Due an Update to WordPress Post Plugins

Version 2.3.7 of the post plugins should be out soon. I’ve been making a bunch of little changes to provide some asked for features. The delay has been in the next version of Similar Posts which has undergone some major revisions including stemming and global word weighting. It also lets you configure the balance of content, title how to get viagra illegaly and tags (new) to get the most relevant posts for your particular blog. That’s meant some major architectural changes which I am trying to test before releasing. Also, since tag-based relevance is now included I’ve scrapped the ability to add keywords to a custom field.

WordPress Plugin: Highlight Author Comments

Just posted a rather simple plugin to highlight the comments Order cialis no rx made by the author of a post among all the other comments.

I’ve seen lots of ways of doing the job but they all seem to involve hacking the code of your template or of WordPress files. The new plugin does the job automatically — all you have to do is provide a snippet of CSS to apply to the special comments.

Fix Some Things, Break Some Things

In updating my post plugins to work with WordPress 2.3 I managed to break various things too. Versions 2.3.2, just posted, fix a bad interaction between tags and categories and correct issues with excluded categories.

I might be able to extend the plugins to do viagra canada prescription something useful with tags now that I understand them a little better.

Feeds Fixed

I noticed about an hour ago that this site’s feeds were not working and hadn’t been working since around December 20th. After checking the source and then deactivating all my plugins one by one I found the culprit and zapped the error.

So… feeds should be working again … and I learned a little more about how WordPress works in the process.
