Thought I’d see out the year by releasing my first WordPress plugin. The Technotags plugin allows you to specify Technorati, Flickr, and tags as well as geo tag your post using Google Maps. Tags are stored as custom fields in your WordPress database. I implemented tags in this way as I believe that your posts’ metadata, the tags themselves, should be stored separately from the post itself to future-proof your tags rather than lock them into post content.

Get the plugin here. Let me know how you get on and please be gentle as this is not only my first WordPress plugin but also one of my first attempts at PHP scripting.

One thought on “Technotags WordPress plugin”
  1. Hello!

    I installed WordPress on my server, and set up a site. It’s a relly nice piece of software. However, I am missing a piece of functionality, and

    couldn’t find a suitable answer for it. Mayou you know a plugin I could use?I need to automatically inserts ads in my posts.And not AdSense ads, but rather HTML snippets defined by me (affiliate links, etc). Let’s say I would insert a tag in my post:
    — ad here —
    and the plugin would automatically replace it with some HTML code, when the post is displayed on my site.I really don’t need any fancy configuration options etc, just the basic replace functionality.
    Do you know a plugin that can handle this?
