Due to the immense demand for Sharebar updates, I’ve started working on a major update to the plugin that I hope to release sometime next week. If you have a specific feature request or bug fix, please comment on this post with your feedback and I will try to implement what I can.
More than 800 new plugins have been added to the WordPress Plugin Directory since my November coverage, showcasing the best of these new WordPress plugins. This month, we take a look at 15 more plugins that add some pretty cool functionality to your blog!
I’ve just finished an update to the Sharebar WordPress plugin that adds color selectors for the vertical widget, new ShareThis buttons and a switch to the Facebook Like (from Facebook Share) button. I had planned to have AJAX loading of buttons finished with this release however it’s proving to be a bit more difficult than I originally expected.
What can I say, I’ve been in love with Google Chrome since they day it was released. I resisted using it until extensions were added, as I was highly dependent on my Firefox plugins as a web developer. As Chrome gets more and more popular, tons of great extensions are being developed that have made it one of the (if not the) best browsers around.
I’ve just updated Sharebar to version 1.1.3, which adds support for disabling the Sharebar widget on individual posts and pages. After you update the plugin, a new option panel should appear in your post and page editing screens at the bottom of the right sidebar – just check that option to disable Sharebar for that post!
When I last wrote about my favorite new plugins in July, there were approximately 10,500 plugins in the official WordPress Plugin Directory. Four months later, that number has reached nearly 12,000! The following is a list of the best I’ve found from these new plugins, be sure to check them out:
After reading about Jason Cohen’s latest startup, I started thinking about the plugins I install in every WordPress blog I run and what I recommend to my clients. Below are a list of my must-have plugins for pretty much any blog, take a look:
The real beauty of WordPress is the immense community of developers behind it. Several plugins are created and added to the official plugin directory every single day, which now catalogs nearly 10,500 in all! Here is a list of some of the best new ones.
Sharebar adds a dynamic and fully customizable vertical box to the left of a blog post that contains links/buttons to popular social networking sites. For wide blogs, a vertical bar with popular sharing icons appears on the left of your post. If the page is resized, the vertical bar disappears and a horizontal sharebar appears under the post title.
The jCollapisble plugin takes any nested list (OL or UL that have children) and coverts it into collapsible threads. This is especially useful to create simple threaded comments on a blog or nested posts in a forum without having to modify the backend code.
