The WP-SeedBank plugin turns any self-hosted WordPress blog into a community seedbank (or seed library). :D

Version 0.4.4

  • Bugfix: Correct typo in Scientific Name for parsley.
  • Enhancement: Add Scientific Name for chives and bitter melon.
    • If you don't already have these in your system but would like to add them from the built-in set provided by this plugin, go to your Plugin Administration Screen and de-activate this plugin, then reactive it.

Version 0.4.3

  • Feature: "My Seeds" link takes you to a filtered view of all Seed Exchange Posts.
  • Translations for Hindi (hi_IN) are now available.
  • Updated translations for Swedish and Italian.

Version 0.4.2

  • Feature: Add a new common name directly from the Seed Exchange Details box. Simply type the common name you're posting about and, if it already exists, it will automatically be filled in. If it doesn't exist, saving your post will add it to the list of available common names.
  • Feature: Seed Exchanges listing page now has additional columns that allow you to filter and sort your view of the seed exchange postings.
  • Feature: Admins can now edit the inventory units just like they can with the other fields such as Common Name.

Version 0.4.1

  • Feature: Taxonomies for Seed Exchange Details are now linked when they are displayed.
  • Bugfix: Correctly load image and JavaScript assets on PHP 5.2.x installs.
  • Translations for Swedish (sv_SE) and Italian (it_IT) are now available.

Version 0.4

  • Feature: The "Seed Genera" taxonomy has been completely removed, and replaced with a "Scientific Names" taxonomy.
    • The "Add Seed Exchange" screen now has a "Scientific Names" selection box where you can select the scientific name for the kind of seed you're making a post about. The scientific names are organized according to their hierarchical biological classification: Genus, then species, then subspecies or variety or cultivar Group. Unlike built-in WordPress categories, the user interface for selecting a scientific name only allows you to choose one per post.
    • This update will delete all "Seed Genera" tags. If you are using the "Seed Genera" taxonomy, you will need to reapply the genera you've entered in the new Scientific Names taxonomy.
  • Feature: Cleaner editing interface; meta boxes that duplicated "Seed Exchange Details" fields have been removed.
  • Bugfix: Exchange expiry date is now required. Leaving this blank caused your exchange post to be "Deleted" immediately.
  • Bugfix: Perform database migration from very old 0.2.x versions.

Version 0.3

  • Complete internal rewrite to improve code quality, security, and maintainability.
  • Bugfix: Seed Exchange posts are now correctly linked to their respective category pages.
  • Feature: Seed Exchange posts can now be composed in "visual" (WYSIWYG) mode.
  • Feature: Show information entered into the Seed Exchange Details box on the post itself, without needing to write your own template. If not already active on your website, go to WordPress's "Settings -> Reading" screen, and choose whether to position the details above or below the post content in the new "Seedbank Settings" section.
  • Feature: Contextual help offers step-by-step instructions for use. Click the "Help" button on any SeedBank page for help with that page.

Version 0.2.3

  • Simpler seed exchange editing screen for typical users.
  • Manage comments (public replies to seed exchange posts) on the post edit screen itself.
  • Allow admins to reassign seed exchange author.
  • Seed exchange posts can now be viewed as their own archive category.
