This caps my recent scripting urge… and is the most fun of the bunch in my opinion!
For those who have an account at my Unkymoods revival, Punkymoods (go get an account if you don’t!) and who blog with WordPress, here’s the tool for you! It is a WordPress plugin that will allow you to update your mood from within the WordPress control panel. All you have to do is upload two php files to your plugin directory, configure the first few lines, and voilà — more Punkyfun!
Note: you must have a Punkymoods account first!
Download the Update Punkymoods WordPress plugin Version 0.4 (March 30, 2008)
Punkymoods widget plugin! It includes the usual “Update Punkymoods” plugin but you can also drag and drop the Punkymoods display in the sidebar. Fun times… fun times indeed. Follow the same instructions as listed below for the normal Punkymoods plugin, but make sure to upload the files into the widget folder (wp-content/plugins/widgets/)
Note: if you have a wordpress.com installation of WordPress, you cannot use this plugin wordpress.com does not allow users to install plugins…
Brief instructions: download the plugin above. Unzip the two files inside to your WordPress plugins directory (likely /wp-content/plugins/). Log into your WordPress admin panel. Click on Plugins, then Plugin Editor, then Update Your Punkymood. Scroll down through the file until you see the lines “// set this to equal 0 for female, 1 for male, 2 to display all images” and “// enter your punkymoods login info”. Set the appropriate fields for your username, password, user id, and mood gender (all from punkymoods.com). Save your changes, go back to the Plugins menu, then activate the plugin. Go to the Manage menu to change your Punkymood from within WordPress!
