Hackadelic TOC Boxes work in the sidebar as well. Out of the box. You can see a live demo on my blog by going to a post’s single view: The TOC box appears at the top of the left sidebar.1 This post here is a good example.

- At least it’s at the top at time of this writing. I may move it in the future to another place, or remove it all together. [↩]
Widget Voodoo morphs sidebar widgets into stylishly collapsible objects. The new release goes one step further in “stylishness” and adds support to variable styling of widget titles depending on the collapsed/expanded state of the widget.
A live example is right here on my blog – look for the “Archives” widget in my left sidebar.
Have fun! And a happy Easter to everybody!
TOC boxes are designed to be freely positioned in posts using a short code.
Recently, I’ve been approached with a request for instructions on an interesting use-case: Positioning a TOC box together with an image.
Here’s how I’d do it.

The new Widget Voodoo release, 1.0.3, fixes a small (but annoying) misbehavior with the Tag Cloud widget.
I am releasing a new version of TOC Boxes. It fixes two subtle but annoying bugs.
This post discusses the possibilities to easily implement a tab-style navigation bar, like the one found on the plugin pages at wordpress.org. It’s a very basic tutorial most suitable for beginners. Folks experienced in HTML and CSS will find little new here.
In cases when it is used regularly, a tab bar would be implemented by a plugin. But when it’s usage is more an exception than a rule, it may make no sense to descend into hacking. Some really simple HTML and CSS will perfectly do.
Somewhere between its version 0.4 and my WordPress update to 2.7, the Insights plugin stopped working for me. At least, it stopped working on my hosted blog. But it still worked on my local test server.
And when I say “It stopped working”, I really mean it. No matter what search mode I selected, be it “Images”, or “Videos”, or anything, it always showed me search results from my blog only.
Weird stuff indeed…

Finally I got around to finish this new major release of my TOC Boxes plugin, with a bunch of long wanted new features.
Actually, there are so many new features and improvements, that I decided it deserved to fast-forward to version number 1.5. Hence the “unofficial” name of the release: Warp 3.
Overall, the plugin now provides a bunch of settings, partly related to existing, partly to new features.
I implemented a slight variation of the WordPress built-in recent comments widget that only shows comments from people other than me, so that it’s in conjunction with my “I wrote” / “You wrote” sidebar titles. It’s already in place here on my blog.
The current implementation is very specific to my site, and would need further work to make it generally usable – work that I’d be ready to invest if there’s enough public interest.
Drop me a note if you think this widget would be useful to you, and you would like to see it download-ready on wordpress.org.
