The last update to the pagebar plugin has been made over a year ago. Since all new ideas will be included in version 3 and the plugin was working fine with every new update of WordPress there was no need for an update.
Watches do have a a common problem: the good one’s are quite expensive and you don’t want to scratch them during daily handicrafts. The cheap one’s are kaputt after such a short time that buying them isn’t worth it.
This week a big German chain store offered a Casio F91-W for 9,99€. I couldn’t say no to this offer. This type of watch exists since 1991 and that cannot be a coincidence. If the watch is operable for on year I am happy but I hope that it will last longer. Let’s see what happens…
I know loads of WordPress developers by name and have an idea how they look. What I also find interesting is the way people work. Do they use a laptop, how many monitors do they use and other stuf). Here’s my desktop (I’ve tidied it up before taking the image :-)):
The machine is an “ASRock Z77 Extreme” with an i5 3,4 GHz processor, 8 GB of RAM and a Radeon HD7770 graphics card.
I’ve got two 24″ Benq monitors and yes, that’s a TV on the left side. The keyboard is a good old “Windows Natural Pro” and the mouse an IntelliMouse.
Though pagebar is quite customizable you can’t define the overall look. “Previous page” is always on the most left, followed by “First” and so on but maybe you want the elements in a different order.

Part 1: Direct page access
I always wanted to add a fast and direct page selection. The easiest way would be to add a selection box containing all page numbers. This might work if you’re having about 10 pages but if your blog is really, really large, say about 300 pages, a select box with 300 numbers would be quite clumsy: Continue reading Ideas for pagebar v3 – Part 1: Direct page access
As far as I can remember web browsers replace the characters of a password field with stars (did Mosaic already do this?) but this feature is not always helpful. Fortunately you can change this! Continue reading Hide the password hiding stars
One of the main problems of the automagic insertion of postbbar was a second query in the sidebar displaying “Recent posts” that is used by many themes. Version 3.3 introduced a new function called “is_main_query” which enables the plugins to display the postbar only after the main main query. I hope this works for all themes because @toscho thinks that the function has some issues.
Finally there is a new translation for pagebar: Romanian (ro_RO). I received the translation ages ago, excuses go to Web Geek Science
