EP Social Widget now with shortcode

Our very popular social widget plugin has been updated with shortcode support so that you with ease can display your social links in posts and pages. Here is a short how to.

[ep-social-widget facebook="https://facebook.com" gplus="https://plus.google.com" rss="1"]

Available networks are

  • facebook
  • gplus
  • twitter
  • flickr
  • youtube
  • rss

Just use the one you want to display in your post/page and give it a link. The RSS option only need a 1 as value if you want that displayed. Remove any network completely to remove it from the post/page.

Download it from the WordPress Plugin Directory.

Base64-encoding media assets in WordPress

I needed to serve some WordPress posts as web views to some mobile apps. But the app guys wanted the all the images inside the_content to be encoded into base64-strings, for offline caching. This was made into a tiny little plugin which you can download and use as you see fit.

When enabled, this plugin will encode all images sitewide on your website. This is generally a bad idea. Should you need help tweaking the plugin further, just drop me an email. Download the plugin here.

UPDATE: This plugin is now released at the WordPress Plugin Directory. Download the plugin here.

Hashimage updated with async loading

From the start we always felt that we needed to do something about the slow loading of the hashimage plugin. Today we have updated it with the option to use async loading, letting all the heavy work to be done after initial page load. See the settings page for this new option.

In this update we have also integrated support for pic.twitter.com and images in the lightbox are no longer cropper and cut, say hallo to the whole image scaled down.

As usual, you find this amazing plugin in the WordPress Plugin Directory and please leave a comment if you have any suggestions or just like the plugin.

The new latest version is 2.3.0.

Hashimage WordPress plugin updated

During summer last year we published a dirty site for displaying images from a certain Twitter hashtag. In august the same year we got the question to make it a WordPress plugin. Said and done, we made a plugin a few hours later. Now, it’s updated with some new features and released at WordPress plugin directory.

The news in the code are:

  • Shortcode for easy use directly in your post or page content.
  • Timthumb resizing, so you don’t have to load large images every time.
  • Displaying clicked images in a lightbox with Slimbox 2.
  • Admin settings page for thumbnails and lightbox image sizes.

We hope you enjoy this plugin.

WordPress is a system we have been using a lot , since years back. Today, for the first time, we release a plugin to the WordPress plugin directory.

Christmas gift to the Internet: Hundstallet WordPress plugin

I recently fell in love with _all_ the homeless dogs on the Hundstallet website.
I’m sure everyone would. And seeing as dogs has been mans best friend for many years, i thought we’d better give something back.

When installed, this WordPress plugin will override your theme’s 404 page and instead display a random homeless dog + links back to Hundstallet and to your homepage.
Try it here! Download and contribute here! UPDATE! We have now released this plugin at the WordPress plugin directory, we recommend you to download it from there in the future, still, the git repository will be kept updated as well.

Since Hundstallet is a Swedish organisation, all copy is in Swedish.

(Hundstallet does not know about this plugin. If you are a representative for Hundstallet and like us to take this plugin down, please let us know.)
