WP Tags to Technorati

Important note:

I am no longer maintaining any of the WordPress plugin’s.

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.

    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!

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

    • Caleb on 27 Jan 2009 at 5:44 pm

    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 ❓

    Thanks. Will try it.

    • david on 15 Jan 2009 at 1:58 pm

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

    • Bob on 15 Jan 2009 at 1:55 pm

    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


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

    • david on 10 Oct 2008 at 1:52 pm

    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?

    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 ?


  2. Dude,

    The plugins works like a charm!

    Thanks.

  3. Thanks for the mod, really thankful!

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

    • david on 14 Sep 2008 at 10:52 am

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


  4. 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


  5. Hi David,

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

    Cheers,

    R

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

    • degra on 20 Aug 2008 at 5:15 pm

    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!


  6. Thanks for responding to my comment,

    Will hear from you shortly,

    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.


  7. 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?

    • david on 17 Jul 2008 at 10:28 am

    I was wondering how I could add the rel=

    • JM on 17 Jul 2008 at 10:23 am

    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.

    • moserw on 07 Jul 2008 at 5:48 am

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