AWSOM News Announcement updated to 1.4.6, WordPress 2.7 compatible

December 12th, 2008 by harknell

Hi Everyone, I’ve just updated the AWSOM News Announcement plugin to be WordPress 2.7 compatible. Please replace your current Plugin Files with the new version available from the website. The biggest change is the new location for Managing your News Announcements–this is now under the “Posts” section of the Admin menu. This is now true for all versions of WordPress.

Please let me know if you run into any problems with the Plugin for any version of WordPress.

    Why does wordpress plug-in updates confuse AWSOM Archive 1.4.1 with AWSOM News Announcement 1.4.6

    It shows an update available for AWSOM Archive but the version number is 1.4.6. If I automatically updated it, it installs AWSOM News Announcement 1.4.6

    This is part of the reason I don’t like the auto upgrade systems in the new WordPRess. Something at the Subversion system at is screwed up and is putting out this mistake, and I can’t do anything about it. I’ve tried contacting someone but never got a response. So please just ignore these notices and always get your files from here at for any updates.

    It is not compatible with 2.6.3 (the News are shown but it’s impossible to edit them).

    D’oh! Backward compatibility broken. Ugh, new version up today for this. Thanks for reporting the issue Li-An.
