Where has TDO Mini Forms plugin gone?

I haven’t been updating or working on this WordPress plugin of mine for a while now. And it seems it has been removed from the WordPress.org plugin directory. I’ve put up a temporary mirror link on the page here for it for those desperate enough to want it now. However an exploit was reported against […]

Pet Projects, TDO-Mini-Forms and Forums

Following on from my previous post (“for fun or for success”), I keep thinking about a blog post I read from Jeff Vogel called The Bottom Feeder: Three Reasons Creators Should Never Read Their Forums. If I have learned anything from writing Indie games for a living for fifteen years and there are plenty who […]

Working on a Taxonomy Widget for TDO Mini Forms

I started looking at Elio’s patch for supporting custom Taxonomies with a view of rolling them into the core of TDO Mini Forms. But looking at a little further, I figured it would be better to create a new widget rather than modify the Categories widget. A new clean widget that properly supported taxonomies would […]

An alternative to TDO Mini Forms?

I always thought if there was a decent alternative to my wordpress plugin TDO Mini Forms, that I would properly retire the plugin. Well it seems there may be: Gravity Forms. As it says on the website: “the WordPress form management plugin you’ve been waiting for”. The catch? You have to pay for it. And […]

You want Custom Taxonomies in TDO Mini Forms?

While I’ve been on holiday and not doing anything on TDO Mini Forms, others have been quite busy: How to use custom taxonomies in TDO Mini Forms (from ilovecolors). TDO Mini Forms is one of the best plugins for WordPress to allow visitors or users to publish posts and upload files without having to access […]

Fix for TDO Mini Form’s drag’n’drop issue in WordPress 3.0 coming

Got to the bottom of not being able to drag and drop in my TDO Mini Forms plugin after WordPress 3.0 upgrade. The fix will take a bit of time to do as it requires a little re-engineering of the Create Forms screen. The problem occurred because with WordPress 3.0, they also updated their jQuery […]

Run for cover WordPress 3.0 has arrived and TDO Mini Forms mostly works!

I’ve just spent a good hour updating all my sites to the latest drop of WordPress 3.0 (I’m amazing I’m running so many, anyway…). As far as I can tell TDO Mini Forms is still mostly working okay. Certainly you can upgrade right now if you’re security conscious. Submitting post and previewing seems to be […]

Forgive me Internet, for I have been lax. It has been over six months since I did any work on TDO Mini Forms…

Even finding time to write this blog post is problematic, having to push it into the few spare minutes during my lunch break. I simply have not found the time to work on TDO Mini Forms. Well that’s not entirely true, I haven’t found time and motivation this last six months. Part of the problem […]

The answer to my question: WordPress “Press It” feature

I asked, not too long ago, if anyone had suggestions on sharing stuff from google reader in a nice way into WordPress. No-one answered and I didn’t find any solutions myself. However, I did come across this plugin for WordPress: Quick Post. It didn’t install properly when I tried it, but I played with it […]

Suggestions for how to share stuff from Google Reader in a WordPress blog?

I know of plugins that can take your Google Reader Shared Items and automatically generate a post for you. (I was using this one and it’s quite good). This is nice, but doesn’t actually make a great post. I know you can setup a “Send To” in Google Reader to post items from Google Reader […]
