Cricket Moods 3.3

This release will hopefully fix any remaining issues people might still be having with their mood lists. Changes follow:

  • Dirty fix for people still having issues (maybe?).
  • Added buttons to reset both personal and the global mood lists.
  • Added buttons to strip moods from per-user and all-user posts.
  • Added an option to specify whether the moods should be placed above or below the content.

If you’re still having problems with the issues I’ve mentioned previously, chances are your personal list of moods is gone/hosed/kaput. I don’t know how it may have happened since I haven’t been able to reproduce the disappearing moods behavior myself. The best thing for you to do would be to reset your personal list of moods using the newly added button on the bottom of the Manage » Moods panel.

    Is there any possibility in the future for a customize mood display formating feature? Like it’s own loop? ‘Love the plugin, by the way. It was finally what I was looking for.

    Customized? Why yes, actually. As documented in the readme and the Wiki page you may use the following function to customize the output of your moods:

    <?php cm_the_moods('separator', 'before', 'after'); ?>

    If you need something more than that, you can always copy that function from my plugin, customize it a bit, give it a new name (like cm_my_moods), and place it in a new “plugin”. You could then call that new function instead of cm_the_moods().

    I used to use this wonderful mod on my blog. I recently moved the whole thing to a new domain and at the same time moved to WP2.1

    I expected a few issues when I moved and therefore used the strip all moods facility.

    Now when I select a mood it is displayed twice.

    eg. Current Mood: Happy & Happy

    Any ideas or pointers please?

    You could just deactivate the option “automatically print moods” and use cm_the_moods() – or the other way round. I assume that you have (had, as I don’t see any moods on yourpage currently) both activated…

    Hi…sorry to be a bother, but I have two clients who use Cricket Moods that are having problems, and I am unable to find a solution to their problems. One pre-dates her posts the night before, and the moods do not show up on her post-dated post. She has to manually go in the next day and readd the moods. She didn’t have this problem until she upgraded to WordPress 2.1.2, and the second is just a regular site that anytime someone responds to her post the moods disappear. Any idea as to what can be causing disappearing moods? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Wow, okay, that was a big issue that I was not aware of. I have made some changes, and my initial testing suggests that I have fixed it.

    Please be my guinea pig and try this version to see if everything is hunky-dory:

    Hard to believe that you’re the first person to report this issue, since it should affect anyone using 2.1.x.

    Thanks a bunch!

    I have just started a blog of my own, and I am using your plugin, excellent by the way. :) This is not my first time using your pluggin, I have used it before many times, but sometimes it gives me problems. Before with other blogs, the image I have selected for the mood does not appear, and today the same problem has occured, after I posted the mood, it worked for about ten minutes, then the image disappeared, you can see my blog with the website I’ve provided.

    Wish you can help! :)
