Lester Chan’s WordPress Plugins October 2007 Update

As promised, I have release updates to 12 of my plugins and added 2 new plugins. All of them are compatible with WordPress 2.3 but not all of them are backward compatible with WordPress 2.1 or 2.2.

The 2 new plugins are WP-DownloadManager and WP-PluginsUsed. As the name of the plugins suggest, WP-DownloadManager simply enhanced your WordPress by adding a simple download manager to it. WP-PluginsUsed will displays both active and inactive plugins that you are using in your WordPress blog.

Be sure to read the readme.html and checkout the changelog for more information and most importantly NOTE THE TABS AT THE TOP

Remote File

I have added a feature to WP-DownloadManager that will allow you to add a remote file to the downloads. This remote file will looks as if it resides on your own server and the process is totally transparent to the user. The only downside is at times it is unable to get the file size and hence it will display as unknown.

I have added WP-PostRatings 1.20 Beta 1 as an example of remote file. Remember that the file does not reside in this sever but it is pointing to a remote file url which is http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-postratings.zip

WP-DownloadManager 1.00 Beta

I have updated the readme and as promised, here is WP-DownloadManger 1.00. The download file below is being embedded into this post via the plugin =)

The readme.html is inside the zip and here is the live demo page. For more information, refer to the post below this.

WP-DownloadManager Updates

I have been spending the past few days coding WP-DownloadManager, and I am proud to say that I can release the beta very soon. I just left the readme.html to do.

For those who cannot wait for the readme, here is the direct link to the file via WordPress Plugins SVN.

As it is now, any file added to WP-DownloadManager can be download by anyone, I may add in permission to each file if I get enough responses.

Remember to update your permalinks by going to “WP-Admin -> Options -> Permalink” and click “Update Permalink Structure” because the file direct download link will be “http://yoursite.com/download/1/” where 1 is your file ID.

I think a picture paints a thousand words:

WordPress 2.1

Thanks to a fellow member (Turk) in GaMerZ.Forums, I came to know that WordPress 2.1 is in the beta stages, beta 1 to be exact. Some of my plugins maybe broken with WordPress 2.1 like WP-PageNavi and WP-Stats, but I had already fixed them. If you need it to test it out, feel free to drop me an email.

If you find any of my plugins that are not compatible with WordPress 2.1, please let me know so that I do not need to test all my plugins against WordPress 2.1

Now I need some ideas, I have been thinking the name of my new downloads plugin, but just could not come out with any name nice. WP-Downloads and WP-Download-Manager is taken.

I have the following in mind:
WP-Download (without the s)
WP-FileDownloads
WP-DownloadManager

Any suggestions are welcomed =)
