Updates about the “Simpler” plugins for WordPress

Hello world!

with 2 comments

The purpose of this site is to have a place where the “Simpler iPaper” plugin and other (future) plugins in the “Simpler Plugins” line can be distributed, can be documented, and can be discussed.

The development for the Simpler iPaper plugin is currently going on at Google Code. Find some bugs, fix some problems, or join the project.

I’ve also been considering not using WordPress.com for this blog, and instead using one of my own domains (or my PersonalLog blog hosting service, which has a name not suited to plugin development). However, it looks like I’ll be on WordPress.com for a while, at least until something urges me to move away from it.

  2. Hi, “Education”.

    First of all, whether you use single-blog WordPress or WordPress mu doesn’t affect the features.

    I’ll try to answer your questions to the best of my abilities.

    Will all the doc and pdf directly shown in Ipaper mode ?

    I think you are asking whether .doc and .pdf files will be automatically shown as iPaper. That is not currently a feature that is possible with this plugin, but it could be a planned feature for the future. As part of their tools, Scribd offers the tool to use JavaScript to automatically replace links to documents with an embedded iPaper version (by fetching the document and converting it). If this is what you are looking for, please submit a feature request at Google Code.

    Will there be uploaded to scribd or just shown in their flash player ?

    In order for Scribd to display a document, the document must be uploaded to Scribd — either your users on WordPress mu will have to manually upload them, or you can implement the JavaScript method so that Scribd can automatically fetch the documents (preventing the need for manual upload) and convert them.

    I hope I’ve helped.
