4.3 2013-04-05

  • Big thanks to FrŽdŽric Bolduc for pointing out that jQuery was being added twice, once from the Google CDN, then again the local version, because I had !window.jQuery || ... instead of window.jQuery || ... Doh!
  • And speaking of jQuery, updated the local version to 1.9.1.
  • Finally figured out how Screenshots work, so... whew-hew!
  • Full verison update is due again, I guess, hopefully soon!

4.2 2013-01-12

  • Tested & verified in WP 3.5

4.1 2012-11-14

  • Fixed an issue where the html5shiv.js was getting applied to a page 2-3 times in IE < 9... erps!

4.0 2012-09-28

NOTE: I find myelf at a very troublesome crossroads with the good folks of HTM5Boilerplate project... With the release of their 4.0, they have greatly changed a number of structure items, such as directory and file names that will work just fine for their project, because it is intended as a starting point for new projects, but is somewhat problematic for things like WP Themes & Plugins, as they tend to serve initially as starting points, but then quickly become something that must be updatable, and therefore be backwards-compatible... And splitting /css/style.css into /css/normalize.css and /css/main.css could cause issues for developers already using a Theme/Plugin. So, in the interest of my users, I am staying with the old directory and file names, regardless of the additional work this will cause me. I hope this doesn't confuse anyone...

  • Updated jQuery to 1.8.2
  • Updated Modernizr to 2.6.2
  • Updated /css/style-starter.css to latest HTML5 Boilerplate version (combination of /css/normalize.css and /css/main.css)
  • Updated /js/plugins.js to latest HTML5 Boilerplate version
  • Updated /js/respond.js to latest version: https://github.com/scottjehl/respond (keeping this separate from Modernizr, as you might only want one)
  • Updated /js/ieshiv.js to latest version: https://raw.github.com/aFarkas/html5shiv
  • Added /js/plugins-starter.js file to prevent overwrites during Theme upgrades
  • Added ability to force custom site-specific JS into the &lt;head&gt; instead of before the &lt;/body&gt;
  • Added &lt;link rel="apple-touch-icon" sizes="144x144" href="/apple-touch-icon-144x144.png"&gt; option
  • Added /doc directory from latest HTML5 Boilerplate version
  • Added readme.md from latest HTML5 Boilerplate version
  • Added "Check All | Uncheck All" links to top of BP Admin form
  • Reordered apple-touch-icon links per H5BP docs; thanks once again, Micah!


Oof! Sloppy programming on my part, neglected to name-space functions, which was causing conflicts with other plug-ins... Not any more, all functions & plugin_options names now begin H5BP_... Sorry to all, and special thanks to outlierdesign and waldbach for bringing this up in the WP Forum...


I hate SVN some times...


2012-02-24: * Converted ... /> to ...> for all the stuff this plug-in writes to the page. * Updated /css/style-starter.css to latest HTML5 Boilerplate version. * Updated jQuery to 1.7.1. * Updated Modernizr to 2.5.3, Custom Build. * Added 57x57 iThing favicon link. * Fixed Bug introduced by WP 3.3+ that causes jQuery to be loaded after site-specific JS.


2011-06-09: Was still calling jQuery 1.5.1, erps! Not only fixed that, but now allow users to enter version number, so they can upgrade when they want. Thanks, Micah. Line 522 had the wrong function comment. Thanks, Micah. Added option of putting jQuery/plug-ins in the <head> to make it more compatible with more plugins. Thanks, Micah. Fixed ob_end_flush() issues with some themes. Thanks, Chris! Improved DOCTYPE, <html> and <head> filtering to cover various versions.


2011-06-09: Attempting to fix a few odd text appearances.


2011-06-01: Bumping-up revisions a whole knotch, as quite a few changes here... * Fixed typo on Admin panel (removing trailing / in HTML5 doctype), thanks @paul_irish. * Per Paul & Divya recommendations: - Dropping cdnjs link for Modernizr, resorting to local link only, hopefully soon that will be replaced with Google CDN link. - Removed handheld.css, because "our research has shown not enough devices read it to make it worthwhile". Additionally, if you're doing your CSS right (a la Responsive Design, you're building for smaller screens first, then adding CSS for larger screens via @media queries, right?). - Removed print.css because "extra print stylesheets are downloaded at load, so its a big hit"; this, too, is best served via @media queries in your main CSS. - Removed YUI Profiling stuff because you "probably weren't using it anyway", right? - Removed Belated PNG because it "is a really slow solution and an overkill for PNGs", check http://html5boilerplate.com/docs/#Notes-on-using-PNG for deets on dealing with PNGs in ye olde IE. * Added removal of IE6 Image Toolbar to Admin panel. * Added iPad and iPhone 4 favicon links to existing "iThing Favicon" block. * Added Respond.js option to Admin panel. * Added Google Verification option to Admin panel. * Updated /css/style-starter.css to latest HTML5 Boilerplate version. * Updated jQuery to 1.6.1. * Updated /js/plugins.js to include console.log bit.


2011-05-11: Added features to move XFN Profile link, convert Search input type to "search", add custom placeholder text, and add cache buster to all CSS/JS URLs. Phew!


2011-05-10: Forgot the / between BP_PLUGIN_URL and the rest of the URL... erps! Also did a little clean-up on how the Google Analytics gets applied. Lastly, giving the screenshots one... last... try...


2011-05-10: Finally found an article that tells me that not only do I need to update the "Stable tag" in the readme.txt and copy all the plug-in files to a new Tag folder, but also the Version in the plug-in file itself... So, hopefully this will finally get the latest plug-in into the Repository... :-)


2011-05-08: Updating jQuery version to 1.6 and hopefully fixing links on Screenshot page.


2011-04-25: Reviewing additional HTML5 Boilerplate pages, adding Google Fix URL option to HTML5 Boilerplate Admin panel.


2011-04-24: Trying to get Screenshot links working in readme.txt... May or may not work... :-)
