I’ve created a simple plugin for WordPress that sets a cookie to opt-out of phorm’s data mining and marketing system. This will allow your readers to read your site without information being gathered about them. So if you wish to help protect the privacy of your readers please install this plugin.

Its very simple just download, install and activate.

I’ve just pushed to the WordPress SVN repository the new version of wp-RDFa, this will be version 0.2! This version adds Dublin Core publishing for your blog posts. A sample of the published triplets can be seen here:

After a couple of attempts and a couple of breakages on my blog (hey but this is dev) I’ve managed to modify the default values for the_author() . In this case it prints the authors name from WordPress via the template and I can now modify the output to include span tags and meta data automatically. This break through will allow me to added inline RDFa elements to any WordPress theme and create triplets of data. The next phase will be to allow users to input their own RDFa tags in posts.

Watch this space and expect wp-rdfa 0.2 soon(ish)
