How'd WordPress do that? (7 posts)

    Hi, I was Googling wordpress and I found that if you just Google "wordpress" you'll see a little navigation of sorts under the description on the google result.

    Here's how it reads:
    "Support - About › Screenshots - Themes - Download
    More results from wordpress.org »"

    Now, how did WordPress do that? Is that a Google Sitemaps thing? Can I do that for my sites?

    THANKS
    CORY

    It's a Google thing. You can't choose to have it.

    They use this format for the top listing on popular keywords (e.g. real estate). The 4 links are usually to the 4 highest-PR pages that are linked from the home page, and the anchor text is normally the text from that page.

    Well, aren't you all a bunch of lucky ducks. I guess I'll have to go and invent a really useful and awesome product and then distribute it to the masses for free.

    Mmm, how about the fade action after I make a posting here? Can you tell me how to do that?

    Just kidding. Thanks.

    Not "how", but what, if you really want to know. I'm no programmer, so "how" is beyond me!

    My guess is that it's something to do with a fade JavaScript file for the replies to when someone posts one. The answers to the two questions above might also be found in one of the following javascripts files. I dunno, just a guess lol.

    Also, remember this is also a forum, not just "blog". When I used phpBB we had mods to add that gave us "fade in" and "fade out" characteristics to the links and forum columns.

    I'm not sure if adding them links above would upset anyone, but it's in the source code, so what's the harm lol..? Anyway..I could be wrong....I dunno..

    P.S. "Well, aren't you all a bunch of lucky ducks. I guess I'll have to go and invent a really useful and awesome product and then distribute it to the masses for free. "

    Nah. It's an Ajax thing.... and nope, no one will mind about the links. I didn't post that earlier since the guy posted "just kidding" - figured he already knew it all....

    "- figured he already knew it all...." Hahaha... he prolly does lol!! Mmm...Ajax...I just took a real quick glance at the topic.js file and thought maybe that's part of the reason why it's doing it lol.... but Ajax is some interesting stuff. =)
