Featured Post Widget
[resolved] Widgets crash in IE (5 posts)

    I updated WordPress to 3.3. I then began to reactivate the plugins. When I try to drag and drop the Featured Post Widget to a sidebar, it won't drag and it automatically produces 6 more Featured Post widgets within the Available Widgets list.

    The problem does not occur in Firefox browser.

    Hello again Richard,

    I have heard about that problem and am investigating at the moment. Unfortunately, I don't have the possibility to check it in IE, but there should be help.

    I am writing an update at the moment and would be thankful, if you could tell, whether the problem still exists after that.

    Greetings,
    Stefan

    Hi Stephan,

    I updated one of my sites with your newest version (3.1). No change though. But, I have a lot of plugins on that site and the hang-up might be due to some sort of incompatibility with something. Anyway, thought you should have at least one report.

    BTW, I'm wondering if there's a better way of styling the article's title. Currently you have this tag:

    <p <?php if ($instance['class']) echo ' class="'.$instance['myclass'].'"'; ?>>
           <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
           </p>

    So, I've been editing it like so, so I can have some control over the title style:

    <p class="postTitle"<?php if ($instance['class']) echo ' class="'.$instance['myclass'].'"'; ?>>
           <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
           </p>

    Hi Richard,

    thanks for the reply. I still wonder, how I could get rid of that incompability. But anyway, I implemented the field for the class because not every theme has that particular class "postTitle". If it is always there, the plugin might mess up with some defined css selectors.So, if you just put "postTitle" every time, you place the widget, and I put "headline", we both are fine with what the widget shows. If you want to hardcode it, you should also write it that way

    <p class="postTitle<?php if ($instance['class']) echo ' '.$instance['myclass']; ?>">
           <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a>
           </p>

    Cheers again

    Hi Richard,

    new version of the plugin is on the way. Hopefully without that bug.

    I'll send it to you when it's ready.

    Cheers
