New plugins

HTML5 Player Plugin for WordPress allows bloggers to embed video and audio using the respective HTML 5 tags with Flowplayer as fallback, for example if a web browser doesn’t render HTML 5 video or audio, it will use Flowplayer (Flash) for that web browser.

IFRAME Embed For YouTube enables you to insert iframe code for a particular YouTube video on your WordPress blog. YouTube has recently released the IFRAME embed code for videos but still that code is not available on YouTube, forcing people to still use the OBJECT embed code for the flash player.

Simple Portfolio allows you to manage your portfolio projects easily and use them everywhere you like. This plugin is very simple to use, though it’s very powerful.

Updated plugins

After the Deadline uses artificial intelligence to check spelling, style, and grammar in WordPress.

eShop is an accessible shopping cart plugin for WordPress, packed with various features.

Exploit Scanner searches the files on your website, and the posts and comments tables of your database for anything suspicious. It also examines your list of active plugins for unusual filenames.

WP SlimStat is a simple but powerful web analytics plugin for WordPress. It doesn’t require any subscription to external statistic services: all metrics are kept on your local server, private and accessible to your eyes only.

    I am very excited for the iFrame embedded YouTube video plugin. This will make things a whole lot easier for me.

    Like Barry, I am also excited about the iFrame embedded for YouTube. It is a good invention of a plugin since YouTube is still the most shared video on the web.

    After the Deadline is a great plugin. I have been using it for quite a while now. eShop is another plugin I like.

      You’re welcome, and thanks for continuing to develop it! WP SlimStat is the most powerful and fully featured free stats plugin “on the market” today.

      Thank you for the wonderful words. I hope to make it even better, adding new features and new ways of looking at the data it collects. So, if you have anything you would like to see in WP SlimStat, feel free to let me know!

    Can anyone explain me why is iframe a better solution? As in, in which situations is it better than the old way?

    • James Huff (62 comments.) says:

      According to the official announcement, “If you use the new [IFRAME] embed code style, your viewers will be able to view your embedded video in one of our Flash or HTML5 players, depending on their viewing environment and preferences. . . An additional benefit of the new embed style is that it will eventually allow embeds to work on mobile devices, which typically use a built-in player instead of Flash or HTML5.”

        Thank you so much, had no idea about this.

        Looks like it’s the time I got a smartphone and stopped sticking to “it still works, so why change it”. Not the first time I failed when it comes to mobile compatibility issues.

        Hi James,

        After the changes I made to HTML5 Player Plugin for WordPress (now HTML5 Audio and Video Framework for WordPress) there is an alternative to IFrame Embed, rip the mp4 video from YouTube, use the ripped video as the HTML5 video source and YouTube as fallback. See “Autoembed as HTML5 Video and Audio Fallback?” in demonstration at .

        Cheers Chris.

    Making use of that After the Deadline plugin for its grammar. Good stuff.
