As a plugin developer I find the hardest part of the process to be coming up with new ideas that I can turn into a plugin. Sure, there are tons of places out there that list lots of ideas but, I’ve found that it’s hard to find a good idea that will actually make a useful plugin which will appeal to a large audience. Most ideas that are out there floating around are very specific and some would only be useful to only a very select few.
I’ve been searching non-stop for the better part of a month now and have yet to come across an idea that would actually be very useful and also feasible. I want something that I can complete in a decent amount of time and would also leave room for lots of improvement.
So, today I’m here to ask you, the user, what you want. I know this question has been asked a lot but, once more can’t hurt…
What would you most love in a WordPress plugin? Is it something that should be a plugin? Or perhaps a part of the core of WordPress itself? Will many people find it useful? Or just a very select few? If such a plugin were to be created, what would you need it to do? How could it be expanded on in the future? Is it something that should remain a plugin or perhaps one day become a part of the core?
So, lets hear it! Don’t hold back. Even if you don’t think it is a very good idea, I want to hear about it anyway. The best idea of the bunch will become a WordPress plugin! Any other great ideas may also eventually become a plugin. I’m all ears so let’r rip!
We have a special prize for the reader whose idea we use to develop a plugin with. The reader will receive a WeblogToolsCollection hat and stickers in the mail. The winner will be announced in a subsequent post.
