Introducing WP “Notes” plugin

Published: On Sunday, January 18, 2009

I had free hour and half today and God knows why I decided to do this plugin. Simple, but extremely useful, in my opinion. For me, it's place to leave notes about future articles, possible topics, ToDos connected with that particular WP site.

    is it multiuser ready?

    ↪ OndroNR No, all users that have access to Notes (= the with administrator rights) share same textfield and its content. It's not intended to be used by more than one user. Yet.

    I think it would be nice if there would be shared and private notes

    Great! I love this!

    Agreed with Private/Shared or Current User / All Users. Also would love to see this as part of the dashboard. thx.

    ↪ Kel: Thank you all for sharing your opinions. You are definitely influencing priorities for features in upcoming versions. Unfortunatelly, I'm not able to say when it's going to happen…

    Great plugin. The only minor problem I have is that its icon does not show up in the admin. Instead I have a broken linked image icon. I have the same issue with Add Quicktag plugin.

    ↪ Sourena Mohammadi Thanks for report, please try the newest version, I believe it's fixed.

    And I will add the plugin to official repository now so next upgrade will be simpler for everyone…

    Since now, plugin is available from the off. repository (so you may use the upgrade or search → install features).

    Kahi:

    I went to upload WP-Notes and tried to activate in WP and I keep getting an error message about line 22 and line 23? Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Rick

    ↪ Rick Most likely is your server running too old version of PHP. You might try to ask your hosting provider for PHP 5.

    Kahi:
    This is a sweet plugin! I am setting up a company blog for a brand development company and found this is a great way for me to communicate with other administrators on the project. That being said it would be cool if this plugin could act as a collaboration message board of sorts for all my team members submitting posts. Food for thought.

    ↪ Rob I can't imagine any simple way how to transform this one-file-notepad into usable collaboration tool. (Can you?) Maybe a privitely published page with enabled comments could do better. Sorry.

    Great plugin. I'll use this quite a bit. Any plans for adding this to the dashboard or does that already exist?

  16. 16.  Kahi [author] wrote: On May 9., 2009 comment number 16

    ↪ Eric Barb It's planned. And it shouldn't be too dificult, so you can expect it in the next major release.

    I think that if you would add a function on it to pull a copy of the note to your dashboard (not to edit, but as a reminder) that would be great. Just one box like a post it. A more link would be good too. That way I can leave myself a story reminder, and be refreshed by the sticky each time I load my dashboard. If I want to edit the content, THEN go to the link at the bottom.

    Also maybe a way to prioritize notes, more than three or so. That way „to do“ lists would be a little easier to manage.

    Those are about all I can think of.

    ↪ Joy Phillip Seem to me quite different from current Notes principle – like stickies for WP. I could maybe do somethink like that one day, thanks for your opinion!

    Hey,

    Listen I really love your plugin. Works great with WP 2.8.1 but with WP 2.8.2 it crashes!

    Here's the error:

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STATIC, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or ‚}‘ in /nfs/c03/h04/­mnt/57871/doma­ins/bdc.sandvi­per.net/html/wp-content/plugin­s/kahis-notes/knotes.php on line 15

    Please! Please! Please! Please! Please! Fix this! :-P

    I've integrated your plugin into my WP design workflow and depend on it!

    Please update when possible!

    Thanks!

    FOLLOW UP!

    Ignore my earlier post!

    That error was generated because my host PHP was set to Vs. 4.x – I changed it to version 5 and now the plugin works fine! Yippee! I'm happy as a schoolboy!

    Neat little notes page – shame it's fixed width and doesn't have a scroll bar (although extends a fair way anyway!), but that's minor quibbles. Simple and effective, and while dashboard notes are okay for small items, this is great for anything larger.

  22. 22.  Kahi [author] wrote: On February 14., 2010 comment number 22

    ↪ Andrew Thank you for your ideas. I'm afraid that non-fixed width (too long lines) would cause the text difficult to read…

    Any timeframe on when this can be used by multi-users? Great plugin by the way.

  24. 24.  Kahi [author] wrote: On February 19., 2010 comment number 24

    ↪ Sean To be honest, multi-user support is not going to be implemented until there will be a donation to that wish attached. Sorry, I've got plenty of higher-priority tasks in queue.

    Awesome, exactly what I needed to keep track on all things!

    Kahi,
    This is a great plug-in. I have been using it for months now. We have a new person who will be helping with our website and as I was training her with CrossLoop, I realized she was unable to see the Notes plug-in where I stored thins like consistent formatting of titles and a bit of html code I use often. I bumped her up to Administrator from Editor this morning, hoping that would allow her to see my notes. I read the comments above and I am not sure the change will show Notes to her.
    I guess I will find out later today when we collaborate again, so I guess if it does not work, then I am posting this as a feature request.
    Unfortunately there is no donation attached, maybe sometime later. How much of a donation would entice you to make the plug-in a multi-user product?

I quit working with WordPress, comments are closed. My plugins will not be updated any more – at least not by me. Feel free to modify my source codes though… Also I am not able to provide support, sorry. –Kahi
