Version history for the Prayer Engine plugin

Version is a quick bug fix release that corrects an issue where the newly updated spam protection incorrectly flagged some prayer requests as containing HTML (when they actually didn't).

Version 2.3 is a fresh update that includes enhanced spam protection against hyperlinks and a few notable prayer wall spammers. It also includes a new plugin update system to address plugin updates on outdated servers.

Version 2.2.1 is a small update that adds compatibility with the new version of jQuery found in WordPress 5.5.

Version 2.2 adds one of the most commonly requested features from our customers: the ability to limit the length of prayer requests submitted! Whether you want to help long-winded folks keep things short, or add another layer of spam prevention (almost all spam bots want to post a novel), our new character limits should do the trick. You'll find this new field in the settings for each of your prayer walls.

Version is a bug fix release that fixes an issue with 2.1+ users not getting emails when someone had prayed for a request.

Version 2.1.5 is a small feature release that focuses on a few key areas:

Version 2.1 is a bug fix and improvment release that allows the "I Prayed for This" button to work on servers with overzealous security settings, improves the prayer count number accuracy on highly active prayer walls, and adds phone numbers and email addresses to .CSV reports.

Please note: If you have caching enabled on your site, you may want to refresh your pages after this update as it references different JS files than older versions.

Version is another bug fix release that addresses spam protection not working properly on certain server configurations.

Version is a small bug fix release that addresses broken recaptcha spam protection on some sites.

Version adjusts some of the form field validation found in 2.0.9 to ensure full compatibility with older versions of Wordpress.

Version 2.0.9 is a small but important security update that's recommended for all users. We recently discovered a minor XSS vulnerability, and although the potential impact of the hack would be extremely limited in scope, we've addressed the vulnerability in this update and updated our existing security measures. We've also squished a few other minor bugs that would sometimes pop up in the admin interface, and addressed an issue where prayer request forms and focuses wouldn't submit due to incorrect permalinks in a small number of page builders.

Version is a bug fix release that addresses an issue where users using multiple shortcodes on the same page would run into issues after the previous update.

Version 2.0.7 is a small enhancement update that adds support for including multiple prayer focus calendars on the same page or post.

Version 1.8 is a feature release that focuses on several key improvements:

Version 1.7.5 addresses some (mostly harmless) issues that popped up when saving settings in WP 4.7+. It also adjusts the way datestamps are saved to be more accurate to the timezone set in WordPress.

Version 1.7.4 addresses an issue where themes (like Divi) that use proprietary page builders would sometimes leave exposed code on the page with Prayer Engine.

Version 1.7.3 is another bug fix release that addresses an issue where Prayer Engine will no longer appear for users using very old versions of PHP (anything less than 5.3). Please note that PHP 5.3+ is required to use the Recaptcha system to prevent spam.

Version 1.7.2 is a bug fix release that addresses an error some users experienced with the new captcha system.

Version 1.7.1 is an enhancement and bug fix release. It includes:

Version 1.3.5 reengineers the anti-spam captcha to more closely match your chosen color palette and play nicely with the new responsive theme!

Version 1.3 is a feature update that adds a responsive stylesheet to make Prayer Engine compatible with mobile devices... Woohoo!

Version is a minor bug fix release for those who experienced prayer wall errors after the 1.2 upgrade.

Version 1.2 is a major release, including several highly requested new features...

Version 1.1.1 is a bug fix release that compensates for other poorly coded plugins that could potentially break certain portions of Prayer Engine code.

Version 1.1 adds two highly requested features to the plugin: an optional CAPTCHA for spam protection (yay!), and the ability to limit how many requests are shown on your wall by a certain period of time. Visit "Settings > Prayer Engine" to configure. Be sure to back up any Prayer Engine stylesheet/code changes before installing this update; it will overwrite them!

Version 1.0.6 addresses issues for users with a Home URL that is different from the WordPress Site URL. Be sure to back up any Prayer Engine stylesheet/code changes before installing this update; it will overwrite them!

Version 1.0.4 fixes the "file already declared (usually markdown)" PHP bug that pops up when The Prayer Engine is run alongside of conflicting plugins. Be sure to back up any Prayer Engine stylesheet/code changes before installing this update; it will overwrite them!

Version 1.0.3 removes the solid color bar behind the prayer wall title and submit button for better theme compatibility.

Version 1.0.2 is a bug fix release and recommended download. It includes several style tweaks for better theme compatibility, along with a feature to override overzealous theme formatting.
