- Guess what! He tackled the same problem I did regarding the “too general tag search”. Only instead of using multiple LIKE clauses as suggested by Johannes, Christian uses a REGEXP clause. It would be interesting to benchmark the difference. I’ll leave my version the same for now, and let Jerome decide which one gets into the official version. UPDATE: check out the comments below, where Johannes shares some benchmarks he performed on the two versions — MySQL likes LIKE.
- Christian adds the keywords to the categories in the feed. Personally, I don’t equate tags and categories, so I wouldn’t want this option myself — but it might be a nice feature to add to the official version as an option. Another option I’d like to see would be to add the keyword links to the end of the body text, as I have done in my feed (I must confess I hacked the feed source files instead of attempting to make this a plugin as I should — I’m not even sure if that can be done, actually).
That makes at least three people besides Jerome who have contributed to the functionality of this plugin, resulting in three different versions of the plugin itself, an add-on plugin, and a widget. What do you say, Jerome, can we get all these pieces packaged together before they get further split apart? Can we set up some sort of collaborative development project to help you to keep up?
BTW, I added the GNU GPL license file to my download of the plugin as soon as I realized that I had omitted it. Don’t want the FSF Troopers to come knocking on my door.
