Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Make Your WordPress Site Talk Like a Pirate

It’s been 9 years since I first released me Text Filter Suite plugin. The TFS is actually a collection o' a “TFS Core” plugin, plus several sub-plugins, includin' th' infamous “TFS Pirate”, which will turn yer posts and comments into pirate-speak fer International Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Over th' years, I have been meanin' t' refactor th' code. It really should be one single plugin, with an options screen t' enable individual components, choose which thin's t' filter (titles, content, comments, sidebar text, pages/posts, etc). Also, I’ve been wantin' t' add shortcodes t' allow ye t' apply filters (or exclusions) t' specific portions o' yer text. But, th' code has continued t' work fine, only needin' minor adjustments here and there o'er almost a decade o' use. Huzzah fer th' stability o' th' WordPress Plugin API!

Anyways, even though TLAPD is well past th' half-way mark in most places, it’s still not too late t' get in on th' fun. Install th' plugin, and enable TFS-Core and TFS-Pirate. Boom.

BTW, me plugin has been ported t' Drupal and Joomla, if ye happen t' swin' that way.
