Imeem Search Plugin


If you are like me and are tired of having to do so much work to add content to your wordpress site, then here is a plugin you might find useful. After playing around with WordPress and a plugin called WP-TwitterSearch (great plugin by the way), it felt the need to create my own plugin.

The Imeem plugin, was designed for music lovers and musician. It looks at the tags used for the post (so pick them wisely) and then queries It searches Imeem for all playlists which use the same tags as the ones provided in the post. If there is a match it uses the highest relevance value to then pull back information. Got it?
