Possible future features
Here's a list of some features we'd love to add to this plugin or support in a separate (child) plugin. If you'd like these or other features to be implemented you may consider supporting this plugin with code contributions, testing or hiring us to sponsor development.
- Allow media files to be licensed
- Allow to search (using external search engines) for specific Creative Commons licensed media files
WPLicense is loosely based on an existing, but seemingly abandoned Wordpress plugin named 'License' (a component of the MIT Educational Collaboration Space project) by mitcho (Michael Yoshitaka Erlewine) & Brett Mellor. WPLicense is also inspired by Creative Commons' original WPLicense plugin written by former Creative Commons CTO Nathan Yergler.
If you're interested in the code have a look at the master branch for the releases. Development will be done in the development branch. Occasionally other branches may be available to test new features or play with new ideas, but they may be deleted anytime so don't rely on those branches.
