I wanted to get your opinions on my first plugin. http://dabzo.com/totally-tabular
It creates a sidebar and a shortcode.
users add widgets to the sidebar and then add it where they like in their theme, or post with the shortcode.
The shortcode outputs the widgets in the sidebar as a tabbed-area which begins by cycling through the tabs, then stops when one is clicked.
you can put every widget i’ve tested so far through it.
I still need to namespace some css/js & I’d like to elaborate on the admin-page (currently you can overide the default rotation speed of 1/2second with a different value) to include color-pickers & advanced options, such as fixed positioning a button for the tabbed area to one side of the browser and having it pop-out when wanted, or having top and side-tabbed styles available and adding multiple tabbed sidebars would also be cool.
I’d like to get this puppy in the plugin directory as well, but it hasn’t been processed yet (and i submitted it before it was really complete, so they may be ignoring further applications with the same name.)
Critiques are much appreciated!
I know this plugin has been done (https://wordpress.org/plugins/tabbed-sidebar-widgets/) in the past, I’m hoping to take this great idea a few steps further.
You haven’t indicated on http://dabzo.com/totally-tabular which license this plugin is released under.
Oh, ok! I didn’t know I had to, it’s in the readme, gpl2 I’ll add that, thanks!
Thanks. For various reasons, we restrict the promotion of themes & plugins on these forums to those released under GPL. 🙂
