WordPress Plugin Testers Wanted!

Hey boys and girls, I’m getting close to finishing up on some new plugins and a major update for one of my popular ones and I really need your help! From my experience, not every WordPress install is exactly the same and I have to struggle with conflicting plugins, servers and even low-experienced users after releasing a new or updated plugin. So, I’m calling for volunteers that would be interested in testing out plugins before they are released into the wild.

What do I need to do?

I need you to test my plugins with WordPress 2.8.6 and up with popular plugins installed and note any compatibility or usability issues.

Why should I help you?

There are a few good reasons:

  1. Most plugins in the wild don’t work.
  2. Supporting the plugins will be easier in the future. (Remember, open source plugin development isn’t a paying gig…)
  3. Finding the issues I missed. This is where your extra set of eyes becomes helpful.
  4. You get access to plugins before they are release and you are credited for their successful deployment.
  5. For helping, you can have the option of a credit link on the plugin’s blog post or a link on the plugin’s administrative page.
