  1. Hi Thematicians,

    sorry for not answering as promised but WordPress v2.8 is keeping me busy.

    It seems as if WP 2.8 has a couple of issues which I'm currently investigating.

    Please stay tuned and wait for further news.

  2. The get_categories() issue is pretty weird. Works in a regular theme file, works in the functions.php used as an action hooked to a regular theme file, but doesn't work at all as soon as I'm trying to get the data out of it ..

  3. Ok .. got it .. In 2.8 the creation of default taxonomies moved into a function (create_initial_taxonomies) that is run by the "init" action hook .. that's the thing that caused my headaches.

    Knowing this, it's pretty easy to provide a fix for the Acamas Option Page.

  4. What was the next issue to be solved? .. was something 'bout jQuery .. do I need some more Aspirin or do I need a beer?? .. will decide later :-)

  5. jQuery? .. one problem occurs, if you swap the current version against a newer one. To prevent all kind of weird problems in wp-admin, you should use this code:

    function override_jquery() {
         if ( is_admin() ) // using a newer version of jQuery will break stuff in WP admin
         wp_register_script('jquery', '/path/to/your/version/of/jquery.js');
    add_action('init', 'override_jquery');

  9. The issue with the Acamas options page was caused by a bug in 2.8. This one is already fixed in the nightly build of WP 2.8.1.

    I integrated a workaround into Acamas. The backend will now work with WP 2.8.
