After a few years of distributing Clifton’s Lightbox Plugin via email, I decided to reach the masses and upload my plugin to the WordPress Plugin Directory. Also, I decided to drop the “Plugin” at the end of the name as it seems redundant having Clifton’s Lightbox Plugin within a Plugin Directory. I’m hoping to reach over 100 downloads in its first 24 hours in the repository.
Before uploading the plugin to the WordPress Plugin Directory, I made some changes and notched the version to 2.3.
- Added the option to hide the already discreet link in the lightbox footer.
- I removed the support Talk Fusion videos.
- I removed the update script that used my servers as a resource for updating the plugin.
You now have two ways of installing Clifton’s Lightbox.
- You can either download the zip file and upload it to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
- Or you can search for it from your WordPress Dashboard > Plugins > Add New. Keywords: Clifton’s Lightbox
I’m excited about this move and I hope that the plugin will serve many well.
