Plugin: wp-silktide (7 posts)

    wp-silktide is a plugin that simplifies putting the code for your silktide sitescore on your site.

    If you dont know what Im referring to, check out this link:

    The plugin works fine for WordPress installs that are NOT installed in a subdirectory.

    What I am really needing is for it to be tested on sites where WP is installed in a subdirectory.

    One important note about this: silktide likes established sites, with both content and linkbacks. New sites may not even warrant a score high enough to generate an image.

    I've tested this on my own subdirectory install and had this problem so testers with established sites are obviously preferred.

    Link to the plugin is here: http://www.village-idiot.org/archives/2006/11/12/wp-silktide/

    Lastly, my entire domain is running painfully slow (atleast for me). Apologies in advance if you experience similar speed issues.

    I tested it on my site which resides in /blog, and it worked fine. Got a score right away (for what ever it's worth - says I have zero incoming links, don't quite believe that) . Anyway, cool plugin.

    Just a heads up that I got some feedback from a person working on the sitescore team @ silktide and they currently only assign images to sites that score > 7.5

    Works for me - thanks, and my site is in a subdirectory.

    Picks up the siteurl correctly, so it shows the score[1] I got when I entered it manually on their site. Adding "www" gets a different score, as does omitting the path after the domain name (even though my site does a redirect)

    [1] 8.3 if anyone's interested

    It seems like it took forever but silktide has finally released their new look. Ive updated wp-silktide accordingly to handle the new 80x15 image (standard sized badge) they offer, and provide the new link back to their site.

    permalink is unchanged:
