Week 7 Status report

Not much to report:

  • UI Styling updates
  • Posted a video
  • Started playing around with a Progress bar, There does not appear to be any premade Javascript libraries to make a quick and easy progress bar (There are some, But no real decent polished ones), I’ve hacked together one out of a few instead of starting from scratch, But its not very clean at all from the servers perspective, It really doesnt fit in well with the feedback loop of the installer/upgrader.. But i’m going to persist with it.
  • I’ve also been playing around with having the updater load in an thickbox iframe, To make the updater and the installer have similar looks/styling – It works, but not as smooth IMO (Also had to add a hack in to force thickbox to show the iframe before it finishes loading..)
  • The API hasnt been really touched the last 2 weeks, I spent some time trying to get the search to work better(Currently, Search for “Akismet” and its not even on the first result page.. Every other plugin that mentions Akismet ranks higher!) – I think that may be due to my local Plugins database’s index’s not being as good as the wordpress.org database, But i’m not sure, I’ve not heard back about how the searching is handled on wordpress.org.
