Torrents have been in the news a lot lately. The movie and music industries are going out of their way to clamp down on our internet freedoms to stop piracy in the process. Of course, not all torrents point to illegally copied content. Many bands, software makers, and other professionals use torrents to share their works with their fans. WP-Trader is a cool plugin that turns your website into a torrent tracker in a flash.
WP Trader lets you share your work with the world without your server costs going through the roof. The script is highly customizable. You can control your torrent table, description, and directory. It does have members only and other settings to make managing your torrent size convenient. Users do get the option to delete everything if they need to. Torrents can be made into posts.
WP-Trader remains a work in progress. You should not use this to share illegal copies of copyrighted material as it could get you in trouble. But for those of you with large, legal files to share, WP-Trader can be a game changer.
