Holy Crap!

I’ve been looking at the differences between the published version of the WordPress plugin WP-UserOnline and my hacked implementation of it, and boy did I go to town! I even modified the database table the plugin created so I could add the ability to show visitors’ useragents as well – I remember doing it using mysqladmin. Definitely not a casual hack, although I could probably publish how to modify the installer to do the same thing.

Unfortunately, I can’t even post my own versions of the files without sorting through and publishing a new readme file – in my version, I changed the way the plugin accesses the underlying WordPress database tables. So I’m looking at a lot of nit-picking work just documenting my hacks. I have to wonder whether it’s more efficient to just start my own plugin. I guess I’ll wait for the masses to weigh in on that issue.

    We will be more than happy to test your plugin, maybe some Dutch php programmers with tight schedules can test and check your script.
