As a front-end web developer, I am regularly working with clients and fellow freelancers, to create a wonderful looking, well working website that fits the client’s needs. With that, I am working in the browser and utilizing tools and technologies to achieve these goals. When needs are greater than my knowledge allows or budget/time restraints are in place, plug-ins are utilized to help get the job done in the end. With the proliferation of WordPress as more than a blogging utility, many use needs have risen, and many smart developers have produced the tools to fill those needs. It is with this idea that I write this post.
If you are a WordPress user, whether as an end user or a website designer/developer, what are some areas in your use that you find yourself regularly needing filled? I would love to hear from you with some of your needs that you’d love to have a plug-in solution for. I am interested in expanding my knowledge and I feel that developing some plug-ins would be a wonderful way to go about this. However, I don’t want to just re-create, for example, another Twitter WordPress plug-in. I’d prefer to do what I can to help fill a unique need or one that hasn’t been well addressed.
So please, let me know of any ideas you have or needs you’d like filled, and I’ll see what I can do for you. Hopefully it results in a plug-in for you and others who have the same need.
