Waypath: Content related blog posts from the Blogosphere

January 2nd, 2004
WordPress Hack

I got hooked onto the Waypath idea once I saw how it worked. The creators had hacked together a plug-in for MT and Radio. I wanted one for WP and B2. So here it is. Look at the hack code and instructions.
In simple words, this hack implements a pre-determined number of unsolicited trackbacks from the world of blogs on your post topic. Very cool way to surf the blogosphere! Imagine writing about the weaknesses of Microsoft RPC and getting 10 related entries from other blogs on the same topic. Information aggregation that is useful! See how it works at Mindful Musings Click on a post to get the post and related entries. Very configurable. Uses php XML-RPC.

Now with XHTML 1.0 Strict links which open a new window. Look at this change.

    Is the friend hack WP1.0 compatible? My entries/titles disappeared (they’re back now).

    But if it works for others with WP1.0, then I’d know it was my mistake and would try it again.

    Well darn, did I post on the wrong entry? I thought I was posting on the entry with the lists of hacks. DOH! That’s what I get for having too many tabs open, sorry.

    I got your WayPath hack working the first time *S*

    your waypath php hack doesn’t appear to work for me… I homebrewed my blog, but it’s php based, and i can’t right offhand see any reason why it shouldn’t work.
