Rounding the corner on WP Validate

FYI => Can I get a “Holy sheep-dip Batman!”? And please also allow me to be a bit less humble and say that this WordPress plugin has the potential to be big. I’ve done quite a bit of searching and best I can tell there are no WordPress plugins for validating post content prior to publishing. Until now!

For example, is the title too long or too short? Are there too many categories selected? Or not enough? The possibilities are endless. In short, if it shows up on the Post’s Add New or Edit page(s) the WP Validate plugin can be configured via specialized “apps” to validate any content that is entered.  It even handles custom meta data and custom post types. That’s right! Impressive, eh?

I have the core code in place. At this point I’m testing and tweaking. There is a bit that’s somewhat awkward configuring but that’s fine. For the moment I’m targeting slightly more geeky admins who aren’t frightened by a bit of code and also have a basic understanding arrays. IMHO it’s worth the effort. No validation is a WordPress soft spot, eh?

Until now!

I’m so excited about this that I even purchased a domain specifically for this project. While WP Validate is architected to allow people to develop there own apps (and just plug them in, so to speak.) I’m thinking I can sell various apps for a couple bucks a pop. Even a PHP developer who is capable of coding their own will probably just give in and save themselves the time.

The world is a big place and there are quite a few WordPress users.  Duh?!?! A couple bucks here. A couple bucks there. This baby could scale.

In the words of The Heavy, “How do ya like me now?”
