Genesis Widgetized Not Found & 404

Finally, use widgets to maintain and customize your 404 Error and Search Not Found pages in Genesis Framework and Child Themes.

1.5.0 (2013-05-29)

  • NEW: Added Widget "Genesis - Search Form" - more customizeable than the built-in WordPress core widget (change Search text, Submit text, display options etc.).
  • NEW: Added Shortcode [gwnf-search] for displaying a configurable search for anywhere you like :) -- conditionally with full support for HTMTL5 & Genesis 2.0.0+ if in use.
  • NEW: Added Shortcode [gwnf-widget-area] for displaying any of the plugin's 3 Widget areas (if active) into Shortcode aware content areas.
  • NEW: Added support for bbPress 2.3+ forum plugin: Added widgetized content area for the "No results" state of the bbPress Forum search - now you can easily customize this "edge case" with well-known and proved regular WordPress tools (that are Widgets!).
  • UPDATE: All markup output by the plugin is now fully compatible with Genesis 2.0+, that means for HTML5 if the child theme supports it (is done all automatically & conditionally under the surface!).
  • UPDATE: Additional stylesheet now uses the WordPress convention for file names: gwnf-styles.min.css (gwnf-html5-styles.min.css) is the minified default version, plus, gwnf-styles.css (gwnf-html5-styles.css) is now the development version. If WP_DEBUG or SCRIPT_DEBUG constants are true, the dev styles will be loaded. This makes development/ customizing & debugging a lot easier! :)
  • UPDATE: Improved versioning of stylesheet, also in light of above update :).
  • UPDATE: All frontent relevant code is now moved into the plugin's frontend file and only then loaded!
  • CODE: Some code optimizations, plus code/documentation updates & improvements.
  • UPDATE: Added a few new screenshots.
  • UPDATE: Updated readme.txt file here.
  • UPDATE: Updated German translations and also the .pot file for all translators.
  • NEW: Added partly Spanish translations, user-submitted.

1.4.0 (2012-12-15)

  • Maintenance release
  • UPDATE: Added the class placeholder to widget registrations to fullfill WordPress standard for Widgets API.
  • NEW: Added constant for disabling the widget shortcode support (see FAQ here).
  • CODE: Some code/documentation updates & improvements.
  • UPDATE: Updated readme.txt file here.
  • UPDATE: Initiated new three digits versioning, starting with this version.
  • UPDATE: Updated German translations and also the .pot file for all translators.
  • UPDATE: Moved screenshots to 'assets' folder in WP.org SVN to reduce plugin package size.

1.3.0 (2012-08-20)

  • Maintenance release
  • NEW: Added help tab also on Genesis settings page.
  • NEW: Compressed CSS file for improved performance (the development file has now the file name gwnf-styles.dev.css and is still packaged).
  • CODE: Minor code/documentation updates & improvements.
  • UPDATE: Updated German translations and also the .pot file for all translators.
  • UPDATE: Extended GPL License info in readme.txt as well as main plugin file.
  • NEW: Easy plugin translation platform with GlotPress tool: Translate "Genesis Widgetized Not Found & 404"...

1.2.0 (2012-04-27)

  • NEW: Added little help tab on Widget admin page for better user experience. (Works only with WordPress 3.3 or higher!)
  • UPDATE: Moved plugin links from main file to extra admin file which only loads within 'wp-admin', this way it's performance-improved! This also effects the new help tab stuff :).
  • UPDAGE: Added action hook gwnf_load_styles if you ever need to properly enqueue your own stylesheet for the edge cases... (Also see FAQ here).
  • CODE: Minor code/documentation tweaks and improvements.
  • UPDATE: Extended and improved readme.txt file documentation here, corrected typos.
  • UPDATE: Updated German translations and also the .pot file for all translators.

1.1.0 (2012-04-23)

  • NEW: Added two helper functions (via child theme) for applying the Genesis 'Full-Width' layout option for one or both 'not found' cases! This is very handy for lots of use cases... -- See the FAQ section for more info on that!
  • UPDATE: Placed widget display in conditionals only for the "404" or the "Search not found" case to avoid overlaying of more than one 'no content messages'. This should finally cover more edge cases...
  • UPDATE: Improved translations loading, especially for activation (messages).
  • UPDATE: Improved registering of widget areas/sidebars: switching back to Genesis register function, but now properly wrapped in a conditional, checking for activated Genesis. This way we also get further improved Multisite support!
  • UPDATE: Improved CSS styling, handling the limition of the empty "p" (left over from the original "no content status" of Genesis).
  • UPDATE: Updated German translations and also the .pot file for all translators.

1.0.1 (2012-04-20)

  • Bugfix release. Mmh, stuff happens...
  • UPDATE: Changed widget registering from Genesis to WordPress function (it doesn't matter in the end!)
  • BUGFIX: Fixed function typo that was causing notices on plugin activation.
  • UPDATE: Minor code documentation updates. Also, minor updates to readme.txt file here.
  • UPDATE: Updated German translations and also the .pot file for all translators.
