Installing my own WordPress plugins

Twice today that I've needed to install my Auto Future Post WordPress plugin to a blog that didn't have it yet. A little odd searching for yourself on the WordPress extend library, but it's pretty easy to find when you know exactly what you're looking for.

And it says something about how easy it is to install plugins through the WordPress interface that it was quicker and easier to search, find, and install plugins that I wrote from the WordPress backend than it would have been to find the files on my computer and upload with FileZilla.

Also nice that the plugin worked without a hitch in WordPress 3.3 as up until today I hadn't ever tested it in anything past 3.0.3.

This post is also going to be the landing page for 301 redirects from the old site, so below are the links to the six plugins I've written so far so those of y'all that came through that redirect have a place to go.
