Where on earth is that programmer?
Its been a while since I last posted here so I thought I would do a quick roundup of what’s been going on and what you take look forward to in the future.
I spent all of september in France with my family. We stayed just outside of St Tropez on the riviera and I was forced to cut down my working, let alone blogging, to a minimum in account of the shocking Internet speed and lack of real computer with me. Needless to say though I did get some work done although more bread and butter than stuff for this site.
Since I have been back I have been working frantically to catch up with myself. I have been working on some pretty exciting projects though so lots of juicy code to offer up to the masses.
- Tell a friend widget
- Email widget with attachment functionality
- A variety of WordPress tutorials in the pipeline
Things I have done but you might not have realised are updates to my plugins in the WordPress repository, SB Uploader, SB Child List and Welcome Email Editor. Take a look at them on the WordPress site or if you are already using these plugins then check out your plugins page from the site they are running on and get he updates from there.
In short I have added widgets, shortcodes and generally neatened them up based on feedback I have had on here using the comments/contact systems and via the WordPress forums for each plugin.
A big thanks to all those people that got in touch with me for plugin help and WordPress advice. You have helped keep me awake during days when I am working on large projects and to those that have donated, once again, thanks for your support.
Remember I don’t add links back to my site in my plugins. I don’t add donate buttons or links to amazon wishlists and nor do I interfere with your WordPress sites in any way except for providing the functionality of the plugins I have written. This is because I feel that doing so is annoying and unsolicited. If you want to keep up to date with my plugin and WordPress work then check back here occasionally or add me to your RSS list. You will always be welcome.
I have a few ideas for plugins and my website to appear over the next few months.
This site will soon become Tortoise IT in domain name and in site name. A designer friend of mine has mocked up a logo and theme for me to build over Christmas and the site is going to be moving in that direction. As well as offering free plugins and support, it shall also be a portfolio of my work and hopefully result in a much better user experience.
I dare say I shall post a few more times before Christmas however if I don’t.. Happy holidays from me and the rest of the Barton family.
