BETA - Show Favicons in front of links in content, comments, widgets; scan pages, roots, google s2, geticons for favicons; apply image filters to favi
This plugin puts a recognizable icon before each link; it makes your website lively and recognizable: Compare listings of dull links to listings with an icon before it: users will instantly recognize the familiar icons to your benefit. Compare this with the desktop on your computer: 100 links in plain text or 100 links with app icons, what do you prefer? Exactly!
The server will search for an icon only every 30 seconds (default) and in the meanwhile use Google for icons so you will SLOWLY build a good icon base. On top of that the client requests are transient cached on 1 hour (default) so every unique request only call the server once each hour (and even then only if a visitor hits that page). On top of that the server has a transient cache also on 1 hour (default). So ... it will build up very slowly with performance and being nice to your database and providers in mind. However notice that if you have a lot of outgoing links the server will grow to a large database (it stores all requests and icons).
The plugin uses a plugin framework (GPLv2) so you can also copy the framework and make your own plugin around it. If you have improvements on it please send them to me.
The plugin is ready for internationalization but since I still intent to make a lot of changes full translation will happen in a later release. I also need to write some of the inline help.
