February 8th, 2004
WordPress Hack

This hack can be used by any PHP enabled blog/site to display their Technorati Link Cosmos. You can see it at work on the right and the instructions can be downloaded here.

#EDIT# Now updated with a better automatic cache mechanism!!

    Is something supposed to show on my blog? I have it installed, I believe, correctly. Yet nothing shows anywhere on my blog. No error messages are showing either.

    On another note, what is the Technorati bubble at the end of your post all about?

    Did you follow all the instructions in the readme.txt?
    The technorati bubble just shows the technorati backlinks for the post.

    I don’t seem to be able to use it. When I add the include (tried it at the very bottom of my page) it makes things stop showing up, e.g., I have ‘links’ and then ‘helpful’, if I add it after that it stops showing ‘links’ and ‘helpful’ categories above it.

    I keep getting Invalid API error messages, but it’s the right API. I went to the Developers Wiki and there was a bug report yesterday that said that the API was delivering this message. Then, later was a note that said it was fixed, but if it happens again then the server must be timing out and to keep trying.

    My searched all over the web for a script like yours and REALLY want to use it. But, I have a very active web site and the thing has to work all the time. Is it your experience that the API does work all the time and this is an unusual occurence? And, while I cannot get mine to work, I see that yours on the right is working. Why is that? Is it not real time?
