PICS (Picture Increment Cron System) is a WordPress Plugin designed to allow you to automatically post pictures to your WordPress blog at a administrator determined timed interval.

Have a bunch of photos that you want to show on your blog one at a time but you don’t want to go through all the hassle of making a separate post for each picture? Then this is the WordPress Plugin you have been waiting for.

  • WordPress 2.5+ (Could work on lower versions, but we will only support the WordPress 2.5+.)
  • MySQL 5+ (Could work on 4.1.1 but we haven’t tested it on that.)

Current Version: 1.0 (June 16, 2008)

Download: PICS v 1.0

WordPress Compatibility: Tested on WordPress 2.5.1

History:

One of us runs a website where they post a new photo every day from a very large collection. However, that same one person is pretty lazy when it comes to creating a new post for each photo. So this WordPress Plugin was the solution for that one persons laziness.

  • User defined timed posting of images from a single directory.
  • Optional incremented title (ex. Vacation Photo # 1, Vacation Photo #2, Vacation Photo #1,345, etc…)

  • Posts can be added to the categories of your choice.
  • Posts can have the tags of your choice.
  • Images can have the ALT tag of your choice.
