It’s been awhile, but a new beta version of Simple Lightbox is ready to be unleashed upon our awesome group of brave testers. Your testing helps to make SLB better with each update.
The beta is quite stable, but one person (me) can only do so much testing. Now it’s time to let it loose for all of you to install and test.
Version 1.6.2 is primarily a maintenance release. Not a lot has changed (except for a 95% rebuild of the JS code), so with your help it hopefully it won’t be long before 1.6.2 is ready for an official release.
What you get
For being a brave lad and installing the beta version on your site, you get the latest version with all the new features before anyone else. You also get a chance to provide feedback before the final version is released. Awesome, I know.
Oh yeah, and if you find a bug, the fix is named after you. Fame and fortune will surely soon follow.
How to report an issue
Every release is tested on a fresh installation of WordPress (current version) using the default themes. If you are experiencing a problem, it’s likely due to a conflict with a specific theme or plugin and I would love to hear about it. Just provide the information below and I will take a look your issue.If you have an bug/issue to report, please provide the following:
- URL of page exhibiting bug (I can’t do much if I can’t test it myself)
- WordPress version (3.3.1 etc.) — Note: SLB only supports the latest version of WordPress
- Other plugins installed
- Browser(s) with issue (Firefox, Chrome, etc.)
Note: As always, all previous stable versions of Simple Lightbox are available via WordPress’ official plugin page if you need to downgrade to a previous version for any reason.
