For some time now I have been looking at my plugins and deciding which I wanted to discontinue, which to continue supporting and which I thought someone may be interested in taking over ownership of. One such plugin is the Gallery Shortcode Style to Head plugin which does a look ahead to determine if any posts that will be displayed require the CSS, normally inserted into the body of a post, associated with the [gallery] shortcode. If it determines that such a post will be displayed on the page it prints the CSS to the head of the document, allowing the page to validate as XHTML 1.0.
I had decided to discontinue this plugin, but was recently contacted by Scott Bradford offering a patch to the plugin. After some discussion, I convinced Scott into taking over ownership of the plugin. The new home of the plugin can be found at http://www.scottbradford.us/software/gallery-shortcode-style-to-head/.
I will be redirecting requests to my site for this plugin to Scott’s site. So if you have any questions from this moment forward stop by and talk to Scott.

As of about 10 minutes ago I disabled new registrations and switched my forums to read only. I have done this in favor of the WordPress.org forums. I find myself every day with less and less time to support my plugins and hope that the move will allow other users to help out. Below you will find a link list for the support forum for each of my current plugins.
Stealing from a post by Viper007Bond of similar title from not too long ago:
So if you need support for one of my plugins, please visit it’s page on the WordPress.org Plugins area (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/plugin-stub-here/) and then click on “See what others are saying…” on the right side. That’ll take you to a new thread forum with the tag field already filled in with my plugin’s name (if you don’t properly tag your thread, I won’t see it).

There are several important things to take note of:
- PHP 4 Support Dropped
- Additional Skins Removed
- Custom skinning now requires 2 filters, see the FAQ for more information
- The FLV player is disabled by default requiring you to agree to the licensing of the JW FLV Player before it can be used
If you are upgrading from one of the beta releases of this plugin you should use the option to reset to defaults after updating.
