Minor update to ThinkTwit – 1.3.8

Some of you may have noticed already that I launched a minor update yesterday to ThinkTwit – it wasn’t a major update hence I’ve been a bit tardy posting about it, though it has taken a lot of effort and been a number of weeks in the coming during which 2 other updates have come since I started coding it but the update wasn’t finished to get in to either of them.

They are:

  • Added “Reset Settings” link to options – this allows you to click a link and very quickly reset the options to the default, useful if you are playing around with new settings and want to quickly return to default (from when it was installed)
  • Replaced settings roll up workaround with proper jQuery code – this isn’t massively noticeable but removes hacked together code and makes the presentation slightly better, this is what I was aiming for when I first introduced the ability to roll up the options in the widget on the Admin page

I’m not sure how much this will benefit everyone but as usual if you have any comments please let me know, I really like to hear feedback and find out how ThinkTwit can be improved.
