    Thank you for your kind words. I’m working on a new version with a front end shortcode, please tell me if you want to try a beta-version (would be great if you can try it and tell me if anything needs to be fixed).

    Yes, I would be happy to.

    Please download beta version from github repository address:

    https://github.com/dreamsofmatter/wp-project-tasks/archive/master.zip

    and let me know how it goes.

    Shortcode is [project-tasks]

    I downloaded the zip and used FTP to place it on my server. I then activated the plugin.

    I placed the short code on a page – here’s the URL- http://cos.nyghtfalcon.com/pm-test/

    However, in the backend, there is no way to add tasks or projects and the icon next to project-task is just an “X”.

    Should this version be uploaded with the current version?

    Please put the files inside the zip-file in a directory called ‘project-tasks’ in the wp-plugins folder and activate the plugin again.

    That worked.

    OK, here’s what I have found so far. When I click on add from the front end, I get the pop up but the options don’t display correctly. Here’s the URL again so you can see what’s happening.

    A couple of suggestions:

    1. Could there be an option to create a template? Our projects all have the same 10 steps and a template would be a great way to streamline the process of adding new tasks.

    2. Could it be possible to group tasks into a project?

    3. Could an option be added to notify a group of people as the status of tasks changes?

    Seams like http://cos.nyghtfalcon.com/pm-test is a blank page?

    Also, public visitors need to login to be able to use the plugin generated by the shortcode (if not logged in they see a link to a login-page). Every user needs to be setup as a WordPress User (subscriber is ok).

    Yes, task templates is a great idea, I’ve been working on that some time but it still needs many more hours.

    Yes, group tasks into a project is also a great idea, I call that sub-tasks and I’ve been working on them some time too. They too need more hours.

    Notifications can be done with hooks, I’ll try to add them later.

    So, to become the plugin you need I would probably need 40-50 more hours of coding. Unfortunately I don’t know when that would happen since I have a family to support and pretty much no time to work pro-bono.

    I hope you can find what you’re looking for.

    If you think the shortcode functionality works ok, I’ll update the WP Respository version.

    Take care,
    Klas

    No worries. I was making suggestions – I am very happy with it as it is.

    The page shouldn’t be blank. I might have permissions set so you can’t see it if you are not logged in. I will check permissions and email you back.
