find any bugs, please report them and I’ll fix them rapidly. It would be great to get information about working/nonworking widgets, too. All feedback is very welcome. If you like this new feature, you shouldn’t pass the chance to become a fan on Facebook or a follower on Twitter. You’ll be informed about updates automaticly.
