Reading list

03/07/05 | by [mail] | Categories: computer/tech

Scratch this off the short list of things I had to leave behind when I switched from Movable Type to B2evolution. I had a very nice MT plugin that let me post books that I was reading. It would create links to Amazon.com with more information about each book (or cd, movie, whatever). If someone clicked through and bought the item, I would get a few cents for referring them. B2evolution doesn't have a plugin like that, but I can include a second blog and post my links and images to it (which I have to build at associates.amazon.com). I've got three titles posted on the right. So, it's not quite as nice as the plugin, but it works. And I'm still working on it.



I am pretty sure that you are smart enough to write your own plugin. Then when the rest of us switch over, we won’t need to figure it out! :)

I don’t know about that. There are some scripts written in php that do something similar. This site has adapted one of them to make a very nice ‘bookcase’ in the sidebar. The next version of b2evolution is supposed to be much easier to write plugins for.
