WP plugin: META Relationship Links
Another WordPress plugin I had sitting around doing nothing. Might as well release it, and make it look like I’m busy on the blog…
The META Relationship Links plugin inserts a START, FIRST and LAST rel(ationship) link tag in the head of your blog pages. On individual posts it also adds tags for PREV(ious) and NEXT. START represents the home page of your blog, while FIRST and LAST are the first and last posts. PREV and NEXT are obvious (hopefully).
To install, follow these very complex instructions to the letter: download the zip file and extract meta-relationship-links.php from it, upload this to your wp-content/plugins/ directory, and activate META Relationship Links under Plugins in WordPress. If your theme already calls the
wp_head() plugin hook from the
<head> of you pages, the plugin works automatically. If not, I recommend adding this on its own line before the closing
</head> tag, typically located in the header.php template of a theme:
<?php wp_head(); ?>
That should be it.
