WordPress Plugins

To download my WordPress plugins, visit my profile on wordpress.org. Currently I have two plugins:

I am working on a MyBB plugin that uses the BotScout API to check new registrations for known spammers. When that plugin is approved, I will post the URL here.

You can also download the generic PHP code for the BotScout API, to be used with WordPress and other PHP-based applications. See this blog post for link.

    Thanks for the plugin. Just a heads up–when I activated it, it broke the RSS feeds on the WP site itself (I’m using it to display the latest posts in a specific category and when I clicked “activate” the category feed had a blank line before the start of the xml code, breaking the feed).

    I fixed it by deleting the blank line at the beginning of the plugin code and now it seems to be working–you might want to fix the version on the WP site.

      I’ll check it out, thank you!

    Is there a way to insert feeds in one page?

    I want to have a page showing updates from a number of sites’ feeds all related, but I don’t know if I can use this plugin to do it.

      Yes, you have to add the code to the page template.

      For example,

      <?php jp_get_rss_feed_items(“My feed URL”, 10); ?>

      will show the last ten items from a given feed URL. Replace “My feed URL” with the URL of the RSS feed you want to consume.

      If you want to show multiple feeds, visit http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/jps-get-rss-feed/faq/ for code sample.

    Likewise, this plugin also broke my site – I am running WP 2.9.2…would really like to give this plugin a try but not sure where this blank line that Jessica mentions is – perhaps I can correct with more information?

    Hey JP, love the plugin, but for some reason the latest time I installed it, the site broke. I get this

    ‘Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/content/z/a/c/xxxxxxxxxx/html/xxxxxx/wp-content/plugins/jps-get-rss-feed/jp_get_rss_feed_items.php:30) in /home/content/z/a/c/xxxxxx/html/xxxx/wp-includes/pluggable.php on line 890’

    I believe this broke my site as well. I too got the ‘Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by…’ message. The site is completely blank when I go to the URL, how do I fix it?

      I’m afraid I don’t know how to get your site back up. What you can do is FTP to your site and delete the plugin file/directory. That’s what I do when a plugin I install hangs.

    I updated the plugin, it seems to work now. Make sure WP is updated to the latest version (3.0.3).

    The updated version (1.1) should be available on WordPress.org shortly.

    If you can’t wait, all you need to do is delete the closing PHP tag towards the top of the plugin file, and delete the opening PHP tag that follows it (that’s all I did).

    I am creating a blog site now. It is not finished, so if you happen by it, the site will not look finished. I am not a php programmer and I would like to know how to modify your code to open each link in a new window. I do like the simplicity of the code. Thanks, Nick

      I detest links that automatically open in a new window or tab, so I’m afraid I won’t be able to assist.

      As an end user, if I want to open a link in a new window, I know how to do so without your help.

      A simple internet search will tell you how to modify URLs to enforce this behavior.
