Acrolinx for WordPress - Version 1.2 (20 March 2018)
This release brings you an improved Sidebar and the option to Embed Check Data.
Sidebar for All Subsites on a Multisite Network
Acrolinx had some trouble with multisite networks. So, if you’ve activated multisite on your installation of WordPress, Acrolinx didn't work for subsites. These days are over, Acrolinx works for all subsites on a multisite network.
Check More Content with Acrolinx
Acrolinx used to read the content from your rich text editor only. But Acrolinx loves to check content and wanted more. That’s why you can now check content like title, body, description, excerpt, and custom fields too. On top of that, you can apply context-specific guidelines to get a deeper insight into keywords and page metadata.
The Sidebar used to be docked in the widget box. This caused a scrolling usability nightmare with longer pages. For a better night's sleep, the Sidebar is now free floating. You can stick the Sidebar where you need it.
Acrolinx No Longer Relies on the Cloud
Acrolinx used to load the Sidebar start page from the cloud. Now, we’ve bundled the start page with Acrolinx.
Embed Check Data
If your Acrolinx administrator enables Embed Check Data, Acrolinx saves the Acrolinx Score, time stamp, and link to the Scorecard for all your checked content. Just another way to keep track of your content quality at a glance!
New Acrolinx for WordPress Documentation
Acrolinx Guidance Package Includes New Content Profile
To make checking in Acrolinx for WordPress a breeze, starting with Guidance Package 5.4, you get a new Content Profile included for WordPress. You can also update your earlier Guidance Package to get this new Content Profile.
Single Sign-on (SSO)
You couldn't use Single Sign-on (SSO) with the previous version of Acrolinx because there was a problem with the proxy. This was annoying. We've fixed the proxy, so SSO runs smoothly.
Acrolinx tried to load the Sidebar in the Media library list view, but this resulted in an error message. To avoid confusion, we removed the Acrolinx button from the media pages.
Broken Source Article Links in Scorecard
If you're using Acrolinx version 5.4 or earlier, you might notice that some of the article links in your Scorecards are broken. This turned out to be a server-side issue, so it can easily be fixed by updating your Core Platform to Acrolinx 5.5.
We added support for WordPress 4.7, 4.8, and 4.9 and dropped support for older versions of WordPress 4.5.2, 4.6.1.
Acrolinx for WordPress requires the following:
- Acrolinx version 5.3.1 and later
- 5.3 Guidance Package
- PHP 7.0 or higher
Acrolinx for WordPress - Version 1.1 (7 June 2016 - Acrolinx 5)
This is a minor release but it also includes a few other improvements, bug fixes, and updates.
You can now use Acrolinx with Custom Post Types
Previously, Acrolinx only worked with the standard post and page templates that come installed in WordPress. You can now use Acrolinx to edit content in custom post types. By default WordPress comes with post and pages as the main content types. However, you can create as many custom content types as you like, and these custom content types are referred to as Custom Post Types.
You can now use Acrolinx with multiple text boxes on a single post or page
Previously, Acrolinx only worked for checking the content of one text box on a post or page. If you've got multiple text boxes on a post or page, Acrolinx now checks the content of all supported text boxes. Keep in mind that we don't yet support checking the title text box of the page.
We added a new property to turn the Acrolinx plug-in proxy module on or off
For Single Sign-on (SSO) to work correctly, the Acrolinx plug-in uses a built-in proxy module, which runs on the WordPress server. When you configure SSO, this proxy module is turned on automatically. When you don't configure SSO then the proxy module stays turned off. However, if you want to turn the proxy module on, you can use this new property. You can find this property in the "plug-in configuration" section on the WordPress settings page.
To turn the proxy module on, configure the property like this:
To turn it back off, you can set it back to
To turn the proxy module on, you'll need Sidebar version 14.1, which will be available with Acrolinx server version 5.0.
We've added support for WordPress version 4.5.2
Update to the Acrolinx Server version 4.7 to use Acrolinx for WordPress version 4.5.2.
Acrolinx for WordPress - Version 1.0 (21 March 2016)
This is the first release of a new Sidebar edition plug-in for WordPress. This plug-in comes with all the standard Acrolinx functionality. The installation and setup of the plug-in are almost identical to that of the previous version 4.3 WordPress classic edition plug-in.
Developers can read the instructions for installing and configuring Acrolinx for WordPress in the article Installing and Upgrading Acrolinx in Your Web Application in this help center.
Install Acrolinx Plugin using the WordPress Admin Plugin Upload
To get the plug-in, ask Acrolinx support to make it available on your Acrolinx software download area. You can then add the plug-in in the WordPress admin area.
New Acrolinx Sidebar version 14
We've changed the way you review and edit issues in your content. Instead of highlighting the issues directly in the text, we show you the issues in a new Sidebar. This means that Acrolinx doesn't interfere with your text and you can review the issues side by side with your content. You'll have quicker access to all the Acrolinx features that you're used to, because our Sidebar is always by your side in a very unobtrusive way.
We've developed and tested this plug-in with WordPress version 4.4.2.
The plug-in requires the following Acrolinx products:
- Acrolinx server version 4.7 or later
- Acrolinx resources version 4.7 or later
- Acrolinx sidebar version 14.0.
