Plugins

We’ve been writing plugins for a while, just keeping it a bit on the down-low. While all of our plugins are released under the GPLv3, some of them have been custom built for individual clients or our own side-projects. Here is a listing of all the plugins we’ve developed that can be downloaded for general use as well as a few plugins that we’re getting ready for public consumption.

Progress Bar

A simple plugin that adds a shortcode to display a nice-looking CSS3 progress bar with a couple optional variations. Can be customized with CSS to look however you want with an example on the FAQ page.

WordPress Wiki That Doesn’t Suck

This plugin was originally written to power our own Wiki. Since then, we’ve added to it, and uploaded it to the WordPress plugin repository.

IE 6 Countdown

This is another one that was originally written for our own benefit. Shortly after Microsoft launched their IE 6 Countdown campaign, we decided that it would be cool to have a plugin that automatically added the script to load their IE 6 countdown banner into your theme. This simple plugin does just that.

Protocol.by

This plugin is based on the Protocol.by service developed by the MIT Media Lab. Protocol.by is a way to inform your site visitors and email recipients of the best way(s) to get in touch with you. The Protocol.by plugin adds the necessary javascript into your site’s header, so all you need to do is add a <div> somewhere in a page or a post to display your contact info.

Updated Blog Metrics

Takes Joost de Valk’s Blog Metrics and applies it to posts over the last year. Used this on my personal blog to see how much I had blogged over the last year.

Releases

This plugin was developed for Plague Music. The Plague Music site needed a way for artists to post their album releases in an easy-to-use way that also gave them a dynamic profile page that displayed a list of all their releases. The solution was this plugin, Releases, and the companion plugin, Artists. This plugin has not been added to the WordPress repository as it uses a lot of generic function and post type names and was mostly built for internal use, but the code is public and it can be modified or forked freely.

Reviews

This plugin adds to the Releases plugin, and hooks into the Genre taxonomy that Releases adds to enable a custom post type for music reviews.

Products

This plugin was developed to fill a need when using Cart66. Many eCommerce solutions will build a full product front-end for the user, however Cart66 gives the user the flexibility to add products to any type of page they want. But what if you want a way to display all of your products in a separate section of your site? The Products plugin creates a custom post type, called Products, with some custom meta fields that allow you to use Cart66, Google Checkout or PayPal and customize your button images. If using Cart66, it automatically adds the shortcode to a custom single product template so you don’t need to worry about adding the shortcode to your post. Since it uses custom post types, you are able to create a custom product page and taxonomy pages for product categories.
