WP-CaTT: WordPress Category Technorati Tag Plugin

WP-CaTT is a WordPress Plugin that appends a link in a post’s category listings to the corresponding Technorati Tag page. No need to add additional information to your post, you create the tags by categorizing posts, something you probably do already.

  1. hi.

    i just installed the wpcatt plugin. i don’t know whats wrong, but when i have multiple categories, it returns href=”technorati.com/tag/+thetag” instead of “technorati.com/tag/thetag”

    how do i get rid of the unwanted “+” ?


  2. Hi there!

    A quick question. How do you control where the tag is displayed? The default install seems to put it on the same line as the title (pushing it over) rather then next to the catagory listing


  3. Just installed it on my site, and I love it. Works well and installs easily. Thanks!

  4. Great Plugin, simple to install! I have one problem though, whenever I change the Tehcnorati marker from (t) to the image it (the image) relocates down to the bottom of the post rather than beside the category?

  5. Ab sofort: Technorati Tags

    Ab sofort setze ich in diesem Blog “Technorati”:http://www.technorati.com Tags ein. Am Ende jedes Beitrags befindet sich nun neben der Kategorie auch ein Hinweis auf das dazugehörige Tag bei Technorati. Damit können Sie leicht nachlesen, was andere…

  6. thanks’ a lot!
    simply perfect!


  7. Thanx a lot sir!!!!

  9. one more user for your list 😉

    thanks for the good work!

  10. garrick,

    i just installed this plugin, with image link display.

    anyway please take a minute check, you broke the standard validation. it’s happened because of mostly WP theme currently published are using XHTML as well. please fix it by adding trailing slash and the alt element in line 25.

    thanks, and keep this great work.

  11. garrick … 1.2.4 is buggy too,
    in line 25, please use
    [snip] … alt="Technorati" />
    instead of
    [snip] … alt=""Technorati"" />

    you have to put my name in code credits for this clue *kidding*

  12. FP, thanks for the correction.
    Note to self; have the second cup of coffee before writing code.

  21. Is there any way that one can use this plugin in that if you use more than one catagory in a post, the tag doesnt add the catagories into the one technorati tag?

    For instance if I have About Me as the catagory, then add another: ‘ Life ‘ The Technorati tag becomes:


    Any help would be great!

  22. Hi,

    I’m unable to unzip your plugin on my old Macintosh system. Do you have an alternate text page that I can copy?



  23. Any word on WordPress 2.0 compatibility? I don’t see any mention on the compatibility page.

  24. Meow! Thank you so much for this wonderful plugin. It is so helpful since now we won’t have to do anything extra to add technorati tags to our site about news and reports for cats!

  25. […] WP-CaTT. Es un plugin se dedica a convertir en tags de Technorati las categorías de nuestro post. Eso está muy bien, pero se queda corto (no siempre creamos una categoría para definir un aspecto de un post), así que su uso se presupone complementario a otros que nos permitan incluir tags aparte de las categorías existentes. […]

  26. […] Beau over at Basic Juice posted a nice overview of Pinot Meunier last week, but is having problems getting Technorati to index his tag. So at least this post will show up next to my lonely tasting note from 198 days ago. Check out his post, and help Beau if you know what the tagging problem is (looks like he is doing everything correctly to me, except not using WordPress and Garrick’s WP-CaTT plug-in . […]

  27. thx really a nice addon and works great :)

  28. […] I use the wp-CaTT plugin for a simple Technorati hook. All it does is add Technorati links straight off the WordPress categories I choose for each article. I like it because it is simple, focused, and fast. I don’t have to do anything extra — always a bonus, I’m very lazy — to get it to work, and it doesn’t slow down my website either (generally, DreamHost does that just fine all by itself). Other plugins I looked at got all complicated with specialty tags where I’d have to remember not only the syntax, but to do it at all while scribbling my notes down. Or, they had so many (admittedly very impressive) bells and whistles that I simply wasn’t utilizing all of them which always seems a waste. Or worse of all, they slowed the site down. […]

  29. Great Plugin. Simple, easy, I do recommend.

  30. Damn, it breaks WP 2.2 write interface ! Any tips to fix this ?

    Thanks for the plugin :)

  31. Does v2.0b work on WP 2.2? It’s been out for over 2 weeks and I haven’t seen anything posted here about it.

  32. v2.0c is compatible with WordPress 2.2
