Deploy WordPress plugins from GitHub to WordPress.org SVN

Most developers (and companies) choose Git over SVN as their version control system. However, they have to use SVN to ship updates to WordPress.org plugin repo.

Ship is a new application designed to help developers deploy plugins directly from GitHub to WordPress.org repo. All you have to do is tag the release on GitHub and it will automatically push updates to the plugin’s official SVN repo on WordPress.org.

Ship

In order to use Ship, you must have already submitted your plugin zip file to WordPress.org. You can then sign into the Ship with GitHub account and authorize its access to your repositories.

Ship will then fetch all of your repositories and you’ll have to select the ones you want to hook up with a WordPress.org SVN address in order to start syncing updates.

Description:

WordPress comments are very important for a blog and really makes it possible to interact with users. Comments are why users take more interest in a blog.

But one of the problems with the comments is that all the links (URLs) in the comments open in the same window. This diverts the user’s mind away from the actual post and increases the bounce rate.

This plugin opens all the links added in the comments and author URL, in a new tab or window which helps to decrease the bounce rate and increase user engagement on your blog.

Installation:

  • 1. Upload the ‘wp-open-comment-links-in-new-window’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/‘ directory
  • 2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  • 3. That’s it!

WP Super Minify is a WordPress plugin, minifies, caches and combine JavaScript and CSS files into a single file on demand to speed up page loads, using Minify PHP Framework and minit.

By activating this plugin, you will see the source of your HTML, inline JavaScript and CSS are now compressed and your external Javascript and CSS files are combined into a single file. The size will be smaller and quite helpful to improve your page load speed as well as google page speed and yslow grade (if you care).

To check whether this plugin works properly, simply view your site source or press Ctrl + U from your keyboard. In the end of the source, you should see message something like:
*** Total size saved: 11.341% | Size before compression: 27104 bytes | Size after compression: 24030 bytes. ***

Installation:

  • 1. Upload the ‘wp-super-minify’ folder to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/‘ directory
  • 2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
  • 3. That’s it!
