Comment Image Plugin Real Use Example

While I’m still waiting the WordPress approval to publish my Comment Image plugin, I want to share with you a blog where this plugin is used.

The blog is Periodo Fertile (can be translated to “Fertilty Days”) and there is a specific post where future moms can upload the picture of their belly.

Nice, isn’t it?


This is a good way to create a little bit of community around a pure informational site. Then, the blog uses Comment Notifier, so each new photo added with a comment will be notified to previous women left a comment.


Using SMTP with WordPress

I was asked to change my plugins so they can send email with SMTP than the internal PHP mail() function. So I patched them all to use the mailing function of WordPress (which use PHP mail() by default).

WordPress mailing method can be modified installing one fo the many plugins which configure it to use and external SMTP server.


Comment Notifier 2.1.1

I have just committed the version 2.1.1 of Comment Notifier. A lot of changes have been introduced, so I except one or more bugs to be found.

Things changed are:

  • Now the plugin use the wp_mail() function, so if you want to send mail via SMTP you can istall one of the plugin which let WordPress to use an SMTP service. wp_mail() function is buggy and some documented features I was using did not work… so it take a lot of time to convert to a different usage of that function.
  • Security checks have been added, thank you very much to Philip M. Hofer (Frumph)
  • Unsubscription process has been improved with a “destination page”
  • Admin panel layout has been changed to be more clear
