I’ve just released my new WordPress plugin, Run External Crons.
Why this plugin? WordPress own cron is known for having issues in terms that it doesn’t run somewhere, leaving scheduled posts unpublished, backups not done, newsletters not sent, etc. Setting up crons on server is not user friendly task, and some hosts even don’t offer full cron support.
That’s where this plugins comes. If you have multiple WordPress sites, you can setup real cron on just one, install this plugin on it, and setup crons for others through it. You can actually setup for any type of cron, not just from WordPress.
Read plugin’s documentation for more information.
I’ve just released version 2.0 of my WordPress/bbPress plugin, bbPress Digest. This version incorporates two new features: weekly digest and one-click forum subscription.
Weekly digest means that administrators can enable users to choose should they receive digests once daily or once weekly.
One-click subscription means that administrators can enable users to include forums in digest directly from forums page, without need to go to the their profile page.
Both of this features are suggested by users so if you have one too, send them to me and they might be included in future versions.
I’ve released my simplest plugin to date, Descriptions as Captions in Galleries. This plugin is so small and simple that I have nothing more to say, except to direct you to its page.
My WordPress plugin, Gravatar Signup Encouragement, got an update. This version adds to new things under the hood and in some situations it may cause some issues, so here is what’s changed.
Previously, plugin depended on
allow_url_fopen to be enabled so that it can check if gravatar exists. Thanks to report by wp.org user jlencion, plugin will now check if
allow_url_fopen is enabled and if not, it’ll fall back to WordPress HTTP API.
After another report on wp.org forum by user Parakoos, plugin now checks for existence of gravatar of the same rating as chosen in site’s settings.
Please report if there are any issues with this new changes.
Rename Media Files isn’t technically a new plugin. It was in repository for almost two years, but it was unfinished, without proper promotion.
Today I committed a rewritten version with proper readme.txt and a screenshot so you can check it out.
