WP-SNAP! 0.9

Author: Nathan Olsen
WP-SNAP! (WordPress System for Navigating Alphabetized Posts) creates an alphabetical listing of post titles on a Category or Page template file. Navigation through the listings WP-SNAP! generates is accomplished using the alphabet itself. (For example, if a site visitor clicked on the letter D, any post titles that began with that letter would be showcased.) WP-SNAP! will work on any WordPress 2.5 or higher site, but is particularly useful managing glossaries, indexes, reviews, or directories
Installation:

Download the WP-SNAP! WordPress Plugin, extract it and upload it to your WordPress Plugins folder on your site.
Activate the Plugin from the WordPress Administration Plugins tab.
Edit the category templates your Theme uses, such as category.php, and add the following code above the start of the WordPress Loop:

Copy the CSS example below and paste it into your WordPress Theme stylesheet (you can style it better later).
Upload the files and refresh the category page on your WordPress blog to see it in action.
For further customization, go to WordPress Admin > Plugins > WP-SNAP! settings. The available settings allow you to make site-wide changes to things like the alphabet, the navigational structure, permalink structure. You may also change the categories to be displayed and the menu navigational structure by passing variables as a query-string to the plugin like so:

There are currently four possible arguments: Category (‘cat’), Include Category Children (‘child’), Navigational Menu Style (‘menu’), and First Load (‘firstload’). Category must equal a category number from your WordPress installation, Include Category Children must equal true or false as to whether to include child categories (the default value is false), Navigational Menu Style must equal a number between 1 and 3 (corresponding with the three navigational styles offered in the admin options panel), and First Load must equal ALL, NONE or RECENT and will affect how WP-SNAP! displays posts/tags when it is first called on a template. Note that if RECENT is selected, the number of recent posts/tags to display can be controlled from the admin options page. For instance, to create a navigational menu for all posts in category 15, including child categories, using the default menu navigational style, and displaying recent posts on first load, WP-SNAP! would be called like this:

To create a navigational menu for the current category, excluding children and using navigational menu style 3, WP-SNAP! would be called like this:

To create a navigational menu for all categories, using default navigational menu style, WP-SNAP! would be called like this:

Test it out and enjoy!

Note: For the Plugin to work, you must have access to edit your WordPress Theme files. You must also have a category.php template file in your WordPress Theme. If you do not, you can create one following the instructions on the WordPress Codex for creating a category template file.

faq:
When will the next version of your plugin be released?

As soon as I find the time, I will update the plugin and release a new version. I understand how frustrating it can be to be so close to having the perfect WordPress installation only to be held up by a plugin that just needs a little more work to be exactly what’s needed. However, please remember that I am not paid write this plugin and that, like you, I have a family and responsibilities that extend far beyond this little piece of code. I really appreciate your enthusiasm, but if you wish to reap the benefits of my freely given labor, then you must be satisfied with doing so on my timetable. Otherwise, if you simply cannot wait, you are more than welcome to modify and extend the capabilities of my plugin yourself.

Why do the results WP-SNAP! returns look funky? Why is it numbering every item?

A web page is composed of two parts: a document containing HTML code and a document containing styling code (known as a Cascading Style Sheet, or CSS for short). Because WordPress templates can look so drastically different from one another, I have intentionally avoided injecting any CSS information into WP-SNAP! However, I have included several ID selectors (that can even be modified from within wp-admin) that should allow you to style WP-SNAP! to look however you’d like. Those numbered lists? You can turn them off. I do ask that you try to refrain from asking me CSS related questions — while I would love to help you, my time is limited. If you would like to learn more about CSS, I suggest visiting A List Apart or Vitamin.

I tried using your plugin, but it just won’t work. What am I doing wrong?

Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to troubleshoot every installation of this plugin. However, if you believe you have discovered a bug, I encourage you to post a comment to my website and I will reply as soon as I can. I do request that you be as specific as possible when asking for assistance. Please provide a detailed account of the steps you took that resulted in the error you encountered so that I can try to reproduce it and more quickly deduce how to fix it.

Link Library 4.1.6

Author: Yannick Lefebvre
This plugin is used to be able to create a page on your web site that will contain a list of all of the link categories that you have defined inside of the Links section of the WordPress administration, along with all links defined in these categories. The user can select a sub-set of categories to be displayed or not displayed. Link Library also offers a mode where only one category is shown at a time, using AJAX or HTML Get queries to load other categories based on user input. It can display a search box and find results based on queries. It can also display a form to accept user submissions and allow the site administrator to moderate them before listing the new entries. Finally, it can generate an RSS feed for your link collection so that people can be aware of additions to your link library
Installation:

Download the plugin
Upload link-library.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin in the WordPress Admin

To get a basic Link Library list showing on one of your WordPress pages:
1. In the WordPress Admin, create a new page and type the following text, where # should be replaced by the Settings Set number:
[link-library settings=#]

To add a list of categories to jump to a certain point in the list, add the following text to your page:
[link-library-cats settings=#]
To add a search box to your Link Library list, add the following text to your page:
[link-library-search]
To add a form for users to be able to submit new links:
[link-library-addlink settings=#]

In addition to specifying a setting set, categories to be displayed can be specified using addition keywords. Read the FAQ for more information on this topic.

Further configuration is available under the Link Library Settings panel.

faq:
Where do I find my category IDs to place in the “Categories to be Displayed” and “Categories to be Excluded” fields?

The category IDs are numeric IDs. You can find them by going to the page to see and edit link categories, then placing your mouse over a category and seeing its numeric ID in the link that is associated with that name.

How can I display different categories on different pages?

If you want all of your link pages to have the same layout, create a single setting set, then specify the category to be displayed when you add the short code to each page. For example: [link-library categorylistoverride=”28″]
If the different pages have different styles for different categories, then you should create distinct setting sets for each page and set the categories to be displayed in the “Categories to be Displayed” field in the admin panel.

How can I override some of the options when using shortcodes in my pages

To override the settings specified inside of the plugin settings page, the two commands can be called with options. Here is the syntax to call these options:

[link-library-cats categorylistoverride=”28″]

Overrides the list of categories to be displayed in the category list

[link-library-cats excludecategoryoverride=”28″]

Overrides the list of categories to be excluded in the category list

[link-library categorylistoverride=”28″]

Overrides the list of categories to be displayed in the link list

[link-library excludecategoryoverride=”28″]

Overrides the list of categories to be excluded in the link list

[link-library notesoverride=0]

Set to 0 or 1 to display or not display link notes

[link-library descoverride=0]

Set to 0 or 1 to display or not display link descriptions

[link-library rssoverride=0]

Set to 0 or 1 to display or not display rss information

[link-library tableoverride=0]

Set to 0 or 1 to display links in an unordered list or a table.

Can Link Library be used as before by calling PHP functions?

For legacy users of Link Library (pre-1.0), it is still possible to call the back-end functions of the plugin from PHP code to display the contents of your library directly from a page template.

The main differences are that the function names have been changed to reflect the plugin name. However, the parameters are compatible with the previous function, with a few additions having been made. Also, it is important to note that the function does not output the Link Library content by themselves as they did. You now need to print the return value of these functions, which can be simply done with the echo command. Finally, it is possible to call these PHP functions with a single argument (‘AdminSettings1’, ‘AdminSettings2’, ‘AdminSettings3’, ‘AdminSettings4’ or ‘AdminSettings5’) so that the settings defined in the Admin section are used.

Here would be the installation procedure:

Download the plugin
Upload link-library.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin in the WordPress Admin
Use the following functions in a new template and select this template for your page that should display your Link Library.

<?php echo LinkLibraryCategories(‘name’, 1, 100, 3, 1, 0, ”, ”, ”, false, ”, ”); ?>
<br />
<?php echo LinkLibrary(‘name’, 1, 1, 1, 1, 0, 0, ”, 0, 0, 1, 1, ‘<td>’, ‘</td>’, 1, ”, ‘<tr>’, ‘</tr>’, ‘<td>’, ‘</td>’, 1, ‘<td>’, ‘</td>’, 1, “Application”, “Description”, “Similar to”, 1, ”, ”, ”, false, ‘linklistcatname’, false, 0, null, null, null, false, false, false, false, ”, ”); ?>

Custom Word Cloud 0.2

Author: Bryan Nielsen
The custom word cloud plugin will generate word cloud images based on page
content or the contents of a form POST input named “content”. The cloud is
specified using shortcode tags on the page where the content or form exist
Installation:
Unzip the custom-word-plugin.zip file and copy the resulting custom-word-cloud directory to your
WordPress plugins directory.

Make sure the web server can write to the custom-word-cloud/cache/ directory.

And upload any TTF font files you want to use into the custom-word-cloud/fonts/ directory.

Activate the plugin and create a page with the appropriate shortcode tags.

Enjoy. 😉

faq:
Why are some of the letters in some words are covering up other words and letters?

There is a long running bug in the PHP imagettfbbox() function that calculates
the coordinates of the box around a string drawn with a TTF font where the
letters that drop below the baseline, like the lower case letter p, fall
outside the bounding box. This has been fixed in recent versions of PHP but
for older versions you can create a larger word margin in the attributes to as
a temporary fix.

Mini Mail Dashboard Widget 1.4.3

Author: Marcel Bokhorst
Send and receive e-mail messages on the administration panel and optionally receive SMS messages containing the sender, subject and (part of) the text when new messages arrive
Installation:
Using the WordPress dashboard

Login to your weblog
Go to Plugins
Select Add New
Search for Mini Mail Dashboard Widget
Select Install
Select Install Now
Select Activate Plugin

Manual

Download and unzip the plugin
Upload the entire mini-mail-dashboard-widget/ directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress

faq:
Why did you write this plugin?

See here.

Is this plugin multi-user?

Yes.

Who can access the tools menu?

Users with publish_posts capability (authors).

Who can access the general settings?

Users with manage_options capability (administrators).

How can I change the styling?

Copy wp-mini-mail.css to your upload directory to prevent it from being overwritten by an update
Change the style sheet to your wishes; the style sheet contains documentation

Why does this plugin require at least PHP version 5.2.4?

Because this is a requirement of the Zend Framework.

Are you affiliated to VoipBuster?

No.

Can you give me an example of an SMS schedule?

To receive SMS notifications from 9am to 5pm on working days you could use the following schedule:

+9:00
-17:00
-Sat
-Sun

What do ‘Connection refused’ and ‘Connection timed out’ mean?

Probably that your hosting provider has blocked POP3, IMAP and/or SMTP.
Try switching from IMAP to POP3 and/or from SMTP to PHP mail and/or from SSL/TLS to unencrypted.
Use the port test function to get an idea which ports are open or closed.

Why do I get error 500?

See previous question.
Maybe the maximum PHP execution time is exceeded.
You could use for example the WP System Health plugin to check this limit.

Why are not all new e-mail messages marked as unread?

Because e-mail messages for which SMS notifications are sent are considered as read.

Where can I ask questions, report bugs and request features?

You can write comments on the support page.
