What plugins do you miss?

Edited (2017-05-22) by @texnixe: There is a new Plugin Ideas subcategory now. Please use the new category to post your plugin ideas, request etc., I think this will help us to have more structure while keeping the discussion here in the forum. Thanks to @flokosiol for the suggestion :slight_smile:

Thanks @jenstornell for your great initiative with the GitHub repo, I don’t know if you want to keep it or not, now that we have the new category?

I whish we must take care, that Kirby is not moving to WordPress :stuck_out_tongue:

I’m aware of that I linked to a few WordPress plugins, but they just plugins and are not a part of WordPress (core). There are probably similar plugins for Drupal and Joomla.

As long as all these things are not built into Kirby core, I think it’s fine. Even if there is a plugin that reminds of WordPress, you don’t have to use it.

I like the content staging idea, but I’d rather have a git-based staging strategy (production site without the panel and a cron job that pulls from git, staging site with the panel and manually committing and pushing a batch of changes), and a plugin that helps with that strategy (e.g. add a button/page to the panel for doing the commit-and-push thing in PHP).

A full content staging mechanism in one Kirby instance would be much harder to do and more brittle, IMO. Helps people who don’t have git on the server or would have difficulties setting up 2 site instances, but not sure it’s best to push in that direction.

I just wanted to add that I’ve not added all the plugins in the wishlist even if it may seem that way.

I’ve not added the staging idea. Staging is a quite common need but a hard one to solve.

Yes, that’s actually what I had in mind.

Another approach would be to use revisions (if this feature is ever available). We could make changes to any page and save them as a “staging” or “pending” revision. A button would then switch these staging revisions with the normal/prod pages.

I’m working on such plugin, can’t wait to share with you all.

I’ve added a timetable plugin and move sites plugin wish :slight_smile:

what about a Guestbook or a Contact Form Plugin :smiley:

There is already a great contact form plugin called [Uniform] (https://github.com/mzur/kirby-uniform)

who can i download it?

Just click on the link.

An easy-to-use shopping cart + payment gateway plugin, that can handle recurring subscriptions, gift vouchers and discount codes. It would be great to have a plugin for automatic integration with services such as SnipCart, FoxyCart, or that provide an easy way to implement things such as a Stripe Checkout widget, without having to write a complete shopping cart on our own.

@luxlogica Do you know the Shopkit? from @samnabi

@thesmithy please correct me if I’m wrong, but AFAIK Shopkit does not support subscriptions or gift vouchers…

You are not mistaken …

i dont know it sry :confused:

A kirby panel plugin which nicely handles tables for editors.

Right now this is lacking, and I haven’t found a nice way yet to add this to kirby.

thx =)
