Originally created for a client’s site, our Button Shortcode plugin is simple and to the point. It has one purpose: to post buttons within post or page content without needing knowledge of code.
A Learning Exercise
Having never before created a plugin for the official WordPress.org Plugin Repository, we created our plugin as a learning exercise – and as a way to share with the wider WordPress community.
Although we have created plugins in the past for custom client sites, this particular plugin was fun, challenging, and rewarding in new ways. Supporting a piece of software that is used on websites beyond our control (or the control of our clients) is a much different experience than supporting a single-site plugin.
The plugin was developed by Lauren Pittenger. She wrote the original plugin, researched the guidelines for submitting code to the WordPress Plugin Repository, and updated the plugin code to meet the guidelines.
Available for Download
We are excited to see that others have a use for our tool. Our button plugin has been downloaded over 300 times and is being used on over 100 installs. That’s pretty cool.
