Wiki Page Links 0.2

I hadn’t really thought about it for a while, but over the last 24 hours I’ve received two separate emails about my Wiki Links WordPress plugin.

Since it’s a holiday and I’m in Belleville, I have a little bit of free time. I fixed a bug that one of the people reported. It wasn’t linking to pages with ampersands. So I fixed that and similar string encoding problems. For example, I can now link to Wikipedia pages with apostrophes (Handy! Like Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog).

Around Christmas, I got an update from a user, Daniel Llewellyn. The patch has been available in the development version and I’ve been using it for months, but since I’ve been distracted by the new job and stuff I didn’t get it into a release. He added pipe (“|”) aliasing functionality like in Wikipedia, and edit links to new pages. That will be in 0.2.

You can get the new version from the official WordPress plug-in site.

  1. Wiki. Um, yeah. That’s nice. Er, we just got the new edition of WordPress for Dummies at my library?

    (Sorry, I just can’t get into this…)

    Happy Easter! That’s what you should post about–how many chocolate bunny ears did you get???


  2. The chocolate is all gone now. I really ought to learn how to stretch these things out…

  3. I know the feeling about the chocolate: mine lasted a whole day. I really need to lose weight, and scoffing two Easter Eggs in a day isn’t conducive to such.

    Thanks for the attribution on the “|” pipe aliasing. I might get around to adding some more functionality at some point, and sending you another patch.

  4. Hello,

    Thanks for this wonderfull plugin, although it did not work with the latest version of wordpress (running 3.1.5 at the moment), I made a fix that i wanted to share with you.

    The ? functionality did not work since new-page.php is replaced with a general post_new.php with post_type= giving if its a page, post etc. So here is the replacement code that made it work again! OpenSource FTW, Joey

    $content = str_replace($match, “{$page_title}[?]”, $content);
