WordPress Move – Screencast

I had some problems with recording sound but I think it is still crystal clear. As always, the best way to learn how to use it is actually using it. Since it already comes with a documentation explaining things in detail and on-screen explanations are also more than adequate, I did not feel the need to explain things over and over again.

Things will be hopefully much simpler in the upcoming versions, so stay tuned! ;)

WordPress Move – The Future

Hello everyone!

As you may probably have noticed, this summer was mostly about developing a migration tool called called WordPress Move for WordPress, as a Google Summer of Code 2011 project. First of all, I want to thank everybody who made my summer the best one I ever had. It was a great experience that led to meeting awesome people and learning many new things. Honestly, I did not know WordPress had such great developers/contributors and a great community. It is no surprise that it is the most widely used content management system in the world.

Thanks to my mentors’ guidance and helps, my project went very well and became something I am really proud of. Of course, since it is the first release, it may have bugs we missed during the testing phase or missing features people would love to see. No worries, I will keep developing WordPress Move in the future to make it the best plugin ever written for this purpose. In the upcoming releases, I will reorganize the file structure of the plugin and add support for migrating and changing the domain name at the same time. I have some really cool ideas apart from these too, so stay tuned! ;)

The plugin has been downloaded 234 times so far on WordPress Plugin Directory which is well above my expectations. If you need such a plugin, please go ahead, download it from WordPress Plugin Directory and provide me some feedback on how I can improve it.

If you wish, you can read the weekly updates I posted on WordPress Summer of Code 2011 blog for more information about the plugin’s development process:

Once again, I want to thank my mentors and the WordPress community for being so awesome. I am so happy to be a part of this community and will do my best to contribute it as much as I can.

See you soon!
