WordPress Hackery (stolen name from Chait)

WordPress Hack

Here is the list of WordPress hacks that I will be working on. Please comment or post an entry if you have more you would like to add or if you would like to work on a particular hack.
1) Blog This - Done – look at this post on TechGnome
2) Link This – Done – Look at this link in WP Forums
3) b2stats – Done – Look at this post WP forums
4) LJUpdate - Not done yet, will look into it :-)
5) Threaded Comments – Done – Look at this link
6) Clickable smilies on the user posting page - Done – Look at this post on the WP forums. I would be interested to know if this works on Opera.
7) Send/print this page hacks – “Send this page” has been worked on . Printing is taken care of through the print CSS. So I consider this done. Please correct me or add more stuff to this.
8) Auto convert friends names to links - Done – Look at this file for the hack.
9) Restructure wordpress so that the index.php installs in the root and the wordpress files run in a subfolder - I think this would be an intrusive hack and would take away from the work of the core developers. I understand that a lot of people want this implemented, but I am going to pass on this one. If anyone else wants to jump in, please do so.
10) Sticky post - Done – look at this link
11) Multiple Blogs - Need more on this
12) Style switcher - done in many ways, with good explanations – Look at this post on WP Forums

    Mark, do you think its possible for multiple authors to specify their own time zone? Have some other wp users interested in this as well. Thanks!

    Ideally the convert names to links thing would pull from the links database.

  3. Mark (14 comments.) says:

    Yes, but I want to make the hacks as non-intrusive as possible. Are there any plans to have a few extra tables in the wp database for hacks to be implemented without fear of having a non-working database with an upgrade?
