I just created a new WordPress plugin that you can use when you have to compress the content in a FAQ or similar. Eg. when the information of your page is to long, you can initially hide content and show it when clicking on a given element.
As said above a common use case is a FAQ where the questions are visible and the answers are initially hidden. Have a look at this example: Use case:
Q1. This is the first faq question
A1. This is the answer for the first faq question.
Q2. This is the second faq question
A2. This is the answer for the second faq question.
Q3. This is the third faq question
A3. This is the answer for the third faq question.
Code for previous example:
<div class="ssh-question">Q1. This is the first faq question</div>
<div class="ssh-answer ssh-hide">A1. This is the answer for the first faq question.</div>
Get the Simple Show Hide for WordPress plugin from any of these locations: WordPress Download or GitHub
I recently started to play an old computer game called Planetarion. The last time I played was back in the late 90th/early 2000 and it still has the same look and feel. Of course it’s some of its charm but I could not resist to fix the most obvious flaws.
Another improvement was to shorten the title text which is shown in the browser tabs to get a good overview on which tab contains which page when you have several tabs open in your browser.
I recently got a support question on my plugin called UStream for WordPress which is a plugin for embedding UStream videos on you blog. The plugin did not seem to work after the WordPress 4.0 update and the user seemed to have at least one client who really needed it.
The reason behind the failure of the plugin was that UStream had changed the way you embed the video from object tags to iframe tags and the fix was easy. I updated my plugin, answered the user and she was happy. And if she was happy, I’m happy!
The WordPress community for the win!
What I want to say with this is not that I fixed this bug and “Hey, I’m so good”. No, I really want to give thumbs up for the community thing where you can get a lot, and I mean really a lot of functionality for free but also the possibility to give some back witch other can utilize on their WordPress driven sites.
I both use other plugins and on some of them I have reported bugs to the authors. I have in all cases gotten help pretty quickly and been able to continue to use their plugins and have not been forced to do the hard work of building these plugins my self.
There is one thing I want to encourage people to do when they use plugins they get for free and that is to give back a review of the plugin. Either by just mark the grade of the plugin or write a word or two what you think of it. This will help contributors to get their work used by even more people and probably make them put more effort in creating awesome stuff.
