Updated PubSubHubbub plugin for WordPress MU

I just updated my PubSubHubbub WordPress plugin to work with multi-user installations of WordPress and also verified that everything still works with version 2.9.1 of WordPress. If you haven’t installed the plugin yet, I encourage you to check it out.  It’s the fastest and easiest way to realtime enable your WordPress blog. I’ve now had over 1,200 downloads of the plugin and I’d be stoked if you added it as well. You can grab the latest version at:

As always, please let me know if you have any issues with the latest version.

If you’re curious what I changed, it turns out one of the secrets to making your plugin MU compatible is to register any of the settings you want to use.  This forum entry proved to be the solution I needed.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about, this post about PubSubHubbub is a good place to start.

Hope you’re having a fantastic weekend.


Search plugin for Google Caffeine

I read on Mashable and TechCrunch tonight that Google has released a developer preview of the next version of Google (code name Caffeine).  Wanting to try it out, I did a quick search to see if I could find a search plugin for Firefox.  Finding none, I decided to write one myself.  If you’re using Firefox, you should be able to click here to install my Google Sandbox search plugin.

And yes, I tried to upload my plugin to the Mozilla directory but I keep getting a “Not a valid install package” error.  I don’t have time to trouble shoot this right now.  If anyone can tell me what I’m doing wrong, I would much appreciate it.  I also didn’t have time to figure out Google’s URL to enable auto-completion.  If you happen to know the URL for the auto-complete AJAX request, please let me know in the comments.
