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.

    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 “+” ?

    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

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

    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?

    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.

    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*

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

    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!

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



  21. December 24, 2005 at 3:56 pm

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

    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!
