Plugins I've completed a new version of the GUS plugin. The main change is the ability to install and use this plugin with register_globals off. This will allow you to use it with the upcoming Geeklog 1.4 if you choose to turn off register_globals.

You may get more information or dowload it through my geeklog software page.

v1.6.0 [29 Jan 2006]

  • [fix] save on an SQL query if there is no referrer
  • [fix] eliminate some warnings and a few minor buglets
  • [new] now installs and works with register_globals off
  • [new] changed the browser stats to make them more useful by breaking it down by browser and then version
  • [new] optionally show bots by name [Google, Yahoo!, Ask Jeeves, Inktomi, and MSN Bot] in the Who's Online block instead of showing them as Guests [based on code by ByteEnabled]
    • controlled by the new $_GUS_CONF['wo_show_bots'] option in config.php

Rating plugin 1.0b

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.

Cheers, Euan.

Flickr plugin

The Flickr plugin displays thumbnails of Flickr photos on your site and links the thumbnails to their photo pages.

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.
