This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

YD WordPress Plugins Framework


Create new plugins quickly

This simple plugin development framework makes it super easy to create sophisticated custom plugins and widgets for WordPress 2.9+.

Please be aware that this is just an empty framework: when installed “as-is”, the plugin will not do anything.

It is just a base toolkit on which to build up actual features.

Compatible with PHP5.

This framework is used by all recent and upcoming [YD plugins]( WordPress Plugins by Yann Dubois). File versions should be consistent between all installed YD plugins.

Active support

Drop me a line on my YD Recent Images plugin support site to report bugs, ask for specific feature or improvement, or just tell me how you’re using the framework.
It’s still in an active development stage, with new features coming out on a regular basis.
