People seem to have a lot of trouble following the directions included in my WordPress plugins and I cannot offer adequate support, so I’ve decided to make things a little simpler. I’ve taken a stock WordPress 1.2 distribution, installed and enabled all of my plugins in it, and I’m making it available for download. This includes:
- WP Style Switcher
- WP Photos
- WP Last Visit
- WP Grins
- WP Unformatted
- WP Mobile Edition
This also includes the winning styles from the WP CSS Style Competition, already installed for you.
Download (732 kB)
The archive is kind of big, so I’ve put it over on my TextDrive account. Hopefully I won’t run over my bandwidth limit. 🙂
I also updated the WP Style Switcher to include an option to display the list of styles in a drop down instead of as a list. The setting for this is in the plugin file.
You can download the new versions from my plugins page if you want to upgrade.
Alex, I’d be more than happy to mirror this for a little while to help aleviate any load. I have 50 gb/month transfer and I only use about 100 mb/month, send me an e-mail if you’re interested.
Thanks Mark, I appreciate the offer. I’ll definitely let you know if it looks like I’ll be running into trouble.
As a WP newbie that has already been helped by your plugins, I would be happy to mirror them too. I run the company, so I won’t get shut down for going over bandwidth. 🙂
Thanks Christine, that’s very kind of you!
It makes me sad that the Google AdSense bar has nothing but MT ads for me ;_;.
An excellent idea Alex. I’ve often read through the long list on the WP forum. As with the others I have plenty of bandwidth and space so mirroring would be no problem if you need it. By the way, that update to the “Since Last Visit” plugin. What are the advantages? Would people who have Java switched off be able to see the flags etc?
You are a beautiful man for doing all of this for us.
Thanks a bunch!
Great stuff! Just tried it out on a friend’s site and it runs a-ok. Thanks Alex!
As a user of WordPress, a user of one of the templates in your contests, and a usre with lots of bandwidth that he don’t use. I’d love to, and be honoured to also mirror your copy of the file. Cause I got alot of bandwidth and I don’t use much so the hosting company says that if I don’t use up the bandwidth at all they might cancel the account. Although I am getting along OK by visiting my site more often. 😀
Did you change your “big white fonts on dark blue pages” for old people on your blog page? They just stopped working for me on the blog page, although they still work on the individual pages.
Tested with IE 6.0, FF 0.7 and FF 0.8 on Win2k and WinXP.
Great idea Alex! 🙂
Tim, I didn’t make any changes that I know of. The style options still work for me.
Sheesh, must be gremlins in my computer — it is working again tonight.
Alex, thanks for your thoughtfulness and all your hard work.
FWIW, I have space and bandwidth to host the WP files too, if needed.
Thank you so much for putting this download together and making it available. I’ve long dreamed of a WordPress addition that readily made so many valuable plugins so readily available. This was HUGE for me.
Alex I just spotted in the readme for the updated “Since Last Vist” plug in that in step 2 you refer to “WP Grins” instead of “WP Since Last Visit”. Might confuse one or two.
WP Plugged-In Update
I’ve updated my WP Plugged-In download to include the new changes to WP Photos and WP Mobile.
WordPress Plugged In 1.5.1 Beta
I’ve created another “Plugged In” version of WordPress, this time of 1.5.1 that includes all my plugine fully installed and enabled. This has had only light testing, so I’m calling it a beta for now – user beware. 😉
Thanks Alex…I put your Mobile Edition plugin into production. Now you can see me on your mobile device with no slow downs.
