Last week we released updates for our core WPtouch Pro plugin, as well as our Bauhaus theme. This was a compatiblity release, and along with a minor bug fix, we added much better support for plugins that interact with the WordPress comment form! These changes were also bundled up and released in WPtouch free.
You may notice a small cosmetic change to the layout of the comment form, but the significant change was under the hood. With this change, other plugins that want to interact with the form now can.
You can, for example, now use JetPack’s Comments module to simplify the form, and allow users to identify themselves using a social media account.
We hope that this update will allow you to take better advantage of the many WordPress plugins out there, and spark more discussion on your blog!
A changelog for this release is below.
* We resolved a bug that could output a PHP warning message for some users. The warning appeared in the mobile theme’s menu, and the bug that triggered it is now fixed.
* We made a couple of small changes to support Bauhaus’ new comment form.
* We replaced our old comment form with the newer, better supported WordPress form.
