This post is to let you know that this plugin is going to be getting quite a few updates in the coming month, the first of which I’ve just submitted to WordPress.org. There’s two reasons for »

Gravity Forms Widget + Extra’s

21 November 2009 by Joost de Valk » - 31 Comments

I’ve been blogging about Gravity Forms before, and I still think it’s one of the best plugins to have been released this year, if not all time. In recent releases they’ve been adding and adding and adding incredible new features, showing that you really do want to buy the plugin and get all their updates. »

Comment Tracking in Clicky

So one of the things I’ve always wanted to do is use an Analytics tools API to enrich the data about a visit. Clicky is one of the few tools out there that have a well detailed API that allows you to push in extra data during the visit. The extra data bit I really »

Clicky Tracking for WordPress

30 October 2009 by Joost de Valk » - 47 Comments

The guys at Clicky recently wrote a post asking someone to re-develop their WordPress plugin. Since I have quite a bit of code lying around for what they needed, I emailed them and told them I’d be happy to build it. If you don’t know Clicky, you really should check it out, it’s a pretty »

Plugin Compatibility data now crowdsourced

27 October 2009 by Joost de Valk » - 11 Comments

One of the things Mark Jaquith and I talked about when Mark was on Press This a month back, in the episode aptly titled the Future of WordPress, was that Automattic would be adding a way for people to indicate whether a certain plugin was working for them or not, regardless of what the plugins »

WordPress Debug Theme

14 October 2009 by Joost de Valk » - 49 Comments

Warning: major geekery ahead! Sometimes you need to see what’s wrong with a WordPress install, and you need to see it fast. I’ve had a set of hacks around for a while to do that, but finally started combining it into a WordPress Debug Theme. This theme is quite simple for now, as it only »

Last nights Press This featured a very pleasant conversation with Aaron Brazell, also known as Technosailor, the author of the upcoming WordPress Bible. We discussed a lot of things, as usual, and as I promised in the comments on my previous Press This update, I’ve kept more notes so I can do this post and »

Sociable gets a new home

14 September 2009 by Joost de Valk » - 34 Comments

Over the last few months I’ve been doing a lot of work on my plugins. I’ve found out that with each new release, they get more users, which is good, and get more time demanding, which is unfortunate. Now with OrangeValley going so well, and the things we have planned there, as well as my »

Adding Sites to Sociable

16 July 2009 by Joost de Valk » - 54 Comments

While Sociable comes with a pretty large set of sites, there are always people that want to add their own. While this is pretty easy to do, you’d have to update the plugin every time it’s updated, which is quite often, so that’s not really a workable solution. Today, I’ve fixed that. I’ve just submitted »
