I currently work for a company named Vivid Image and part of keeping the employees moving forward in their position we are given tasks called “Action Items”. Put simply, they are goals to strive to achieve specific to each staff member.
One of my current “Action Items” was to get involved in the WordPress community. If you are unfamiliar with wordpress, it is the content management system we current use at Vivid Image to build our sites on.
Yesterday I finally found some time to do so. “Yeah, I know it was Saturday”. Turns out I’m kinda a geek. 🙂
After registering with WordPress, I decided to go onto the Forums and see If I could help anyone out there. 2 hours later, I had responded to several threads and hopefully helped many members.
Last night I decided to post one of the many plugins I wrote to see if anyone could use it.
It has now been around 12 hours since I posted it. I has been downloaded 132 times and currently holds a 4 star rating. If you would like to see for yourself, you may check out the details and download it at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/advanced-sidebar-menu/.
It is my “Aparently soon to be famous” Advanced menu plugin, which I have currently used on 3 sites I have built and looks like it may be part of over a hundred sites others are building.
If I can find the time, I will probably post my Go Live plugin later today……. Stay Tuned for a plugin on WordPress called “Go Live Update Urls”
