Much Ado About Nothing

Mollom 0.6.1

I just tagged version 0.6.1 of WP Mollom in the WordPress Extend repository. Which means in a few moments, you’ll be able to download the latest installment of my plugin.

So, what has changed? Well, this is a bugfix release which means no new features. Here’s the changelog:

  • Fixed: division by 0 error on line 317
  • Fixed: if ‘unsure’ but captcha was filled in correctly, HTML attributes in comment content would sometimes be eaten by kses
  • Improved: the mollom function got an overhaul to reflect the september 15 version of the Mollom API documentation
  • Changed: mollom statistics are now hooked in edit-comments.php instead of plugins.php
  • Added: _mollom_retrieve_server_list() function now handles all getServerList calls

Although almost all basic functions are up and running now, there’s still a long road ahead. Today, I’m happy with what I’ve accomplished technically so far, but such things as usability, performance, flexibility,… still need more work. For instance, there’s still no WordPress MU version, i8n support is still missing, the backend needs more simplifying and much more.

But then again, if spam annoys you as much as the mosquitos in my room did me last night, then this is the plugin for you. Download the package, drop wp-mollom.php in your plugins folder, register with to get your keys, just configure them in the plugin and you’re all packed with some serious spam stoppage power.

Happy blogging!
