Flickr settings fields plugin for WordPress

A technical goal for 2016 is to make more WordPress plugins, and to submit them to the official WordPress plugin repository, so that other users can benefit from them.

The next addition to the set of plugins I’ve contributed is a simple one to add fields to the Settings » Media screen in the WordPress backend for Flickr API information. (Key, Secret and User ID). Theme or plugin developers can then use WordPress’ own get_option function in their own code to request and use these values.

The plugin is here, if you want to try it out.
