Love this! Folks at the Greek School Network were inspired by our new CC Search tool to create a WordPress plugin that lets you find and use CC-licensed images directly in WordPress https://t.co/zcdr7ZjweH
Poster presentation: Cutting Edge Collaborative eLearning Services: The Case of the Greek School Network, by Konstantinos Kyritsis, me and Theodoros Pegiazis at IISA 2019.
Konstantinos, presenting the poster about two of the Computer-Supported Collaborative Learning (CSCL) services provided by the Greek School Network (GSN) to the Greek Schools’ community. Application of collaborative learning in blogs.sch.gr and schoolpress.sch.gr and how teachers can use them in their classrooms.
Inspired by the new CC Search tool https://search.creativecommons.org/ I decided to try and make a WordPress plugin based on it. The goal was to have an image search functionality from CC licensed images into the post editor.
After the plugin’s activation, you can see the “Image via CCSearch” button above the editor and as option into the “Add Media” pop-up window. By pressing it you can search using Latin characters for an image, browse the returned images, preview an image and its license and adjuct the image settings:
use of thumbnail or original image,
set the image link (if any).
Insert the image into the post or as featured image.
You can try the plugin and let me know what you think of it.
Just updated the BP Group Documents plugin, which creates a page within each BuddyPress group to upload and any type of file or document. This allows members of BuddyPress groups to upload and store files and documents that are relevant to the group.
Version 1.12.3 update contains the following bug fixes:
The plugin adds oEmbed support in WordPress posts, pages and custom post types for videos, presentations etc from the https://video.sch.gr, mmpres.sch.gr sites of Greek Schools Network.
There are no settings. Simply, add the URL in your content editor.
Just paste the given “Απευθείας σύνδεσμος” link from the “Κοινοποίηση” section of a video from video.sch.gr into the content area and it will by transformed to oEmbed into your post, page or custom post type.
The SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle is one of my favorite plugins, not only because it has a bundle of widgets, but also because it is very extendable and allows other developers to customize and add more features to each widget. Moreover the guys of Siteorigin also provide a guide on how to extend the plugin (see https://siteorigin.com/docs/widgets-bundle/)
Recently I wanted to use the slider of the SiteOrigin Widgets Bundle but I also wanted to be able to hide a frame or two – not deleted, which is the default option if you don’t want to display them anymore. Hiding and not deleting frames is a useful feature when you have frames for special occasions and don’t want to recreate them each time you need them.
The only thing needed is a checkbox “Hide this frame” into the frame’s tab, which then should be “be respected” by the rendering function of the slider, so the specific frame won’t be displayed.
So the addition of this extra functionality in the SiteOrigin slider turn out to be very easy.
All you have to do is to add the following code into your theme’s functions.php file
