This is one of several plugin ideas I'll be posting tonight that have been rattling around my think tank for some time. I'm busy with other projects right now, but I wanted to throw some of these ideas out for the community to discuss. If anyone wants to take up development for any of these, we'll be happy to provide server space and project management for free.

1. YouTube Plugin
A super-simple plugin that would do one thing: create a youtube autotag. Users would simply enter [youtube:cdifdm2c0G0] for example (with cdifdm2c0G0 being the video code from YouTube) and the video would be neatly embedded. Short but sweet.

PHP Formatted Code

/**
* Implements the [youtube:] autotag.
*
*/

function plugin_autotags_youtube ($op, $content = '', $autotag = '')
{
    global $_CONF, $_TABLES;

    if ($op == 'tagname' ) {
        return 'youtube';
    } else if ($op == 'parse') {
        $whichtube = COM_applyFilter ($autotag['parm1']);
       
       $retval = '<object width="425" height="350"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/' . $whichtube . '"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/' . $whichtube . '" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="425" height="350"></embed></object>';

       $content = str_replace ($autotag['tagstr'], $retval, $content);

        return $content;
    }
}

Actually, that already is a plugin. Put that function in a file plugins/youtube/functions.inc, create a "youtube" entry in the gl_plugins table and you have a youtube plugin ...

Unfortunately not. It's still okay for the most part, though. The exception being the install script, which doesn't work with register_globals=off. Use the install script from one of the plugins that ship with Geeklog. They're pretty generic.

Here is a plugin I just made, it should work with the latest version of GL and the beta version.

No guarantees good luck.

I took all the code from the static pages plugin from the beta version of geeklog and adapted it to work with youtube. Do whatever you want with my part of this code, follow geeklogs rules for anything I used from the staticpage plugin.

[edit: no one reported any issues so I uploaded it to geeklog.net and changed the link here to reflect that]

Personally, I've just added a plugin to my system call 'custom'. Then whenever I need access to the PLG_* functions, I just go into lib-custom and add a plugin_whatever_custom function. Lot easier than making those microplugins. When 1.4 came out I had to make functions.inc file.

Could someone please explain, step by step, what to do do install this plugin? I downloaded your plugin but your "readme" file is a little too vague for application.

Thank you!

It installs just like any other Geeklog plugin. Easier, actually, since it doesn't have an admin section.

Start here: How to install Plugins - READ ME

I am not in front of anything I can install it on, but when I get back in the office later I will rewrite the read me with better instructions.

I was also informed that by not including some licensing info for the stuff I took from the static pages plugin that it causes some issue with the gpl license.

I don't care one bit how or who uses my code but the original authors do deserve the credit that I neglected to cut and copy along with the code. Will try to clear up both issues when I get back to the office.

Hello,

i've installed the plugin: i've copied the directories and then i've installed the plugin from my geeklog's control panel.

But, it doesn't work. I've tried to put it in a new and in a comment ([youtube: 47xBiNxlNhQ]).

Is there any thing else to do for this plugin work?

I've register_globals=on

Thank you,
ismael

Depending on the Geeklog version you're running, you may have to make sure not to have a space after the colon (that was a bug in, I think, 1.3.11 or thereabouts).

I've installed the plugin successfully, but now I don't know how to use it.

I'd like to make a story submission with youtube showing up on the story. What must I do to make this happen?

It's used like any other autotag - tag name, colon, id (of the movie, in this case) and all that in square brackets. There's even an example a few posts above ...

bye, Dirk
