We have been doing a lot of updates on our plugin recently to make our plugin as easy to install and use as possible. We would appreciate any feedback in this regard from the WordPress community. We welcome any suggestions you have as we continue to try to make it better. Thank you.
Since I’m still setting up my blog, I can’t tell you how easy it is to use the bar yet, but I can tell you about ease of installation, and it was pretty darned hard to find my Bar ID: I was clicking all over the Skysa site looking for it, and a couple of times, between page loads, I saw it flash by, and frustratingly, I couldn’t stop the page loading to get at it. I *finally* got it when I went to My Apps: Manage, but it shouldn’t have been that hard. It should have been the first thing I saw as soon as the ID was available, ie, as soon as I’d provided my site URL. Don’t hide it and make us hunt it down, kay?
The readme.txt file oughtta be readme.html so that we needn’t keep twitching to another app to read it. Since we’re gonna be working in our browser anyway, we may as well be reading that file in our browsers.
Otherwise, the menu *looks* really pretty! I’m off to go see whether I can edit its color. Thanks for the nifty little tool, and good luck in the future!
Thank you for the great feedback. The Bar ID has been added to the top portion of the bar manage area now, and is visible at all times while managing your bar on Skysa.com. The normal flow of bar creation should have landed you on the bar’s get code page, which shows the Bar ID; but I can see how if a user navigates to any other page of the bar manage area during the process, it could become confusing, as the the location of the Bar ID.
The readme.txt file must be in txt format, so the information can display on the WordPress plugin page. All the information in the file is shown in a nicely formatted way on the Skysa App Bar plugin page: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/skysa-official/ That being said, we will look into adding an additional readme file in HTML format if it complies with the WordPress plugin guidelines.
Again, thank you for the great feedback, and we hope you enjoy the Skysa App Bar!
I have just a little bit more feedback: I *loved* he ease with which I could modify the colors of the Skysa bar! I works very nicely and the breadth of options is awesome! The only quibble I have is that there’re times when I’m not altogether sure what, exactly, I’m modifying. *If* you can come up with a visual to show us the changes as we go along so we can see, on the fly, what our changes look like, that’d be just *too* awesome!
Failing that, slightly more descriptive descriptions will help out a lot. Thanks!
WRT the help.txt file, I guess I foiled you because whenever I download something, I immediately open it and peep what’s inside. As a looong (and I *do* mean loooong … I’m talking thirty years!) I like to open things and see what’s inside, hence my spotting the text file and reading it. My bad! I guess most users read it the way you intended for it to be read. I’m prolly an outlier. Ooops!
This is really a cool tool, and I can’t wait to have content (and users!) to be able to take advantage of it!
