Great plugin. I can see from this forum that this plugin has been given a new lease on life recently, and I'm really pleased it has!
As a follow on from my previous post (http://bit.ly/urXA1k), I'm thinking of ways BackupWordPress can be made available to users who aren't admin's. Fair enough if the bones of the setup are only available to someone with admin rights, but generally I'd want the end user to have access to the backup files so they can download them and take ownership of their own backups (especially when emailing them the whole file backup becomes unfeasible due to the file size).
So. Here are my suggestions. Apologies if they are already planned, but just take it as a thumbs up from me :)
- eMail Notification - Rather than send the whole backup, how about having the option to only send a text based email with a link detailing the backup files location. (Perhaps with the option of customising the message, so you can explain the volatile situation regarding the files existance in your own words.)
- Dashboard Panel - I like customising my clients experience when logging into the backend. I have a heads up display for Google Analytics and a notepad widget so I can communicate information to them via the backend. I think it would be great to have a dashboard plugin that displays the most recent backups and the option to download them.
Just my two pennies worth, but I think it would add a whole new level of functionality to an already great, and steadily improving plugin!
