We’ve had quite a few requests for a WordPress plugin that works with ProofBuddy. And it is on our wish list. Catch is the requests have always been for a WP plugin without much else.
So the question for today is, if there were a WordPress plugin that interacted with ProofBuddy, what would you want it to do?
Here are my thoughts, roughly in order of likelihood. Let me know what you think in the comments if this is close to what you would like to see.
Shortcode for WP pages / posts
This is what I’m guessing most of the requests were after. Basically some way to insert a gallery from ProofBuddy in to a WordPress post. Maybe something along the lines of [ pbGallery passcode=123 ] that would pull a gallery out of the ProofBuddy database and insert it into a WordPress post.
Done correctly, this would allow you to basically wrap ProofBuddy inside of your WordPress theme and your visitors may not even have to know they’re using ProofBuddy.
Possibly a dashboard widget for WordPress that displayed info about your ProofBuddy albums when you login to wp-admin. Something similar to what’s in the ProofBuddy dashboard already where you could see sales, image counts, that sort of thing.
Some sort of interface that would let you insert an image that you’ve already loaded in to ProofBuddy without having to upload again.
Not sure how this one would work though.
Most of the really great features that have made their way in to ProofBuddy have started as a request from a user. Y’all are the ones using ProofBuddy every day with your clients and know all of those little nit picks that could make it better, and we truly appreciate any input you may have.
