Category Subdomains Plugin for WordPress 2.5

The last few weeks I have been looking for a plugin for WordPress which would let me use subdomains of the site as a category, eg

http://goldfish.ilikefish.com

Which would list all the posts in the goldfish category.

I went off on a Google search and I found an old plugin called Subster Rejunevation, but it hadn’t been updated for a while and although someone else had modified it to work for WordPress 2.3.x, I still couldn’t get it to work.

I decided to have a look through the code to see if I could get it working for WordPress 2.5, not thinking I would have much luck, but a few hours later and I seem to have it working!

Obviously I haven’t done the majority of the work on this plugin, I have just modified it to work with the latest version, but the original author has said he doesn’t support it anymore so I thought I’d release it and change the name too just so that more people are likely to find it when trying to search for something to do the job.

So here it is: Download Category Subdomains Plugin for WordPress 2.5

It will now only work for WordPress 2.5, not any earlier versions, but that shouldn’t be a problem for anyone. If it doesn’t work for you or you find any problems, let me know and I’ll see what I can do πŸ™‚
