General Recommendations for GlotPress WordPress Plugins

At the GlotPress weekly chat last week and this week, a group from the community decided to work on an experimental plugin that moves GlotPress code into a WordPress plugin. In doing so, they expect that there will be future WordPress plugins that are meant solely for integrating with the GlotPress 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.

During the chat, a couple of recommendations were proposed:

  1. WordPress plugins built solely for GlotPress should use “gp” at the start of their plugin slug for easier identification.
  2. Similarly, these plugins should add the “glotpress” tag to their Readme file for easier discovery.

Again, these are just recommendations and not requirements for any plugin in the directory. If you’re a plugin developer that’s interested in GlotPress-the-plugin, read through the summary and get involved!
