TAG | plugin
Well, I have recently been away and doing some freelance work that has kept me very busy. However, I did submit the plugins to WordPress and they were both approved. In many ways they are still “rough” even though I have added many updates. However, you should expect to see them hosted at the WordPress site soon!
In our last post we added more functionality to our plugin through the use of the jQuery.cookie plugin. This allowed us to keep of the user’s selection and maintain it throughout our site. This post is the conclusion of the wordpress plugin tutorial. Even though the bulk of the coding for this plugin is done, there is still more to do before releasing it to the public. Some of my thoughts on what else needs to be done follow.
In our previous post we added some very nice functionality to our plugin and for the first time in the tutorial actually saw jQuery being used to change the size of text within the body tag of our wordpress blog. We also noted that when the user changed pages, the text reverted to the original size. In this post we will be using a jQuery plugin to extend our plugin and make it much more useful.
Previously we setup the admin for our elasticFonts plugin and saw it appear in the admin. In this post we will add some functionality to the admin by allowing it to initialize, save values in the database, and retrieve values that are stored in the database. Thanks again to the developers at devlounge for some great ideas on this portion of our plugin.
