Formatted contact cards redux
This plugin produces a list of authors and administrators for a site with additional contact information: titles, e-mail, and an image link. This is similar to xkl_contact_card but adds the ability to add captions, and uses forms instead of blocks for formatting.
This plugin creates a link back to the current section, without needing to know what section it’s being called from. For example, I have a section of my site that is largely independent of the rest. For the title, I wished it’s “homing” function to go back to the section top, rather than the site top. Ergo,...
This plugin creates a list of permalinked article titles split out by month, year, and day. It is also possible to set the section that the articles are taken from. Many of the features have been supplanted by the far more versatile rss_suprarchive at this time, so this is really only included for...
This plugin modifies the sectional context for an enclosed block of code. This was an experimental sort of plugin at the time, and likely if you find you think you need this plugin, you might want to rethink how you are going about everything. Still, it’s included for completeness. Don’t say you weren’t warned! ;-)
A plugin for "Today in History" events
This plugin grabs the the current date page from the Wikipedia. It then parses out the “Events” section, and picks a few of these events at random for use on your page. The entire block is surrounded in a div with a class name that is supplied by the tag parameters. The number of items is also selectable as a parameter. It...

A plugin that transforms an article into a guestbook. Main features are reverse ordering of comments and paginated comments.

A Time Since generator
It takes a certain date specified in parts (i. e. year, month, hour etc.) and spills out a ‘time since’ information for the event, both past and future.
If some units are not provided, no values for these units are returned either. Some examples:
<txp:fha_time_diff year="2004" month="3"...

Redirect for Textpattern URLs
301 redirect and 404 not found handler for Textpattern articles. Redirects browsers and search engine spiders to the correct article URL after a title or section change, and displays a 404 response for articles that don’t exist.
Textpattern articles are currently reachable via several different
Google-styled page navigatioon
This plugin creates a navigation bar as seen on Google when you search for something. It has a wide variety of attributes so you are able to customize it untill you drop.
As of version 2.5 it was renamed from ob1_googlenav to ob1_pagination.
Some additional category Tags
1) Article-Form-Tag: Shows Categories, if they are set. (can only be used in an article form)
<txp:asy_showcat link="true" /> link is optional. If the article has categories set, this will output a text like (filed under catName). If link is set to true, catName will be a (section-aware) link.
Random Image from category
I created a plugin that will randomly pick an image from a category (or comma separated list of categories) and then output information assocated with that image. Some of the information that can be retrieved within a form are an
<img /> tag for the large image or thumbnail, the author, the caption, height, width, image and...
Random Image by Category
A little like Dean’s random image plugin, except this picks an image from those already uploaded through TXP.
Accepts a single attribute: category. Set this to the name of the image category the images should be picked from. Without specifying, the default behaviour is to pick from all...
Easy image links
This plugin will generate targeted links to pre-sized popup windows for images uploaded via Textpattern. Here’s an example.
You can use either the image name:
<txp:dca_pop name="hugo.jpg">a picture</txp:dca_pop>
or Textpattern’s internal image id:
Meta description and keywords tags
Thought it would be neat to have the use of the meta description and keywords tags in the had section again...the whole semantic web and all, you know. So I made my first plugin:
<txp:jad_metadata /> goes in the HEAD section, and uses the excerpt for the meta-description tag and a...
Expansion on permalinks
<txp:zem_link> creates links. It works as a replacement for txp:permlink, and it can also be used to create direct links to articles and pages.
In an article form, works the same as txp:permlink
Custom article list plugin
The chh_article_custom plugin is an enhanced replacement for txp:article_custom and txp:article, offering features like context-sensitive operation, support for multiple categories/sections, hierarchical category searching, and advanced date/time selection.
Beginning of Article to Form Excerpt
<txp:beginning /> tag allowing automatic excerpt generation from article body based on length attribute
I think there have been a few other plugins that will automatically create an excerpt (in fact one was just posted), but this one is a little different. Instead of including the first few words of...
