Welcome to the first episode of PluggedIn Radio!
This podcast serves as a bridge between the creators of WordPress products & services and our listeners. I feel it’s important that we understand who creates our software, before uploading to the websites that power our brands and organizations. The podcast also serves as a means to help listeners learn how to use the highlighted plugin, to gain better perspective.
How I hope this helps you:
- Fun & educational
- Learn how-to use a plugin or service
- Meet the people responsible for the software you love
Easier Excerpts by Pressware
In this kick-off episode, I sit down with Tom McFarlin to discuss how to use his new Easier Excerpts plugin. It’s an extremely lightweight plugin that allows a user to manipulate the excerpt field metabox in the WordPress editor.
In short: No more tiny text field for you to scrunch text into.
I’m really diggin’ these “micro” plugins that make WordPress work just a little bit better. Things that you wish WordPress included out of the box, can be handled with these thoughtful solutions. Have you tried Easier Excerpts yet? Post your feedback in the comments below and share your experience with the plugin.
