Reveal IDs

With WordPress 2.5 being released, the IDs on all admin pages have been removed as it is. Propably due to the fact that the common user dont need them. However, for advanced WordPress Users/ developers those IDs were quite interesting for some plugins or template tags.

What this plugin does is to reveal most removed entry IDs on admin pages, showing the entry IDs, as it was in versions prior to 2.5.

Dynamic Widgets

Dynamic Widgets gives you more control over your widgets. It lets you dynamically place widgets on WordPress pages by excluding or including rules with just a few mouse clicks by role, dates, for the homepage, single posts, pages, authors, categories, archives, error page, search page and custom post types.

Live Blogging

To see this plugin in action, you can watch this screencast: http://www.pling.org.uk/static/Live_Blogging_for_WordPress_2.0.swf

Live Blogging is a plugin developed to support blogs that are doing live micro blogging of running events, such as major sport events or tech conferences. (such as the Roses sporting tournament at the University of York).

Using WordPress 3.0’s custom post types, the plugin allows you to create these micro blog entries in a stripped down version of the normal post edit screen. These micro blog entries then get included in a post which has been activated as the microblog.

By default, the plugin uses AJAX polling to allow your readers to instantly update what they are viewing, including any new comments posted on the post. For professional bloggers, Meteor is supported, which gives the smoothest updating experience for your viewers and also significantly reduces the load on your server.

Additionally, the plugin also supports integration with Twitter – if activated, the first 139 characters of each live blog entry will be posted to Twitter when they are made.

Using this plugin will give you an advantage over your competitors if you’re blogging from live events – your readers will get updates quicker, and it will integrate into your blog better than competing systems, such as CoverItLive.

Hikari Category Permalink

One of these permalink structure tags is %category%. By default, WordPress always use the category with lowest ID, making %category% impractical for SEO optimization.

Hikari Category Permalink allows post authors to choose among each post’s categories, which of them is used in that post permalink, giving much more flexibility and power to permalinks.

New2WP Author Box

What this plugin does is utilize the WordPress dashboard profile section, which is so very neglected to my knowledge. It will replace the Yahoo IM field that most people may find rather useless, with a Twitter field.

Authors can then add their Twitter name, if they choose, and using the other existing fields they can add their URL to their website, with a little blurb about themselves in the biographical info box, and obviously their email address. It’s very basic, but does the job for most multi-author sites.
