WP Tags to Technorati

Description

This plugin will create technorati tags from native WordPress tags

Options

  1. Text that appears to the left of the tags can be adjusted by
    changing the “Technorati Tags label” field.

  2. Enabling the “Open Technorati Link in new window?” option will cause
    the generated links to open in a new window.

  3. Enabling the ‘Add rel=”nofollow” to generated links?’ option will
    cause the geenerated links to have nofollow added to the rel
    attribute on the technorati links (they already have a ‘tag’
    attribute).

Advanced Usage

If you wish to include the technorati tags in a different place on a page,
you can disable the “Include tags in post footer?” option and modify your
blogs theme to echo the output of the ‘tags2tech_get_tags_links()’
function inside the wordpress ‘loop’.

NOTE: In previous versions of the plug-in the tags2tech_get_tags_links()
call needed to be echo’ed. This is no longer required, although the old
functionality will still work.

As I am not a professional PHP programmer, I relied heavily on the plug-in
work of a few others …

FAQ

Works it with all WordPress versions?

This version works with WordPress 2.3.0 and better. It’s dependent on the new
Wordpress tagging feature.
