Change log


Added lookup for image sizes incase someone adds a custom size for comic usage. Controls for custom image sizes currently locked.
Compatability check for WP v 4.8


(internal release only)
Added non-hardcoded controls to lock-out images based on Membership Levels defined by s2Member. Gives both Membership Lable as well as Membership Level in dropdown controls.


Tested and updated plugin with most recent verion of WordPress. Yup! Still works as intended.
Setting ‘Access Level’ restrictions to ‘EVERYONE’ when the ‘Image Size’ is checked will now funtion the same as if the ‘Image Size’ was not checked and no restrictions applied.


Fixed CE ♥ s2 Thumbnail plugin to correctly see the settings drip times. Fixed bug where Thumbnail Plugin was not respecting ‘Chapter’ settings.

Cleaning up the Readme text for display on the Plugins repository. No codeing changes made.


Fixed the comic display so that it would correctly display/interact when ‘Comic Easel’->’Clicking the comic goes to next comic’ is active
Removed add_action via Frumph’s wonderful suggestion.
Changed timestamp creation to fall more inline with WordPress standards.


(internal release only)
Added the ability to set image size via membership level. Currently hard coded to the 4 basic membership levels that come standard with s2member. It can be wonky since it can be set in any random order, so use with caution.


Fixed bug were variable was feeding into the wrong filter.


Changed plugin/file name to ‘SMEW Comic Easel <3 s2member’ to avoid lookup confusion with Comic Easel on the WordPress Plugin Update Repository. Doh!
