Catablog works with WP 5.5.1 as long as you install the following plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/enable-jquery-migrate-helper/. The following explains the purpose of this plugin.
With the update to WordPress 5.5, a migration tool known as
jquery-migrate will no longer be enabled by default. This may lead to unexpected behaviors in some themes or plugins who run older code.
This plugin serves as a temporary solution, enabling the migration script for your site to give your plugin and theme authors some more time to update, and test, their code.
CataBlog is a very simple and easy to use WordPress Image plugin that allows you organize your photos and images. You can organize your images in two different ways, in galleries and categories.
Think about it like this, you have a website about mobile phones. There are 100’s of different models and all have different images or photos. How would you organize so many photos?
The following is an example of how you could set up your images.
- Galleries = Mobile Phones.
- Categories = Samsung, Nokia, Blackberry, Kogan, iPhone and more. Remember that each brand has many different models.
Another advantage about CataBlog is that it allows you to sell your products online through PayPal. This means that you have a plugin that organizes your items and allows you to sell your items as well. It’s like having two plugins in one, an image organizer and a shopping cart.
Zach is planning to add more features in the future. As these features are implemented in new releases I will also be updating any tutorial to reflect the new features added. I will aso keep adding more tutorials to help you better understand how CataBlog works.
