Today is a pretty happy day for us and all of you Xtremers out there because we’re releasing wpXtreme 1.1.1, the freshly coded version of our plugin, which introduces an exquisite new feature: Extensions.
wpXtreme Extensions are plugin modules that enhance single plugins with specific features and give users a smooth buying experience, similar to the in-app purchase experience from the APP Store you may already be familiar with. To clearly understand how extensions can empower a plugin, try to imagine this: you already use CleanFix, our insanely easy-to-use plugin for keeping WordPress clean, but you aren’t backing up your database. With a single extension “attached” to CleanFix, which you’d need to download from WPX Store (soon available), you’ll be totally able to perform a full backup of your WordPress database.
Extensions are plugins’ best friends because they enrich plugins by adding new and custom features to core functionality. And Extensions tickle developers’ pockets too because they can be built on ANY plugins available on the WPX Store; that’s to say, you can extend plugins’ functionality even though you’re not the developer of those same products. Kinda nice, uh?
To offer a seamless navigation experience and make users quickly browse for extensions, we implemented a little new icon on each plugin’s card within the WPX Store homepage (see image). If you wish to see whether a plugins offers 1 or more extensions, you just need to look up for this icon.
In addition, each wpXtreme plugins now has a new system menu item with a new tab eXtensions, and you can easily spot it right above the About tab as shown below:
Along with several bug fixing and improvements, we worked on:
WPXTREME_MENUto temporary hide the wpXtreme menu
For more detailed information, please check the changelog.
One last note to let you know, wpXtreme is totally compatible with WordPress 3.7.1, which got released some days ago.
It’s now your turn: download wpXtreme 1.1.1 or update it through your WordPress dashboard to bring all these new features, improvements and enhancements to you. If you aren’t an Xtremer yet, sing up for a new account and start taking WordPress to the next level right away. It’s all completely free!
Keep it Xtreme!
