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.

  1. Honored to have my name on this list. I fear with the changes Digg has made, it won't be for long, though.

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