    Update... I know bradparbs is working on fixing this plugin, but I forgot to tell my coder and he started working on developing a plugin for text resizing.

    As I was looking at the text resizing plugins that are already publishes, I came across Zoom (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/zoom-widget/). Have any of you tired this one? Does it do what you need? Are there things it does not do you would want it to? I just don't want to spend time on something that is redundant.

    I installed it using the Plugin search and download and it won't activate. I tried it on two different WP sites and got the same results.

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/mysite/public_html/mysite.com/site/wp-content/plugins/wptextresizecontrols/init.php on line 42

    Yes it did install this time :D

    But I'm having some problems with it... See this test page: http://screwusandwemultiply.net/test/ I have a Nivo slider on this page and all that is on the page is the following two shortcodes:

    [wpResize]
    
     
    
    [nivoslider slug="dorli-images"]

    Your resizer is wrapping around Nivo. When I remove Nivo, the resizer is by itself but when I click, nothing happens.

    Additionally, I have tried the shortcode in a text widget and the resizer does not display in the sidebar.

    You have it "float:right" which I think is why it is moving things around on the page.

    I pushed an update to fix the div wrapping and float problems. I'm not 100% why the controls aren't resizing, it looks like the javascript isnt being found, which means it may not installed correctly. I'd say try again with the update I just pushed, and hope for the best!

    I reinstalled. You can see the results. Clicking buttons still doesn't work. Text widget still doesn't display. http://screwusandwemultiply.net/test/

    I'm going to close down for the night. I'll help you more tomorrow.

    And hey... Thanks so much for doing this! My coder and I have been working on ours but it's not calling the js properly. Between the two of us, one of us will get this working!! lol

    You shouldn't have to. Do you have a link to your site I could look at?

    I'm going to look into the issue. I can't seem to replicate it, it works on all my testing sites. :(

    Your part way there... I just installed the newest version 1.4 and it is now working when placed in the body of a post: http://screwusandwemultiply.net/test/

    Two things I think you should change:

    (1) When hovering over the "A"s the cursor does not change to a hand so it looks like there's something wrong even though it's working.

    (2) It is not working when put in the sidebar text widget. I suggest either giving it a widget or giving instructions on how to add shortcodes to sidebar (php widget and code) and templates.

    Updated to have both of those features! 1.5 should be available momentarily.

    Wow. That's cool! Especially considering that having a sidebar widget and a post shortcode on the same page doesn't interfere with each other!

    Now, two more tweaks at it will be prefect...

    (1) The CSS that controls the look is does a inline style. This needs to be moved to a css file so it can be easily overwritten so we can change the look easily.

    (2) If you go to my test page, http://screwusandwemultiply.net/test/ and reload the page to make sure you start fresh. Notice the size of the tagline in the header: "Courage and grace under fire: A tribute to Dorli Rainey". Now,try the resizer up or down, then hit the resizer middle letter which should take the text back to normal size. You'll see that the tagline is larger than before using the resizer.

    You are real close! Doing a good job :D

    trishahdee - both of those are planned for the next version, which might take a tiny bit longer than these updates did

    bitweb - what version of WordPress are you running?

    3.4.1

    3.4.1

    The version of our textResizer that my coder and I were working on has a section in the Admin that allows you to choose which id's or selectors you want the resizing applied to. This way if you don't want the header to be resized it doesn't.

    Maybe we can collaborate and bring the two together? My coder is MIA at the moment so I don't know if he will have time to work on it with you, but I'd be willing to show you the code we have thus far. Contact me if you want to explore this: [ redacted, support is offered via the forums and not email ]
