Thirteen things about Mister Linky

Posted early… hey, it’s Thursday somewhere!! :)

1. Can you believe it? Mister Linky has never played TT before!

2. It’s true, even though Mister Linky has taken part in more than 4,100 Thursday Thirteens.

3. Last Thursday, 411 visitors left links on 151 blogs, which worked out to a total of 1,961 links all together.

4. In October, Mister Linky served up more than a million hits on just the header script alone!

5. There are a lot more stats but I’ve got to save something for next week!

6. I’ve learned so much about PHP, MySQL, Javascript I should probably teach a class in them!

7. I’ve also learned enough about WordPress to write a plugin.

8. I recently received a request for Expression Engine support, so I had to learn about that real quick!

9. I spent a weekend writing a plugin for that platform.

10. The Widget Wizard was upgraded recently. Read more about that here.

11. And Perma-Linkies are a new way of saving your links forever, making them easier for search engines and Technorati to find them Read more about that here.

12. There’s a CSS file you can/should link to, and you’re welcome to create your own customization of it. Read about that here.

13. Mister Linky is always eager to hear your suggestions for making the system better!

Wednesday, November 8th, 2006

If you haven’t been here in a while there are few things you might not know about…

1. The WordPress Plugin
2. The Widget Wizard was updated recently
3. Perma-Linkies — easy Technorati-friendly linkies
4. Expression Engine Plugin

P.S. If you’re using one of the plugins, be sure to grab the CSS link from here — I won’t post it here and risk messing it up for the zillionth time!!

Expression Engine Plugin

Sunday, November 5th, 2006

I’ve written a plugin for Expression Engine. Its functionality is identical the WordPress plugin I wrote, but it’s not quite as nice because WP does more for you than EE does.

You can get the EE plugin here.

This plugin is equivalent to the Auto-Linky Widget, i.e. you enter it in your post whenever you want a Linky.

Pretty soon I’ll get to work on plugins for Ever-Linkies and Comment-Linkies, which are just a wee bit more complicated.

Please leave a comment here if you intend to try out this plugin.

Do keep in mind that it’s only been lightly tested, as I do not use Expression Engine for any of my own blogs.

And please report any problems here.
