I have changed all my plugins download links listed on My Programming Portfolio Page to point to the Official WordPress Plugins Repository instead of to my own site as many users have problem downloading it from my site because DreamHost is quite sucky recently. I have been able to download it at times and most of the times the download just got cut off. So I figured out it would be better to point it directly to plugins repository instead.
Sorry if it took so long, I have been very busy with my school.
Go: My Programming Portfolio Page
David Potter has reviewed several WordPress themes and plugins and you can find those reviews here.
He as reviewed 4 of my plugins namely WP-Email, WP-Print, WP-PostViews and WP-DownloadManager.
His reviews are all very detailed, go check them out.
I have added all my 16 plugins to this site downloads page, so you guys can grab the beta/development version of all my plugins easier.
All the plugins listed on that page are actually remote files each linking to the development version of the respective plugin over at WordPress Plugins Repository
Do note that the plugins listed there will always be beta/development version because once a version is stable, I will release it to https://lesterchan.net/portfolio/programming.php and http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/profile/GamerZ, and then move forward to the next development version.
I have updated all my plugins to the new structure as stated in the previous post. This site is running all of them right now. Things might break in this site, please post it in the forums if you find any bugs or any broken stuff.
If you would like to help me test the plugins, do check out: Getting Development Version Of My Plugins.
All my plugins will undergo a structure change to accommodate the Official WordPress Plugins Repository. This is also a much requested feature for most of my users as they complained that the zip file generated by WordPress Plugins Repository was 2 level deep and they got some issues when installing the plugin and the official plugin update notification will not work.
As posted in WordPress Ideas:
Some of us the older plugin authors are facing problem/hassle of restructuring the our plugin structure as our plugin name need not necessary follow the official plugin name folder naming convention.
And when user download the file from the repository, it will be the <official plugin name>\<plugin name>\<plugin>.php
As this is a major change, things will break, so I need you guys help to help me test it. The first plugin that rolls out this structure update will be WP-Polls.
The structure change for wp-polls involves:
- Using /wp-polls/ folder instead of /polls/
- Using wp-polls.php instead of polls.php
- Using wp-polls-widget.php instead of polls-widget.php
- Replacing all the old references with the new references stated above
Please kindly post any bugs found in WP-Polls Support Forum. Thank You.
I will roll out this updates to the rest of the plugins in December 2007/January 2008.
