Notable Update

Dear Reader,

Minor feature added and a bug fix. Thanks to this conversation, I’ve figured out that I really need to urlencode the urls before placing them in the href. So I’ve done that. In the process, I noticed that I left furl out of the list. There was a checkbox on the admin page for it but it wasn’t displaying.

Finally, I added a select box to select the type of spacer between the graphics. There are several silly options like a dash but the main ones of importance are nbsp, space and no space. Those are the ones that most people are going to be using.

You can grab the code from the project page.

As always, questions, comments and items off my Amazon wishlist are always welcome.

Until next time,

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,
