WordPress Core, WordPress Plugins

10up just released a new plugin called the Post Customizer. I, along with John James Jacoby, John Bloch, Drew Jaynes, and Carl Danley led the charge on the plugin. The idea of the plugin is to mimic the theme customizer for posts. The plugin adds functionality that displays an overlay when you click “Preview” within the post editor. The overlay has a sidebar allowing you to edit the excerpt and featured post. In the middle of the overlay is a frame that shows the front of the website. Within that frame you can edit the post title and content. This enables you to make “live” changes and to see how they look as you make them. There are other plugins that offer similar behavior. However, Post Customizer closely follows the Theme Customizer and thus WordPress standards.

We want to make this plugin super extensible, and we need all the help we can get. We would appreciate contributions! Fork the plugin on Github.

WordPress Plugins

Hey Everyone!

I wanted to let everyone know about a new WordPress plugin called Safe Redirect Manager. I am one of the main developers of this plugin, and it has just been released on WordPress.org along with WordPress.com VIP (which is quite a special honor).

So what is the difference between this plugin and all the other redirect management plugins? Well, this plugin is simple, safe, and straight to the point. Instead of using the WordPress options table to store redirects, it uses a custom post type; this is much more flexible and lighter on your server. The plugin has been tested and reviewed by multiple WordPress core contributors and is available on WordPress.com — in order for a plugin to be available on WordPress.com it must be extremely secure. Safe Redirect Manager also allows you to use regular expressions in your redirects (if you don’t know what this is, don’t worry it’s an optional feature).

P.S: If you are a developer, Safe Redirect Manager is available to be forked on Github.

Edit: Thank you Branco Radenovich for the Slovak translation. This will be included in version 1.6.1 of the plugin.

Hey Everyone,

I’m starting a full time job for 10up as a Web Design Engineer. Exciting! In light of the new job. I’ve decided to change up TaylorLovett.com and move the blog to the front page. Soon I am trying to completely redo this site as it has gotten a little outdated.
