From WPStar comes the WPZipper, a cool new site that lets you generate a fresh WordPress installation with all the WordPress plugins that you want or create a “plugins only” installation zip file. WPZipper makes life more easier for WordPress users.
Why WPStar created WPZipper:
I created wpzipper because I find myself installing WordPress quite often. Every time, I have to go digging for the right plugins, download them all, unzip them, then upload them to my server. If you use a lot of plugins, this can be quite time consuming.
WPZipper makes it a lot easier to install WordPress and WordPress plugins because it saves you time looking for every single plugin. With this, you get all the plugins that you need from one place. I’m sure many WordPress users will be happy to know about this and will find this site very useful.
Personally, I’m not sure if I’m gonna use this. I think there’s a concern for security as I would want to make sure that the WordPress installation file that I use comes directly from WordPress.org and not from any other site especially after the incident with WordPress 2.1.1. If there’s a way to validate the source of the installation file, then I might change my mind. But inspite of that, I still think that this is a great service and kudos to WPStar for coming up with this idea.
