Famos WordPress plugin


The famos plugin augments the authoring environment by providing annotation suggestions as posts and/or comments are being written. A variety of annotation options are provided, including direct links to famos topic pages, an aggregate search popup (the famos spotlight), and several other types.

Readers can also pull up the famos spotlight by selecting elements within the page; the spotlight uses the selected elements as the basis for its initial search results.

Any annotations followed by readers which result in economic activity will have a portion of those monies attributed back to the page author and/or WordPress site owner, who can collect those monies by providing famos with payment information.
