[Plugin: FLV Gallery] Skip This One – No Documentation.
Another Plugin with no documentation. Why do people take the time and effort to write a plugin, then provide a “hide and seek” approach for users trying to figure out how to use it?
75% of the FLV > settings page is blank. Plenty of room to slip in the directions explaining short code usage.
Once installed, there is no documentation on how to use the plugin. If you go to your ‘plugins’ page, and find flv-gallery – there are two links that go to a church site (which, by the way looks great, but I’m not in Georgia). You actually have to go to wordpress.org > Extend > plugins, and search for the ‘flv gallery’ plug-in page to find this:
[flvgallery video=”/path/to/videos/video1.flv” title=”Title for Video 1″ caption=”Optional Caption” thumbnail=”/path/to/thumbnails/thumbnail1.jpg” url=”” url_text=” url_icon=”” width=”400″ height=”225″]
Simple enough – but I use over 2 dozen plugins. How am I suppose to remember this? – Skip it, I’ll find another plugin.
Lack of basic documentation = failed plug-in.
