First-time plugin developer needs debugging help (2 posts)

    Hi guys,

    I finally screwed up the courage to create a WordPress plugin after years of playing with other people's code...and it's not working.

    Here's the plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/windy-citizen-share/

    It's very simple. It adds "Share" buttons for a niche social news site to the end of WordPress posts.

    There's also a simple admin page that lets the admin make a few changes to how the button displays.

    The code appears to be working on my 2.6 blog. But my 2.7 friends are having problems.

    1. How do people test WP plugins?

    2. Anyone have a sense of what's wrong with mine? I think it has to do with how the button code is being added to the blog. Something's not escaped properly.

    Thoughts?

    1 - Easiest way to test multiple versions is to build yourself a local install of WordPress. Xampp or Wampserver (among others) make it very simple to get the necessary environment up and going.
