I confirmed today the report that the To-Do List Plugin does not work in the alpha version of WordPress 3.0.
I’ve been unable to track down why it’s not working yet. As I have mentioned before, I didn’t write the plugin originally. I adopted it after it was abandoned since I used it on my own sites and really liked it. Since then, I’ve made it work in the current versions of WordPress and added a number of new features and fixes. The original plugin was also lacking security-wise.
The problem may be fixed with a small code change, or I may end up having to rewrite some of it.
If I do rewrite it, one thing I will change is so that it doesn’t redirect to the main to-do list page after checking an item off on the dashboard widget. In any case, I may do that anyway sometime.
I’ll get the plugin working in 3.0 one way or another before it’s release, since as I said it’s one that I do use myself.
Once thing I have been considering is where the main To-Do List page should be located. Currently it’s under Tools. Do you like it there or should it be moved under another header? Or even to it’s own top level heading in the menu?
