I am happy to announce that we are launching our first WordPress plugin in the next week or two. The plugin is called ‘Twitter User’ and was developed by Sarah, our resident WordPress Guru!

Twitter User

The plugin adds an additional field to a users profile in which they can add their twitter username. The user can then add this link automatically to their posts with a message of their choice and they can also style the link the way they want using a css class. We will be adding the option of adding an image instead of text too.

We would like to get some feedback from users before an official release therefore we are going to send this plugin to all BloggingTips Newsletter Subscribers tomorrow or Friday.

If this plugin interests you then please subscribe to our newsletter so that the file can be zip file can be emailed directly to you. You will then be able to speak to us directly in the forums about how the plugin can be improved :)

Let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks George. I have been using it on my personal blog to test it out. It's a simple plugin but it works very well and I'm sure many blogs will find it useful, particularly multi author blogs.

    I am going to start using it on BloggingTips once we have tweaked it a bit more :)
