This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest three major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Actionable allows the creation of a categroized list of action items for users to check off and track. It was originally developed for Share 350.0 – a plan for regional sustainability to help people track their actions and efforts to create a sustainable community.


  • Actionable in Action


  1. Extract to your wp-content/plugins directory.
  2. In the admin panel under plugins activate Actionable.
  3. View the Actionable admin panel under the Manage menu.
  4. Add the text <!--actionable form--> to the page you want the plugin to appear.

At this time you must manually add categories and actions. I am working to complete the admin panel of actionable to allow the addition of categories and actions from the admin panel.

You are able to view current actions and categories as well as some elementary statistics from the admin panel which resides under the manage menu.


Can you tell me how to add actions and categories?

The easiest way is to use either phpMyAdmin or mySQL GUI tools to directly edit the database. You should look for tables called wp_actionable and wp_actionable_categories (wp_ is the default WordPress database prefix – if you have changed this look for the table names with your prefix.) Create some categories in _actionable_categories first then create some actions in _actionable_actions assigning actionable_id in _actionable_categories to actionable_cat in _actionable_actions for the appropriate action.

The next release will allow for category and action creation from the admin panel

Can I add my own styles?

Yes, just edit the file wp-content/plugins/actionable/css/styles.css.
