WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Link your WPSE-Plugins

If you answered a question and made a plugin out of your code, than this is your place to share it.

The Idea: An old comment from @MikeSchinkel during the beta phase where he wrote something like "I wonder how many plugins will come out of WA".

"Rules"

  • Write a short - one line - description of what the plugin is intended to do.
  • Tell how it's meant to be used: Template Tag, Shortcode, Widget, Plug & Play.
  • Link to your plugins in an answer, on github/bitbucket/whatever or in the wp.org repo.
  • Please link one plugin per answer.
  • If you got some answers that would serve well as plugin, just modify your A and link it here.
  • If your plugin became a commercial plugin later, it's ok to post the link here.
  • If your plugin is not cc- plus GNU GPL 2-licensed, please mention the license.

Notes:


Important: About License

As to a lot of discussion about copyright & open source licenses1), i want to mention that these plugins run under the cc-license plus the GNU GPL 2-license, if the author didn't mention else.

1) Some related discussion examples:

I've seen a few concepts online for device detection, whether through using the server or via the templates. Running dedicated myself, do you have a good suggestion for a device detection script? –  shawn May 28 '11 at 21:14
    
@shawn To be honest: not really. I've looked at so many different classes and most do nearly the same. If you sort out those which are older than two or three years and compare some newer ones, it shouldn't be too hard to find what you want/need. –  kaiser May 29 '11 at 6:58
    
@ALL: Also: Try to meet @toscho in the chat and talk to him about this plugin before using it. He has more information about the pros/cons of this technique. –  kaiser Jun 17 '11 at 3:55
