it's a plugin called SexyBookmarks... i know... i didn't name it. it's not the first result in a google search. but i thought it to be a pretty well made plugin; designed rather nicely and cleanly and more or less functions like it's supposed to. when herman had some issues w/ the plugin a few days ago i started looking into it and got in touch w/ the developer, josh jones to propose some fixes. he seems like a really nice guy and even gave me some credit for some of the patches i made that made it in:
i'm still in contact w/ him hoping to get a few more changes in if they get accepted. doing wordpress dev on this plugin has kinda got my feet wet and i wanna work on some plugins of my own so maybe soon this site will have a section of my plugins.
i think the first plugin i work on will be to make a "via" plugin to give credits to artists/blogs herman's been asking for this functionality for a while. maybe there's a plugin for it already... i didn't search. in any case, i figure it should be a pretty easy plugin to start on. after i think i'll make my own facebook connect plugin because the ones i see out there don't work out of the box that well and i think there must be an easier way!
wordpress users out there... any plugin you want me to try to create?
i'm looking for ideas. we'll see how long this run goes or how long this slowness at work lasts.
