  • Resolved RobSay


    Hi Toby – thanks for this plugin – very simple and effective.

    I’ve got an interesting little niggle for you tho’ – not a showstopper by any means..

    When working with a draft post with PDF links in I view the post and the icons are not displayed. No errors, anchor element picks up two new mlti classes. I checked to see if it was the theme by switching to asynchronous but this replaced the hyperlink with no file information.

    When I publish file all is well and the icons work fine in synchronous and asynchrounous modes

  • Hi just – been doing some double-checking and it’s a bit more importnat than I thought.

    Icons show in post list pages (blog/tag/category) but aren’t shown on full post pages.

    Compare most recent article (icon shown) on June archive:
    with full page view of article ( no icon):

    Glad you like the plugin and sorry about the problems you are experiencing.

    The CSS gets called from the content hook, which is fine for both scenarios. What I imagine is that the social media plugin is messing with it.

    Can you turn off that plugin and confirm this for me?

    If this is the case, I can add the CSS to the top of the page in the get_header hook when the async functionality is turned on, or there may be another global solution that I can work on…

    Hi Toby – no change there with social media plugin turned off.

    Only other active plugin is audioplayer ( and that doesn’t change behaviour either

    Hmm, weird

    OK – I’ll do a few tests and try to release a new version early next week. I suspect there is a plugin conflict problem somewhere along the way, so I should make the plugin more independent.

    Speak soon

    @robsay – can you try this?

    take this file –

    unzip it. Replace your current

    /wp-content/plugins/mimetypes-link-icons/mime_type_link_images.php file with the one in this folder?

    Let me know how you get on…

    That does the trick – nice. Checked on:

    • Blog
    • Single Post view
    • Category & Tag lists
    • Draft & Preview changes

    File size looks like it’s sorted as well.

    looks good to go.

    Great – This will be part of 2.0, which will include adding filesizes to the link with CSS.

    ie instead of

    {icon here} the text of your hyperlink here

    It will now read:

    {icon here} the text of your hyperlink here (2.7Mb)

    I’ll release it tomorrow. Need to test a few thing before the launch

    @robsay – this is now released as part of 2.0.0

    Should be available in the next couple of hours

    Installed and working – thanks for the swift turnaround.
