    Well, the only feature of Blogger that I don't have it a "Blog This" link. I have the WP Sidebar, but in Blogger, the link would automatically pick up the title from the site, as well as the address and start a blog session.
    The ability to change the author of a post would be nice.... I had a post I had to do three times because I kept posting it under the wrong login.....
    Uh, let's see.... what else.....
    I'm sure there's more... will add more later...

    TechGnome,
    I have a LINK IT! bookmarklet that works for WP. It's a FB/Mozilla one...but it's great.

    This is darn nice of you, Mark. I just wish that I had more experience with WP to even know what to ask for! :) I guess one thing I can think of is a script to add a current web site / blog to my LINKS menu on my blog. Maybe even a LINKS Manager to create custom setups for the menu? It would create the code to visually organize the links automagically by their assigned category. Right now I assume I would have to do this manually.
    Wow, once you start thinking, other stuff comes flooding in...how about a navigation builder that will build pages by category and you can have a link system to navigate to them automagically? :) It's all magic, when a coding wizard grabs hold of it and makes it come true, right?
    How about an application to auto-dial and order pizza from Domino's? LOL.
    Okay, I have nothing more...I'll shut up and let the next person come up with something reasonable.
    Craig.

    Fair enough, but what were the 'one or two things' you had to change? :)

    Okay, I didn't really pay attn when I did it the first time but I was able to do it again. Just replace....
    -------------
    // Start Connect To MYSQL
    require("b2config.php");
    include("$b2inc/b2vars.php");
    include("$b2inc/b2functions.php");
    dbconnect();
    -------------
    With....
    -------------
    // Start Connect To MYSQL
    require("wp-config.php");
    include("$b2inc/b2template.functions.php");
    include("$b2inc/b2vars.php");
    //include("$b2inc/b2functions.php");
    //dbconnect();
    -------------

    Thanks Armitage, got it working (although it's mighty un-purty. :))
    Just a note...it should be
    include("./b2-include/b2template.functions.php");
    include("./b2-include/b2vars.php");

    Hrm... I have that too... but it just adds the page to my Links list..... I was thinking more along the lines of the b2sidebar.php page, but would already have the title filled in with the page title, the title of the page already hyper linked in, and possibly have the URI pre-filled with the page's address.....
    Hrm..... I wonder if I can use the Blogger version as a spring board......
    [TG wanders off to go try a couple of experiments]... will post results...

    Yeah threaded comment as in LJ will be awesome.
    Really makes following the comments awesome.
    Also, the possibility of people (who comment) getting mails on further comments on their comments will be good. Again as in LJ.

    Links have categories, but to date I have found no way of displaying them in their categories. I have News, Misc and Photography links all jumbled up in one big list, it would be nice to be able to print it out in a sectioned list, with category headings.
    If this is possible already, I'd love to know how it's done, if not, get it in there!

    concerning threaded comments: yes, this is a feature I would like to see to be added. I do not have the time right at the moment to port the threading for comments I did within a php class i once wrote --> http://public.matthias-richter.de/phpmycoco but if someone starts doing threaded comments for WP he or she might wish to look how my implementation worked.

    Opera rules, everyone should try it for a month. Forget IE, they don't follow standards.
    Has anyone tried the clickable smilies on the user posting page yet? Those were never very clickable in opera tho.
    How about send/print this page hacks? Auto convert friends names to links? I'd also like to see some hacks so only people over level x can change the options for ping/passworded post/comments too. Some people see all these options and get confused.

    you could always restructure wordpress so that the index.php installs in the root and the wordpress files run in a subfolder...

    running multiple blogs from the same installation. without having to hack the templates. and most important having an admin area which supports multiple blog (like MT)

    How about a Nuclear Moose-proof way of setting up your templates to only display one category of posts per page with an auto-navigation generator to make CSS links to each category page?
    :)

    Oh, here's another one...a style switcher so that you can allow your readers to change the look of the site themselves. Check out Sara's excellent choices at http://www.southern-gal.com and you can see "blog skinning" at work!

    2) Link This - I have been missing this as well. I will have to look at the code for the link manager, but that is a good choice for me.

    -- doesnt't this already exist? In the Link Manager, aaaaaaaaall the way down at the bottom. There is a "Link This" link that I jsut dragged to my bookmark toobar.... I've been using for a few days now and it works great.
    That reminds me. I am going to hack the admin page to put the "Blog This!" link right on there so it can be easily dragged to the bookmarks. I'll post the chanes I made when I get it done.

    TechGnome, you know there's a "blog this" link already on the profile page, right?
