WP Tags to Technorati

I’ve written my first useful WordPress plugin!

In WordPress 2.3, they introduced a new tagging feature … which I think is pretty nice … but I haven’t found a plug-in that lets you turn those tags into Technorati tags.

I’ve played around with a few dinky little plug-in’s in the past … but they were all for my own personal use. This time, however, I decided to try my hand at making a plug-in that could be used by more people.

So, I’m pleased to announce “WP Tags to Technorati”.

You can see the plug-in in action below.

You can download the plug-in from the WordPress plug-in repository.


If you like this plug-in, consider sending me a donation. Information on how to do so can be found here.

    It looks like you aren’t using WP’s tagging function … as my plug-in is not emitting any tags on the post (the space between the comments my plug-in generates is empty.

  4. Rolf Erikson

    OK, I understand noe how your plugin works.

    Zoudry blog writer has solved it by putting the tags after the text like this:

    <!– Tag links generated by Zoundry Blog Writer. Do not manually edit. http://www.zoundry.com –>
    Technorati : <a href=”http://technorati.com/tag/entrepren

    Looks like it’s working OK to me.

    Hi David,

    Regarding my comment on April 23rd, 2008 you asked for an example.
    What I mean is the different tags from your plugin,(example http://www.blognyheter.se/coaching/?p=385 ,and the tags at technorati, example http://technorati.com/posts/APpgLjc1E4vnvqPDg3gsPDhBhUyJ49YrUVrEB9nSCWY=

    Gotcha. Makes sense. Thanks for the response!

    Hey, I’m just curious why this plugin is necessary. If you use the built-in tagging functionality in WordPress and ping pingomatic on posting (which is the default behavior), Technorati picks up those tags. What am I missing?

  10. Chris

    Hi David. OK, apologies needed: somehow, although I wanted your plugin and thought that that was what I had downloaded- in fact what I got was technoratitagging! No wonder it was confusing for both of us. Now I have yours, do not have the other and everything is wonderful!!

  11. david

    Well, the file technoratitagging.php is not part of my plug-in, so I really don’t know what to tell you.

    The only file used by my plug-in would be wp-content/plugins/wp-tags-to-technorati/wp-tags-to-technorati.php

  12. Chris

    No, no other plugin. I think I must have copied the plug in to wp-admin in error and then copied to wp-content/plugins. I have deleted the folder that was in admin. The technorati tagging tab in settings now returns the error: Not Found
    The requested URL /wordpress/wp-admin/technoratitagging.php was not found on this server. I think I have made a bit of a mess of this!

  13. david

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: is_plugin_page() in /data/members/paid/l/a/larkrise.net/htdocs/www/wordpress/wp-admin/technoratitagging.php on line 65


    Do you have any other technorati tagging plug-in’s installed? That file isn’t one that is included in my plug-in.

    A real plug-in should be installed the wp-content/plugins directory, not the wp-admin directory.


  14. Chris

    My error is

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: is_plugin_page() in /data/members/paid/l/a/larkrise.net/htdocs/www/wordpress/wp-admin/technoratitagging.php on line 65

    I have no idea how to get an error log from the server- shows how little I know about anything!

  15. david

    Sorry for the long delay on this reply … work’s been a bit hectic.

    Reese: Can you email me your single.php file?

    Rolf: Can you point me to an example?

    Chris: Can you tell me more about the error you are getting? Perhaps the error log entry from your web server?


  16. Chris

    Hi! I have installed the plug in to WordPress 2.51 but am getting a fatal error when I click the Technorati Tags tab in Settings. Any words of wisdom as to what I might have done wrong?

  17. Rolf Erikson

    I have activated your plugin. It seems to work but when I look at Technorati they have only seen the category as a tag. Have I done someting wrong?

  18. Mara Mei

    I’ve been looking plugin for a long. Thank you.

  19. Reese

    I’m trying to add the tags to my single.php because that’s where my regular tags show, but I can’t figure it out as I know next to nothing about php. I unchecked the box in the option and copied tags2tech_get_tags_links() into the php under my regular tags, but I didn’t know what to put before or after it, I tried <? php tags2tech_get_tags_links() ;?&rgt; with and without the semicolon. Should it be something else?

  20. Molli

    Many thanks to you, David. This is a wonderful plugin and I truly appreciate all the work you put into creating it and the generosity in sharing it with all of us. You’re a gem! Thanks again 🙂

  21. Franca Richard

    Really useful plugin, thanks!

  22. Gilgemesh

    Bah, I got it figured.

    I might have tried looking first huh.

  23. Gilgemesh

    Love the plugin. It has made adding the Tags much more efficient than what I was researching. The only issue I have is I am getting the Technorati tags info twice in my posts. I want it to show up in only 1 place, after our internal site tags. Any ideas? I’m not real PHP proficient, but I can find my way around a bit. Here’s a sample post:


    Thanks for any help in advance.

  24. david

    I’ve installed the plugin and it’s working, but now I seem to have two sets of tags displaying.

    You’ll need to update your theme to not display the tags.

    The tag prefixed with “Technorati tags:” is the one supplied by the plug-in, the other set of tags is provided by the theme.

    I’ve installed the plugin and it’s working, but now I seem to have two sets of tags displaying. What do I need to do?


  26. homikus

    Thanks, man! Works great and and does a great work! 🙂

  27. WebGeek

    Great plugin! I was looking for something like this and found your plugin. Works like a charm!

  28. David Jacques-Louis

    What tags have you in the sidebar yourself? What is it called?

  29. doppjuice

    Perfect. Thank you!

  30. Monkeyskull

    Thanks for a great tool, David. You might want to edit your ReadMe doc to be very explicit about how to put the function call in a page template — I didn’t know you had to use ‘echo’ and kept trying all sorts of other things, and some people might not know to wrap the echo function call in php tags.

    Thanks again!!!

  31. david

    Is their a php function i can use to customize the placement in my template?

    Yes, use this:
    echo tags2tech_get_tags_links();
