    Yes, and you fixed it within a split of a nan-second :)
    I would like to see where all of this work is being done. You have a webcam? :) How was this done so quickly.

    Regards,

    Ron

    I do this in my home in Bowie, TX. I always review my plugins and had not realized that I had a problem until I decided to implement another plugin called Wordnik, upon which my fading mechanism broke.

    I discovered that 2 hours before your initial post. Then I went to the #wordpress channel and irc://irc.freenode.net and began inquiring as to how to make sure that jQuery libraries were isolated from each others. I knew that wp had its own and I suspected that Wordnik had its own. So I discovered what I had to encapsulate the version my plugin needs.

    2 hours on irc
    about 50 pages on the web
    and wala patch implemented.

    Also I have been a hobbyist programmer since the days of the Commodore 64 through the entire Commodore Amiga Line and well into the Windows and Linux Operating Systems. I have loads of experience. Probably too much for a simple hobbyist.

    Hi hypershock,

    Thank you for the heads up how you fixed this particular plugin, how it got resolved and presenting your short bio which I think is interesting.

    Yeah, the C64 - good for ping-pong :) and was truly the only multitasking machine with dedicated chips for different task.

    Is coding your day job? It is surprising how many good coders who have contributed great work treat coding as a hobby. They have day jobs (non coding) and come home to a family and to code. Where do they get the time to do coding, test, design, edit, test, brake stuff, research more testing, more research then a final release and family stuff? Wheeeww! Oh, and answer forum post like these. :)

    "Coding is a drug" that probably sums it up best.

    Computing is my field, no formal degree. I have started two consumer level consulting businesses in the computer field. However, when it comes to programming that has been something I've always wanted to do professionally but never actually pursued except in the area of web programming and design.

    Thanks to the power of WordPress and its easy customizability I am able to devote time to ideas and features that I want versus having to tweak a website to match the latest glitz when a plugin does the job perfectly.

    :)
