Google Redirector plugin for WordPress 1.2

May 19th, 2004
Code, WordPress Hack

As suggested by SimonW ( ) and others, I have written a very small plugin for WordPress 1.2+ which creates Google redirected links for the author URIs as well as any links inside the comments.

Download the plugin from below and rename it to wp_google_redirect.php and drop it into the wp-content/plugins folder. Can be turned on or off from the admin without any other changes.

    When I install this plugin, it totally whacks my plug in page, then when I view my site, I get all kinds of php gibberish at the top of my site. I’m not sure what I did wrong, since all I did was download the plug in and rename it.

    Thanks for your help.

    There is a bug with this plugin and the Google Hilite. I am not sure if that is causing your issue, but you could try to deactivate the Google hilite and see if that makes a difference.

    I’m getting a 404 for it:

    “Not Found: The requested URL /b2-img/wp_google_redirect.phps was not found on this server.”

    When editing a comment in the latest 1.2 release candidate, I get an error even though the comment gets updated:

    Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/cowens/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wp_google_redirect.php:22) in /home/cowens/public_html/wp-admin/post.php on line 706

    Also, Http:// doesn’t get converted because of the uppercase H.

    Great work btw.

    Disregard my comment about the error.

    I fixed this by removing an extra space after the closing ?> in the wp_google_redirect.php file.
