Testers Needed for Feed Styler (WordPress Plugin)

I’m at the point where I’m ready to release a WordPress plugin into the wild, but would like a few people to test it out before the plugin goes public. If you’d like to help test the plugin, please leave a comment saying you’re interested.

The plugin is going to be called Feed Styler. It takes your existing markup and changes it in the feed according to styles you specify. The plugin does not permanently modify any content.

Here’s an example of what happens from a coding perspective. The regular content code might be:

<p class="alert">Paragraph text</p>

But the feed code would be:

<p style="border: 2px solid red;">Paragraph text</p>

The purpose of this plugin is to eliminate the need for inline styles to ensure that certain HTML elements appear appropriately in feeds. Below are example screenshots of what the plugin is capable of.

Feed with no styles.A web feed - No styles applied

If you are good with CSS, have at least a little understanding of PHP, have a WordPress blog, and are willing to be a guinea pig, please leave a comment saying that you’re interested and I’ll e-mail you the test version with instructions.

Thanks.
