I mentioned to Peter Wood that I was trying to figure out how to get plus signs to show up when I combined the Movable Type category tag to automatically create a query and link to the Technorati tag for each category on the footer of my entries here and at Exploit Boston!. He made a nifty plugin called Tag Glue that does just that. Thanks, Peter! He said that it has only been tested with MT 3.14 so it may or may not work for older versions.
Here’s what the code looks like
< a rel="tag" href="http://www.technorati.com/tag/<$MTCategoryLabel tag_glue="+"$>” title=”check out the latest photos, weblog entries and Del.icio.us links related to <$MTCategoryLabel$>“>(t)< /a >
Unfortunately I haven’t seen many of my entries here or at Exploit Boston! showing up on the Technorati tags pages. I’m not sure what’s up with that. It doesn’t have anything to do with Peter’s plugin since it wasn’t working before either.
