WordPress Online-Status Update

Dear Reader,

Several people have helped me work out a couple of bugs, kinks and general uki-ness in what has become my most popular plugin.  This is not a major update so don’t feel pressured to upgrade. However, if you are running into a problem with the plugin, this may solve it.

Project Page

The current version is 1.1

Please read the instructions on the project page if you are upgrading. I’m in the process of standardizing all of my BlogBling plugins and some things have changed.

As always, questions, comments and pizza are always welcome.

Until next time,

New WordPress Plugin – Alexadex

Dear Reader,

Yep, that time again. Let’s play PLUG-IN!

I was surfing around the other day and saw a cool site www.alexadex.com. If your site is tracked by alexa.com then this site allows you to purchase shares in your or any other blog. (Funny money of course) It’s a pretty cool game. But I want everybody to be able to watch the rise and fall of my site’s value. So I write a quick plugin for it.

The project page has instructions on how to install and configure.

This is yet another in the BlogBling seriese of fun but mostly useless plugins for WordPress. As always, have fun with it.

Questions, comments and items off my Amazon Wishlist are always welcome.

Until next time,

WP-Alexify Updated

Dear Reader,

Yep, it’s that time again. Time to start updating the BlogBling plugins. Hey, if I don’t make some change every week, how do you expect me to sustain my hit rate? :)

WP-Alexify has been updated. This is a major change. I removed the JavaScript I was using to display the tooltip and went with the wz_tooltip.jz library. This should fix the Safari comparibility issue.

Also, I’m consolidating all of the BlogBling plugins into a single directory. This should make it easier for me to share code among them, reducing the amount of code I have to distribute. So make sure you read the update instructions if you are already running Alexify.

Finally, this one contains my BlogBling updater code. It phones home every 7 days and sees if there is a new version available. It does not collect any information about you, your server or anything else. It just tells me which plugin to check and then gives you the current version number. If you don’t like this you can set the Check Interval to 0 and it will never check again.

Until next time,

Notable – Another WordPress plugin

Dear Reader,

Grab your hip-waders and don your helmets boys, we are going in. Yep, I’ve released yet another plugin in my series. This one puts a bar of icons at the bottom of each post allowing your readers to submit your posts to several different social networking and bookmarking sites. (del.icio.us, digg, fark, etc.)

As with most of my plugins, this isn’t a unique idea, just my implementaion of it. Many thanks to Kirk Montgomery for the graphics.

The project page and installation instructions can be found here.

Or if you are already suited up and ready to go, grab the tarball here and head on in.

As always questions and comments are always welcome.

Until next time,
