> Hey all,
> In the next few days, I plan to release a new plugin for Wordpress.  It
> provides a Wordpress interface to the Featurific website plugin, a plugin
> designed to provide main-page slideshows for featured posts - similar to the
> featured stories/products slideshows on time.com, walmart.com, etc.***
>  (See the end of this email for more info on Featurific).
> Although I am an experienced programmer, this is my first Wordpress plugin.
>  I've tested it and found it to work on Wordpress 2.3+.  However, I'm sure
> I've overlooked something.  Would you mind installing it on a test
> installation and providing any feedback you might have?
> Archive location:
> *http://featurific.com/files/FeaturificForWordpress.zip*
> Once activated, the plugin can be configured on the Settings -> Featurific
> page.  (I was going to put this page within the "Plugins" menu, but I read
> on Codex that the recommended location for config pages like this is in
> "Settings".  However, given recent list discussion, I'm no longer sure where
> to put the config page! :) )
> Anyway, thanks again for any feedback you might have,
> -Rich
> ***Some background on Featurific: The plugin is a flash-based
> gallery/slideshow that displays rotating screens of the host site's featured
> stories. (Similar rotators can be seen on msn.com, nationalgeographic.com,
> walmart.com, etc). Featurific requires a fair amount of configuration to
> get it working which is the motivation for this plugin. Following the
> awesome precedent of Wordpress' 5 minute installation, Featurific for
> Wordpress handles all configuration and installation when the plugin is
> enabled. However, power users are still allowed to tweak configuration and
> override any parameters.
