Most Commented Posts Plugin

Most Commented Posts Plugin is a simple plugin for WordPress to show, as the name suggests, the most commented posts in your widgetized sidebar or any other area. There has been quite a number of similar plugins out there but we thought we would just add some features and make it a little different.

The main feature of this plugin is it shows excerpt of each posts and only one of them is visible at a time. The wonderful jQuery Accordion plugin comes into play to show only one and hide others with the accordion effect. You can also set how many posts you want to show from the Widget control panel.

Grab the plugin now.

Happy New Year 2010 to ya all!

Cheers,

SimpleX 1.3.2 now available

simpleX

SimpleX has been quite popular amongst the available themes at WordPress.org and it just crossed 41,000 downloads which is pretty impressive for a simple design like that. After almost a year of the last update on the theme and WordPress nearing to version 2.9 now this theme really needed an upgrade. The last update was made when WordPress 2.7 was available. Since then, WordPress has come a long way.

So, after looking at questions on forums and issues people have reported, simpleX has been updated to work with latest WordPress. The 2 issues that were fixed are:

  1. Fixed Tag Cloud (the new WordPress has a different class so were showing the cloud as a list)
  2. Plugin compatibility (plugins like Lightbox now work perfectly).

It was still using the old jQuery manually. Now it pulling new jQuery automatically from WordPress files which means there are no longer conflicts with plugins that use multiple JavaScript libraries.

On the other side, the file size has been greatly reduced from over 100KB to just 75KB. :)
