Plugin Wanted - Should Be Very Simple to Write - Interested? (3 posts)

    I'm looking to have some WordPress functionality that I don't see available anywhere else. Seems to me that it would be great to do a plugin for it. I think it would actually be extremely easy to write -- for someone who is comfortable with PHP, which I'm not, since I end up spending 15 minutes of research to accomplish even tiny little elementary bits of PHP. Someone knowledgable could probably whip the thing up in less than an hour.

    In a nutshell, it would just be a function one could put in a post, specifying a few variables, so that a bit of simple HTML would end up in the post. It's the kind of thing that might be usable by a lot of people, so it could get you some attention. Anyone interested?

    Hi

    I could probalby do this, but can you be more specific? Why can't you just put the HTML into the post?

    Nice to hear from you! I'd prefer to talk detailed specs offline. But I can give you a general answer to your question.

    The HTML is to be coded a particular way, and history has shown me that, with this thing I'm talking about, the way it needs to be coded can change over time. This kind of coding will be on many, many posts. Putting HTML directly into posts is just what I've done in the past -- and when the coding method changes, I've had to go back to every single post to make changes. I don't want to have to do that anymore. I want to be able to change the plugin code once and have all the posts change automatically as a result.

    Feel free to get in touch with me via http://marksmeritt.com/connect/ if you'd like to discuss further. Thanks again for writing.
