Support » Plugins and Hacks » Need a plugin? – taking a request

  • Once again, I am taking requests for a plugin.

    I have quite a few different projects I am working on right now, so please do not ask for anything too complex.

    I will take the first request that I like (mainly meaning – have time for).

    Any takers? 🙂

  • My offer actually expired last night 😛

    But seriously, all three of those might be a bit more than I have time for right now. I will keep them in mind though!

    Aleister,

    i had a quick one… in my photo blog, how do i show a summary of the blog like this one http://mocoloco.com/archives/cat_architecture.php
    without having the viewer scroll all the way till the next entry?

    also, how do tell wordpress where to put “continue reading”?

    here’s my blog http://www.parameters.cc/blog

    great if you can help!
    many thanks

    parameters,

    Are you referring to the little about box they have at the very top of their sidebar? If so, you do not need a plugin for this – it can just be added into your sidebar template file.

    Also, WordPress sticks the ‘continue reading’ link wherever you stick the ‘more’ tag (using the ‘more’ button).

    I would like to see a plugin something like “I was here” comment. Ppl that just dont know what to say, they can just click a button and publish their name and link as if they wrote something usefull.

    Sainty, you can always use Linkies, located here: http://www.blenza.com/linkies/

    I haven’t used it, but I believe you have to manually insert it into every post, and it does contain ads, but it’s something, at least.

    Sainty: You could just do this:

    In wp-comments-post.php

    After this line:

    $comment_content = trim($_POST['comment']);

    Add this:

    if (trim($comment_content) == "") {
    $comment_content = "I was here!";
    }

    That way if they do not leave a comment, it leaves that text instead. Just one idea of course.

    Ah… thanks Aleister.
    Got it!

    i’ve another request… is there a plugin to prevent the viewer downloading the images (by either dragging or right click). simple solution without flash player would be great!

    I have a simple (I think) idea for a plugin:

    Have a dropdown menu on the write post page that could change the id of the body tag on the index page everytime you publish a post. What I’m thinking about is being able to change your front page layout (by swtiching out the body tag to reference a different CSS rule) depending on the content of each post (of course, the index page would only show 1 post at a time to accomodate this). Then one could use something like <?php variable_id (); ?> as the id on their index.php body tag. Sound interesting? This would support being able to change ones layout depending on the importance of the post.

    I would love to see a plugin that would show the EXIF data of a picture in a bubble as the mouse hovers over it !

    parameters:

    See this link: http://www.hypergurl.com/norightclick.html

    But for the record, it is impossible to protect images 100% – someone could always just take a screenshot and crop it if they wanted to 🙂

    ryanfitzer: You could just enter a div declaration in your post:

    <div class="posttype1">post goes here</div>

    Then define the classes in your CSS.

    digitalfrog: That is an interesting idea. There are several ways it could be accomplished – the best perhaps would be the use of the ‘title’ tag – to bring up the standard popup text (it is a lot more cross-browser compatible then trying to use pure CSS or javascript popups). If I get a chance again I will look into it 🙂

    Until next time, please no more “plugin” requests right now everyone 😉

    Good point but I would not like the user to have to write any code. This also wouldn’t help if I had a rule for something like this:

    body#bigpost #sidebar {
    display:none;
    }

    This would enable a user to hide blocks of content whenever they needed. Now I understand that it could be possible to keep a layout fluid enough to accomodate knocking blocks down when the preceding block is a certain size but this gives much more control to the non-technical author. Thanks anyway.

    thanks Aleister!!!!!

    I’d love a plug in that automatically removes the “Post” feature and writes Pages Instead (but still allows people to comment on the page).

    Cool. Let me know if you get to it one day, I’ll be more than happy to alpha/beta test it 🙂
