Développements

WordPress is widely used today as a blogging platform, and CMS. For me the two keys of this success are

  • The tool is user friendly: you can quickly write posts, and publish them, without specific IT knowledge,
  • And the tool is opened for developers: it’s easy to understand how to develop a theme, or a plugin.

The second point made me a WordPress fan. At the beginning, I made some developments (my theme), mainly out of curiosity. Then, I developped some plugins for my own needs, and at the end, I published them.

Plugins

EG-Series

EG-Series helps you to promote your posts, by organizing them in another way than dates, categories, or tags. The plugin provides a set of easy and ergonomic functions to manage series of posts. EG-Series allows to create, delete or rename series, and add/remove the posts into series. It also includes widgets and shortcodes to display list of series, or the list of posts belonging to the series of the current post.

EG-Attachments

WordPress doesn't give an easy way to display list of attachments in the posts. EG-Attachments is basically a shortcode, that can be manually or automatically be added to your posts, in order to display list of attached files. EG-Attachments can be configured with a lot of options, and provides an easy way of inserting shortcode, with a TinyMCE post editor integration.

EG-Archives

When I started this blog with WordPress, I developed a small piece of code to display list of archives in a compact way. The list was displayed by grouping the posts by year and then by month, according to a pivot year. Some of you ask me to include this code into a plugin. EG-Archives provides a widget and a template tag, and allows to display the archives in this mixed mode, between annual and monthly frequency.

Themes

Coming soon.
I will publish this theme, when it will be stable.
