Plugins I've Developed

BetterWPMail (current version: 0.5)
I was never fully satisfied with the way WordPress emails (notification of new comment or moderation required) looked, so I wrote my own.

BetterWPReadMore (current version: 0.2)
WordPress formats the "read more" links horribly (you can read more here). So, I wrote this semi-hacky little plugin to give you four customization options: add a title, append to the end of the paragraph, remove the #more-xxx link, and remove the <a id=""> link.

PPEndLoop (current version: 1.1, for PixelPost)
Allows you to use "Previous" and "Next" buttons in your PixelPost photoblog without the looping that exists when using ImageCycle.

  2. 3 years later, and Akismet is still on top of their game and a must in my opinion for any WordPress blog.
