Plugins etc. used here

These are the WordPress plugins that I’m using here:

General:

  • Language Switcher to allow the visitor to switch between German and English.
    If you want to write your comments in both languages, you can do it like this:
    [lang_de]Dieser Text erscheint nur bei deutscher Einstellung.[/lang_de]
    [lang_en]This text only appears in English language setting.[/lang_en]
    Text außerhalb erscheint immer / text outside appears always.
  • myGallery for the image galleries (incl. the random picture on the right)
  • WP-PageNavi for the better page navigation

Single posts and comments:

  • WP-Polls for the polls. ***
  • Smiley+Format Javascript Buttons: clickable smileys and format buttons for writing comments. ** ***
    Based on Smiley JS Buttons; I added “more/less” links (for the many smileys whose codes can be added to the theme’s functions.php or a simple plugin) and a few simple format buttons (see comment field). I didn’t have the time yet to write a proper documentation, so, for now, just this brief description:
    The original’s web page contains a guide; my modifications can be configured at the beginning of the PHP file (no admin page, sorry), and you should add suitable definitions to your theme’s stylesheet.
    Download: sfjb.zip contains smiley_format_js_buttons.php, which, as usual, must be copied to the wp-content/plugins directory and then activated.
  • AJAX Comment Preview: Preview of comments with complete WordPress processing (quotes, formatting, smilies). * ***
  • WP AJAX Edit Comments: Commentators can edit their comments for a certain time to correct typos etc. * ***
  • Subscribe To Comments Reloaded offers commentators the option of e-mail notification when more comments are added. *
  • The directly included functionality of Gravatar shows the commenters’ pictures that they have registered with Gravatar.com.
  • ag Moderate Some Comments, my own plugin to force moderation of all comments on some selected posts.
  • Wockers Comment-Name-Check *
  • DoFollow: Disable the “nofollow” tagging for comments.
  • Enhanced Simple Spoiler can make text to be shown/hidden by the user (e.g. “show translation”). ***
  • Antispam Bee and NoSpamNX as spam protection.
  • WP-UserAgent for the icons that show browser and operating system of the commentator.
  • Statistics:

    • WP-PostViews enables you to display how many times a post/page had been viewed. ** ***
    • Search Phrases registers and displays the search phrases that took users to this blog. *
    • Feed Statistics shows subscriber and post statistics.
    • FeedStats shows total feed requests.

    Other:

    • Better Feed can e.g. include a footer with copyright in the RSS feeds.
    • Font Awesome provides some symbols (Home, Twitter, speech bubbles etc.)

    * With my adaptions for translation
    ** With more adaptions/modifications by me
    *** requires visitor to have JavaScript enabled

    If you want my modifications, you can have them on request until I publish them “properly” in the future.

    Other functions which are no plugins but directly integrated into the theme:

    • The recent search phrases are displayed via a function that can add text to the output depending on the post’s numerical ID.
    • Many smilies are from Kolobok.
    • Increase/decrease size of comment input field with simple Javascript links.
    • And several others…

    2. Okay, wir wissen jetzt also, dass Alice-DSL-Kunden aus dem Raum Berlin rumklicken können. Aber ich bin mir sicher, die meisten anderen Alice-Kunden und/oder Berliner sind zu mehr in der Lage – z.B. ganze Wörter oder gar ganze Sätze zu schreiben. :mrgreen:

    3. :goodpost:

    4. sehr hilfreich gerade für mich. Ich hatte 4 Monate keinen Blog und suche mir gerade wieder die für mich interessanten Plugins zusammen. Fein fein! :-)

    5. coole sache, dass du deine plugins und sonstige raffinessen deines – übrigens meiner meinung nach extrem extrem gelungenen – blogs (bzw. das design halt, inhalt hab ich noch nicht so geschaut..) zur verfügung stellst..

      was mich interessieren würde, was hat es mit der anzahl der kommentare neben des namens aufsich?

      und noch eine frage, ich find nämlich deine smilies beim kommentarformular grenzgenial und ebenso die lösung (auf- und zuklappen) ziemlich chic… glaubst du gäbe es da die möglichkeit, eventuell mit einer zip datei mir code und grafiken zukommen zu lassen?

      :danke:

      cheerz

      • Eine alte Fassung des Smilie-Codes ist oben verlinkt (sfjb.zip), allerdings sind die Smilies damit in neueren WP-Versionen nicht so schön sortiert. Müsste ich mal aktualisieren und um die ganzen Smiliecodes selbst ergänzen, denn die werden anderswo gesetzt.

        Die Kommentaranzahl, die angibt, wie oft jemand mit diesem Namen kommentiert hat – in deinem Fall gab’s noch ’nen anderen Andi, deswegen steht da 7 statt 2 (eine Unterscheidung nach URL oder Email war allerdings auch nicht so praktikabel…) – wird im Theme direkt aus der Datenbank ausgelesen.

        Im Moment fehlt mir die Zeit, näher darauf einzugehen, aber ich denke, ich werde in den nächsten Tagen oder wenigen Wochen über beides noch was schreiben.

    All inputs are optional. The e-mail address won't be published nor shared.

    • Moderation: Comments from first-time commentators must be approved manually before they appear.
    • Behave yourself! No insults, no illegal content, etc.! Should go without saying, don't you agree...?
    • Website: I don't mind blogs with ads, but purely commercial links are not welcome and will be deleted. Just like pure spam comments.
    • E-mail notification on new comments: You will have to activate this function once with a link in an automatically sent confirmation mail. These notifications can be disabled again with the link in every mail, of course.
    • Twitter: If you got a Twitter account, you can enter your Twitter name (with or without the @, doesn't matter) which will then be displayed next to any comment (including old ones) that contain the same e-mail address. (Which also means that you must fill in that e-mail field.)
    • Your own image (avatar)? Register at Gravatar.com with your e-mail address and upload an image – this will appear here and on many other blogs (as long as you specify your e-mail address here, of course).
    • Allowed HTML tags: <a href="" title=""> <abbr title=""> <acronym title=""> <b> <blockquote cite=""> <cite> <code> <del datetime=""> <em> <i> <q cite=""> <s> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <big> <small> <u>
