As most of you know, I recently made a plugin called Hybrid Hook, which allows you to input custom content almost anywhere on your site straight from your WordPress dashboard:
It's a Hybrid-theme-only plugin, which uses Hybrid's built-in hook system to do some neat things.
The next plugin
My latest idea is for a complete multimedia box. See the working version of the settings page:
The idea is that you can set up images, video, or custom content to show wherever you want. It'll be a while before I release it because i've got a few other things to work on first.
Would you like to see more Hybrid-specific plugins?
I could build a lot of this into the Hybrid backend, but then it would become another Options, which is something I'd rather stay away from. I want the Hybrid settings to be all about content/information.
Plugins could be a neat way to extend the theme without putting a lot of messy code within the theme files itself.
I know a lot of you aren't advanced coders, so it just makes sense to give you a little of the power that more advanced users can do without a plugin.
I have quite a few ideas about what type of plugins would be extremely useful to add, but I'd like to hear your thoughts on this. If you all really like the plugin idea, I'll continue creating them. Also, do you have any ideas about ways to extend Hybrid? I'd love to hear them.
