Dougal Campbell's geek ramblings

WordPress, web development, and world domination.

Piratify Your Blog!

There’s only one week left until Talk Like a Pirate Day! If you haven’t already downloaded my Text Filter Suite, which contains the awesome tfs-pirate filter, then you’d better hop to it! What’s that? You want to know what it does? It turns your blog into pirate-speak on Talk Like a Pirate Day! Well, it does some other stuff, too, but we’re mostly concerned with the piratey bits here.

For example, if you typed this:

I was driving to my girlfriend’s house the other day, and some guy cut me off and almost ran my car off the road! I hate when people do stupid things like that. Don’t you?

Then it might come out something like this:

I were sailin’ t’ me girlfriend’s house th’ other day, and some lubber cut me off and almost ran me boat off th’ sea, avast! I hate when scallywags do daft thin’s like that. Don’t ye, and a bucket o’ chum?

Doesn’t that make you wish that every day was Talk Like a Pirate Day?

  1. Dougal, your existence continues to sadden me. Don’t make me tell Chuck what you spend your free time on!

  2. Dougal says:

    Oh yeah, like you’re one to talk about what one does with free time. 😉

    TFS is my favorite plugin, hands down.

  4. adam says:

    well, okay, akismet is close.

    if i could get TFS to pirate-ify my spam, though, i wouldn’t mind having spam.

    Adam, IINM, Dougal’s TFS does filter comments as well. Last year I had visitors talking like a pirate too, and it’s the Filter that’s hooking it I think.

  7. Mark says:

    Just to be clear, the TFS Pirate filter will automagically piratify one’s blog on TLAPD? E.g. I don’t have to write a post, use special tags or anything?

  8. Dougal says:

    Mark: yes. It will automatically convert all posts and comments to pirate speak on TLAPD. But you can control it on individual posts (and/or comments on a post), as well.

  9. James says:

    I’m missing something… what EXACTLY do I have to enter into the custom field box to piratify my post or the comments?

  10. James says:

    I’ve entered “comment_filter” in the Key field and “pirate” in the Value field… the TFS Pirate and TFS Core plugins so I know they’re activated.

    I’m on WP 2.0.4

  11. I want a plugin that piratifies all the emails I get from my boss!

    Did you know that Greenpeace’s global oceans campaign website — Defending Our Oceans — is available in Pirate Speak (take a look: ).

  17. Thanos says:

    It’s not enough to just talk like a pirate — “arrrr matey, let’s jump inna barrel we’ll do ‘er ‘urricane style” and all that. If you are really living the moment right you will also practice your Pirate Face at multiple times during the day.
