A New Plugin – Plugin’s Last Updated Column

So Karissa asked me at WordPressKc’s Meetup group if I knew of a plugin that would show when plugins were last updated on the admin plugin’s page.  Right now you’d have to search up the plugin on wordpress.org to find this information.  I didn’t know of a plugin with this functionality, so Karissa suggested that would be a good idea for a plugin.  I told her I would look into this when I get some time.

I finally had some time yesterday to sit down and figure this out.  3 Hours after I started, it was done.  I’ve submitted this to WordPress.org’s plugin repository.

WordPress-Smart 404 Plugin

A great tool for not showing 404 pages on your wordpress website.  I’ve used this for a couple years now.  I just recently discovered that if you type in a url with a keyword that cannot be found in your posts or pages, this plugin will show a 404 page.  The whole point of this plugin is to be smart right?  Well as a fix for now I’ve just made it default to your lastest post if it cannot find the keywords in the uri.  Fix can be found @ Pastebin: http://pastebin.com/1qb4h11V

WordPress Starter Plugin

Everything you need to write your own plugin. This is the starter solution. It shows how to plugin with your own class to wordpress, already set up custom functions. This is version 1 of this empty plugin. The admin menu (with a submenu), a settings page, another settings page. You can do just about anything your heart desires with wordpress, and plugging into it is pretty easy. Check this out:
