My first WordPress plugin, azurecurve Posts Archive is now available for download.
Full post on the release can be read here.
The plugin is available from the WordPress.org Plugins Directory and can also be found and installed directly from within the WordPress admin area.
I recently created a WordPress archive of my Twitter posts using the plugin and theme from Ozh.
Part of the theme was a sidebar posts archive which I quite liked the look of and have now extracted and turned into a WordPress plugin so I can use it on any site (including this one):
Check out the archive in action in the sidebar to the right below the Calendar and above the Tag Cloud.
I am thinking about releasing it via the WordPress Plugins Directory, but before doing so, wondered if anyone might be interested in doing some beta testing? It is a very easy install (upload to plugins folder, activate and then place widget in widget area) and currently has no options although I am willing to create some if necessary (such as the ability to change the display name).
The plugin only reads the number of posts and does not write back to the database so there is no risk.
If you’re interested in beta testing get in touch with me (by email if you have it or use the Contact page) and I’ll send you a download link (I’m not posting publicly as I want to keep numbers under control while it gets tested).
Apparently Twitter only allows you to download the last 3,200 posts you have made. While I am substantially short of this number at present, I thought it might be useful to keep an archive of these posts myself so I always had access to them.
The CMS I am most used to these days is WordPress and I recently came across a plugin and theme from Ozh which allows you to make an archive of your Twitter which looks like the new Twitter. This azurecurve Twitter Archive is now available; it has been themed to look very like my Twitter page but has all the functionality of WordPress.
