We have just released a WordPress plugin to help WordPress users to discover WishSimply and use the embedded wish lists that WishSimply offers for free.
The plugin is very simple and it basically allows users to do the very same thing they can already do by embedding the currently available iframe code to their web page. However, the plugin adds value to WordPress users by offering them a nice and easy way to administrate wish lists through the WordPress menu, and of course the convenience of using the short codes in the pages or posts.
We have also naturally subscribed to the plugins support forum in case WordPress users have some questions that they would like to ask on their favorite platform.
According to Wikipedia:
WordPress is a free and open-source content management system. It is most associated with blogging but supports other types of web content including more traditional mailing lists and forums, media galleries, and online stores. Used by more than 60 million websites, including 33.6% of the top 10 million websites as of April 2019.
The plugin is open sourced (like all WordPress.org hosted plugins) and its development will happen in our Gitlab account. The plugin currently works very well and there is no need for immediate updates. However, we are thinking about improving it so that list creation could be initiated from the plugin without visiting the WishSimply web site. It is not a high priority task, but if it materialized in a year that would be nice.
We made also a test list to demonstrate how it looks in real life. Check it at Weebly, where we have made a baby wish list according to Meghan's and Harry's public wishes, and Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s Royal Wedding gift list according their public wishes
