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.

    zane: can someone please tell me what is the benefit of this pluging for affiliate marketer?

    No clue, actually. It just creates links to Technorati.

    also after I install the pluging what if i dont want to show up thecnorati tag in a specific page or post can I disable the pluging for a specific page or post?

    Currently there’s no way to do that. I might be able to add that capability though. Would it be sufficient to suppress the links in specific categories?

    “Technorati tags: Holiday, Quebec” I have done it manually, I heard that technorati selects tags automatically.

    Thanks for your help

      I heard that technorati selects tags automatically

      Technorati selects tags based on the ‘rel’ tag meta data. My plug-in creates links TO technorati to help your visitors find similar posts.

    Hi Dave,

    Sorry! Looks like I figured it out, am just using a really old version of WP (too lazy to update) and couldn’t find the options specifically for the plugin.

    All sorted now! Thanks.

  5. crockstar

    Hi,

    First, thank you very much for the plugin! It’s great.

    I was just wondering, however, what I can do to make sure these links are no-followed. I haven’t been able to figure that bit out and though it may seem daft it would be really helpful if I could turn these “followed” links to “no-follow”.

    Thanks in advance!

  6. oswaldo

    I have installed your plugin on my blog but unfortunately it does not work.

    NOTE: I am using wordpress versio 2.8.4 is it possible to run your plugin on this version? If not please can you find a way to help me.

    Thanks

    1. david

      I have installed your plugin on my blog but unfortunately it does not work.

      Could you be more specific about ‘does not work’? What about it does not work? No tags at all?

      I just checked out your blog and the plug-in seems to be working fine.

      Technorati tags: Holiday, Quebec

      Thanks!

  7. 8pet

    That was great plugin,I like it!

  8. Stephen

    Thank you – I’ve just downloaded and installed the plugin and updated some of my old posts. I’m really to keen to see the effect on my blog traffic over time!

  9. david

    Caleb: The point is not to help Technorati find your posts … the point is to help your visitors find similarly tagged posts on Technorati.

  10. Caleb

    I too am having difficulty understanding the need for this plugin:

    Tech crawls my post from a ping,then finds your plugin’s tag links which then allows the reader to read another post on another site located in Technorati…where’s the benefit for my site in this?

    I mean Tech is going to find my regular tags anyway, so what’s the point…please clarify :?:

  11. Bob

    Thanks. Will try it.

  12. david

    Bob: All I can suggest is that you edit the theme and remove references to “the_tags” in the php code.

  13. Bob

    Hi David – great work!
    One small problem is that I now have two sets of tags below my post. Check out at the bottom http://cli.gs/a31Ddp there are “technorati tags” and then there is a duplicate set of just regular “tags.”
    I’m running WP 2.7. Any thoughts?
    Thanks – Bob

  14. Intelliginix

    Hi, I am new to blogging. Could someone please explain to me what are Technorati tags, and what’s their purpose?

  15. david

    I disabled the footer option in admin section and add in the place where I wanted. Nevertheless nothing happens

    Can you email me the PHP source of the theme page that you put the ‘tags2tech_get_tags_links()’ call?

  16. Fialho

    Hi,

    I’ve installed your plug in and it works, but it places the links in a place where I don’t want to. So I disabled the footer option in admin section and add in the place where I wanted. Nevertheless nothing happens…..can you please help me out ?

  17. Alberto Rodriguez

    Dude,

    The plugins works like a charm!

    Thanks.

    AR

  18. Frank Richard

    Thanks for the mod, really thankful!

  19. david

    Alberto: Check out version 1.01 … should do what you are looking for.

  20. david

    Alberto: I’ll see what I can do. Shouldn’t be hard. Check back later this week.

  21. Alberto Rodriguez

    Hi David,

    First of all, what a great plugin. Simple, neat but effective. The way things should be.

    Second, I’d like to know what do I have to do in my theme to place the Tech-tags ONLY in the “simple post page”. I just want to show the tags in the post page, not the main (index) page.

    Regards,

    AR

  22. Robert@PNG

    Hi David,

    Onya mate!
    Thanks for the mod.
    Will give it a test soon.

    Cheers,

    R

  23. david

    Robert: Download version 1.0 … I’ve implemented the requested functionality.

  24. degra

    Great plugin! It works very well in WP 2.6.1 and I like the customizable text: I put the URL to an image into the box, and the image (Technorati small logo) is there, before the tags!

  25. Robert@PNG

    Thanks for responding to my comment,

    Will hear from you shortly,

    R

  26. david

    is there anyway of excluding the generated Technorati tags from my blogs RSS feed?

    yeah, that should be possible.

    Give me a few days to work on it though … kind of busy with other stuff at the moment.

  27. Robert@PNG

    Thanks for the plugin. I do have one question – is there anyway of excluding the generated Technorati tags from my blogs RSS feed? Ideally I want to display the Technorati tags on a single post but exclude these tags from my RSS feed.
    Is this possible?

  28. david

    I was wondering how I could add the rel=

  29. JM

    I was wondering how I could add the rel=”nofollow” to each tag. Could you explain where I could place this so when it generates a tag it automatically nofollows the tags.

  30. moserw

    Works like a charm. Simple to use and setup too is easy. Thanks for sharing and making it so easy. Swell idea.

  31. Joe Perez

    Just wanted to say thanks for the cool plug-in

  32. Rolf Erikson

    That

  33. david

    Rolf:

    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.

  34. 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

  35. david

    Rolf:

    Looks like it’s working OK to me.

    You specified ‘framg

  36. Rolf Erikson

    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=

  37. Greg

    Gotcha. Makes sense. Thanks for the response!

  38. david

    I

  39. Greg

    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?

  40. 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!!

  41. 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

  42. 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!

  43. 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

    Chris:

    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.

    david

  44. 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!

  45. 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?

    david

  46. 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?

  47. 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?

  48. Mara Mei

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

  49. 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?

  50. 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 :)
