  • Weeee, didn’t look at the plugin, but the header flashing cells are fun 🙂

    I have installed it. Look’s nice.
    Only problem i have is that it not works fine with my template.
    But i’m a newbie about wordpress, so i have to figure out first how to install the template human……( forget the name)

    Here’s my ‘wall’ http://blog.macmouse.nl/wall.php

    Sorry, totally forgot the layout stuff… You can style the items in your stylesheet with these identifiers and containers…

    #rumwallform input.styled, #rumwallform textarea {


    #rumwallform table {


    #rumwallbtn {


    #rumwallform textarea {


    #rumwall div.wallcontent {


    #rumwall div.wallheader {


    #rumwall div.wallheader a {


    Hope that helps macmouse…

    Not yet, first i have to figure out how it works with the stylesheets, then i can i try it.
    But for now i love, so you thank you verry much for this plug-in, and also for the gallery, that works fine already…

    Tested it in a test on my testblog on a testversion of wp 1.5 :), and it’s working very nice! I have to adjust the layout to fit my weblog, but it’s very easy to use the wall.php as an include in my index.php file. I really like it. I’m just waiting for a few minor changes in the rumGallery plugin and a number of images I still have to collect and modify to fit into the rumGallery before I put them up on my official weblog.

    My compliments and thanks for the work you’re doing here Dan.

    Hey all. I don’t really understand much about WordPress, but I belive that I did everything right, but this plugin wont work.

    When acessing http://www.bits.webhs.org/bitaites/wall.php, I get this error: Parse error: parse error, unexpected ‘.’, expecting ‘)’ in /home/bits/public_html/bitaites/wall.php on line 24

    What can be wrong? Also, I have Activated the plugin, but I can’t see where to configure it.

    Thanks a lot.

    Are you using (the officialy not yet released) version 1.5? Because otherwise it won’t work. Also not forget to put the other files in the wright directories.

    Dan: Is this plugin vulnerable to spam, just like with commentspam?

    uhm a parse error… doesnt sound good… could you make a copy of the wall.php into a file called wall.phps, so i can se what might have been wrong in your case?

    And you will need to use version 1.5+ (a nightly build) of wordpress to make use of the plugin…

    Moxie (Hi jack, hehe):
    I have implemented some of the spam functions as are “builtin” into wordpress… I have applied filters so spam filters subscribing to these events will trigger and handle the tag-wall too… Im using spam-karma myself on my blog, but it is built-up in such a way that it couldnt be used unless i used the comment database table for storing the tags, and for now, Im not…

    Maybe I should contact the author of spam-karma and make some of the functionality content based and not so “comment-based”… 🙂


    First of all it’s a great little plugin. Was easy to install but got one problem when I implement it to my current design and one smaller challenge.

    1. When i click on “drop tag!” and write in a message then everything work just fine. But when i click “taq it” i get this error message (the message do appear on the site though):
    Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /hsphere/local/home/samdesign/sean.journeypix.com/wall.php:7) in /hsphere/local/home/samdesign/sean.journeypix.com/wall.php on line 37

    Guess it got something to do with my get_header or something but can’t find out how to solve the problem.

    2. When people write in a URL in “Website” they have to add http:// first, if not the URL won’t work properly from the message. Most people will forget to write that first, is it possible to add to the script that http:// is added if the visitor doesn’t add it?

    URL to my guestbook is:

    URL to the code of my guestbook is:

    All help is appreciated. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Sean,

    $offset = (int) $_GET['offset'];
    $wall = new RumWall($offset);
    if (isset($_POST['sub']))
    $author = trim(strip_tags($_POST['author']));
    $email = trim(strip_tags($_POST['email']));
    $url = trim(strip_tags($_POST['url']));
    $content = trim(strip_tags($_POST['content']));
    if (strlen($author) > 0 && strlen($content) > 0)
    if ($wall->SaveTag($author, $email, $url, $content))
    header("location: wall.php");

    Take this and paste right after:

    <?php /* Don't remove this line. */ require('./wp-blog-header.php'); ?>

    Then it will work…

    2. When people write in a URL in “Website” they have to add http:// first, if not the URL won’t work properly from the message. Most people will forget to write that first, is it possible to add to the script that http:// is added if the visitor doesn’t add it?

    Yeah Ill note that for next release 🙂

    Thanks a million Dan … both for your plugin and quick reply which made it work :-).

    Anytime tavarish…

    I regognize your name and mail from some comments spam-karma have set to moderation on my blog… So I guessed you tried to post there as well 🙂

    Hi there, could a wonderful person post a copy of the plugin source? It seems the download link at rummanddan.dk is returning a 404.

    I uploaded it on my site so you can get it from there for now:

    Will remove it as soon as I see that rummanddan.dk’s download link is up and working again.
