Need Programmer's Collaboration for Plugin (5 posts)

    Download and test plugin here.

    I'm working on the plugin version of the following script:

    http://www.problogdesign.com/wordpress/how-to-get-facebook-twitter-and-rss-counts-wp/

    (with permission of it's writer of course)

    As you'll find out quickly I'm not a programmer myself, only a web and graphic designer. So when it comes to programming it's experimental and I usually need help.

    So if anyone agrees that this would make a great plugin and would like to collaborate (and receive an added credit of course) take a look at the code I have so far below.

    From a PHP programmers perspective you can probably see the basic concept of my attempt;

    - Settings page and option saving is working and in place
    - The code is being delivered to the front-end (perhaps in the wrong place)

    However I'm sure there are some logic and syntax errors. The main problem I'm sure is that the attempted delivery of:

    <?php echo ss_feedburner; ?>
    <?php echo ss_facebook; ?>
    <?php echo ss_twitter; ?>

    to the front-end is incorrect for a number of reasons. The second main part see below main plugin code.

    If I spent a little time on that I'm sure I could figure out the code to make it usable as a shortcode. But, if someone would like to collaborate that would save a lot of time.

    Also, if you think we should add LinkedIn and Google+ support let me know.

    Thanks, Bryan

    Yeah, I couldn't figure out what was going on. I kept cutting back the links even though they were relevant because I thought they were triggering the spam filter.

    I wouldn't even think it would be the code. Since this is the hack forum it didn't even cross my mind. I thought code would be protected as long as properly nested in code tags.

    Anyways, at this point if anyone wants to help out the least confusing thing is probably going to be to head over to:

    http://bryanhadaway.com/forum/web-tech-answers/socialstats-need-programmers-collaboration-for-wordpress-plugin

    where I have all the details put together in one place and reiterated to make more sense.

    Thanks, Bryan

    Nope :) Same spam kicker for every forum ;)

    Yeah, it would be a nice feature to isolate different forums and adjust filters accordingly depending on what will likely be going on in posts so it doesn't bounce legitimate posts.

    Maybe that would be epically more difficult to implement than said however?

    Thanks, Bryan
