Announcing V1.5 of the Digital Services Wordpress API plugin.

Oct 29, 2013

The long awaited Version 1.5 of the NPR API Wordpress plugin is now available.  This one took a while to get it out the door, but it should be worth the wait.  We've added some new functionality and fixed a couple of issues we learned about since V1.4 came out.    

V1.5 of this plugin is available under the main/master branch at https://github.com/npr/WP-DS-NPR-API

The highlights of V1.5 include :

  • Better ordering of images being sent to the NPR Story API
  • Mapping of media credit and agency for media included in stories pulled from the NPR Story API
  • Support for multiple bylines for sites that use the Co-Authors-Plus plugin.
  • Better story date and story order for stories pulled from the NPR Story API
  • Configurable cron interval for pulling from the API
  • Image crops.  That's right, image crops!  We are now pulling the largest possible crop we can find for images in stories pulled from the NPR Story API.
  • Better round-tripping of in-line images that will work better with Core Publisher installs.
  • Meta fields for pulled images.

Check out the release notes in the Github repository for a bit more info on what we did for V1.5

As always, if you have any questions about the plugin feel free to use the mailing list wp-api-dev@ds.npr.org and your fellow WP users may have a solution for you.
