BNS Featured Category Version 2.6

Posted by Edward Caissie on March 29, 2014 in News, WordPress |

There were some interesting requests and a few discussions since the last release of this plugin and I have adopted some of those into this version.

Also to note, this plugin will also likely be going into a more “mature” development cycle which basically means I will be looking at twice yearly releases going forward.

Obviously if there are any significant issues or really great (easy to implement) ideas that come up sooner then I may simply jump on them and release sooner than planned.

In the meantime, here is the latest change log:

New Plugin: BNS Theme Details

Posted by Edward Caissie on February 18, 2014 in News, WordPress |

I have been looking for something that would make keeping my theme pages a bit easier to keep up to date when I came across a little code snippet in the WordPress Theme Reviewers Mailing List … one thing lead to another and the BNS Theme Details plugin was born.

Please feel free to read a bit more about it on its page here, or better yet download it from the WordPress Plugin repository here.

You are also welcome to review/fork/watch/star the GitHub repository for BNS Theme Details as well.

Going Forward Into 2014

Posted by Edward Caissie on January 4, 2014 in News, WordPress |

It has been a great ride that last several months but also an extremely busy one. This has made me take a hard look at my WordPress Themes and WordPress Plugins to see how I should be going forward into 2014 with them.

Under the BNS banner there are currently six (6) themes and 16 plugins that can be found in their respective WordPress repositories. Each of those have been reviewed and recently updated over the last couple of months; and, in those reviews I have found most have reached a point of maturity where there is not a lot more to do with them as is.

I have been seeing only general maintenance and core upkeep as their overall requirements with few if any “bugs” ever being reported. That being the case these themes and plugins will be going into a “maintenance” mode unless, of course, something significant is brought to my attention or a really great idea is presented to enhance one or more of these works. I plan to adjust my review/update schedule from every three to four months to more along the lines of every six to eight months.

I do have some interesting plugin ideas in the beginning stages, more drawing board than code at the moment, that I plan to explore further this year.

I will also be shifting my entire theme enhancement focus over to my latest theme Opus Primus which carries its own banner and is built entirely on its own roots as a framework.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank each and every user of my themes and plugins and assure them I am not going anywhere.

Also to note, as the Lead Happiness Engineer – NextGEN Gallery at Photocrati Media, I plan to start looking at integration of NextGEN Gallery functionality and related presentation features into all of my themes.
