Spicy Blogroll

Spices up your regular Blogroll by showing an Ajax popup with post excerpts for each link in your Blogroll. Fully customizable via settings page.

Spicy Blogroll will bring life to an otherwise static Blogroll. It shows a number of post excerpts for each link in your Blogroll using Ajax.

When your visitor hovers over a Blogroll link the RSS feed from the site is discovered and a number of recent posts is shown dynamically in a popup box. Each post excerpt includes the post date, a clickable title and the excerpt. You choose the length of the excerpt and whether or not the click opens the post in the same or a new window/tab.

Spicy BlogRoll makes use of internal caching for feed discovery and WordPress caching for RSS feeds to make sure everything is smooth for your visitor.

Practically everything can be customized in the options panel including pop-up width and height, number of posts to show, excerpt length, RSS timeout delay, opacity, link click option (open link in new or parent window) and all the text and error messages. The overall style mimics the existing theme of your blog.

Spicy Blogroll allows you to spread more link love to your favorite bloggers and encourages click-throughs to them. Encourage those on your Blogroll to install this plugin on their blog and link back to you for your link love in return.

Plugin by Michael Pedzotti. Concept is based on the Live Blogroll plugin by Vladimir Prelovac but with a really slick options page with many more adjustable options.
