  1. Do you have any intentions to make this 2.7.1 compatible?
    It looks a little silly having a compatibility checking plugin pointing out that it is out of date…

  2. Joss and Anthony: I’ll update the plugin’s compatibility info once 2.8 has been released. 🙂

  3. Hi there,
    I have been using your unique and excellent plugin on my blog ever since day one and am very happy about it.
    I now upgraded to wordpress3 (works great even though you say compatible to 2.8) and schanged to multisite
    My issue is that it canNOT show compatibility on mu-plugins, since they all are in one folder and there can only be one readme.txt file.
    Are you thinking of handling this someway? It would be great.
    Thank you, marikamitsos

  4. Hello again Oliver,
    Time passed and we are now on wordpress 3.1
    So….. Another idea/request

    At present when activated via “network activate” the plugin gives NO info on super-admin plugins. It does though for site-admins.
    Also, when activated for the individual sites it works fine for them BUT not for super-admins.

    I think it should be the other way around. It should give compatibility info to super-admins ONLY (and if possible to chosen admins as well).

    Anyway, just my thoughts…
    Thank you again, marikamitsos

  5. I have a large collection of plugins, and “Better Plugin Compatibility Control” improves the Admin Plugin Table in a manner that is very helpful.

    Of 550+ plugins, I have seen HTML Table problems with 3, and 2 of those are the work of Michael Fields.

    Especially his “Taxonomy Images” prints large portions the WP Extend Description and Readme.txt, between the left & right columns and in so doing blows the Plugin Table to smithereens.

    I have commented & discussed this behavior with Michael Fields on his homepage for Taxonomy Images, here:

    Our thread there is a good introduction to what has been observed.

    Thank you!

  6. Hello,

    I have noticed that the plugin “Taxonomy Images” prints a large amount of it’s Readme.txt into the WP Admin Plugins Table, upon activation of “Better Plugin Compatibility Control”.

    The author, Michael Fields, thinks maybe the back-ticks he uses in Readme.txt lead to the issue.

    He & I discussed this issue on his webpage for his plugin, here:

    I like both plugins, but am unable to have both of them installed at this time. Is this a problem that you recognize, and might be addressed?

    Thanks for your time – and the very useful plugin!

    • Hey Ted,

      looks like the readme.txt of the Plugin doesn’t have “line breaks”. When I view it on the server with Midnight Commander, it doesn’t break any line. Other readme.txt files display corrently.

      I’m not sure how Michael Fields saved the file, but it’s not saved corrently in my humble opinion.

      • Okay, just saw that Michael will be addressing the readme.txt issue in an upcoming version. 😉 I will be upping a new version of “Better Plugin Compatibility Control” anyways these days with improved parsing that I came up with while dealing with the readme.txt issue.

  7. Good morning, Oliver

    I am impressed & pleased! Thank you! 🙂

    In noting the Readme.txt formatting issue, I suspect that you may have pointed to the (a) source of scattered odd plugin behaviors, both on the WordPress Extend Plugins Repository, and on individual WordPress installations.

    I look forward to your updated version of “Better Plugin Compatibility Control”. Michael Fields also announces a pending new version of his “Taxonomy Images”. I will install these updates at their earliest availability!

    Those who are interested in Michael Fields’ series of taxonomy-related plugins (which enhance & extend one of WP’s most useful features) should note that to greater & lesser degrees, some of his other plugins have been similarly affected, and thus may also see fresh updates.

    Congratulations, Oliver! 🙂

  8. Hello Oliver,
    Thank you for the upgrade. It looks so much nicer now and it picks up every plugin with or without a readme file. Brilliant.:-)
    I use it on my multisite installations. That means that I as the superadmnin want to know the compatibility of the plugins and I don’t want the other site-admins to see the compatibility, because it is unnesessary to them. They cannot update the plugins, so I don’t think they need to know their compatibility as well.
    Right now if I network activate the plugin, all the site-admins see the compatibility, but I cannot see it on the plugins page of my network plugins. This means that I have to go to a site, check from there
    the compatibility and then come back to the super-admin plugins page (network plugins page) and act accordingly.
    Is there some way I can make the plugin to ONLY show the compatibility on the network plugins page and NOWHERE else?
    Please advise.

    • Hey marikamitsos,

      not by default. I’ll have a look at multisite compatibility, though. 🙂

    • Okay, version 1.1.1 just rolled out adding multisite support. 🙂 The compatibility data is showing up for every user with the rights to manage network plugins which you should have as a super/network admin.

  9. Excellent work Oliver. Thank you so much. Works like a charm.
    One of the most valuable and unique plugins for every site owner/administrator for both simple and multisite installations on WordPress.
    Thank you, thank you and thank you again!!!!

  10. Hello Oliver,

    I installed the 2 recent upgrades consecutively. The first upgrade cleaned up the last couple minor formatting issues that appeared with a couple plugins. The new location of the version-information with the Description is very good.

    With a long/large plugin table like I have, it is noticeable that the Description column cells usually have much more content than the Plugin title & controls column cells, and thus take up more height … because the 2 columns are near the same width.

    I have thought to look into modifying the widths of these columns, so their heights average about the same. That will make the Plugins Table more compact. It would be nice to have an interface to allow settings-controls for that, and maybe other parts of the table (font size).

    Are you aware of such a thing already having been done? A plugin that allows this control? I would likely use your plugin as a guide.

    • Havn’t heard of a plugin for that. There are built-in options for the plugins page, though. Just click “Screen options” on the upper right of the plugin page which opens the page options where you can hide the plugin description. Maybe that helps?

  11. Ah, yes, that’s a help alright! I didn’t know that control was there… 🙂

    And that should be another good way to investigat how the Plugins Table is managed.

  12. Hi Oliver,

    love your plugin, I use it on a big multisite install with 100+ plugins and 40 blogs. But I have to oppose the opinion of Ted, I would like to show the normal blog admins the compatibility info as well. I do not have the time to check all the plugins with every wp-update, as I admin that site in my spare time for our artist collective. And should they have troubles with their blogs, that compatibility info could be a hint for them what could be the reason.
    Maybe you could make an option page where you could configure the needed capability to see your plugin output?

    Best wishes,

    • Thomas, for the time being, you could just install an earlier version of the plugin where it should be like you want it to be. 😉

      I’ll have a look at it.

  13. Hello,

    I love using this plugin on my blog, it really gives that neat overview of what plugins to look out for that may not work on the blog.


  14. Hi
    Have tested your plugin but I don’t get any version presented in the list over all my installed plugin. I run the latest version of WordPress so I assume its only works for earlier version of WP?

  15. Have issue again after I upgraded WP to version 3.4 I dont get your plugin to work even if I clear all cache. Have tested in IE, Firefox, Chrome but no version check seems to appear. Can you check if your plugin must be upgraded to support WP 3.4?


      • Thanks for letting me know… was just about to dig into the issue. Instead, I’ll have a sun bath now. 😉

  19. Condenser Microphones – Everything You Need To Know Condenser Mic’s: The Brief History The first high quality wide range condenser microphone was developed by E.E Wente at Bell in the early 1900’s. Condenser means capacitor, an electronic component which stores energy in the form of an electrostatic field. The microphone uses a capacitor to convert acoustical energy into electrical energy. The condenser microphone is more commonly found in recording studios, due to its great vocal recording quality which isn’t usually found in any other type of microphone. Due to the fact that they used to be the most expensive microphones on the market, condenser microphones weren’t often used for recording music in home recording studios. But now, due to companies like Editors Keys and Rode making affordable recording equipment, condenser microphones are a lot more accessible to everybody, no matter what budget or quality of recording studio you have, whether it be a professional studio or a home studio. Don’t be fooled into thinking that paying hundreds or even thousands of pounds is what you need to do to get the best quality condenser microphone. There are some excellent microphones out there, for example the Editors Keys SL600 which is under ï¿¡150, gives you the same quality of recording as microphones worth well thousands of dollars. What Makes a Good Condenser? There are many factors to look at when dealing with condensers to make sure you get the best for your budget. Look for a mic with a large diaphragm; anything above 20mm will help towards good vocals. A hyper cardioid pattern and gold diaphragm condenser are all things too look out for in addition to a good frequency response rate between 2018,000hz is perfect for home recording. The Present Day Home Recording Up until recently, condensers were only available with an XLR connection, making recording more difficult for home users, with out use of additional sound cards and adapters. Condenser mics are now are available with a USB connection and built in sound card, allowing you to get perfect studio quality sound straight into your computer. Many people are confused about the differences between condenser microphone and dynamic microphones. Condenser microphones have a flatter frequency than that of dynamic microphones, which makes them more suited to recording vocals and instruments as they are more sensitive, as opposed to dynamic microphones which are less sensitive and mainly used for live performances. Condenser microphones are quite fragile and accidents like dropping them or screaming into it can cause permanent damage be gentle with it. Ningbo Tongxin Microphones offers the best variety of quality Condenser Microphone for Studio, Podcast, USB, Instrumen, Conference, Broadcast and Field Recording.

  21. Popular Children’s Cartoons Cartoons and children are synonymous across many generations. The funny faces, vivid colors and imaginative scenarios of classic and modern cartoon shows make old and new fans laugh with delight, cry with sadness and learn with happiness together with the main characters. SpongeBob SquarePants If you are to name one anthropomorphic character that continues to conquer the highly competitive world of cartoons, then it has to be SpongeBob and his friends Patrick, Mr. Krabs, Plankton and Squidward as well as all the other residents of Bikini Bottom. SpongeBob is an extremely optimistic, energetic and hardworking sponge with a childlike appreciation for the things around him. His friends either share his sunny attitude like his best friend Patrick or disdain him for it like Squidward, which are explored in various situations that often border on the absurd. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Yet another anthropomorphic cartoon characters are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which consist of four ninjas, namely, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello. These ninjas were trained by their equally anthropomorphic rat sensei known as Splinter to fight the evil elements of this world, often with Shredder at their head. Although the ninjas protect society, they are isolated from it with only April and Casey as their constant contacts with the outside world. Looney Tunesvar CasaleArgs new Object;CasaleArgs.version 2;CasaleArgs.adUnits “6,4”;CasaleArgs.casaleID 129019; The term Looney Tunes refer to the animated cartoon series with many of its characters going on to become stars in their own right. Since 1930, cartoon characters like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Elmer Fudd, Tweety, Sylvester, Taz, Marvin the Martian, Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner, Yosemite Sam, Foghorn Leghorn, Pepé Le Pew and Speedy Gonzales, to name a few, continues to delight audiences from the kids to their parents. The situations where the characters find themselves in involve plenty of visual gags, many of which are throwbacks to the first cartoons with a few tweaks to account for new technology. The Smurfs Once upon a time, the kids’ world was blue thanks to the Smurfs. The storylines draw in the children with tales of bold adventure marked by friendship, loyalty and courage, never mind if the adventure occurred in the backyard. Kids can also identify with the Smurfs through names like Brainy Smurf, Lazy Smurf, Grouchy Smurf, Handy Smurf and, of course, Papa Smurf and Smurfette. Pokémon As proof of the everincreasing popularity of Japanese anime, Pokemon exploded into the world with merchandise of everything from trading cards to the television series. It tells the story of Ash and his friends along with a variety of pocket monsters thus, the name pokemon, a combination of pocket and monsters on an adventure to different lands. Tom and Jerry Beloved by kids and adults alike, the Tom and Jerry series centers on the almost neverending rivalry of a cat named Tom and a brown mouse named Jerry. Their chases, confrontations and battles are often laced with comic violence although, as cartoon shows go, nobody dies in the process. It is rare to see Tom and Jerry become allies since something is always at stake.
