Oh ... Really?

New Plugin: Keywords

I finally got my head wrapped around new the Keyword plugin for Expression Engine. I have added a hidden field that will hold "tags" or keywords for each entry. Technorati, Flickr and Del.icio.us use a tagging system, now blogs can do this too ... and by pinging Technorati with each entry, the tags are recorded there too.

After much cursing, coding and trying to make sense of this all, I finally got my keywords template working right. I hope. Much credit goes to the EEWiki and John Hoke, who shared his template examples, from which I was able to make my own.

Now I have to go back through two and a half years of entries to add these keywords. *sigh*

In some ways, I am glad I lost two years of posts when a server died ... now I only have about 1000 posts to go back and keyword 😊

I am going to cheat and do it directly via the mySQL layer, but I do not recommend that for the weak of heart, or those who are not comfortable with SQL in general and EE in particular :(

Thanks for the plug and let me know if you need any more help with this stuff ... that's what I am underpaid for LOL!

You may also want to look at this post where I go through this step by step (or is that what you meant to link to above?)

LissaKay's avatar Thanks, John! I did mean to link to the other post as well, which I have now done. I also tried to TB ya, but for some reason, EE isn't sending those ... nor is it pinging Technorati. I've posted about that in the EE Tech Support forum ... still pondering.
