WordPress Updates

Most recent version of GooglemapsForWP is: googlemapsForWP Version 5.2 (805) No more lost data from wordpress’ automatic update feature.  This is a controversial one.  The recommended way of updating plugins is to:
  1. Deactivate
  2. Upload new plugin to wp_content->plugins folder
  3. Reactivate
All nicely encapsulated in ‘aforementioned’ automatic update feature of your favourite blogging platform, WordPress.  Unfortunately, developers have no reliable hook into the system that allows them to separate install activities from update activities.  So it all comes back to checking that any database tables exist.   This version of the plugin puts control of the install in the hands of WordPress administrators by providing ‘setup db tables’ and ‘remove db tables’.  If you like it or if you really don’t please let me know.    On a side note this version uses the lovely JSON library that is now part of PHP core, as of version 5, for parsing the geocode data from Google geocode api.  Thanks to M.Migurski who wrote the original parser and who is also active elsewhere on the web.   I ‘look forward’ to reading from you :-D <<stretch>>
