Just Unzip takes a zip file you upload from the "Write" page, unzips it, stores the zipped files in your upload folder, and associates the unzipped files with the current post. Just Unzip makes use of the PclZip php library (LGPL Licensed).


This plugin complies with all wordpress plugin development guidelines so the codex instructions for plugins can also be followed.

Requirements (that I know of)

Wordpress 2.0.x (WP 2.1 is not yet supported. The next release will include WP 2.1 support, and is due out 2007-02-22)


  1. unzip the archive you downloaded to a local folder.
  2. upload the just-unzip folder to the wp-content/plugins/ folder. see the wordpress codex for more details on plugin installation.
  3. activate the plugin from the plugins page in wp admin.

Now you can upload zip files into a post and the zipped files will become attached to the post. Cool, eh?


  1. Follow the Uninstall Instructions below.
  2. Follow the installation instructions above.

Uninstall Instructions

  1. Deactivate your current version of Just Unzip.
  2. Delete the just-unzip folder from your wp-content/plugin folder on the remote site.




  • Added a compatibility function which were not in WP 2.0.3 and earlier


  • Corrected version information in meta and install text.


  • Added a checkbox to the upload form so you can keep (attach) the uploaded zip file as well.
