I have finally got a version of the next release of WordPress Backup to Dropbox available for testing. This release adds the ability for users to exclude files from their backup, fixes some bugs and adds a some language translations.
The first thing you will notice after installing 0.9 is the exclude files or directories widget.
This widget will show every file within your WordPress directory giving you the ability to select what you wish to exclude from the backup. Checking a file will exclude it from the backup and checking a directory will exclude it and all its contents. A circle is displayed for a directory where at least one file or directory within it is to be included in the backup. In the example above the ‘cgi-bin’ directory and the ‘align-not.png’ file are to be excluded from the backup. The ‘wp-admin’ and ‘images’ directory are marked as partial because only one file is excluded within them.
Please Note: This widget is not available for Internet Explorer 7 or below. If you are one of the unfortunate souls that still use this deprecated browser please update!
In addition to this new widget I have fixed the following issues:
- Issue #18 – Issues with the path separator for windows users
- Issues with re-authorizing the plugin after access has been revoked from within Dropbox
- Tweaked the backup monitor task timings in an attempt to fix backup resume spamming
- Added a domain to i18n function calls for easier translation
- Issue #25 – Error or conflict when activating WordPress Backup to Dropbox
The plugin is now available in the following languages:
- Arabic (ar)
- Brazilian Portuguese (pt_BR)
- Portuguese (pt_PT)
- Galician Spanish (gl_ES)
- Spanish (es_ES)
