I’ll give you a hint: the answer is “yes”.
I’ve finished the beta of my plugin Custom Post Permalinks, and if you want to help with beta testing, you can download the beta here: https://www.johnpbloch.com/custom-post-permalinks.zip
You should be able to install that using WordPress’ upload installation; if that doesn’t work, well, maybe you shouldn’t be beta testing if you can’t manually install a plugin…
If you find a bug or think of a feature you’d like to see implemented, head on over to my bug tracker and create a ticket.
Also, I know that I didn’t do anything UI/UX related. See Ozh’s graph of how to develop a plugin for more information. And just because the beta is out doesn’t mean I won’t make drastic changes to the UI.
Special thanks to Michael Fields for his help finding areas for improvement in the plugin. I love being a part of such a vibrant and helpful community as the WordPress community. When we work together to help make the software better then we all win. 🙂
The new beta is up (at the same url. I promise it’s not an empty directory this time), and the tentative launch date for the new version (1.1) is Thursday morning. If there are no new bugs or easy feature requests by then, we’ll launch.
Also, here’s a sneak peek at the future for Custom Post Permalinks: GUI. Ajax powered GUI to help you construct the perfect permalink.
