I've just finished creating my first plugin for WordPress.
The purpose of the plugin is to create a header line when you are viewing search results (or date archives or category archives), that will tell you how many results there were & where you are in the results.
Showing results 1 - 10 of 45 for the search terms search terms.
You can download the code here:
To use it, all you need to do is install it in the plugins folder & then add:
to the page template wherever you want the search header to appear.
You can see it in action on any of the archive pages of my site at http://www.elginism.com
Let me know if you have any suggestions on how it can be improved, or any comments on it.
