I just got a notice that the domain registration is coming due on houseofcranks, which means it’s been almost a year and we haven’t done anything with it. With all the happenings here at the House of Cranks this year, it may be time to remedy that. So I wiped and reinstalled WordPress. I’m still working out what plugins/themes I want, but here’s a running summary as I go along:
- Star Ratings – lets us add ratings, like this:
- Gravatars2 – gives us user avatars in the comments
- WordPress Flickr Manager – easy integration with Flickr
Although I’m not sure how it’s going to work when both Cam and I have Flickr accounts. Maybe we’ll have to make a group pool for cranks stuff.
- Cross-posting. It’d be nice to either syndicate posts from sculpin and elsewhere or cross-post entries from here to there. There doesn’t appear to be a wp to wp crossposter yet, though. Weird.
- Mobile/accessible theme
Installed WordPress Mobile Edition, still have to check accessibility.
- Comment subscription via email. People actually seem to use it at elsewhere, so… *shrug*
- del.icio.us/twitter sidebar?
- Paged comments? I don’t know if that’ll be possible with k2, or if it’s even going to be a problem.
- Wiki for garden notes?
- Amazon affiliate thing for crank-powered items?
- What else?
