Two New WordPress Plugins

Posted by on Jun 29, 2010

If you haven’t noticed, there are two new things on my blog that I have yet to talk about, and I owe both of them to two guys and two WordPress plugins.

The first was recommended by our friend Sire who wrote a post titled Wassupblogs Posts Are Copyright Protected With Digiprove. Yeah, long title, but he did bring to my attention this plugin from a company called Digiprove. What it does is adds a copyright to the bottom of each post that proves it’s from you originally. That way, if you have to fuss at someone because they’ve stolen your content, which happens often, and you need backup proof that it’s yours, the digital sign is there.

I’ve noticed most people who steal my content also steal other things of mine that sometimes don’t work for them, such as my ReadSpeaker plugin. This means that my copyright thing will be at the bottom of whatever they steal. Well, at least it’s supposed to be. One, it won’t go back and update it on previous posts, although I’ve found that if you go in and make an update to any older posts that it will add the proof. Two, every once in awhile it will skip an article if you’ve post-dated it, which is irritating but easily correctable. You have to sign up for the service, though it’s free for most of us, and then you’re good to go.

The second plugin was recommended by our friend Dennis while we were talking via instant messaging. He kept asking me why I didn’t have a retweet button on this blog, which I used to have, but the plugin I was using (the name of which escapes me now) kept locking up this blog. I asked him what he was using and he said Topsy. Now you’ll notice that at the top of each post, to the right, is this little box that you’ve probably seen on a host of other blogs. It makes retweeting easier if you choose to share this article. It also makes my friend Scott happy since he’d been copying my full blog links, which didn’t give him any room to add a comment, as this plugin also creates one of those tiny urls that are prevalent all over Twitter.

Anyway, if you’ve been looking for something that can handle this issue for you, there you go; enjoy.

Thanks for the link love Mitch, me ol’ mate. I reverted to Topsy a little while back as well and I prefer it to tweetmeme which is the one I used previously.

Good to see that I can still mold a Yank or two to my way of doing things 😉

I have moved to the latest wordpress 3. Does those plugins work with version 3? I think it will fix exactly to my new moving company blog.

I have been wanting to use a prominant retweet button, but it seems it might clash with my pics inside my posts. Perhaps i’ll play around with it to find the right real estate for it.

That digiproof plugin is one i’ve never heard of and seems to add more credibility to a blog…not that you it Mitch because I know you’ve been at this for a while 😎

Thanks Caleb. Actually, I noticed that the one time I thought about putting an image on the first line that it does alter the look just a little bit. However, most of the time I start my image at the second paragraph, so it will work just fine for me.

Mitch,

Only just coming across this post now, sorry about very late reply. Our company Digiprove produces the copyright proof plugin. We weren’t aware that is not handling post-dated posts properly. We’ll look into that and fix it.

Thanks for mentioning us. By the way there is a very significant upgrade of the plugin coming out soon and we will be looking for people to try out the release candidate and give feedback – let me know if you are interested.

Mitch Mitchell:

Hi Cian; thanks for stopping by. I’d love to be one of the people trying out the upgrade; I have 4 blogs in total, and this is the only one I have the copyright program running on. And I’m glad you’ll be addressing my concern; it’ll keep me from having to go back weekly and renew each post to get the copyright notice back on. 🙂

That’s great Mitch. We did find the error about future-dated posts and the solution is incorporated in the new release. We need to do a final few tests here ourselves before we have a release candidate. I’ll send a link to the new plug-in to you in a couple of days

Regards
Cian

Thanks Cian; I’ll be looking forward to it.
