My News Wordpress Plugin

A Wordpress plugin for querying the Bing Search API from the Wordpress Admin Screen.

My News is a plugin for Wordpress which utilizes the Bing search feature within the Microsft Congnitive Features API.

The plugin was my first attempt at working with Wordpress (outside of building the odd theme here and there) and I successfully managed to get the plugin approved by the Wordpress powers but I'd like to add more functionality before adding it to the Wordpress SVN repo and thus being listed on the Wordpress plugin directory.

The plugin itself is very simple and doesn't do much in version 1.0. It allows a user in the Wordpress admin area to search the Bing API for a selected news category, in a chosen language and view the results.

I next have plans to extend the functionality with the next step being to allow the plugin to be used as a widget and display the results on whichever page and at whichever location they wish.

The code is in a public Github repo and is freely available - feel free to take a look and give me any feedback you may have! The link can be found in the menu to the left.
