For quite a few years I’ve been working with WordPress. Mainly developing and designing sites, but I also like to help out in the mainly the Dutch WordPress Community. I’m the admin of WordPress NL and WordPress Fy, also administrator for the Dutch WordPress forum and doing my part for WordCamp NL. And I love contributing in that fashion. You know, in the spirit of giving back to the WordPress project. Even though that seems like quite a bit already, I really like to contribute more.
I’ve jotted down a few things I’d like to accomplish this year. My list regarding contributing to WordPress consists of the following:
Create a WordPress plugin that is of actual use to people
- Help out and contribute more on trac
- Create WordPress themes that people love and enjoy
Blog more about WordPress in English (again)
As you can see I’ve crossed through the first item on the list 🙂 I have released my first two WordPress plugins about a week ago and my also updated one of those plugins to version 0.2. Both plugins are very similar as they both add a menu to the Admin Bar introduced in the WordPress 3.1 version. I have created plugins for clients before, but none of them saw the public light. The two plugins I created add resources to either the Genesis Framework by StudioPress or WooThemes resources.
Feels good to see people actually download something I’ve created. I don’t care if it’s not in the thousands, but anything above 25 downloads is OK in my book 😉
Do check them out:
- Genesis Admin Bar Addition
- WooThemes Admin Bar Addition
I hope you enjoy using them as much I as have creating them.
Note: it’s been more than 12 years since I published this post and added this note. But, these two plugins are no longer published.
