About Me

Hi there, I’m Noor Alam, the guy behind noorsplugin. I’m a passionate web developer/designer, skilled in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP and WordPress. I have a bachelor’s degree in computer science (majored in software engineering) from the University of Wollongong, Australia.

I have over 10 years of experience in WordPress building websites, plugins, and themes. My first WordPress project was a handy little plugin that would allow users to shorten a specific URL. Unfortunately, It was discontinued because WordPress stopped allowing plugins that fall under the “link cloaking” category. Since then I have worked on countless projects helping people build websites and establish their online businesses.

Currently, I have 25+ free plugins in the WordPress repository (some with over 40,000 active installs) and a few child themes. I’m trying to build a better community by offering more and more plugins for free and providing quality support for it.

I’m happily married and an avid food lover who’s always keen to try out new dishes. I’m also into movies, music, thriller books, sports, gaming, vlogging and various outdoor activities such as hiking, badminton, soccer, cricket. Lately, I have found a new interest in resistance training.

Occasionally I get a little obsessed with World of Warcraft (especially arena) and playing different classes (If you are a Wow fan you should understand that). All in all, life’s good. And I’m really thankful for it.

  1. Hi there,
    I’m working with the wordpress Watson-child theme. I don’t understand why after installing the plugin it doesn’t convert to the button image but remains the text? Any clue as to why I can’t get the plugin to work? Viewers see this:

  3. Thanks for the youtube plugin! I just had an odyssey of installing and throwing away I guess 10 other ones, and all of them turned out to be a complete configuration desaster or failed in doing their main job, nicely embedding some videos in a responsive way, not presenting any dumbfucked black bars etc. Good to see, that there are at least some wordpress plugin developers around, that understand their business! Thanks again!
