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:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/dhaun/71877803/

So here "71877803" is the photo's id. Now you simply add that id in the [flickr:] autotag after the colon:

[flickr:71877803]

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.

GL_Gallery2 Plugin 0.4.0

Plugins Since we don't seem to have enough options for photo gallery plugins, I've packaged up a working version of the Geeklog-Gallery2 integration plugin.

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.
