Yorik's wordpress plugins

These are plugins for wordpress that I created over time. Enjoy!

Image Feed Widget

This plugin allows to place widgets on your sidebars, that fetch the contents of one or more RSS feeds, combine them by date if there is more than one, and display the thumbnail images that are included in the feeds items. You can give the widget any number of feeds, and limit the quantity of images to be displayed. You can use any kind of RSS feed, but they must contain thumbnails (the plugin will check for, in that order, media:thumbnail tags, or enclosure tags, or, if none of these are found, an img tag inside the feed item description). If you don't undestand a word of this, just make sure your feed carries thumbnails, otherwise all you'll see is a "No thumbnail found" text... You can also use this plugin from your theme templates, to display images lists anywhere else on your blog and you can easily give them a fixed size or a maximum size with CSS styling.

Twitter List Widget

A widget to display a feed from a twitter list such as those generated from http://twiterlist2rss.appspot.com/ or from a comma-separated list of twitter feeds. In fact, any RSS feed where you want the links, the @someone and the #something to be turned into clickable links. This plugin allows to place widgets on your sidebars, that fetch the contents of one or more RSS feeds, combine them by date if there is more than one, and display their contents in a twitter-like manner, that is, a list of texts, where links, @someone and #something are turned into links. Use it typically to condense several twitter feeds into one, or to display any other feed that follows twitter syntax, such as identi.ca.

Last Video Widget

This plugin allows to place a widget on your sidebar, that will fetch the last post of the category you specify, and display it inside the widget. In addition, if that post contains a youtube video tag inserted by the Viper's Video Quicktags plugin, that video will be resized to the specified size, so you can fit it nicely in your sidebar width.
