Let Users Rate Your Post!

January 5, 2008

I know that whenever I’m reading a post, I can’t really be bothered writing a comment just to let the writer know what I thought of the article, which isn’t really fair to the author. However, this is a plugin that makes giving feedback to authors very easy.

WP-PostRatings is a fantastic free WordPress Plugin that allows you to easily input a rating system into your blog, and keep track of ratings made.

Along with the free download, there’s a plugin for showing results as a widget! Seriously, check out this plugin, as it is really worth a download. It’s in use over at my website KICKTOPIA.com and I love it!


Plugin Weekly (05/12/07)

December 5, 2007

First week of Plugin Weekly, and it’s a good one:

Google Adsense – It’s exactly the same as the Text widgets, but with (very) minor tweaks specifically for inserting Google Ads in the sidebars. It basically allows you to put javascript into the sidebars via widgets.

WP Super Cache – Everyone should have a copy of this plugin. It’s basically a very fast caching module for WordPress, and essential for when one of you’re posts gets made popular on Digg, or starts getting a lot of hits.

WP Polls – This plugin adds an AJAX poll system to your WordPress blog. You can easily include a poll into your WordPress’s blog post/page, and it’s very customizable.

obsocialbookmarker – Adds user-submission links at the bottom of each post for various social bookmarking sites which allows your visitors to easily submit them in a number of social bookmarking sites. Includes: del.icio.us, reddit, slashdot it, digg, facebook, technorati, google, stumble, and a lot more.

Also, check out MtDewVirus for a collection of over 10 plugins that are small but quite handy.

Grid Focus – A Fantastic Theme

December 1, 2007

I recently came across such a great theme, that I decided to integrate it into my blog GOSNEAKER.COM, and also post about it here.

The theme is called Grid Focus and it’s created by Derek Punsaslan. For this blog, I was looking for a very minimalist, but easy to customize theme, and Derek’s did the job perfectly.

After a few hours playing with the theme (still building the website though!) here’s the final result, or you can check it out live at GOSNEAKER.COM:

And the theme can be found at 5thirtyone here.
