Name: Videoplug Plus
Description: This plugin is NOT something new. It is an upgrade of the 'official' videoplug plugin. What I did was got it to embed videos from 11 different sources and put in an admin panel that lets "the admin" say which sources are allowed or not on the toolbar. You also get to set a parameter that causes the videos to scale to match your skin.
Something not so easy is that lots of sources must use the "embed" code due to how that's the only way to get the video's width and height parameter.
Videos embedded with the real version of videoplug will still work - as long as you have that source enabled on your plugins settings page.
Please don't comment here as no one monitors this space. In the forums or on my blog works much better :)
Name: Auto Forum
Description: Basically this plugin acts like a pinger to automagically create a phpbb2 forum post about your blog entry. The forum post will have the blogger's preferred name in the subject, and the permalinked title in the message. Pretty slick eh?
The hardest part will be figuring out the server path to your forums. After that the rest is fairly easy.
This plugin is a knockoff of AstonishMe's AM Custom Profile plugin. What it does is allow your bloggers to upload an avatar and create a signature block. The admin has to allow "user directories" for it to work, then each post by the blogger will show their avatar and signature block.
Mostly good for multi-user blogs?
This is a very simple "challenge and answer" where you get to ask your commenters (or message form users or registrants) a question they must answer correctly. If they don't you will be able to give them a hint and let them try again.
It uses ShrinkTheWeb website thumbnail provider, so you have to create a FREE account there in order to use the plugin.
* You can select custom width and height for any webshot.
* The plugin automatically converts all "Link to URL" links into clickable images.
* By default it caches images for 5 days which minimizes the traffic and increases the loading speed, you can change the number of days in plugin settings.
* Use the "Webshot" button to insert a thumbnail in your post.
Post To Myspace is a plugin that allows you to add a "Post To Myspace" link to your blog. This effectively allows you to copy/sync/duplicate your blog post on b2evo to Myspace using the "Post To Myspace" API provided by Myspace. It's not as automatic as importing an RSS feed, but currently it's the only way currently to import blogs into Myspace.
Additionally, you can allow readers to also post the content to their own Myspace blogs.
The plugin is implemented as a b2evo widget, which allows you to add it to any skin container via the Back Office control panel.
