A simple Widget to list choice comments as Testimonials

I wrote this little Widget for my Anti-Malware Pligins’ site, GOTMLS.NET. I get so many wonderful testimonials via comments from my … and I wanted to display some of my favorites in the sidebar. I’ve release this little Testimonials Widget on the WordPress Repository because I didn’t see any other plugin that did this simple task.

Just set the Comment Karma on your favorite comments then set the Karma value in the Widget settings to match. Otherwise this plugin just queries all the comments with the default Karma of 0.

I plan on adding a few more features when I have time but the idea here is to keep it simple: Display some rotating comments as Testimonials.

Let me know what you think in the comments.


Happy Birthday Blog

This Blog is one year old today. Now I can use the SMALY Widget that I wrote for the SHH Blog on this Blog. You can see links to my one-year-old posts on the sidebar under “THIS TIME LAST YEAR”.


New scan engine that works better on large file systems

I released the new scan engine in version 1.2.10.05 today. This is the scan process that I’ve had available as a BETA for a couple months but it was not ready for release until now. It take longer because it breaks the scan into smaller processes that complete independently of the scan initiation process. This has a better success rate (especially on server with lots of files or minimal memory) and allows for better error handling.

So there are now two types of scans:

  • Quick Scan – Good for small file systems, fast servers, or sites that have post restriction.
  • Complete Scan – Good for large file systems, servers with irregular permission issues, or low memory allocation.

The Automatic Fix process and File Viewer have been improved too. It loads nicer now and you can move this new pop-up window around on the page :-).

Please give me feedback on these new features and scan options.

Aloha, Eli
