Most of you probably know Dropbox one of the most popular Web-based file hosting services out there. It is one of the few premium online services I pay for, not only because its a great product and dead easy to use, the Dropbox Team also set up an amazing Voting and Feedback tool to interact with their customers.
Because of popular demand I recently updated the favorite posts plugin I created a while ago. Since I do not have much time to spare, I wasn’t able to include all features that were suggeste by my readers, but I could implement two that were highly demanded:
- The plugin comes with widget support now
- You can display other peoples favorite posts now (for example on an authors page to display his or her favorite posts)
After writing several plugins (for my own website as well as some for my clients) which where rather limited in terms of flexibility and usefulness outside of the different projects, I decided to give something back to the WordPress community and write one available to the public. I made this decision some time ago but didn’t know what to create.
Until now. Some days ago one of my readers (Noura from noupe.com – great site if you are looking for inspiration) asked me if there is a simple way of giving each logged in user the opportunity to create a list of his or her favorite posts.
Since I couldn’t find any plugin that covered the topic I started programing one and now, “some” hours later I present you, without further ado, my first plugin: My favorite Posts
