WordPress inside-out

I got the dsablog working again. I re-installed the a completely new wordpress (and lost the acronyms I made in the process) and now you can log in again. I have no idea what went wrong.

Much cooler: I made my first wordpress plugin. I copied nearly everything from the acronym replacer plugin and now I have a plugin that replaces words (for example names of friends) with links to their pages. So Daniel, Alex and Roessi should each be linked now.

My next goal is to write a wiki format plugin well not quite: I don’t need the formatting I just want to be able to easily link to my wiki at WikiHome 🙂 I want to link wikiwords like DasSchwarzeAuge to their wiki entry.

Edit: this was much easier than anticipated – at least in the first small variant: for now only wiki words work that match the regular expression [A-Z][a-z]+[A-Z]{1}[a-zA-Z0-9]+.

My plugins are downloadable from my homepage use at your own risk:
# Link to Friends WordPress Plugin, just enter the names and homepages into the array.
# Link to Wiki Entries, add your $wiki_url="http://wiki.delusions.de";

Both plugins are tested with WordPress 1.2. There is another plugin that is quite similar to the “Link to Friends” plugin, it is the linkifier plugin, it is a bit more complicated but it supports more types of links.
