Early this morning, the WordPress.org plugin repository set a mile stone by hosting the 30,000th plugin. I didn’t think it would happen until a few weeks from now but it shows you how many plugins are approved and added to the repository every day. Jan Reimers on Twitter celebrated with a whoop! I second that remark.
The honors go to a plugin called BestWebSoft Google Maps for being the 30,000th plugin to be added to the repository. According to the plugin’s description, it allows you to configure Google Maps and add them to your site quickly and easily.
Congratulations to the WordPress plugin repository and especially to the WordPress community for continuing to share your problem solving plugins with the rest of the world.
Any guesses on when the repository will cross 40,000 plugins?
