Like MDN? Run a WordPress site? Promote MDN!

Promote MDNDo you like MDN and run a WordPress site? We made a WordPress Plugin to Promote MDN. You can install it thru your WordPress admin dashboard.

It is based on WordPress developer extraordinaire freediver‘s SEO Smart Links plugin. Promote MDN automatically links keywords and phrases on your site to MDN – including past content! The keywords and phrases are determined by a special Promote-MDN page on the MDN wiki. It comes with reasonable defaults so it should Just Work right out of the box, but you can configure many features:

  • Set exceptions – Include or exclude links in headers or RSS feeds; Prevent linking certain phrases or on certain pages.
  • Set limits – Link in moderation. Only link as many keywords as you want as many times as you want.
  • Add your own keywords – We’ll maintain a good list; make it even better with your own favorite keywords and url’s.

It’s initially available in English, Deutsch, Español, Nederlands, Polski, Português (do Brasil). You can help us translate it on the MDN Verbatim site.

We’d love to hear your feedback on the dev-mdn mailing list or in #mdndev on IRC. And the code is wp-promote-mdn on github if you want to send us bug reports and suggestions, or of course – pull requests! :)
