New pMetrics Plugin for WordPress Released

Filed as News on September 3, 2007 2:42 am

Peformancing has recently announced the release of a new pMetrics plugin for WordPress, which is considered revolutionary and a “major step forward in WordPress plugin technology.” According to Ryan Caldwell, the idea behind the new plugin is to move away from the usual manual way of updating software and plugins, which is especially tedious when running a big number of blogs.

In a nutshell here’s what the pMetrics plugin offers:

  1. Auto-updates (this option can be toggled on and off)
  2. One-click installs for added functionality
  3. One-click removals (deletes files off the server)
  4. Blog stats in your WordPress dashboard
  5. Latest searches display
  6. pMetrics rank display
  7. Auto-installation of pMetrics javascript code

This new software architecture was done on top of the Performancing pMetrics API. Performancing promises added features soon, such as auto-installation of affiliate banner in sidebar, blog sales page with detailed pMetrics statistics, and feedburner integration.

Download and support notes are available via the announcement page

Disclosure: Performancing and the Blog Herald are both owned by Splashpress Media.

    “The innovation that we are introducing is at the level of fundamental architecture and can be generalized for numerous applications…”

    That’s about as clear as mud and reads like most marketing releases – what exactly is so innovative about a plugin?

    I guess it depends on what the plugin does that determines whether it is innovative or not. Have you tried it out?
