DFD Reddcoin Tips Wordpress Plugin v1.0.4 Released

Version 1.0.4 of the “DFD Reddcoin Tips” Wordpress Plugin was released yesterday (2014/Dec/11). This is the first finely-tuned version of the plugin, after the initial beta release and the initial rounds of bug-fixing / feature-enhancing releases that followed. Here is a summary of the current release…

Project URL:


DFD Reddcoin Tips is a WordPress plugin to display Reddcoin tipping and payment widgets on your website, and send and receive Reddcoins within a built-in password-protected admin console that fully integrates and connects you to the Reddcoin API (ReddAPI.com).

For security of your Reddcoin balances, the API keys are stored with 2 way / 256 bit encryption in the wordpress database for a high level of protection from theft, and are decrypted on-the-fly only when using the command console with your WordPress password.


You can install fairly easily doing a search in your plugin admin area, or upload the archive manually…make sure you activate after uploading. After installation, you’ll need to create a Reddcoin API account at ReddAPI.com if you wish to send / receive Reddcoins, and also go to “Appearance → Widgets” in the Wordpress admin area to add a payment badge to your web pages.

I’m -not- a Reddcoin dev, just a guy that likes Reddcoin’s present / upcoming features. Fixing any discovered bugs will be top priority as far as devoting my time to this project, and any feature requests that are feasible / small enough I can squeeze into my schedule…larger features may take awhile to complete if I do commit to any. This is an open source project, so feel free to do an SVN checkout at the repository and fork the codebase for yourself if you wish :

Enjoy the plugin, and Happy Reddcoin Tipping! :o)

dragonfrugal This is really really good work. Kudos!

The plug-in talks to people when they pass on the website.

And it hides the address numbers in a funny way. Thank you very much!

laudney Thanks very much for the compliments, glad you like it! :o)

Artur Darn, the hidden features have been discovered already. :o) That would be great if it did actually talk. Glad you like it. Laudney made the rolling coin months ago, I just added features.
