Strip! is a WordPress plugin that allows you hide links from a given comment. Unlike other plugins that do the same purpose, you can restore the links anytime you want.

I developed Strip! because of an interesting trend in the behavior of my commenters: some would respond to my share their thoughts on a given post, but unfortunately link to some off-topic pages at the bottom of their comment.

BukoPie is a feed reader based on SimplePie and hacked into a WordPress plugin. The feed content presentation is heavily based on the demo provided with the default SimplePie package with the addition of functionality allowing users to subscribe to feeds and categorize them through tagging.

Nevertheless, you might want to try it.

SmartyPants On Demand

SmartyPants is a web publishing utility that translates plain ASCII punctuation characters into “smart” typographic punctuation HTML entities. This plugin allows you to conditionally enable SmartyPants for a single post/entry, affecting the the_title, the_content, and the the_excerpt fields by simply adding a custom field named smartypants-on-demand with a value of 1. Replace 1 with a 0 or simply delete the custom field to use WP’s wptexturize() instead.

tapsiLOG is the weblog publishing application formerly used on this site, before the switch to WordPress. PHP–based and using file–based storage, it featured its own templating system, comments and trackback posting/pinging.

Unfortunately, time constraints has forced me to move to the more mature and feature–rich WordPress, now a major force in the weblog publishing arena.
