    @alexkingorg

    I’ve released WordPress 1.2 compatible plugins of many of my WordPress hacks:

    • WordPress Mobile Edition – a PDA/cell phone friendly interface
    • WP Since Last Visit – indicate new posts and comments
    • WP Style Switcher – change the look of your site
    • WP Grins – clickable smilies
    • WP Plugin Auto-loader – auto-load your plugins

    Post support questions in this thread.

    While everyone is visiting Alex’s site, I’d suggest picking up his Tasks 2.0 software…it’s helping me keep three different sites organised. He offers a free 21-day trial. It’s certainly worth checking out!
    Thanks for the plugins, Alex!

    Just read that on his site, now I have to try them. Course, I am already using the style switcher and it still works after updating to 1.2 and have WPGrins in the comments. I’ll have to see what has changed.

    Alex, concering the style switcher, is there a way to get it to work on static pages not in the wp folder? So that the styles would be consistent throughout the site, and so you could change the style from any page (main, about, blog, gbook, etc.).
    I fiddled around for a while, even moving my-hacks.php and wp-style-switcher.php to the main folder, and edited the copied wp-style-switcher.php to point towards “/blog/wp-style” instead of just “wp-style.”
    I get the list of styles to show up, however, no default style is loaded, and whenever I click on the link to change styles it brings me back to my blog index page instead of the page its located on.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Thanks for the Tasks plug NM, I appreciate it. 🙂
    theoretikaL, did you add:
    <style> @import url( <?php wp_stylesheet(); ?> ); </style>
    to your other pages?

    Alex is the KING. I haven’t managed to upgrade from my 1.01(?) version to 1.2 yet (i confess… I’m skeered to mess at the moment) … but I sure am looking forward to using plugins instead of hacks.
    I second the <uncontrollable drooling> expressed by NuclearMoose.

    There isn’t really much difference between plugins and hacks. All the plugin activation/de-activation means is you don’t have to edit the my-hacks.php page. It’s basically a cleaner implementation of the same thing.

    Using the 12th nightly.
    Put the php file in the /plugins, activated it, yet get this error
    “Warning: main(wp-last-visit.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/–path–/html/blog/index.php on line 28”
    My error ?

    what is on line 28 in index.php?

    <?php $wplastvisit_output = "javascript"; require('wp-last-visit.php'); ?>

    Hi Alex. Thanks for the smilies plugin. I also tried out the “wp-last-visit” and got a similar error to podz. The line he’s quoting is the actual “include” line. I solved it by doing this.
    <?php $wplastvisit_output = “javascript”; require(‘wp-content/plugins/wp-last-visit.php’); ?>
    which gives the full path to the file. Don’t know if that means the plugin activation isn’t working properly but the plugin is now working.

    That did the trick 🙂
    Thanks !

    I could have sworn I’d fixed that in the docs, but it wasn’t in the zipped version. Fixed now.

    Gosh. Does that mean I did something right??

    I don’t know why it is an issue for me and not others (or it would have been mentioned here) but $siteurl no longer works for me – ’tis better if get_settings(‘siteurl’) is used.

    I figured out the missing directories in step 3, but steps 4, 6, and 7 are too vague as to where the lines are supposed to be inserted. Step 7 seems to jump back to index.php but it’s not clear about that. I gave it a try but it didn’t work. Oh well.
