Well, after a couple of weeks of learning the Wordpress plugin architecture and a few weeks of neglect I have finally released my first Wordpress plugin, Community Submitted News. The purpose of this plugin is to let readers submit articles to a blog/website and create new content. This plugin comes with a full moderation panel and nothing is published to the blog/website until it is approved by an administrator for the site.
It was fun to get into the Wordpress plugin architecture and that was the primary reason for doing this. For the most part is was a pretty easy to use. There are some things about the plugin systems that I wasn’t a big fan of but I guess that’ll happen with any external system that you use. Especially when it has to be flexible enough to deal with so many different possiblities in the plugins and the people programming them.
