Single Bits Update Problems

Recommended Posts


Hi Ellen,

I've got Single Bits 1.05 running on one live site and on four, local test sites.


I see that 1.06 is out. Trouble is, I do not see the update availability on a consistent basis.

Sometimes it shows in the update available area, other times not. This occurs across the sites listed above.



I ran the update on one of my dev sites and all was fine. It was a different site than the live one. I.e., not a clone.


Then I ran it on the live site and two things happened:

  1. All the single posts went away
  2. The backend of the site still showed 1.05 as a version number

I tried copying over the updated plugin file with an actual, older 1.05 but had the same result.


In the end I had to restore from a BackupBuddy backup.


Tomorrow, I'll update the local clone and see what happens.

As I recall, when I went to the front end in order to replace the SingleBits sections, they did not exist in my sections area.


On the local dev site I got a notification this morning, from 1.0.5 to 1.0.6.

Immediately after clicking update now, I was told that my version was the latest.


Logging out and in again, I tried once more and succeeded. All seems fine afterwards.


Though I'm nervous, I'll try the live site once more.

After trying to update the live version using the normal, WP plugin page update area,  it failed again.

So I took a different approach, which has been unnecessary for any other plugin updates.


  1. Deactivate CloudFlare
  2. Purge CloudFlare cache
  3. Enable no cache mode on the DMS side
  4. Purge cache for WP-Rocket
  5. Delete the single bits folder, via the server
  6. Upload the single bits 1.06 folder to the site via FTP
  7. Refresh the browser
  8. Success!

      Help! I urgently need to remove the "This post was last edited..." that is now appearing anywhere that I've used Single Bits for a post. 
      James Giroux kindly provided this reply...but it does nothing. HELP! 
      This is from the Single Bits section by Ellen.  The code to add to the functions.php to remove this is:
      if(class_exists('elsueSingleBitsPlugin')) { $instance = elsueSingleBitsPlugin::this(); remove_filter('the_content', array($instance , 'add_mod_hatom_data'), 5 ); }

      I'm stuck in a loop. We're developing a magazine type format and having been using Single Bits Single Post as the template..fine, no problem. Looks great! 
      But, some of the articles now have either a lot of media, or multi media, so we wanted to set up another template for these posts. But, if I change the media content on one post, it 
      changes it on the others. I've tried setting up Custom Posts, but that removes the post from the wp post "categories" and then deletes the post from something like HoverNews that pulls by category. 
      So how do I have the media change for each post? I've tried setting up a separate template for each of these particular, media specific posts...but that doesn't help either because they are posts, not pages. 
      Can PM you the link as the site is not live yet. Thanks!!

      I want to change the text color of the post title in a specific post - How do I do that through CSS?
      I've downloaded a plugin which allows me to add custom CSS in specific posts, but I do not seem to get the selectors right.
      I am using the light-bg class on the single-bit container as well, which then includes a single-bit with the post title.

      I am working on a website right now that uses custom tab colors that also match the background color of the tab content area. However, when a tab is open the tab bg color appear slightly different than the bg of the content area. I have double checked all my setting and can't seem to find a way to override this. 
      Would a link be helpful so you can see what I am referring to? I will include a screenshot in case that works...
      Thank you so much for all your help!
