Movalog Plugins Reloaded
Whenever there isn't an update for such a long time, you can be assured I'm working on something! This time round, it's a completely new Movalog Plugins Area and has several exciting features:
It addresses perhaps the number one complaint with my plugins, a lack of documentation! Well over the last two months or so, I've completely rewritten the documentation for every single plugin featuring much clearer installation instructions as well as detailing almost every area of the plugins complete with screenshots.
Downloading and accessing this documentation is presented in slightly a different way to the norm. You're now prompted to enter your name and email address and a link to the documentation emailed to you. These details will, of course, never be shared. I've taken this approach for one simple reason, to better track the usage of my plugins - in an attempt to identify which are the more popular ones and therefore where I should focus my energy.
Every plugin is compatible with Byrne Reese's Plugin Manager (currently in alpha). Plugin Manager - something I've been pining for ever since David Raynes wrote the first one - automates the process of installating a plugin (and keeping it up-to-date) and Movalog Plugins are fully compatible with it. Simply enter a plugin's URL into Plugin Manager and it will be downloaded and installed for you. Major props to Byrne for not only making Plugin Manager easy to use but easy to code for.
There are a few testimonials scattered across the site. I'd love to put some more up so if you use any of my plugins, I'd appreciate if you posted a comment (or dropped me a line, if you feel more comfortable with that) sharing your experiences.
Finally, the forums imploded. They desperately needed a facelift and upgrade and will hopefully be up soon. In the meantime, post to the Movable Type Support Forums which I check when I get a free moment.
So, what do you think?
