Just gotta luv these emails:
Your plugin hosting request has been approved.
Within one hour, you will have access to your SVN repository at
I received the above earlier this morning; and, for my readers who also follow me on twitter, this is what I was tweeting about yesterday. The first pass to a fully functional plugin was a little under 90 minutes. Although I did spend the rest of the day, on and off, tweaking and adding additional functionality until you now have the initial release just committed to the WordPress Extend Plugins repository: BNS Twitter Follow Button.
Here is the plugins description:
A widget to allow you to set the parameters of the Twitter Follow Button found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/followbutton. This widget also creates a shortcode that can be used in posts and pages. Also to note, each instance of the shortcode or widget can use a different Twitter name so you can have multiple Twitter accounts listed on your website.
Enjoy! … and please feel free to leave comments with your feedback, too.
