WordPress Plugin Credits
WordPress Blogging software. I have a number of plugins I’ve used to do the functionality here. I am not a coder by trade, so if the functionality here sucks, don’t blame these plugins! I wouldn’t have much of anything without them, so I do appreciate it. Here’s what I’m using:This site was made with the open source
Semiologic CMS: Denis de Bernardy has created a terrific plugin that allows WordPress to work like a Content Management System. Check out the Semiologic Plugin if interested. He has all sorts of add-on plugins for this that allow you to customize it many ways. Also, I believe he even has a more powerful version of this that you can buy.
Structured Blogging: There is a group of dedicated folk working on structured blogging formats. This allows for many different kinds of “microcontent” to be structured in such a way that its templated for easier posting, and more sharable. I use the hReview format for my movie reviews. I believe the folks at Broadband Mechanics actually made the wordpress plugin.
List Posts in Category: Chris McCafferty created a plugin called PostsInCategory that allows me develop my navigational pages without using a “php-exec” type plugin. I use this to make my navigation pages such as my cyberpunk movies by decade page. I hear there are better ways of doing this, but again, not being a coder, I pretty much tweak and noodle till things start working.
Akismet: With my recent upgrade to Wordpress 2.01, I’ve started using Akismet to stop spam comments. Hopefully this will work.
