Add-ons

This is the home of Broadcast, a content syndication / sharing plugin for WordPress. You can read more about the basic Broadcast plugin here. If you already have Broadcast and want to use it more effectively, perhaps you might be interested in the add-on packs below?

Premium pack v42, changelog

The premium pack consists of all four of the packs below –  96 add-ons!

3rd party pack v42, changelog

These add-ons act as glue between Broadcast and plugins from 3rd parties. They automatically detect features and do any extra work necessary to integrate the plugins during broadcasting.

These add-ons give you extra control of what you broadcast and how.

  • All Blogs gives all users access to all of the blogs in the network.

  • User & Blog Settings Post uses the modifications from the UBS plugin to broadcast posts with one click.

Efficiency pack v42, changelog

These add-ons allow you to broadcast more efficiently, saving you even more time.

  • Blog Groups 2 provides a means of groups blogs together, in order to be able to quickly select and unselect blogs from the Broadcast meta box.
  • Duplicate Attachments will duplicate the attachment and thumbnails, instead of letting WordPress regenerate them.
  • Find Some Unlinked Children can selectively link orphans / unlinked posts to parents, instead of automatically linking all found children.

  • CDN Workaround works around faulty CDNs that do not report the correct URL for attachments.
  • Lock Post allows users to lock editing of posts / pages to only themselves and super admins.
  • Media Cleanup cleans up unused media by searching through the database.

  • Page Content Shortcode provides a [bc_page_content slug="pageslug"] shortcode to display the contents of a page.
