I created this blog in June 2011 with WordPress and for a couple of years I used plugins created by other people. However, as I started looking for more advanced functionality, I found that there were either no plugins which did what I wanted or, at best, did most of what I wanted, but not everything or things I didn’t like.
I’d worked in PHP previously (including writing my own MVC framework), and decided that I would have a go at writing my own WordPress plugins; by December 2018, I had a library of 25 WordPress plugins which are in the WordPress Plugin Repository.
In November 2018, I started looking at ClassicPress, a hard fork of WordPress, as a way of avoiding the new Gutenberg editor introduced in WordPress. In March 2019, I started rewriting the plugins specially for ClassicPress.
Code was improved, security enhanced and new functionality added; in addition, I also wrote several new plugins just for ClassicPress. All of my plugins for ClassicPress are listed below; clicking a tile will take you to my Development site which has details of the plugin:
