Dashboard: Technorati Reactions Extended

Widget for the WordPress 2.7+ only dashboard to display your latest technorati reactions, with configurable options (not yet).


Extract all files from the ZIP file, making sure to keep the file structure intact, and then upload it to `/wp-content/plugins/`.

This should result in the following file structure:

- wp-content
    - plugins
        - dashboard-technorati-reactions-extended
            | dashboard-technorati-reactions-extended.php
            | readme.txt

Then just visit your admin area and activate the plugin.


The new widget will show up automatically on your dashboard. If you use Dashboard Widget Manager plugin and have specified a custom widget order, you will need to visit it’s management page and add this new widget to your dashboard.


Does this plugin support other languages?

Yes, it does. See the WordPress Codex for details on how to make a translation file. Then just place the translation file, named `dashboard-technorati-reactions-extended-[value in wp-config].mo`, into the plugin’s folder.

[…] Dashboard: Technorati Reactions Extended – Wer sich viel im WordPress-Dashboard aufhält, wird ja sicher die Liste “Eingehende Links” kennen. Genauso wird man vermutlich in den vergangenen Monaten miteröebt haben, wie dort oft gar keine Links zu finden waren. Die Kombination aus WordPress und der Google-Blogsuche, die dort Verwendung findet, ist nicht gerade ein verlässlicher Indikator für Verlinkungen innerhalb der Blogosphäre!

Endlich verpasst man keine eingehenden Stöckchen oder sonstigen Trackbacks mehr! […]
