Plurk for WordPress

Plurk for WordPress displays yours latest plurks in your WordPress blog.


  • Simply
  • Customizable
  • Widget ready
  • Uses WordPress resources (no extra files needed)
  • No options page (yes, it’s a feature)
  • Multiple widgets (Thanks to Michael Feichtinger)


Drop the plurk-for-wordpress folder into /wp-content/plugins/ and activate the plug in.


If you use WordPress widgets, just drag the widget into your sidebar and configure.
If widgets aren’t your thing, use the following code to display your public Plurk messages:


Note: Your plurks must be unprotected (i.e. visible by the whole world)

Plurk for WordPress also has several configurable options. Here’s what you can configure:

plurk_messages('username', [msgs], [list], [timestamp], ['link'], [encode_utf8]); 
  • username: your plurk username
  • msgs: number of plurks to show
  • list: show plurks in a unordered list
  • timestamp: show a relative timestamp
  • linked: the link options
    • ‘all’: puts a link to the tweet status in all the tweet (the old-school way). This option disables the link discover features.
    • false or ”: no link at all to the tweet status
    • true or ‘something’: enable the link to the tweet status. You can customize the text.
  • encode_utf8:turn it on if you have encoding problems

Only username is required. The other parameters will take this default values:

plurk_messages('', 1, false, true, '#', false);

This is: 1 plurk, not in a list, with timestamps, with a # link to each plurk and without UTF8 encoding.

So, if I wanted to show my last 3 plurks, not in a list, with timestamps, with a Go link and encode_utf8, I would use the following:

plurk_messages('username', 3, false, true, 'Go', true);


The plug in provides the following CSS classes:

  • ul.plurk: the main ul (if list is activated)
  • li.plurk-item: the ul items (if list is activated)
  • p.plurk-message: each one of the paragraphs (if msgs > 1)
  • .plurk-timestamp: the timestamp span class
  • a.plurk-link: the tweet link class

Live Demo

plurk_messages('Ryck', 5, true, true, '>>', false);

>’, false); ?>

I was wondering if you ever considered changing
the page layout of your blog? Its very well written;
I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
text for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space
it out better?

My web-site;

Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic nevertheless I’d figured I’d ask.

Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa?
My blog covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other.

If you are interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward
to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
