M3talinks for Apr 6th

Today’s M3talinks for Apr 6th

  • VoucherPress – a WordPress plugin for creating downloadable, printable vouchers – stillbreathing.co.uk – website design and development – VoucherPress is a WordPress plugin that allows you to give downloadable, printable vouchers in PDF format away on your site. Download the VoucherPress plugin here.<br />
    <br />
    Have you ever wanted to give away vouchers or tokens on your website? If so this plugin is for you. You can create a voucher with whatever text you want, choosing the layout and font from a range of templates (you can also add your own templates). Vouchers can then be viewed, downloaded and printed from a specified URL.<br />
    <br />
    There are shortcodes to add a link to a particular voucher, or to show an unordered list of all your vouchers.<br />
    <br />
    You can require visitors to provide their name and email address to get a voucher. If an email address is required an email is sent to the address with a link to the voucher URL. Each voucher has a unique code, and vouchers that have an email address associated with them can only be used once, so once a registration-required voucher is downloaded it can’t be downloaded again.

    ubuntu_poster.jpg

    I made this Ubuntu poster some time ago, and released the “sources” with a Gnu-GPL licence. But this licence is not really made for work like this, since it was concieved for software only. Now I’m re-releasing this with a more appropriate licence, a Creative Commons (share alike) licence 3.0.

    The zip file you can download here contains the parts I used to make the poster in png and svg formats, compatible with all the major free applications like the Gimp, Inkscape and Scribus. You can use them to make your own poster, create a localized version, make a wallpaper or sticker with it… whatever you want as long as you don’t do it for profit, and you share the result with the same CCPL licence (see the link to creative commonst below for more info). Please let me know if you do something with it… just curious!
