My code… kinda still sucks.

Forwarded from the FanPress blog:

I am going to bug you once again about my need for more feedback, because the truth is that I really need it.

I worked tonight on a few, minor improvements to the plugin’s code. Also, I tried to reproduce the problem that some users have reported: not being able to save the fanlisting’s URL (a post metadata value that is essential for this plugin to work). However, I have been unable to. My own installations of FanPress work perfectly, all data being saved as it should. So, I need more people willing to install and try this plugin on their own WordPress environments, to gather more information about the problem and its source, and ultimately, try to resolve it.

To anybody who reads this, if you are a WordPress user, even if you’re not into fanlistings, I would appreciate that you helped me test this. I don’t want to release another version of FanPress until I have demystified this issue. If you decide to help, please contact me so we can exchange information.

Thank you in advance!

The thing is, I am frustrated. I haven’t been able to deliver the product that I wanted to, and that makes me feel bad for the people who were expecting it. This is not the first time I fail, and I want to do something that really works and can help others with similar interests and/or needs!

*Le sigh…*

Well, I tried to integrate Enthusiast 3 with WP, and it was a pain, so I gave up on it. I am building a new list of the fanlistings I’ve joined at this page, making use of WP’s links feature. However, I think it might be better to do this with custom post types and taxonomies for better control. So, if anybody shows interest, I’ll actually take my time to work on it and distribute it as a plugin.

Still, note that the focus will be on listing the fanlistings themselves, not hosting fanlisting sites; I think the latter would be a waste of time, with so many good fanlisting scripts out there, such as Dee’s awesome¬†vs.hive. Plus, you can easily build your own with WordPress itself (I can probably write an entry with my thoughts on this later). So, yeah. If you’re interested, please let me know. The more people who show up, the more motivated I will be. ;)

Edit: So, regardless of no interest being shown yet, I started working on this out of my own need for it, and it’s coming along nicely. In fact, the custom post type and taxonomy was piece of cake (nothing but a couple of hooks and functions), but now I must make the proper templates and shortcodes to display the fanlistings.

See? For real.


Update: This is how it looks now.
