Unfiltered MU – fixed up for WPMU 2.8.4a

As you may well know I am of the option that there is a lot of value in paid service like WPMU DEV Premium – as they are responsive to your needs.

For example, when a plugin we offer stops working with a particular version of WordPress then we update it within days (or often hours!) or develop an alternative.

While free plugins often go out of date, aren’t fixed up and support is ignored – like Unfiltered MU which was last updated in May 2008 and basically no longer works. Despite the fact that the authors are Automattic, go figure.

Which is a problem, because it’s critical to a lot of sites.

So, here’s a fixed version that works just fine for WPMU 2.8.4a. Specifically it:

  • Works
  • Adds authors and contributors as unfiltered roles (you can edit this out pretty easily on lines 51 and 30)

Let us know if you have any issues with it :)

I should also mention that if you want more control than this plugin gives you there’s also the Additional Tags plugin – but that’s got guaranteed support / updates etc. attached to it…and  who’d want that :)
