Launching the dashed-slug

The slug’s mission is to provide to you, the tech-savvy WordPress admin, quality WordPress plugins, that harness new and emerging technologies. And to support and extend said plugins.

Hello and welcome, fellow WordPresser!

I’m very excited today, the dashed-slug is now officially launching after almost a full year of management, design, development, testing, and more. Oh, so much more…

The slug’s mission is to provide to you, the tech-savvy WordPress admin, quality WordPress plugins, that harness new and emerging technologies. And to support and extend said plugins.

Currently one plugin is available, SVG Logo and Text Effects (SLATE). Leveraging on the increasing availability of SVG support in modern web browsers, it lets you create awesome text effects in your posts and pages. Paying for registration will get you access to three extensions to this plugin that provide additional functionality, and to one resource pack that adds some SVG shapes. And also, updates and support for those.

So, what’s next, you ask? It’s quite simple really: The dashed-slug‘s plan is now as follows:

  • Provide support. The website, the plugin and it’s extensions have all undergone rigorous testing. But, since this is a new endeavor, there are bound to be hiccups, especially at the start. Please keep calm and use the ticket system. All will be resolved!
  • Extend SLATE. SVG is a powerful standard and it’s full potential is not yet fully tapped. SLATE is extensible. More presets, patterns and shapes will be made available in the next few months. Having said that, you’ll be surprised with what you can do already.
  • Work on the next product in the pipeline. Sneak peek: This is a wallet plugin that leverages the emerging cryptocurrency technologies. An entire modular software stack can, and will be built to bring all kinds of money into your site. The monetization possibilities are endless. Stay tuned and follow the slime.
