Twick.it

Description

This plugin adds some Twick.it functions into your wordpress blog.

First you can mark phrases with a [twickit] tag. The plugin looks up the phrase at Twick.it. If there is a definition for the phrase it will be shown both as a tooltip and with a link to the adequate page
at Twick.it.

If you want the plugin to find any word with a corresponding Twick.it-definition in a paragraph you can
surround the textblock with [twickitall]. The plugin will look up any word in the marked block.

Last but not least you can enable the so called Marker-Popup-Feature. If enabled your readers can mark any phrase in your blog to look it up at Twick.it. After marking a text with the cursor a small popup
will show the available definitions at Twick.it.

Installation

  1. Upload twickit_links.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Configure the plugin at the config page
  4. Mark text with [twickit]foo bar[/twickit] in posts or comments to add a link to Twick.it

FAQ

The phrase I like to link to differs from the marked words. How can I arrange that?

Just specify the word you like to limk to in the [twickit]-Tag like this:
I like [twickit word="cookie"]cookies[/twickit].
