Second Release: Add Related Posts to Your Feed

16 Feb 2007
February 16, 2007

Last weekend I released my first plugin and received some good feedback. Most of that feedback was along the lines of, “Hey dummy, we use a different Related Posts plugin, not UTW!”

Ok, I can take a hint. ;-)

So, version .02 is released with support for the w-a-s-a-b-i Related Posts plugin. That site is down this evening and I didn’t have the plugin. I found version 2.04 and used that for development. Hopefully it is current? [Updated: seems current, found it here]

My plugin will now add the output from w-a-s-a-b-i related posts to your feed . If that’s not present, it will use UTW. If that’s not present, it’ll do a whole lot of nothing and send you silly emails asking why you’ve activated it (ok, not really, but someday it might).

Note: It uses the same wasabi Related Posts options that you’ve configured for display on your blog. And I’ve made a horrid assumption that you’re putting the posts in an unordered list. Most people seem to… if you’re not and the feed looks funny, leave a comment about how you display ‘em and we’ll see if I can’t help you hack up the plugin a bit.

If the UTW version was fine for you, then you need not use this version. Nothing changed for UTW users.

You can download it from my downloads page.

    Hey dummy, now you got a fantastic release …
    ok just kidding, you’re definitely not a dummy, because I prefer you’re plugin over hacking my feeds files!

    Thanks for the release Solo.

    Hey this is cool but it isn’t doing anything to my feed, and I’m using the w-a-s-a-b-i module. I modified the code to test it out but it doesn’t look like it’s even being executed. I moved a return statement to the top of the main routine to output some code but nothing.

    hi
    what about Simple Tagging plugin; in my experience it has some very nice features and is basically more independent then jeromes keywords or UTW?

    or at least suggestion on what to do to implement it myself?

    Hi mrak, that one is probably next up. Have had a couple emails asking about it too.

    Might be a week or so, as I find some time. :-)

    It’s a great plugin, for sure. I was directed here by Andy Beard, and I wonder, do you have a similar plugin for the ‘similar posts‘ plugin?

    All the best,

    David

    Hi David, I don’t currently have a flavor that works with “similar posts”. If I get some free time, I’ll give it a look though.

    Very usefull :) but i am using Simple Tagging :/

    Hey Max – I do hope to tackle a version of this for Simple Tagging someday. Just need to find the time to tackle it!

    To be honest, right now I’m hanging loose to see what the WP 2.3 with built-in tagging will add to the scene.

    I’m using Wassabi related posts, have downloaded the plugin, activated it, and nothing is working. It seems like when I downloaded it from the page it still said version .1. Am I missing something here?

  22. Chris says:

    Brett – the newest version of wasabi that I’m aware of is at http://wasabi.pbwiki.com/Related%20Entries

    However… I have no clue if it works with modern versions of WordPress (I’m inclined to doubt it but haven’t tried).

    Oh wait – see this post (and comments) — things definitely didn’t work out.
