is designed to sell premium WordPress plugins. I will be adding my own plugins to the site, and also hosting plugins for independent developers. Here is a little bit of information about the site.

Update 2021! Looking back on this post after seven years. Much has changed under the hood, including a complete overhaul and redesign of the entire site. Keep that in mind if reading the following information :)

Built with WordPress

Plugin Planet is built with WordPress, PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and a dash of .htaccess. WordPress plugins include:

Plus using some simple plugins to disable several WordPress “features” that should have been left as plugins and not forced into core. For example: Disable Gutenberg, Disable Embeds, Disable Emojis, Disable Application Passwords, and Disable Responsive Images.

Enhanced with jQuery JavaScript

Much of the site’s previous/original/2014 design was enhanced with jQuery. Fast-forward seven years later, and the current 2021 design replaces heavy-handed jQuery scripts with clean and simple vanilla JavaScript. And as little of it as possible.

The jQuery plugins previously used on-site (original 2014 design) included the following:

Design Features

Features of the site include responsive design and clean HTML markup built with Web Standards. CSS coded by hand and kept as minimal as possible. Should look good on all screens, let me know if otherwise. I think my favorite part of the site is the feature panel on the home page. It’s packed with screenshots and descriptions and far and away required the most time to plan and put together.

Work in progress

The site is a work in progress. Going forward, I will be fleshing out the Docs, Tutorials, and News content, while polishing up the design based on user feedback. If you have suggestions, comments, or questions, or would like info about hosting your plugin at Plugin Planet, drop a line.
