WordPress plug-ins: ideas for content management and creation

  1. Auto-link to
    1. Wikipedia articles
    2. Dictionary website
    3. Posts on the same website
  2. Universal spell checker and grammar checker
    1. Universal like the universal broken link checker
    2. Custom dictionaries
    3. Custom grammar rule checking like in MS Word
  3. Privacy policy constructor
    1. Have each plug-in and theme declare privacy-policy related information
    2. Checkboxes to include/exclude information from each plug-in, theme, or other source
    3. Checkboxes for boiler-plate language
    4. Ability to display the EU cookie warning
    5. Work with privacy NGOs (and government agencies?)
      1. Follow best practices
      2. Get “certified” as being super-awesome
      3. Participate in net-wide initiatives like the black-out day
  4. Colophon plug-in
    1. Ability to auto-list plug-ins
    2. Referral links
    3. Link to reviews on the website or off the website
  5. Wikipedia importer
    1. Some plug-ins exist but are either feature poor or abandoned
    2. Wiki Embed plug-in
    3. Other links
      1. Manual: Using content from Wikipedia
      2. Alternative parsers
      3. Manual: Pywikibot/Scripts
      4. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Blog/Converting_wiki_pages_to_blog_posts
      5. https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/120259/running-a-python-script-within-wordpress
      6. http://wiki.dbpedia.org/About
      7. http://blog.prashanthellina.com/2007/10/17/ways-to-process-and-use-wikipedia-dumps/
      8. https://import.io/
      9. http://doc.scrapy.org/en/0.24/intro/overview.html
      10. http://codecanyon.net/item/easy-wikipedia-api-plugin-for-wordpress/3814400
  6. Alternative content for devices that cannot display Flash
  7. PDF manipulation
    1. Reduce files size
    2. OCR
    3. Extract OCR so that it can be translated, figure out a way to display it outside of the PDF
    4. Mass modification of metadata in PDF
    5. Basically, look at all of the PDF software tools and implement the functions that make sense–splitting documents into multiple pages is unnecessary, for example
  8. Bidirectional communication between Flickr and WordPress
    1. Titles
    2. Tags
    3. Comments
    4. XIFF
    5. Anything that the API will allow
  9. A VERY lightweight page with a graphic to show the rest of the page is loading
  10. Export Email to WordPress
