A Custom Fields UI I think really custom fields with custom UI is really a big requirements for a lot of people. I mean, compulsory, repeating, grouped, multiple images, etc. There is a bunch of plugins trying to provide the functionality, but they are all add-ons and have to play catch up to new WP features every time. Magic Fields seems reasonably good ...

Post / Page Relationships The ability to relate one post to another is definitely functionality I find myself needing quite a lot on more advanced client websites using Wordpress. The ability to relate a post to another post or page is something that should be in the core. I know Mike has had some involvement on the Wordpress trac in relation to pushing ...

These are the features currently on my short-list: 1) Media Management I would like to see development/improvement of Media Management given priority status for some near-future release, such that the "Media" post-type assumes analogous feature-parity with e.g. the "Post" and "Page" post-types. Media should have a proper taxonomy system. Media (and ...

My number 1 feature would be to have the ability to use WordPress to manage a fan page. It would have to have the ability to use a WordPress page to create a Facebook page application tab. Published posts would auto publish to the Facebook wall and comments would sync between WordPress and Facebook.

The first thing to remember about the post editing screen is that everything (except for the post title, editors, permalink, etc.) is a meta box. Since you can easily add and remove meta boxes, there's no need for CSS and JS hacking. Don't want the standard post format to show up? Remove the default meta box and roll your own. First hook into ...

This will get you most of the way there, but the actual search is not perfect. It would be great if someone who knows more about $wpdb can help get a better result. If this is my original post title: SOPA is dead, woot! Then just a title of "SOPA" will find it, as will just a title of "is dead" but not "Ding dong, the witch is dead" or "SOPA is a bad ...

Your theme must indicate that it supports post thumbnails: if ( function_exists('add_theme_support') ) { add_theme_support('post-thumbnails'); // If not the standard size, state your size too set_post_thumbnail_size( 200, 200, false ); }

Fully Supported Admin Themes WordPress admin themes are currently only partially supported. Although it is possible to change the look of the admin by changing the CSS files, it is not possible to change the HTML without changing the core source code of WordPress. This is the reason why there isn't a lot of WordPress admin themes out there right now and the ...

It's all site-dependent. I have a few core things I build in to any theme's functions.php though: Change logo on admin page to suit the client's company Hide WP-Stats smiley graphic Hide WP.me short URLs and replace with their chosen provider Add option for Twitter, Facebook, and Buzz buttons and ability to pull in Tweets Google Analytics option Minify ...

I would like to see dynamically expanding detail boxes, so you can provide optionally more details on specific areas of experience (such as a code snippet, or more complicated project information) should the interested party wish for more. That way you keep it simple and clean yet show them there is more under the hood should they wish to see it.

Custom Post Statues. The ability to define new post / page / post type status's rather than just draft and published. I do believe this is underway though! I'd like to use this to create a new type, called block. Then create content blocks that are related to pages, but not published in feeds, or publicly accesible directly. Defining Thumbnail Crop ...

Unless you encode your code, you can't protect a plugin that bundles both versions but works differently based on... settings. Maybe amateurs will consider this a roadblock but I'll hack it viciously in a couple of minutes and unlock everything (that'll never happen as I write all my plugins... just sayin'). Only way to do it is by encoding the plugin code ...

You alluded to this in your comments, one way is to provide an API key for your plugin, that way your clients are actually paying for support and updates and not code, it's really one of the only decent ways to go about this. For example if their API key is not valid or expires they do not get access to your private forum or any plugin updates ( you would ...

Based on your comment: Because if something ends up in that format, the templating will come out wrong(to varying degree depending how customized the other formats are), and there's no good way to determine that without visiting every single post and just knowing it's supposed to be in some other format. There's also no reason to template standard at ...

You can try something like this: <!-- The Post Thumbnail function is active by default, but this line of php will make it display.--> <a href="<?php the_permalink(); ?>" title="<?php the_title_attribute(); ?>" target="_blank"><?php if ( function_exists("has_post_thumbnail") && has_post_thumbnail() ) { ...

The easiest way is to use the plugin TinyMCE Advanced. Enables the advanced features of TinyMCE, the WordPress WYSIWYG editor. In its configuration page (Settings > TinyMCE Advanced), you'll find this option: That option will convert the pop-up window of the "Insert/Edit Link" button into this:

How about building the needed wordpress media UI for the new gsoc stream wrapper API project for rtmp/rtmpe servers. http://wiki.github.com/jmstacey/wp-stream-wrappers/ My problem is that I keep all my video content on separate flash communication server clusters as I do a lot of live video broadcasting. One thing that drives me and my customers nuts about ...

Repository Configuration The more and more I use Linux Derivates, the more I wonder why things are that tightly coupled to the webmasters of wordpress.org. The Repository for example. There only is one. What would be cooler for supporters and admins to configure their own Repository? So to offer Add-Ons like Themes and Plugins they take care of for their ...

You have to use the correct handle: wp_localize_script('page_data', 'glr_dt', $gallery_js_data_array); // Edit Your code is also wrong. What do you want to do in this line: 'maxPages' => '$gallery_max_load = $gallery->max_num_pages;' You are assigning a string to maxPages. I guess you want it that way (or similar): 'maxPages' => ...

There are some essential tools used on a daily basis that I think would really help WordPress developers out. These are so essential on most sites I believe they do not belong as plugins. Form API - Every site/framework/CMS has form handling of one kind or another, WordPress has none. Media API - A robust media API especially for management and user ...

It would be nice to be able to manage your facebook "/pages/city/companyX" page from one WordPress install (instead of coding a seperate solution see e.g. http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rational/tutorials/r-face/) this would enable customers (who all want to be on facebook) to have more or less one entry to manage things. My number 1 feature would ...

Are you talking about the hovercards for gravatar users? It's available on WP.com, not for self-install sites. However, there's a fairly easy hack to get it working anywhere. See this article: http://ottopress.com/2010/gravatar-hovercards/

Galleries 1. Currently you don't get the "Gallery" tab if you haven't uploaded a minimum of 2 images to a post. So it's impossible to use the media library files to build a new gallery. For some (unknown) reason there's support for adding the same images (or other files) to multiple Posts, but you can't build galleries from posts that already exist. 2. ...
