Display Name If No Gravatar

I created a new Plugin for WordPress that uses 0gravatar.com to generate an image of the user’s display_name if they do not yet have a Gravatar. This Plugin replaces the get_avatar function in pluggable.php to pass an alternate image to gravatar.com to use if they do not yet have a gravatar.

Comment on this post with an email address that you have not setup a gravatar on and see how it woks.


TERRIBL is now SHAREABLE

I added a whole new SHAREABLE Widget to my old TERRIBL Plugin. Now it’s even easier to share a link to your site. Check out my Shareable Link at the top of the left sidebar.

This new SHAREABLE Widget features customizable styles and easy-to-copy link code that others can put on there site. It also tracks Impressions and Click Through stats just like the the old TERRIBL Widget.

Check it out and lit me know how you like it. I’m always open to new ideas.

Aloha, Eli

A simple Widget to list choice comments as Testimonials

I wrote this little Widget for my Anti-Malware Pligins’ site, GOTMLS.NET. I get so many wonderful testimonials via comments from my … and I wanted to display some of my favorites in the sidebar. I’ve release this little Testimonials Widget on the WordPress Repository because I didn’t see any other plugin that did this simple task.

Just set the Comment Karma on your favorite comments then set the Karma value in the Widget settings to match. Otherwise this plugin just queries all the comments with the default Karma of 0.

I plan on adding a few more features when I have time but the idea here is to keep it simple: Display some rotating comments as Testimonials.

Let me know what you think in the comments.


New scan engine that works better on large file systems

I released the new scan engine in version 1.2.10.05 today. This is the scan process that I’ve had available as a BETA for a couple months but it was not ready for release until now. It take longer because it breaks the scan into smaller processes that complete independently of the scan initiation process. This has a better success rate (especially on server with lots of files or minimal memory) and allows for better error handling.

So there are now two types of scans:

  • Quick Scan – Good for small file systems, fast servers, or sites that have post restriction.
  • Complete Scan – Good for large file systems, servers with irregular permission issues, or low memory allocation.

The Automatic Fix process and File Viewer have been improved too. It loads nicer now and you can move this new pop-up window around on the page :-).

Please give me feedback on these new features and scan options.

Aloha, Eli
