Is WordPress 2.1 Naughty or Nice?

28Dec06
Wordpress 2.1

As you maybe already noticed in the article at wodpress.org from Aaron Brazell, the plugin developers are encouraged to update their plugings. So I start and install WordPress 2.1a3 and trapped direct into the biggest upcomming problem for plugin developers: The visual editor (TinyMCE) is updated and didn’t support anymore a Button integration in the old way (with buttonsnap.php).

I said to myself : Ok, no problem let’s have a look in the WP Codex pages for the new function description, but for my own suprise : There is simply no documentation or link on :-(

After I google through the web I found only two plugins which are at the moment able to handle a button integration (Anarchy Media Player and Viper’s Video Quicktag). I need now to do it by hand in the same way , but I’m real unhappy about this fact.

Hope the WordPress developers remind this gap until they release WP 2.1…
Otherwise I must ask :

Is WordPress 2.1 Naughty or Nice?

UPDATE 20.01.2007 :

Today I finished a short description, for a work around the button problem. See this post

    I must say : Horrible and again horrible…

    After 6(!) hours I got working the new wordTube button under WordPress 2.1 TinyMCE editor. It’s now ok, but not what I like to publish. I will start maybe later to rebuild buttonsnap.php for WordPress 2.1 , but I feel my programming knowledge are really not enough for that…

    Did you report this as an issue on Trac?

    No not now, I’m not a skilled programmer, so I only ask some people in the wordpress support for help. As you can see I find a solution by study two plugins…

    The codex documentation must be updated before 2.1 get released,
    otherwise other plugins get problems
