    Would anyone be interested in an app that installs WP with some common plugins and themes bundled together?

    I've got a few ideas around making a simple installer with useful plugins, etc, that a user can double-click like a windoze app, which will upload to the server and run through the installation steps to make setting up blogs easier.

    Maybe a collection of common plugins for adsense, some autoblog type stuff, form plugins and so on?

    Still a work in progress, but the first cut is here - installer, 10 custom themes, a few plugins that need to be activated. Still haven't figured out how to autoinstall&activate plugins. :-(

    Code:

    There's a link on the front page.
    This is what I've got it looking like at the moment...

    You are on to building a good thing but the wheel has already been invented. Unless I am missing something.

    I can install a blog with any theme(s) I want and with any plugins I want and all plugins are automatically activated. The theme I selected is activated. Pages , categories , posts whatever you wish are auto installed. Time to install? 1 click and 5 seconds.

    Search in the DL section for WP-Manager DX v2.46

    Fair enough...guess there's no interest. As far as I could make out, the other solutions are server based, while this is a desktop app that makes it easy for even WF or DP users to use. :)

    Oh, and as for the comment about reinventing the wheel, I guess Ford, Mazda, Chrysler, Fiat, Ferrari all missed that little gem of wisdom. I mean, hell, we only need a Model T in black, right?

    Yes,it'll be very usefull if you 'll do the automatic pluging activation or similar to wordpress cloner,but to clone the ready to use blog not only on subdomains but to any domain or host.
    All other scripts is server based,first you need to install them,it's not so easy for some people.
    fantastico only in cpanel hosts,but many hostings have direct admin, plesk ...and even custom panels.

    I'm using this particular installer to take some of the gruntwork out of setting up MFA sites, so what I've done is include the plugins I use regularly, along with themes, etc. I still need to figure out how to get the plugins to autoactivate, but this at least cuts down on the time I spend manually installing, and so on.
    An example is:

    I seriously dont get the point of this thread. So what if the solutions are server based.....um.....you are aware that wordpress will at some point have to be stored on a server somewhere.

    Why the need for a desktop based app?

    Like I said, go checkout wordpress direct. Simple web based app that rapidly installs wordpress. Works with most large webhosting companies.

    Hi OP, ur program is nice.

    u can just post the program here and we can contribute ideas and bugs to your program. Asking for page views by not giving out the program directly here is not very nice in BHW.
