The plugin was successfully tested with WordPress 3.6, jQuery 1.7.2 – 2.0.3, and themes like Twenty Ten, Twenty Eleven, Twenty Twelve and Genesis Framework.
If you want to display pullouts on specific pages of your site, rather than on every single page – get Advanced Text Widget PRO. These 2 plugins greately complement each other.
- If your theme uses jQuery, it has to be jQuery 1.7.1 (comes with WP by default) or higher.
- Re-adjusted calculations of tabs positioning to make them pixel-perfect in different browsers.
- Updated js code for compatibility with latest jQuery 2.0.3 and jQuery UI 1.10.3.
- Improved detection if widgets have IDs, which supposed to be created via register_sidebar() function. If ID doesn’t exist, PullOut Widgets adds an inner DIV wrapper for widgets with correct IDs.
- Fixed: phone detection wasn’t working correctly for deactivating the plugin on phones.
- Improved: On/Off switch for mobile devices is now can be set in wp-config.php file by adding define(‘POW_OFF’, false); or other preferred value (phone/tablet).
- Removed console.log() form the JS code, which is not supported by IE7.
- Improved: page loading speed of the administrative Widgets dashboard.
- Improved: removed dependency on jQuery.browser since it’s no longer exist in jQuery 1.9+. Thanks Michele Beltrame for the heads up.
- Improved: CSS for IE7 has its own hack without affecting other browsers.
- Fixed: compatibility issue with WP3.5
- Fixed: cookie wasn’t read correctly.
- New: POW_OFF setting in pullouts.php – allows to turn off the plugin for mobile devices (phones, tablets or all mobile devices). By default turns off plugin for phones only.
- Fixed: tab icons didn’t display in IE and Opera.
- Fixed: widgets stopped working in IE7/8. Some dimension getters were returning NuN, which weren’t correctly validated.
- Fixed: prevented animation queue build-up when triggering tabs during closing of the widgets.
- Fixed: pullout ID wasn’t saved in pullout JS vars when used with ATW plugin.
- Fixed: pullout JS vars were output multiple times on the page.
- Improvement: in some themes JS parameters of pullouts were not included into the footer. Moving wp_localize_script() function form footer solves this issue. This also eliminates dependency on wp_footer() completely.
- Improvement: IE9 support for vertical tabs.
- Fixed: Widgets with vertical tabs were invisible in Opera browsers.
- Fixed: Minor PHP notices.
- New: Auto-pullout timer.
- New: Auto-pullout after visiting number of pages.
- New: Auto-pullout triggered by appearance of specified element on the page.

- background color;
- border color;
- text color;
- link color;
- tab offset along the side of the widget;
- New: Customizable sliding/pullout speed.
- New: Customizable open/close tab labels.
- Updated widget settings dialog with all options organized into an accordion.
- Fixed: icon preview wasn’t functioning when icon was selected for the first time within the options.
- Fixed: color picker wasn’t initiating when clicking on the color field on newly dragged into the sidebar widgets. This wasn’t happening with widgets which settings were saved at least once.
- Fixed: there were issues in IE due to overlooked console log declarations on my part that weren’t supported by IE.
- Improvement: forcing to use default jQuery library that is included into WordPress. This should help to avoid issues with themes and plugins that overwrite the default library with older versions.
- Added on-the-fly wrapper for widgets if their original IDs are not in the theme’s markup.
- Eliminated the wp_footer() dependency.
- Added default positioning of the widget in case it’s not specified.
- BugFix: Icons weren’t displaying in the pullout widgets options dialog.
- Initial Release.
