OIO “addons” WordPress plugin

Filed under: Development

Every so often I get requests for little additions for OIO. I’ve therefore just released a small plugin that tackles a few such requests in one go. They are not meant to be full blown features, but helpers for certain issues – such as integrating OIO with WPMU.

The main features are:

1.) Integrate a standalone installation of OIO with any WordPress / WPMU blog (if you’ve got OIO installed as a WordPress plugin, you can ignore this feature).

2.) Type a placeholder such as [% oiopub-banner-1-left %] into any of your WordPress posts and it will automatically be converted into an OIO ad zone. The example would output banner zone 1 on the left of your post.

3.) Put an ad zone into your RSS feed.

This sounds great.

This is a non-techy asking this now, so apologies, but would I be able to place that code into the source code, to have advertising automatically appear?

I’m not quite sure what you mean. Do you want to copy and paste the “addons” plugin code into the main OIO file?

I’d be lookign to hardcode in some advertising spots, for example at the end of every post. That way it could go onto MU and I’d have a way of getting the advertising out there.

Awesome upgrades to a awesome product! I have been using a diff plugin forever for randomly adding ads to posts, which was never really a good solution when you have an image in the post. (Think, skewed display) With the shortcode addon, I can see this working perfectly for my own needs!

Thanks for the update!

@Mark – glad you found the additions useful. The shortcode will be integrated into the core during the next major release too.

@Joe – sorry, I see I’ve neglected your follow-up comment. I’m still not 100% sure on what you’d like to achieve – maybe you could write up a post in the forum explaining what you’d like to do in a bit more detail?

Hi Simon,

does this addon still works the same way or it has been included in core?
