I’ve gotten the new Forum Extender+ script to add messaging to the forums. This relies on a database to store messages in, so it of course means that the script is no longer self contained within that one file. This does, however, mean that most thins pertaining to messaging can be updated without the need to push a new script version to GitHub, so that you don’t have to wait for n update to the scrip to get new features for messaging.
Well, it’s here. The Extender+ script I’ve been working on that has merged with Richard’s Forum Extender is finally here. The code is fully functional, and updated. Now, rather than having two scripts, you can just have one that does everything. The new script now goes by a new, unified name – Forum Extender+. It no longer handles only Super User icons like it did all those months ago, and is finally something that can serve some purpose around the forums besides just aesthetics.
According to the WordPress blog, 3.7 beta is expected to come out later this month. Apparently, it will even update itself to the newer betas automatically.
