You may get more information or dowload it through my geeklog software page.
v1.6.0 [29 Jan 2006]
The Rating plugin 1.0b (beta) release is on my site and in the downloads section on this site. If you have any problems, post them in the forums here or on my site. Please also post any feedback/suggestions.
This plugin allows you to add a rating system to any item. You can add them with autotags, or with a slight modification to the core files. Full details will be posted on my site soon.
I would also like to ask Dirk and the guys: please would you think of some way that a plugin can contribute code to stories and other items, so that it is not necessary to modify core files to add a rating.
All the plugin does is to implement a [flickr:] autotag. You simply add the photo's id and it does all the rest. What is a photo id? When you view a photo on Flickr, the URL looks something like this:
So here "71877803" is the photo's id. Now you simply add that id in the [flickr:] autotag after the colon:
When the story is displayed, it will show the photo's thumbnail instead of the autotag. Clicking on the thumbnail will take you to the photo page on Flickr (the above URL, in this example).
The plugin will get the photo's title from Flickr and display it as a title attribute when you hover your mouse over the thumbnail. If you'd rather provide your own title, simply enter it after the id:
[flickr:71877803 How to make a penguin fly]
And that's pretty much everything the plugin currently does.
It's a bit skimpy on features and documentation at the moment, but my testers seem happy with it up til now! [Thanks Ajay, Wayne, and John!] I'm releasing it because people have been waiting for a long time and I wanted to give them something useful to play with.
This version installs a random photo block by default and allows you the option of having the G2 control block as a geeklog block or left alone as part of the G2 page.
You can get it through my geeklog software page.
Media Gallery is a native plugin for Geeklog that provides a full featured media gallery, including photos and movies. If you have any issues with this plugin, please post your comments, feedback, bug reports, etc. in the Plugin Support Forum.
Media Gallery attempts to take advantage of many of the features made available through Geeklog. The feature list includes:
If Media Gallery does not suit your needs, I recommend you look at the Inmemoriam Media Gallery also available for download in the Geeklog Download Section. Each plugin has it's own set of unique features and functions. Now there are simply more options for an true native plugin.
I've released a new version of GUS. I highly recommend that everyone upgrade to this version because it contains a security fix. Before you start freaking out, the problem does not allow any kind of compromise of the system - it only allows non-authorised users to view some of the GUS pages.
In this release:
v1.5.0 [13 Oct 2005]
It is available through my geeklog software page.

I have just released a test candidate of the GL Native Forum plugin version 2.5. This is the same code that I have been running on my site www.portalparts.com for the past 6 months or so. It's a completely re-vamped look and feel using CSS based buttons instead of images for a cleaner look but also should be a lot easlier to theme for different color schemes.
This is a release for testing so don't use it on a live site unless you are comfortable and able to restore or back out the changes. I've used it for months on my site but there can stll be many conditions that I have still not received enough testing. I will release another version once it has completed sufficient testing. Please post your feedback on my site or here in the plugins support forum.
Besides the change in the look, this version was a major rewrite of the core plugin and added many new features. For a summary of the new features - read on:
For those of you unfamilar with GUS, it collects statistics on who visits your site, which browser and operating system they are using, which pages they view, and which links they are clicking to get there.
This information is useful for monitoring your site for abuse [which you can take care directly if you have the ban plugin installed] and to see how frequently different parts of your site are being used.
Here are the [slightly] shortened release notes for version 1.4:
The beta release of the Inmemoriam Media Gallery for Geeklog 1.3.11 is now available for public use. I'm calling this a beta release simply because it may not be 100% free of defects. Find it in the Geeklog download section or at SummitPages.ca.
I'm sure you've realized by now what Inmemoriam is--a media gallery plug-in designed specifically to run inside of Geeklog making use of Geeklog's user database as well as many of its core functions. Inmemoriam Media Gallery for Geeklog was inspired by a combination of factors not the least of which are both Geeklog's need for an integrated gallery solution designed with Geeklog in mind, and my personal preference for something other than the current mainstream options. My name is Alford, and I hope you enjoy using Inmemoriam as much as I've enjoyed developing it. Does that ever sound like a commercial :P
Some features include: media stored outside of the webroot, watermarking, my favorites album, backup utility, permissions system based on Geeklog's own, etc. A full list of features and special features can be found in the usage doc included in the package. For screenshots of the gallery visit SummitPages.ca.
The GD graphics library is required for this beta release. Future releases will (hopefully) support NetPBM and ImageMagick. Read the install instructions carefully. If you have installation issues, bug reports, or any other relevant issues or comments, please post them in Geeklog's plugin help forum.
If you need help in setting up or using Geeklog, please see the documentation, the FAQ, the Wiki, try our search page or browse through the Support Forum. Chances are someone else already had the same problem.
More resources are listed on the support page.
