This is the page where WordPress Plugins designed by Old Castle Web Solutions will be made available.
Walking the Dog
This plugin installs a widget called ‘Walking the Dog’. This widget contains buttons to subscribe to the podcast ‘Walking the Dog’ by RSS or by iTunes. Also included is a special player for listening to the podcasts.
OCWS Admin Bar
This plugin adds extra functionality to your admin bar, so that OCWS features can easily be reached.
This plugin sorts out that irritating greeting at the right of the admin bar. This plugin has now been accepted as an official plugin on the WordPress.org site, so can be installed directly from the admin pages just by searching and finding.
OCWS Image Widget
This plugin adds a new widget to your WordPress installation, called ‘OCWS Image Widget’. This widget is a very basic widget that allows an image to be added. Currently, it requires the URL for the image to be added to the widget form, and then the image is just displayed at 100% of the width of the widget. Further refinements are necessary: 1. A means to upload a new image to assign to the widget. 2. The ability to resize the image so that it is about the right width for the widget.
OCWS Shortcode Newsbox
This plugin creates a shortcode, indicated by [newsbox]. This shortcode can have a number of attributes, including nbcolor and nbbgcolor, which are the text and background colors respectively. The plugin is in development only, and is not really ready for download. However, you will find the code on this next page. Feel free to copy it and make of it what you will.
Coming soon! A post navigation plugin.
