GetWIKI Plugin

by Sajin

GetWIKI plugin lets you embed a Wikipedia article anywhere in your blog. Installation is the simple drop-in-your-plugins-directory method that most WP plugins follow. Once installed, you can embed a WIKI article in your post with ease. The plugin currently looks for redirects, but does not handle other HTTP responses.

Usage

Usage: ~GetWIKI(Wiki_Article_Slug)~

For example, ~GetWIKI(Bekal_Fort)~ will bring embed the Wikipedia article on Bekal Fort in your blog.

Updates

The plugin has been modified to add these:

  • use the simple-cache plugin by Jeff (originally used in GetWeather).
  • add css for wiki articles
  • make 'edit' and 'retrieved from' links optional

Configuration

The default cache duration is 10080 minutes (1 week), which you can change in the plugin. Also, the cache feature can be enabled/disabled in the plugin.

$use_cache = true; //Use cache or not
$cache_life = 10080; //Cache life in minutes after which article is refreshed
$edit_link = false; //[edit] links in the article to be displayed or not
$retrieved_link = false; //’Retrieved from’ information to be displayed or not
