Zone Manager (Zoninator)

    After the update on a couple of installation I found that I lost my impagination: posts weren't showing up.
    That was because I was using
    $posts = z_get_posts_in_zone('example');
    but this new 0.4 prepend 'zone' to the slug of the zone.
    So I changed 'example' to 'zone-example' and it worked again.

    I suggest that you write that on the changelog.

    Thanks for your plugin,

    Seriously dude, this change was a huge mistake on your part, and you owe your users an apology.

    One of the people who edits my college newspaper just called me with his hair on fire, yelling at me because "OMG FUCK EVERYTHING IS BROKEN", because you made a breaking change in this plugin without warning and the rest of the staff doesn't have the skill to investigate, not that they should have had to investigate at all.

    Casually changing things that causes sites to break is what causes people to abandon open source software. I fought my university for a year and a half to get them to switch to WordPress, and this is exactly the kind of thing that can erase that progress.

    AGREED. One of my clients is a news organization and the use of the Zone Manager plugin is a major part of all category templates. Adding a specific slug name (zone-) should have been a part of the initial release, NOT after three updates.

    Luckily I only updated the plugin on the staging site first.
