Social Media Integrated Related Content (SMIRC)

Version: 1.1 Like trackbacks, but not -- this plugin searches and displays content related to your CONTENT, not just posts that link to yours.

Isn't this just trackback?

No. Trackbacks are specifically meant to show relationships between posts, they do not care about the CONTENT of posts. SMIRC shows your users what the blogosphere is saying about the content in your post/page, not just the URL. Suppose you're an artist, and you created a painting and posted a page about it. Links to that page are not as important as people discussing your painting. SMIRC will allow you and your readers to follow those external discussions as simply as if they took place on your own blog.

What if I need a specific keyword attached to searches?

Edit SMIRC's settings and use the "Keyword" to add whatever you like.

What if I don't use jQuery?

SMIRC is functional without any JavaScript magic -- searching and parsing occurs server-side, not via AJAX. jQuery is used to animate a reveal of the results, but you can disable the animation in the settings admin panel. If you want the animation but are using scriptaculous or another animation framework, feel free to modify SMIRC source to allow for your framework's slide / reveal method.

Why did you write this plugin?

We (my company, EVB, where I am Director of Technology) needed to add external-but-related-content to a WordPress-powered site, and decided to build this plugin and release to the community.
