    My plugins on wordpress.org

    Thirteen years ago I published my first plugin (oik) on wordpress.org.

    Whereas the total downloads of oik now exceeds two hundred thousand, my latest plugin, Field block for ACF PRO, has only been downloaded just over 100 times. It took a year for oik to reach one thousand downloads. I’m hoping the new one might get there a bit quicker.

    Plugins

    I’ve now got 16 plugins on wordpress.org, over 80 on oik-plugins.com and many more on GitHub bobbingwide.

    Below are the total download statistics for the plugins that are downloadable from wordpress.org.

    I recently (re)tested each one of these plugins and marked them compatible with WordPress 6.4. Even the plugins that I don’t intend to improve.

    Blocks and shortcodes

    Many of my plugins deliver shortcodes. A few deliver blocks. Some of them are single block plugins.

    Some comments…

    • The total downloads reached the half a million mark in August 2023.
    • oik continues to be the most popular of my plugins, with over 1,000 updates soon after I released v4.9.1
    • oik-privacy-policy is still activated on approximately 1,000 sites even though it isn’t actually necessary once the Privacy policy page has been created.
    • I still don’t know why people are running oik-weightcountry-shipping. It clearly states it’s been replaced by oik-weight-zone-shipping.
    • At least after updating both plugins oik-weight-zone-shipping did get more downloads.
    • While my single block plugins ( uk-tides, sb-chart-block, sb-children-block ) aren’t all that popular, up to 50% of the sites where they’re installed have updated to the latest versions.
    • I have submitted a new plugin, Field block block for ACF PRO, which is a single block plugin dependent upon Advanced Custom Fields (ACF) PRO. It’s on the review backlog; I had to rename it from ACF Field block.
    • Next target: SB Chart Block to reach 5000 downloads?
    • Perhaps I should consider releasing a few more of my single block plugins.
