Travelog Plugin

Description

Installation

  1. Upload the ‘travelog’ folder from this archive to your /wp-content/plugins/ folder on your webserver.
  2. Active the “Travelog” plugin in WordPress’s Site Admin Plugins page.
  3. Modify your WordPress theme so that location information is displayed for posts in summary view. The easiest way to do this is to use the standard Travelog output function, travelog_summary_info(). This is done by adding the following code to your index.php file, right after the post title section. For the default theme, you would change:

<a href="” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to “>

<!– by –>

to be:

<a href="” rel=”bookmark” title=”Permanent Link to “>

<!– by –>

Make similar modifications to archive.php and search.php. Alternatively, You can create your own customized location information output using the Travelog’s PHP functions, which are listed and described below. 4. Modify your WordPress theme so that location information is displayed for posts in detail view. The easiest way to do this is to use the standard Travelog output function, travelog_single_info(). This is done by adding the following code to your single.php file, right after the post date information. For the default theme, you would change:

on at
and is filed under .

to be:

on at
and is filed under .

Again, you can create your own custom output using Travelog’s PHP functions listed and described below. 5. Review the Travelog options by clicking on Travelog on the Options page sub-menu of WordPress’s Site Admin. 6. Start adding locations to your Travelog by clicking on Travelog on the Manage page sub-menu of WordPress’s Site Admin

Usage & License

The Travelog plugin is licensed under the GPL (the same license that WordPress uses), and to sum it up, you can freely use, distribute and modify this plugin however you desire. If you do use it on your site, I’d appreciate you [http://www.sublimity.ca/2005/09/01/travelog/#coments leaving a comment on my site] telling me what you think about it, but it’s more to satisfy my curiousity about what ends up happening to this little project of mine than anything else, so it’s not a big deal.

If you find any bugs (I’m sure there are some in here), or have ideas about things you’d like to see in future releases of this plugin, [http://www.sublimity.ca/2005/09/01/travelog/#coments please let me know] (especially if you’d like to help implement them). I’ll do my best to implement suggestions, but I can’t make any rock-solid promises as there is more to life than coding…
