Text Obfuscator Version 1.3.1

I’ve just published a minor update to the Text Obfuscator WordPress plugin to the plugin directory. This is an update I have sat on for a while but have decided to push in its current form.

There are only minor changes in this version:

  • Modified the behavior surrounding preceding and trailing white space in tokens and values.
  • Modified behavior so leaving the replace box blank now assumes a match removal rule even if ‘remove matched’ is not checked.
  • Added an uninstall function to tidy up settings when uninstalling.

I hope the white space handling will help out a few people who wish to match strings which include white space before and after their match string. Please leave a comment if you run into any problems with this release!

Text Obfuscator Version 1.3

After quite a lot of silence on this front, this morning I released version 1.3 of the Text Obfuscator plugin for WordPress. This version contains some new features and an overhaul to the user interface with the aim of making it a little easier to configure especially in light of the growing feature set.  If you’re using the plugin I’d love to hear your feedback.

The full changelog is below:

  • Added the option to apply rules to either pages, posts, or both.
  • Added the option to match or ignore case in matches.
  • Added option to remove matched string, not replace it.
  • Reworked the admin page to (hopefully) make it easier to use with new options.
  • Added settings link to plugin page.

The plugin can be downloaded from the WordPress Plugin Directory.

A word replacement plugin for WordPress

Text Obfuscator (formally known as Obfuscator) is a simple plugin for replacing words and phrases in your posts’ content with alternative words and phrases. Initially designed for protecting the innocent by removing names from personal blog posts, it can also be used to correct common spelling errors or automatically expand abbreviations. The plugin operates on output preserving the content in the database as entered in the post.

Versions up to and including 1.0 (0.1 and 0.2 released under the title Obfuscator) are very basic string replacement systems. Versions 1.1 and 1.2 are a little more advanced. [read more]
