XRDS Plugin Update

Posted on

This plugin now lives at WordPress Extend.

I have updated my XRDS plugin for WordPress to allow for deleting XRDS services, and also to have a nice configuration UI for delegating an OpenID.  I have updated the tarball for both the XRDS plugin and the Pempeth plugin to include the new version.

Site Up, Videntity Down

Posted on

Hello loyal and less loyal readers!

Recently, my blog (and entire site, really) has been… down. Or at least dead slow. It was a problem with my cache plugin (wp-cache) which I have since resolved with the help of a friend.

You might be annoyed by my main page looking like it’s messed up. It draws its data from videntity.org, which is currently down. It probably should cache the data in the future to prevent this happening again.

If you want to see updates from me and this main site is down, check me out on Facebook or Xanga.

FreshTags’ Static Widgets

Posted on

This enhancement to FreshTags in response to Amit, who has been persistently requesting the feature in comments and a ticket. FreshTags now has the ability to generate widgets (from any source) which are locked on to a particular tag(s). For example:

<!-- FreshTags0.5-Singpolyma2 -->
<script type="text/javascript">
if(typeof(WidgetData) != 'object') WidgetData = {};
if(typeof(WidgetData['freshtags']) != 'object') WidgetData['freshtags'] = {};
WidgetData['freshtags']['freshtags_static'] = {
"type":"posts",
"source":"source",
"format":"drop",
"defs":"tags",
"force_defs":true,
"username":"del.icio.us username",
"url":"blog url",
"join_char":"/",
"tag_url":"/search/label/%tags%",
"sort":"alpha",
"rows":100
};
</script>
<script src="http://jscripts.ning.com/get.php?xn_auth=no&id=818185" type="text/javascript"></script>
<div id="freshtags_static"></div>
<a href="http://ghill.customer.netspace.net.au/freshtags/" title="Categories by FreshTags"><img alt="FreshTags" src=" http://ghill.customer.netspace.net.au/freshtags/freshtags-btn.png"/></a>
<!-- /FreshTags0.5-Singpolyma2 -->

The above code must (for new Blogger users) be inserted into a new HTML/JavaScript sidebar widget. Source (in red) must be either del.icio.us, blogger, or mediawiki (use blogger for labels on posts in the new Blogger). Defs (in red) should be a +-separated list of tags to load into the widget (or just one tag). Username (in blue) must be replaced with your del.icio.us username (if source is del.icio.us) or the whole line must be removed. URL (in blue) must be replaced with the full URL to your Blogger blog (ie, http://you.blogspot.com/) if source is blogger or the whole line must be removed. Join_char (in blue) must be / if source is blogger and + otherwise.

The ID (in purple) is fine to leave if you are only going to insert this widget once. For the second, third, etc widgets you must change it to something like freshtags_static2. The higher reference (also in purple) to freshtags_static must also be changed. Second, third, etc widgets do not need the <script> tag that is in purple near the end.

If you have any questions, just ask!

Videntity Bookmarklet Update

Posted on

I have made some updates to my Videntity Bookmarklet.  Besides hCards and Facebook links, it now also supports search results from wink.com.  So now you can search for people and then add them directly to your friends list!

Update to Videntity WordPress Plugin

Posted on

I have updated my WordPress plugin for Videntity.org integration. It now includes options to import your friends/contacts or your profile (or both!) from Videntity to WordPress. Just go to ‘Videntity’ under the ‘Options’ tab in your administration interface.

Some notable things not imported in the profile import:

  • Instant Messeging information
  • Video
  • Photo
  • Only the first URL (Website) is imported

The ‘additional name’ (ie, middle name) is imported, but into a field called ‘additonal_name’, which is not displayed anywhere by default on WordPress.
