We’ve just tested and put out v4.4.2 of WP Auctions which is compatible with WordPress 3.5.
If you are using v4.4.1 with 3.5 don’t panic, it’ll still work. You might see a “wpdb()::prepare” error when you add/edit auctions, this is just a minor inconvenience till you upgrade, but will not affect the addition or editing of your auctions. Nor will it affect how the auctions function to your bidders.
What’s new v4.4.2?
Apart from compatibility with WordPress 3.5, v4.4.2 also supports better image handling, to coincide with the overall improvement in WordPress media management.
Images uploaded are now saved in your uploads/ folder and visible via your Media admin panel.
Some users may find that if they upload big images (in file size) it may take longer than usual to add an auction. This will only be a one time delay as the images get uploaded and re-sized for use in the auctions.
The best part?
There is no “files/” folder anymore and you need not CHMOD it!! A huge improvement to our overall drive to improve security with WP Auctions.
As always, we recommend you to upgrade via FTP. You can find more instructions for upgrading on our documentation page.
