Delicious Readings

Publish your readings on your WordPress blog using your Delicious Bookmarks.

This plugin allows you to publish some of your Delicious bookmarks on your blog: it retrieves the bookmarks from a specific tag and publishes them on your sidebar.

It could be useful, for example, to publish your readings on the Web. Let's say that you read a webpage and bookmark it as "readings". This plugin can get the bookmarks from the tag "readings" (or whatever it is) and display them on a widget in your sidebar. You can also use a shortcode if you want to display your reading list on a static page or on a single post.

The plugin may display for each tag:

  • The title with link
  • The description if any
  • The date of the bookmark
  • The tags assigned to the bookmark
  • The link to the entire archive of that tag on Delicious

After the plugin's activation, you will have a new widget in Appearance / Widgets.

Usage as shortcode

You can also use the plugin's shortcode to display your list on a static page or on a single post. Use:

[dreadings feed_url="http://delicious.com/v2/rss/USERNAME/TAG-NAME"]

Change USERNAME and TAG-NAME as required.

In the widget you can use the full set of options. So, for example, if you want to display the tags, use:

[dreadings feed_url="http://delicious.com/v2/rss/USERNAME/TAG-NAME" display_tags=true]

Usage as PHP function

You can also use the main PHP function directly in your theme. Add these lines where you want it be displayed:

if ( function_exists( 'dr_fetch_feed' ) ) {
    $args = array(
        'feed_url'         => '',
        'quantity'         => 5,
        'display_desc'     => false,
        'truncate'         => 0,
        'display_date'     => false,
        'date_text'        => 'Stored on:',
        'display_tags'     => false,
        'tags_text'        => 'Tags:',
        'display_hashtag'  => true,
        'display_arrow'    => false,
        'display_archive'  => true,
        'archive_text'     => 'More posts',
        'display_arch_arr' => true,
        'new_tab'          => false,
        'nofollow'         => true,
    );
    dr_fetch_feed( $args );
}

Make sure to properly use the opening and closing tags <?php and ?> respectively.

The only mandatory option is feed_url. Also change USERNAME and TAG-NAME as required. The other options are the default options which you can change according your needs. It isn't necessary to insert all of them.
