Plugin Updates – WP Plugin Info Card, Highlight and Share, and User Profile Picture


Over the past weekend I worked on updating some of my free plugins on the WordPress repo. Here are the changes.

WP Plugin Info Card

I added a new Gutenberg block that allows for query parameters. I also fixed an error where the query wasn’t working properly. I also added a Reset button to the blocks so you can change the values after they are entered.

Highlight and Share

I updated Highlight and Share to position the highlight popup where appropriate for desktop/mobile. It now works properly on small screens without overlapping. I also added the Cyan theme, which I’m using on this site.

Metronet Profile Picture

For those not using Gutenberg, I created a template function that allows you to mimic the Gutenberg plugin using a template tag.

Here’s some sample code:

mt_author_box( $post->post_author, array(
    'theme'              => 'tabbed',
    'profileAvatarShape' => 'round',
    'showWebsite'        => true,
    'website'            => '',
    'showSocialMedia'    => true,
    'socialMediaOptions' => 'brand',
    'socialWordPress'    => '',
    'socialFacebook'     => '',
) );Code language: PHP (php)
