Support » Plugin: Subtitles » Compatibility with 5.0

  • 5.0 introduces some drastic UI changes in the admin. The subtitle field no longer shows up by default. Will this plugin be updated to support that version?

    Hi there,

    Planning on it. I’m juggling a pregnancy with Christmas prep so I don’t expect to have a 5.0 release out until the first week of January.

    Cheers,
    Philip

    I installed this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-subtitle/ (you have to deactivate this plugin)

    Then ran the following query — UPDATE wp_postmeta wp SET meta_key = ‘wps_subtitle’ WHERE wp.meta_key = ‘_subtitle’

    This transitions all your current subtitles to the new plugin.

    Nice. Thanks for the heads up.

    That other plugin (in your response) doesn’t do the trick for me. Please… iff you have the time please update your plugin for the new WP editor

    Hi the solution suggested by @ezoic did not work for me either.

    Subtitles was great, so I would also love to see it working again in WP 5.03 🙂

    However, I need to post today, so will have to find an alternative plugin I suppose. Anyone here found one they like?

    Hi again Philip,

    Also for this update, please take a look at what Subtitles is doing to the WP Comments area:
    – It appears to be causing it to interpret the title HTML as raw text.
    – It shows both the title and subtitle, instead of just the title.

    When Subtitles is deactivated, these things revert to normal.

    Example

    …with Subtitles active this displays as…

    2 thoughts on “<span class=”entry-title-primary”>Bell’s Theorem Blues</span> <span class=”entry-subtitle”>If we’re all so connected baby, how come I feel so alone? *</span>”

    Thanks so much for your work on this.

    Unfortunately my clients didn’t want to wait longer so they too wanted to switch to “WP Subtitle”.

    As a exercise I wrote a plugin for the move:
    https://github.com/ibes/subtitles-to-wp-subtitle

    In the end, it is just a very extensive wrap around:

    UPDATE YOUR_PREFIX_postmeta SET meta_key = 'wps_subtitle' WHERE meta_key = '_subtitle'

    Sounds like you all are finding workarounds for this until a proper update is rolled out. Sorry for the delay. Lunar New Year + pregnant wife = little time.

    I assume a good number of you will migrate over to other plugins, which I actually suggest, but I’ll update this thread when the new update has shipped to close the loop on this.

    Cheers,
    Philip

    @philiparthurmoore Thank you for the update and all the best to your growing family (congrats!). I just had WPEngine roll back my WP install so your plugin still works 🙂

    We will likely be migrating also. In case this helps others:

    The plugin provided by @ib4s got us halfway to functional subtitles – we encountered problems where calls to the_subtitle(); inside loop.php were not displaying the subtitle. We solved this issue by calling directly for the meta properties: get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), 'wps_subtitle');.

    @philiparthurmoore
    great that you prioritise family.
    In reality, that is far more important than subtitles.

    If I would already be educated what Gutenberg needs to have Subtitles work with it, I would have given you a hand to make it compatible.

    All the best.

    @ib4s Thanks so much for your understanding.

    Things like this only come around once in a lifetime. 🙂

    Hello,
    Migrated to wp-subtitle succesfully I think with @ib4s plugin, but the subtitles aren’t displayed automatically.Should they?
    Am I facing the same problem as @altferguson ?

    we encountered problems where calls to the_subtitle(); inside loop.php were not displaying the subtitle. We solved this issue by calling directly for the meta properties: get_post_meta(get_the_ID(), ‘wps_subtitle’);

    I don’t know where to put this code….
    Somebody?

    The both plugins do the same job but in different ways.
    Both have a ”the_subtitle” function but with different implementations.

    I thought about making both compatible but than just solved it for my customer.

    All together you are right that there needs to be some modification on the templates.
    As far as I remember it did not seem to be possible to just write an ”adapter” eg overwrite the function call of one plugin to act like the other. But as said I did not put big effort in it.

    Maybe people who went that way can try to document their process.
