Over 50,000 WordPress downloads for the sharing, saving, bookmarking plugin!

November 19th, 2008

Yesterday we crossed a milestone:

Over 50 THOUSAND downloads of the Share/Save/Bookmark plugin for WordPress!

Since the official directory opened over a year and a half ago, the Share/Save/Bookmark plugin, as well as the Subscribe widget plugin for feeds, have been a key focus of our time and development.  Everyone seems to know that WordPress rules, and to give outsiders insight, what you’re reading now was written in WordPress. 🙂

We are proud to say that Add to Any has maintained two of the best integrated WordPress plugins available. Hands down, the Share/Save button is the most integrated all-inclusive sharing plugin.  50,000 downloads later, and with whatever the crazy WordPress install count is, there’s a good chance you already know that!

A lot of time, effort, and e-mail went into this feat, and it certainly helps when you have the backing of one of the best communities on the Internet.  I have to say, 9/10 times the best feedback comes from WordPress publishers and fellow WordPress developers. You people rock, with a great big shout out to James Huff, Steven Sashen of the Meditation Truth blog, Tri Nguyen, Michael Cohen (performance guru), and every publisher and developer that’s ever given feedback — thank you!

The plugins themselves are over 2 years old, and neither has reached version 1.0.  Why so Googley?  We’re doing our best to ensure that 1.0 is clean as can befailsafe to install, and optimized to minimize its footprint. That said: We want your help!

Right now Add to Any is looking for WordPress-specific feedback more than ever.  Please tell us how the plugins can be better.  Whether that means taking a magnifying class to the code, localizing in a language you know (thank you, Juan!  Thank you, Dupola!), or suggesting a new option or feature — we appreciate every note.

Thanks again to every WordPress publisher out there that uses Add to Any, and thank you WordPress!
