Announcing the TranslateThis Button for WordPress

Announcing the TranslateThis Button for WordPress

I just released a new WordPress plugin to leverage the TranslateThis Button, a Javascript translation widget that uses the Google Language API. This plugin provides an easy interface for customizing the options in the TranslateThis Button. The widget can be either be displayed anywhere in your theme with a template tag, or be included as part of the widgetized sidebar.

The plugin provides a variety of settings that can be accessed in the WordPress admin section:

  • Control the languages in the dropdown and the text of the various UI elements.
  • Enable Google Analytics tracking for translation events.
  • Use new button imagery, or disable images altogether, opting for text-only links.
  • Confine the translation to the post/comments, or translate the entire page.
  • Disable the cookie, or allow the plugin to translate all the pages on your site automatically.

jQuery Contra Plugin – Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, enter

jQuery Contra Plugin – Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, enter

Remember the code from Contra on original Nintendo? Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start; it’s also known as the Konami Code and the 30 Lives Code.

This famous sequence of buttons from the 80′s isn’t going anywhere: in more recent times it’s been in a Moldy Peaches song, and used as an easter egg in Google Reader and Facebook, to name a few.

But I’m sure tons of great things can still be done with the code from Contra, so I built it into a simple jQuery plugin that can be easily used on any site.

The jQuery Contra Plugin allows you to call a function of your choice whenever a user enters the Konami Code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, enter).
