You’ll have to pardon my nerdy excitement but I’ve finally created my first official plugin for WordPress, Disqus Popular Posts. I’ve created a lot of plugins over the years for WordPress but none officially hosted with WordPress. They’ve always been one-offs that I created as needed for myself and customers (I’m a PHP programmer for a web hosting company). So, I never had the need to get it officially hosted with WordPress before.
This plugin was something I created for fellow Disqus users who want to show their most popular content by comment count. There was an existing plugin like this already but it’s outdated. I wanted to create an updated version that’s maintained and that offers more features than the one I found did. I created this out of my own need and, like many fellow programmers, I decided to share it with everyone, hence the official setup of the plugin with WordPress.
Anyway, I’m just stoked to have something I’ve created up there. If you’re interested, and didn’t click the first link I provided, you can find the plugin here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/disqus-popular-posts/. Make sure you give me a nice vote ;)
