[closed] SocialStats: Need Programmers Collaboration for Plugin (2 posts)

    A plugin to collect, combine and display FeedBurner, Facebook and Twitter subscriber/fan/follower stats.

    Download and test plugin from here:


    I'm working on the plugin version of the following script:


    (with permission of it's writer of course)

    As you'll find out quickly I'm not a programmer myself, only a web and graphic designer. So when it comes to programming it's experimental and I usually need help.

    So if anyone agrees that this would make a great plugin and would like to collaborate (and receive an added credit of course) take a look at the code I have so far (zip file above).

    From a PHP programmers perspective you can probably see the basic concept of my attempt;

    - Settings page and option saving is working and in place
    - The code is being delivered to the front-end (perhaps in the wrong place)
    - However I'm sure there are some logic and syntax errors
    - The main problem I'm sure is that the attempted delivery of:

    <?php echo ss_feedburner; ?>
    <?php echo ss_facebook; ?>
    <?php echo ss_twitter; ?>

    to the front-end is incorrect for a number of reasons.

    The second main part is the PHP delivery of this code to front-end:

    $sum = ss_get_transient('rss') + ss_get_transient('facebook') + ss_get_transient('twitter');
    echo $sum;

    Which gives us our plain text total number.

    If I spent a little time on that I'm sure I could figure out the code to make it usable as a shortcode. But, if someone would like to collaborate that would save a lot of time.

    Also, if you think we should add LinkedIn and Google+, maybe YouTube or support for other sites let me know.

    Thanks, Bryan
