Let me take this opportunity of wishing all the readers of Weblog Tools Collection a merry merry Christmas and happy holidays!
Our long time readers would remember two months in 2007 when we reviewed one WordPress plugin a day.
The last 18 months has seen a lot of changes in the world of WordPress. We’ve had several version updates including few really major upgrades since then as well as the introduction of the WordPress Plugin Repository.
With several new plugins being released everyday and several more updated regularly, we’ve decided it’s time once again for a plugin review.
However, this time instead of a daily review, we’ll be focusing on the reviewing a plugin a week. So, every Sunday, from next year, starting 4th of January, we will pick a plugin to feature.
So, how do we pick?
Just like we did the last time; through recommendations and requests. Are you a plugin author or user? If so, then write in and tell us.
You can send in an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line APAD: Plugin Name.
What do you need to tell us?
The following details are mandatory.
- Plugin Name
- URL of the plugin page and location to download the file
- URL of the page on WordPress Plugin Repository if your plugin is available there.
- Detailed description of the plugin (this is the most important of the list)
You may optionally add the following:
- Detailed feature list
- Implementation instructions
- Demo of the plugin
- Future plans
- Any other detail that will assist our review
What do you get in return?
Your plugin receiving a focused review is a sure shot way to drive tonnes of traffic to your website. It will also improve usage of your plugin.
More importantly, we will be asking our readers to suggest improvements and request features. This will work as a major brain storming session, where you can cater to features as demanded by the users.
We will checkout the various plugins and select one of them for review. Again, there isn’t any hard or fast rule on selecting this and choice will be made more on the basis of how your plugin appeals to us. So, make sure your email is highlights everything you want us to know.
