    Id love to get some feedback on the plugin and Feature requests. You can enter issues on Github https://github.com/WebDevStudios/WP-Contributions and I’ll keep an eye on the comments. We do have the short code and badges planned for the next release.

    This is really cool plugin. Thank you for creating it.

    I have couple of requests:

    – Where we can contribute translations? I can translate in Finnish.

    – Theme widget probably won’t get theme description in Finnish from .po/.mo file. Could there be textarea where I could enter theme description in my own language? If empty, it would fallback the English theme description like now.

      I have built profiles inside GlotPress but till this date WordPress.org has disabled that feature. Unsure when they are going to look at it.

      It would be great if we could just pull in the translated version of the description, but it sounds like from what Marko says, that isn’t available yet. I’ll look into adding fields to override the description. If someone really wanted to change it, there is a filter on all of the theme and plugin data right after it is pulled from WP.org. Not the best for non-developers though.

      Otherwise, I’m pretty sure all strings within the plugin are ready for translation. When I get a chance, I will set up GlotPress for the plugin. Or, you could provide me with translation files or do a pull request on the github repo.

    Been looking at building something like this for a while, but this is already far beyond the initial ideas that I had. Really stoked you guys put this together :)

    I have to say that this is an interesting plugin and definitely see some good use for it. I just might have to try this one out :)

      I just realized I can’t use this plugin because my own site is on Joomla, not WordPress. Hmmm…I wonder if I can make a Joomla version of it. See what happens when one doesn’t get enough sleep! LOL

    I had built something similar more then a year ago: https://github.com/markoheijnen/WordPress-contributions. Didn’t had the change to play more with it except building an API around it on wpcentral.io like http://wpcentral.io/api/contributors/markoheijnen.

      Maybe, but it hasn’t been updated in two years so people won’t be able to find it if they search for such a plugin.

      This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.

      Konstantin – Yeah, the core and codex widgets are almost exactly the same. I made a few small modifications to fit my scheme and included the code in this plugin. We wanted that same functionality in a plugin with the theme and plugin widgets I created. I gave that plugin, which I know you are a part of, a mention on the plugin page in the repo.

    Interesting plugin here. I personally use https://wordpress.org/support/view/plugin-reviews/wp-plugin-info-card to display plugins. The presentation is so nice and you can tell there’s been a close attention to detail by the developer. It would be great if WP Contributions did something similar with their theme showcase widget.

      I looked at WPPIC while doing this, but for our needs we wanted something a little plainer to style on our own and with less branding in the admin. We, however, have plans to add some pre-built styles for all the widgets like are present in WPPIC for those who don’t want to jazz it up themselves.

    By the way, can theme or plugin API pull reviews from WordPress.org? Let’s say I wanted to show randomly 3 reviews that got 5 stars.
