Pinoy WordPress Plugin: Sideblog

September 13, 2010 | 1 Comment

Want to write about miscellaneous topics, but they don’t quite fit into the main purpose of your blog? Sideblog, created by Ilonggo developer Kates Gasis, is a great solution to that.

Choose at least one category to use in your sideblog, then configure how it will be displayed (typically as a list) and how many will be displayed. Finally, you can also set whether these sideblog posts will appear in your feeds.

Pinoy WordPress Plugin: Facebook Like Button Widget

April 23, 2010 | 1 Comment

The Facebook Like Button Widget plugin lets your readers use the Like functionality from Facebook right on your blog and display it instantly in your FB activity stream.

Plugin author AJ Batac made this soon after Facebook’s announcement about opening up its platform via the Open Graph protocol, the Graph API, and Social plugins. The Like Button is the first of these. Although you can install the feature manually from this page, using the WP plugin is certainly more convenient.

1) Download the “Facebook-Like-Button-Widget.zip” file
2) Extract and upload `facebook-like-widget.php` to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
3) Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
4) That’s it!

Pinoy WordPress Plugin: Strip!

December 3, 2008 | No Comments Yet

Strip! is a WordPress plugin by Markku Seguerra that “strips” away links inside comments. (Don’t worry, you can put them back.)

I developed Strip! because of an interesting trend in the behavior of my commenters: some would respond to my share their thoughts on a given post, but unfortunately link to some off-topic pages at the bottom of their comment. Typically, I can just mark the comment as spam or disapprove it, or just delete it. But there are times when the on–topic part of their comment is admittedly necessary and helpful to the discussion — this is where I use my Strip! plugin.

Interesting note: if you attended WordCamp Philippines and attended his talk, this is the plugin he was demonstrating then.

Pinoy WordPress Plugin: Technorati Tags for WordPress 2.3

February 21, 2008 | No Comments Yet

Will Garcia has written a WordPress plugin that displays Technorati tags for a post in place of its local tags.

After a few minutes of tinkering with the core files, I decided to try making a plugin that would mimic Ultimate Tag Warrior’s ability to display Technorati tags, a feature that I sorely miss, having to let go of the plugin I have come to know and love. I definitely know I have to do something about it. It’s the OCD-ridden kid in me that just has to scratch this itch.

I created this plugin so that anyone who wants their posts listed as Technorati tagged posts. That way, you get more traffic (hopefully) from Technorati. This is also something I want my blog to have, and I think I’m not alone on this one. In case I am, well, I still did it for me. What are personal blogs for but your own person, right?
