The new button that will show up on WordPress.org plugin pages

Description:

If you’ve ever been sent a link to a plugin hosted on WordPress.org and wanted to install that plugin, you currently have two options:

  1. Download the plugin manually, upload it to your blog either via the admin interface or via FTP, and then activate it.
  2. Visit your admin area and find the plugin again via the Add New Plugin interface.

Both options are annoying, especially since you’re already staring at the plugin you want to install.

Well now there’s a much easier solution! Simply install this plugin to your blog and then either install it’s Greasemonkey script or it’s bookmarklet from the plugin’s page and you’re all set. You will then be able to literally one-click install any plugin directly from WordPress.org.

Download:

Yes, you’ll have to install this plugin manually or via your admin area. Luckily though it’ll be the last plugin you’ll have to install this way! :)

  2. I like the marriage of Greasemonkey and WordPress. Great time-saving plug-in! Thanks
    Maybe someone will write one for ordering take-out through WP.

    What in the world? I had someone else report that error to me, but I cannot reproduce it on any of my servers.

    What version of PHP are you running?
