So how's that rewrite coming?

I’ve converted most of the Post Avatar plugin into a class and added hooks for certain areas: the options screen and the write screen. My goal for this rewrite is extensibility. This idea is coming up more and more in WordPress land, particularly in themes, so I think plugins (which extend WordPress themselves) can do more for integrating with one another.

For Post Avatar what I want from the plugin is to simply choose from a library of existing images. Last year I rewrote the plugin from scratch to take into account: image uploads, tagging and a whole slew of features. It worked but I wasn’t completely happy with it and I felt it was taking away from what I originally designed Post Avatar for.

This time when I do put in uploading capabilities, user-centric post avatars and the like I’m going to be exploring methods of taking advantage of WordPress’s table structure and api.

Going back to this rewrite. The code is mostly ready – I’ll be releasing it for beta testing in a week or so.

  1. Hi,
    ..ive just updated my wordpress to version 2.7.1 and i have the plugin installed.. when i go to write a post i get the post avator and the “expand” button but it wont display the options.

    Is this a bug due to the upgrade? cheers!


  2. So how’s that rewrite coming? Do you have a rough date? I really like your plugin and the prospect of viewing the images from a library is an exciting one.

  3. Hey! Thanks for your great plugin! I’m just wondering, does your plugin automatically resize the avatars to a certain dimension, or is this something planned for a future release?

  4. hello

    I love your plugin, but wanted to know if there is a way of controlling the size and if the black border can be removed? Please help! Thank you x
