Support » Plugin: Tabify Edit Screen » Good Plugin, But No Support

  • The plugin works great – it was exactly what I wanted – except for one bug. I posted a message for support two months ago and the developer has not responded.

    So I’m not allowed to go on holiday, being sick, Working to get money or work on other open source projects? Receiving support for a free plugin should be considered a tremendous bonus, not something to base a review off of.

    I will look at the issue when I’m back home.

    Btw, Should have been resolved.


    Good to see an update. Appreciate it. Hope things are well man! Stay up!

    Quick questions… is the smart metabox detection to improve the metabox detection I assume?

    I ask because I quit using Tabify because I had about 4 or 5 metaboxes it didn’t work with and so it was just to much to organize settings and have some areas just not respect that organization.

    – Also, I can’t recall what this issue was that is solved now, lol. There’s no link in this thread.

    It should work now. I make a http request to the edit page of a post and request all the meta boxes and return it as JSON data.

    Hi, thanks!

    I just tried some plugins and while it works for the other ones it seems, the main one I wanted it to work for still doesn’t. But now that I think of it, I could just modify the code if you can tell me what might make it register for Tabify. Then if I have the issue in the future I can apply it, and post for others who might need the fix as well.

    Do you mind?

    Here is the way the meta box is added…

    protected function _registerMetaBoxes()
    	    	if ( $this->the_plugin->capabilities_user_has_module('on_page_optimization') ) {
    		    	//posts | pages | custom post types
    		    	$post_types = get_post_types(array(
    		    		'public'   => true
    		    	//unset media - images | videos are treated as belonging to post, pages, custom post types
    		    	unset($post_types['attachment'], $post_types['revision']);
    		    	$screens = $post_types;
    			    foreach ($screens as $key => $screen) {
    			    	$screen = str_replace("_", " ", $screen);
    					$screen = ucfirst($screen);
    			            $screen . ' - ' . __( 'SEO Settings', $this->the_plugin->localizationName ),
    			            array($this, 'display_meta_box'),
    	        return $this;

    I do cache the output in a transient. I did accidentally forgot to put an expiration of a day to it. Will fix that in an upcoming release.

    I still need to work on a way to invalidate when new meta boxes got added. Hopefully that will be soon fixed.


    I understood your first comment about requesting the JSON.

    Not sure if the last comment was to me and what I said?

    If it was, I can kind of understand that.
    – If so, could you do this sooner than later for cash?
    – Not sure how much you would charge or are available.

    Was for you.

    the 24 hour expiration was fixed in 0.9.1. The invalidation will be done in 1.0
    You can register the meta boxes on the ‘tabify_add_meta_boxes’ action and I then use __return_false as a fallback like below.

    add_meta_box( $id, $title, '__return_false', $post_type, $priority, $context );
