WP Social Blogroll

WP Social Blogroll adds a social blogroll to your blog. It will follow and display all updates of the sites in your blogroll.

Download the archive and extract all files.

Upload the archive and the files to the plugin-directory of your blog. This should be

  • /wp-content/plugins/feed-reading-blogroll/*

After that, all files should be located at that directory.

Now, go to the plugins-section of your dashboard, look for the entry called Feed Reading Blogroll and press activate.

Furthermore, the plugin will create a JavaScript file in your WordPress content-directory (normally, this is /wp-content/). Therefore, this directory must be writable (chmod 777) at the moment, the Javascript-file is created for the first time. After that, the content-directory does not need to be writable as far as this plugin is concerned. I would recommend the following procedure:

  • Set /wp-content/ to chmod 777, e.g. by using your ftp-client.
  • Go to the plugin's option-page. This will let the plugin create the JavaScript-file.
  • Go back to your ftp-client and go to /wp-content/. You should find a file called feedreading_blogroll.js in it. Perfect! The plugin will now be able to overwrite this file, even if /wp-content/ is no longer writable, so ...
  • ... set the directory /wp-content/ back to chmod 755, while letting the rights of feedreading_blogroll.js remain chmod 777.

Finally, an optional step:

  • You may save your own Google API Key at the plugin's option-panel and add the blogroll-widget to your blog's sidebar.
