delicious-plus

Description

Produces output very similar to delicious’s linkrolls script, but in a way that isn’t guaranteed to mess with most themes.

Allows you to customize:

  • The number of links to display
  • Whether the link’s description is shown, if you provided one
  • Whether the link’s tags are shown
  • Whether the link’s favicon is shown
  • Showing only links with certain tags
  • And the ever-popular widget title

History

  • 1.2.1: Bump the WordPress version and get rid of some legacy mentions of
    “del.icio.us”.
  • 1.2: Update for the annoyingly backwards-incompatible nature of the new
    delicious.com design and v2 feeds api.
  • 1.1: Allow multiple instances of the widget.
  • 1.0: Initial release.

Screenshots

  • Example of the widget, displayed within the Simplr theme, with all options enabled.

Installation

  1. Upload deliciousplus.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Use the Widgets menu to place the widget within your layout

FAQ

Isn’t this really similar to the sample widget?

Yes. But the sample widget provided by Automattic in the initial widgets plugin release didn’t do what I wanted. I took that widget and made it much more configurable and feature-laden.

Can I style the widget’s appearance?

You should have all the hooks for CSS styling that you need. The widget produces html with the following layout:

div#deliciousplus-box
 ul
  li
   img
   a.deliciousplus-post
   span.deliciousplus-description
   span.deliciousplus-tags
    a
    a
    a

With slight variations, depending on which options you have enabled.

Reviews

Apparently doesn't work now

Was a great plugin, but delicious have changed their API or discontinued the feeds or something, so it doesn’t work anymore.

Edit: Found the solution. Just replace feed.delicious.com with previous.delicious.com in the PHP file.
