    Sorry, totally forgot the layout stuff... You can style the items in your stylesheet with these identifiers and containers...

    #rumwallform input.styled, #rumwallform textarea {
    ...
    }

    #rumwallform table {
    ...
    }

    #rumwallbtn {
    ...
    }

    #rumwallform textarea {
    ...
    }

    #rumwall div.wallcontent {
    ...
    }

    #rumwall div.wallheader {
    ...
    }

    #rumwall div.wallheader a {
    ...
    }

    Hope that helps macmouse...

    Tested it in a test on my testblog on a testversion of wp 1.5 :), and it's working very nice! I have to adjust the layout to fit my weblog, but it's very easy to use the wall.php as an include in my index.php file. I really like it. I'm just waiting for a few minor changes in the rumGallery plugin and a number of images I still have to collect and modify to fit into the rumGallery before I put them up on my official weblog.

    My compliments and thanks for the work you're doing here Dan.

    Hey all. I don't really understand much about WordPress, but I belive that I did everything right, but this plugin wont work.

    When acessing http://www.bits.webhs.org/bitaites/wall.php, I get this error: Parse error: parse error, unexpected '.', expecting ')' in /home/bits/public_html/bitaites/wall.php on line 24

    What can be wrong? Also, I have Activated the plugin, but I can't see where to configure it.

    Thanks a lot.

    Are you using (the officialy not yet released) version 1.5? Because otherwise it won't work. Also not forget to put the other files in the wright directories.

    Dan: Is this plugin vulnerable to spam, just like with commentspam?

    Websp:
    uhm a parse error... doesnt sound good... could you make a copy of the wall.php into a file called wall.phps, so i can se what might have been wrong in your case?

    And you will need to use version 1.5+ (a nightly build) of wordpress to make use of the plugin...

    Moxie (Hi jack, hehe):
    I have implemented some of the spam functions as are "builtin" into wordpress... I have applied filters so spam filters subscribing to these events will trigger and handle the tag-wall too... Im using spam-karma myself on my blog, but it is built-up in such a way that it couldnt be used unless i used the comment database table for storing the tags, and for now, Im not...

    Maybe I should contact the author of spam-karma and make some of the functionality content based and not so "comment-based"... :)

    Hi,

    First of all it's a great little plugin. Was easy to install but got one problem when I implement it to my current design and one smaller challenge.

    1. When i click on "drop tag!" and write in a message then everything work just fine. But when i click "taq it" i get this error message (the message do appear on the site though):
    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /hsphere/local/home/samdesign/sean.journeypix.com/wall.php:7) in /hsphere/local/home/samdesign/sean.journeypix.com/wall.php on line 37

    Guess it got something to do with my get_header or something but can't find out how to solve the problem.

    2. When people write in a URL in "Website" they have to add http:// first, if not the URL won't work properly from the message. Most people will forget to write that first, is it possible to add to the script that http:// is added if the visitor doesn't add it?

    URL to my guestbook is:
    http://sean.journeypix.com/wall.php

    URL to the code of my guestbook is:
    http://sean.journeypix.com/wall.phps

    All help is appreciated. Thanks :-)

    Hi Sean,


    <?
    $offset = (int) $_GET['offset'];
    $wall = new RumWall($offset);
    if (isset($_POST['sub']))
    {
    $author = trim(strip_tags($_POST['author']));
    $email = trim(strip_tags($_POST['email']));
    $url = trim(strip_tags($_POST['url']));
    $content = trim(strip_tags($_POST['content']));
    if (strlen($author) > 0 && strlen($content) > 0)
    {
    if ($wall->SaveTag($author, $email, $url, $content))
    {
    header("location: wall.php");
    }
    }
    }
    ?>

    Take this and paste right after:

    <?php /* Don't remove this line. */ require('./wp-blog-header.php'); ?>

    Then it will work...

    Hi there, could a wonderful person post a copy of the plugin source? It seems the download link at rummanddan.dk is returning a 404.

    I uploaded it on my site so you can get it from there for now:
    http://sean.journeypix.com/files/RumWall-0.01.tar.gz

    Will remove it as soon as I see that rummanddan.dk's download link is up and working again.

    Hi RummandDan,

    Any idea how I can fix this: http://estuntick.com/blog/wall.php
    It doesn't fit in with the template, but so far, it's a pretty awesome plugin.

    Might I suggest, for future versions, to have something like the WP-ContactForm 1.0--where all you have to do where you want the contact form to show, is type: "<!--contact form-->" in that page administration, and the contact form shows.

    I think that would fix a lot of the layout problems. *nods*

    Thanks!

    Hi eStunt,

    Thats a good idea, i have recently created a new "template" thats downloadable from my site, thats is generel in the "spirit of kubrick" :)

    But a page part as well is a good idea...

    And sorry for the server problems... I had a minor power brakedown that crashed the harddisc that the website source was running on, not all my plugins was backed up, but rumwall and rumgallery was so they should be running again...

    Hi RummandDan,

    This plugin is really great, but I have a problem removing the sidebar, because the input form doesn't fit in the page...
    e.g. when you press "Drop tag" it shows the input form, which goes over the gray sidebar...
    Is there any tags, that can be removed from the script to make the sidebar to disappear..?

    You cal also have a look... http://www.basp.lv/portal/wall.php

    Thanx in advance..!

    Dan, thanks for the plugin which looks nice in action. I like the simplicity.

    Sorry for my newie question: WTF went wrong with my installation?I downloaded the installer, expanded it with winrar on my local pc, uploaded the files to the directories and installed the plugin with WP. Now I get an error message that required tables does not exist:
    WordPress database error: [Table 'astriddb.wp_rumtags' doesn't exist]
    SELECT count(*) FROM wp_rumtags WHERE moderated = 'n'

    WordPress database error: [Table 'astriddb.wp_rumtags' doesn't exist]
    SELECT * FROM wp_rumtags WHERE moderated = 'n' ORDER BY posted DESC LIMIT 0, 50

    (http://www.insert.dk/weblog/wall.php).

    The installation instructions said "tar xvfz RumWall-xxxx.tar.gz". I have no idea what this means :-( I have FTP access to my server and probably some way of accessing the mySQL but I'm really lost in that area.

    Is there something to do? Any help would be much appreciated.

    It works at my install rusty... Try to deactive and activate the plugin again... Do you get any error's or so on the page?

    I'm using WP 1.5 with RumWall. I've got the plugin activated and it created a new table in my database. The problem is that when I try to drop a tag, no entries are written to my database.

    Do you have any idea what could be the issue?

    ChillPenguin try to go to WP-Admin > Options > RumWall

    Check the "Disable spam protection" checkbox...
