As expected the initial release had some bugs, notably me using jQuery without its no-conflict mode, of course this caused problems when a plugin that used prototype was used; Version 0.2 resolves this issue, if anyone still has that issue, get in touch with me.

I’m proud to present to you, dDeviantArt 0.1.
dDeviantArtÂ isÂ aÂ WordPressÂ pluginÂ designedÂ toÂ integrateÂ yourÂ DeviationsÂ fromÂ DeviantArt.comÂ intoÂ yourÂ WordPressÂ blog.
The main features are:
- Â The ability to have Multiple Widgets predefined, This allows you to quickly switch between the Deviation set your displaying (Or to display multiple Widgets at once)
- In-line Deviations, You can post deviations inside your Blog post by simply including the :thumb: string which is located on all Deviation pages
- Portfolio Pages, You can define an unlimited number of “Portfolio Pages”, These pages allow you to show off upto 24 of your Deviations on a single page.
The plugin allows you to either set a RSS feed of the Deviations you want to display, Or allows you to set the Search Criteria when defining a page/widget, This allows anyone to quickly set up the item to display as they please.
More information(AndÂ Demos) will be available on the Plugin Homepage, You can download the plugin directly from here.

The results were released the other day for Google’s Summer of Code (Or Winter for those of us in the Southern hemisphere), And as you’ve probably guessed from the title of this post, I’ve been selected.
YouÂ canÂ findÂ theÂ fullÂ listÂ ofÂ organisationsÂ selectedÂ here:Â http://code.google.com/soc/, and the selected WordPress Ideas here:http://code.google.com/soc/wordpress/about.html
MyÂ selectedÂ suggestionÂ isÂ forÂ aÂ Plugin/ThemeÂ updateÂ pluginÂ forÂ WordPress,Â Â In a nutshell, Its a Plugin which:
- Â Allow Notification of Plugin/Theme updates
- Allow searching of Open source repositories
- Allow single-Click install of Plugins/Themes
- Allow Plugins/Themes to be updated from within the Control panel
- Check Requirements for Plugins/Themes before installing
Over the last few weeks i’ve been working on a few parts of my proposal in my spare time, and thought i might share some of my initial screenshots:

CurrentlyÂ thereÂ areÂ noÂ publicÂ builds,Â orÂ anyÂ publicÂ codeÂ available.Â IÂ expectÂ i’llÂ releaseÂ somethingÂ closerÂ toÂ theÂ startÂ date (28thÂ May)Â .
CongratulationsÂ toÂ allÂ thoseÂ accepted,Â ThanksÂ Google(AndÂ WordPress!)Â forÂ theÂ opportunity, And thank you mentors for giving up some time to help the students :)
