Performancing Metrics

WordPress Plugin: bsuite_geocode

Here’s a nice geo plugin that makes use of Google Maps. From the author:

I’m a big fan of the WP Geo plugin, but I want more.

My biggest complaint is that I want to insert coordinates using Google Maps or MultiMap URLs, rather than insert them in the modified story editor. So I wrote a bit of code that reads through the URLs in a post, finds the “maps.google” or “multimap.com” URLs, fishes the latitude and longitude out of them, and adds some geocoding tags to the body of the post.

    Is anyone here anymore?

    You are getting comments from spammers by the dozen, are you doing anything about that? I sent you some emails the other day for new WordPress themes but nothing gets put up – is this site dead?

    Spam cleaned up.

    I am here. No matter what I do, it seems like I haven’t had enough time to post. This last semester of school is turning out to be more time consuming than I thought. I’m considering hiring a blogger in the meantime though, so I don’t have to keep upsetting people :P

    You really need to do something about this spam (aside from deleting it, I mean). I highly recommend both Bad Behavior and Spam Karma. The former keeps spambots from accessing your site, while the latter filters your comments/trackbacks.

    Spam Karma had some problems for me, but Bad Behavior installed. Thanks for the tip.

    I’ve also heard that wp-hashcash works well for spam, but haven’t tried it myself.
