I have not written or published plugins before. I'm very interested in having a toggleable "show on frontpage" status for blog entries.
i.e. I'd like users to be able to bypass the frontpage if they are feeling timid about their post.
I'm wondering if anyone is using a plugin that handles this. If not, i'm curious what best practice would be for writing such a plugin.
My primary concern in writing this plugin would be that I would alter a table thus making my wordpress install incompatable with future plugins / upgrades
i.e. adding field show_frontpage boolean to the posts table
or .. creating a supporting table that contains primary keys of entries not-to show..
Thanks a lot
