qTranslate Widget Validation Fixer – No longer necessary?

So after upgrading to qTranslate version 2.5 I am not longer getting the validation error I used to get, ie meaning the small plugin is no longer needed.

Can anyone else confirm this?

qTranslate Widget Validation Fixer

This is a small plugin which fixes a validation error I was having with otherwise brilliant qTranslate plugin. Basically there were duplicate ID’s on the page, and I kept getting this error:
ID "qtranslate-3" already defined
For more, refer to this thread.

To date this doesn’t seem to have been fixed (I suspect not everyone experiences this issue), so I wrote a small plugin which manually re-writes on the qTranslate plugin files to get around the error.


  1. Copy into your wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. Activate it (with qTranslate already activated)
  3. You can de-activate immediately afterwards.
  4. Repeat steps 2 & 3 each time you update qTranslate

External Linker – My first public WordPress Plugin!

I’ve done quite a few WordPress plugins but this is the first one I’m making public, because I think others might find it useful. Basically, you know how target=_blank is invalid in XHTML strict? Well, this uses a Javascript hack to get around this.  The code was originally taken from this thread I came across: http://www.webmasterworld.com/forum21/11165.htm

More to come soon, meanwhile if you have any comments whatsoever about the plugin just let me know!
