Plugins

Plugins are little bundles of functionality that can be created by anyone and ‘Plug’ ‘in’ to WordPress to add functionality that may not be available by default.

Peoples Geek is the author of a number of plugins, some released publicly on the WordPress repository and some are custom built specifically for client needs.

Here is a small selection of the most popular ones – some are released publicly and available on the WordPress repository, some are private but I am happy to talk about sharing information, and some are private at the moment but will be public in the future.

When building plugins I use and highly recommend the following resources, the kindle version is great if you travel a lot and always want it handy, the physical book is great if you are usually in the one place and enjoy writing in margins etc.
