When I first created Roo Link Directory, I did expect a large spike in sales, as those years were the web directories years. Google was not penalizing web directories or links from this kind of sites, and everyone wanted to have a link directory and a WordPress blog.

After the directory plugin, I decided to merge my Jobbin plugin on the same framework and, again, a large sales spike followed. Seeing its success, I decided to create a third one, a classifieds board – Roo Classifieds – , on the same framework. Using the same codebase, the plugins were more than 80% similar, and that accounted for same updates to all of them, same bug fixes, same features and same support questions. A pretty redundant job.

A plugin merge was imminent and functions and options merge was to follow. No client/user/buyer had 2 or more plugins on the same WordPress installation, so there was no danger in function conflicts.

roo! Framework is now here!

Combining all the features in all 3 previous plugins, a beta version was released on CodeCanyon, replacing Roo Link Directory. Previous buyers will get the update for free.

A demo is also available, enhancing my  Irish business link directory.
