WordPress MU

Plugins, Widgets, SVN Repository


  • Support - tags - signup
    Wordpress' important user functions and such are in the wp-includes/pluggable.php file and have been designed to be overridable; a plugin could replace those functions and implement its own user login and authentication scheme.
    Best bet would be to use the Limit the email registrations feature at Dashboard -> Site Admin -> options and set it to only your companies email domain; remove the all of the links to the signup page as well even getting rid of the signup file
    put a redirect in the top of wp-signup that redirects them to a "custom" form on your site that mimics the signup process; then, create a blog in the back end (or add a user) if you want to "approve" it
  • OpenID


  • New feature on Wordpress.com: avatars available since 2006
  • WPMU Avatar widget users will be able to navigate to their Profile page and upload their own photo. The photo will appear next to their comments across your WPMU site, and, if they use my Author Profile Enhanced widget, in their sidebar next to their “About Me” text (demo)
    • based on Profile Pics plugin
    • The "can't upload" issue:
      • Subdirectory fix, subdomain fix (don't work?)
      • Upload form fix (for IE7 only?) open up wp-admin/profiles.php, find the form line about 15 lines down and change it to this: <form name="profile" id="your-profile" action="profile-update.php" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  • Post Avatar allows choosing from a predetermined set of images
  • Gravatar allows you to generate a gravatar URL complete with rating, size, default, and border options; it also shows LiveJournal userpics in comments
  • Localized comment avatar allows readers to specify a name, e-mail address and/or URL that they will always use when commenting, and to upload and assign an image to this combination of specified values
  • Sexy Comments plugin has avatar support


  • #topimg: change header picture (header_dkblue.jpg)
  • #header_title: increase the font size to 30px, add ITC Franklin Gothic Book to the font list, change change padding-top from 155px to 70px and remove text-transform: uppercase
  • #header_title2: increase the font size to 20px, add ITC Franklin Gothic Book to the font list and remove text-transform: uppercase


Wiki to blog extension


  • science blog feeds (from Jason):
looks like this: http://feeds.feedburner.com/scienceblogs/pharyngula
we might consider setting ours up like that as well. e.g. http://feeds.feedburner.com/openwetware/shareyourscience would be the name of mine.
