Update 05/11/2011: This plugin has been updated to work with WordPress 3.0 and above.
Although I like the new look of WordPress 2.5, I miss having the visited links in the dashboard shown as a different color. I like to keep up on the latest WordPress news and I previously relied on the link color to see what I had not yet read.
Fortunately, WordPress 2.5 has a way for plugins to add additional color schemes. So I whipped up a quick plugin to add the style necessary to mark those visited links in a different color. You can grab a copy from my downloads page for Admin Colors Plus Visited.
I’m looking forward to attending my first WordCamp this weekend in Dallas. I’ll be eager to learn from the great lineup of presenters, and hopefully, personally say thank you to some of you who have contributed so much to the WordPress community. Be sure to say hello if you’re attending too. I’d love to meet you.
I believe they are still taking registrations, so you may not be too late to sign up if you haven’t already.
Recent events have caused me to rethink the use of the nofollow attribute on my blog comment links. Much has already been written about whether or not to use the nofollow attribute, so I won’t re-hash those arguments here. Personally, I had come down on the side of believing that nofollow did little to stop spam. Besides, commenters add value to my sites and it’s appropriate to reward them with a link. So I’ve been running one of the DoFollow plugins for WordPress to override the default nofollow behavior.
Additional checks for plugins knowing about the new tag system so they don’t get flagged as incompatible. i.e., Sitemap Generator 3.0.
Internationalization of text. The .po file is included. If you do a translation send the files over and I’ll be happy to post them on the download page.
Miscellaneous clean up.
Added GPL license text.
Get it on the Upgrade Preflight Plugin page. (My apologies for this not being on the WordPress Extend plugins directory yet. I’ve applied for access but they apparently have quite a backlog in approving new plugins.)
