Just an update. I was brainstorming while at work. If there would be interest in developing something like this I think it would be cool and possibly easier for searching on the web a section in the options of the plugin to put predefined sites in to search from. For instance since I would be interested in mostly sports articles and recaps, I could put in ESPN, Yahoo, etc.. and once the post is submitted, it searches those sites for related links.
Such a hefty request from someone who doesn’t know the first thing about writing a plugin LOL!
Thanks in advance again guys.
Obviously someone read this to moderate my sig? Anyone have any ideas they can throw my way?
for the record, I’m looking for this exact plugin as well. Anyone know if it exists or am I going to have to try and create it myself?
I am working on a project like this now, and it will be released at february at lenky.net , it will offer external related links at the end of each topic, these external related links may be videos, images, other blog posts, … etc.
and more features for SEO
Lenky is now done and ready to be downloaded, hope that it is what you want
download from here: http://lenky.net/download/lenkyex1.0.2.zip
i tested it on WordPress version 2.3 RC1 and it worked well, check your error log and tell me what you got
What happens is the blog will only display the header no posts no sidebars
that is of course because of an error, check your error log, and submit it here or in our feedback in lenky.net
Cheaper, this problem is solved, you can download the latest version from here http://lenky.net/blog/2008/02/15/new-version-104-beta/
At first this plugin did not work for me, the links never showed up. The problem, however, was not the plugin but my server. The server uses a firewall that blocks all outgoing links/addresses called by php to prevent rogue/hacking programs from using the server. Lenky uses a php call to his server to get the links. I white listed the domain and now Lenky works (almost) fine in WP 2.3.3
While the plugin now works I am getting errors in my log file..
PHP Warning: hxxp://www.couchmouse.net/xxx/xxx/plugins/lenkyex/cache/aa70b35819fbb0a15347f34f70ecdbc1.spc is not writeable
It seems the files Lenky creates in the cache folder are not being chmod to 777 and simplepie.inc is trying to write to them.
Any fix to this Lenky?
First make sure that you have latest version of lenky plugin installed in your blog, then make sure that the /cache folder is writable and then check again your error log.
if that error still appears, you can contact me using lenky feedback form so we can solve this together.
