Are You Developing A Cool WordPress Plugin? Let me Know About It

By Daniel Scocco

Some time ago I did a review of a WordPress plugin called Referrer Detector. After the review the owner of a plugin that did a similar thing (and that apparently inspired the Referrer Detector author) contacted me asking me why I had not reviewed his plugin, too.

The answer was pretty simple: I didn’t review his plugin because I didn’t know about it!

The author of the Referrer Dectetor one emailed me with a link to his plugin. I went there to check it out, liked the idea, and wrote a review about it. Once I discovered the other similar plugin it was too late, because covering two plugins that do pretty much the same job would be pointless for my readers.

If you have developed or are developing a cool WordPress plugin and would like to let me know about it, all you have to do is to send me an email via the contact form with a link and a small description. I will at least check it out, and if I like the concept, I might share it with my readers.

    I just started developing my first one but I’m not going to tell anyone what it is. I would not want anyone to steal my idea.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Blog Expert, by “developing” I mean already released the plugin and is just improving it with new versions.

    Not trying to steal the idea of anyone here hehe.

    I’ve developed a plugin called WordPress Popular Posts (do I need to tell you what it does? hehe).

    Right now, it ranks the most popular entries by post count. In the near future (say, a couple of weeks from now maybe) it will allow people to choose how to rank their posts: comment count, pageviews, or average daily views.

    I’m already testing the new features in my blog and will release it after I’m done with the tests.

    We have two plugins that maybe worth your while.

    1. Widget Locationizer – permits you to do the following:

    Assign widget to display via TAGS
    Assign widget to display via CATEGORIES
    Assign widget to display via POST/PAGE ID
    Assign widget to display EVERYWHERE
    Assign widget to display EVERYWHERE EXCEPT X, Y, Z…
    Assign NOFOLLOW OR DOFOLLOW

    Thus it provides you the ability to provide fresh interesting sidebar content and more relevant ads that can improve CTR and increase sales.

    You can find it here: http://tomuse.com/wordpress/widget-locationizer

    We are currently working on an extended version with much more flexibility that will be released any day now! 🙂

    2. WP Secure Downloads – Ecommerce solution to sell digital goods from your WP website. Permits greater profit margins, promotes membership, RSS subscription, and visitor loyalty. Enables you to keep visitors on your website for improved page views, potiential sales, click through rates, and more.

    Maybe you could’ve updated your review on Referrer Detector & mentioned in end notes about this other plugin & a short comparison between the two! I think that would’ve added more value to the review. 🙂

    Oops… I didn’t know about this ‘shout out’ opportunity. I released my first plugin earlier this month and though I thought it was a useful plugin it went without much fanfare due to lack of advertisement 🙁

    Ajith:

    Nice plugin: http://www.dollarshower.com/contact-commenters-wordpress-plugin/

    I especially like how it reminds you to visit your commenters’ sites and how you can mine the frequency of commenters! 🙂

    We are putting together a plugin bundle for multi-lingual WordPress CMS. The project is just kicking off and we are looking for a snappy name for the project.

    I wanted to start doing WordPress Plug ins as well since I really wanted to learn. Is there a site where I can read so that I can start making it and learning at the same time :).
