WordPress Plugin: Hot-or-Not Admin Panel

“Hot-or-Not Admin Panel” is my second WordPress plugin. Its purpose is to encourage administration of your blog by displaying a picture of a random girl from Hot or Not in the upper right corner of the administration panel. Gender, age and rating are configurable.

Download and Install

The current version of Hot-or-Not Admin Panel is 1.7. Download the zipped file here: hotadminpanel.zip. To install the plugin, just unzip it, upload it to the wp-content/plugins/ folder and activate it through the plugin tab in the administration panel.

Hot or Not Admin Panel works perfectly well on both WordPress 1.5 (Strayhorn) and 2.0, although it does not work in WordPress 1.2. Note that you will need either allow_url_fopen set to TRUE in your php.ini, or CURL support.
