And my first WordPress.org post was …

My post on this forum thread was my first one on WordPress.org apparently.

It was 8 years ago and WordPress didn’t have a plugin system and wouldn’t have until later. I had integrated Smarty into the b2++ project, with a nifty versioned template editor and even looked at doing the same with WordPress. Smarty had a plugin system that could be used in theory but nothing came of it.

What's in a Name?

I’m looking for a name for my WordPress+Smarty+multiblog hack. On IRC earlier, Liam thought up “Warty” which, while getting in “arty” from Smarty and the W from WordPress is slightly inappropriate.
Kae suggested, “SmartPress” which I like. What do you think?

Smarty Plugins Working in WP!

Yay! I got the “relatedstories” plugin working! The hardest bit was converting to use $wpdb instead of the PHP MySQL interface. I love that I could call get_permalink in post.html to figure out the story link:

{relatedstories}
{if $relatedstories}
  <b>Related Stories</b> ({$relatedstoriesWords})
  <ul>
  {foreach from=$relatedstories key=key item=story}
    <li> <a href="{get_permalink id=$story->ID}" >{$story->post_title}</a></li>
  {/foreach}
  </ul>
{/if}
