Post By Email weekly update

Last Friday, I met with Justin and George to talk through the details of the project proposal.  Here is the final version with revisionsRevisions The WordPress revisions system stores a record of each saved draft or published update. The revision system allows you to see what changes were made in each revision by dragging a slider (or using the Next/Previous buttons). The display indicates what has changed in each revision. from that conversation.

I spent Monday and Tuesday moving apartments, so just a short update this week.  🙂

This first couple days has mostly been about getting oriented and comfortable with the tools.  I created the skeleton of the new pluginPlugin A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to your WordPress websites. WordPress plugins are written in the PHP programming language and integrate seamlessly with WordPress. These can be free in the Plugin Directory or can be cost-based plugin from a third-party and committed it to the svn repository (and by the way, the in-progress, up-to-the-minute code for this plugin will always be available on the svn repository).  Right now it’s just a straight port of the code from mail.php and is mostly untested.

Next steps:

  • Use plugin options instead of global options
  • Add activation hook to copy existing global options over to plugin
  • Create a settings/status page for the plugin
