Hey

Been reading about this bitcoin thing for a while and I want to make my contribution to the community. I am writing a (very simple) wordpress plugin for taking bitcoin donations and I have hit a technical problem that I can't get my head around.

Are there any decent coders out there who would like to give me a hand? It's a javascript/flash/php issue but it is probably not very complicated.

cheers

Not sure what type of problem you are running into, but here's another implementation of a wordpress shopping cart plugin.

  It is open source.

I've seen the wp-ecommerce work and it is impressive but not relevant to me.

Basically I wanted to make a plugin that provides a widget for the wordpress sidebar which says something like 'if you like this site please consider making a bitcoin donation' (or whatever custom message), has the site owner's bitcoin address, and has a link with something like 'what is bitcoin?'. The bitcoin addresses are really long and don't fit well on the page so I am trying to use the copy-to-clipboard functionality of zeroclipboard so that the user can hit a button to copy the address directly to the clipboard.

Everything else works fine, just can't get this copy-to-clipboard functionality working. I have posted on SO and the wordpress forums and been on the wordpress IRC numerous times. This shouldn't be that hard but I haven't managed to get anyone interested enough to have a look at it.

I could easily have written this statically on my page but I did a search on the wordpress plugin database and found nothing like it; and though that it would help spread the word about bitcoin.

ps. am I missing something? how the hell do you subsribe to a topic on this forum ?!??

cmon people!

I thought the bitcoin 'scene' was full of tech experts. Is it just bunch of dodgy speculators?

You don't say what the problem is, only that it is not working, so I'll have a guess.

Your plugin will need to load the ZeroClipboard javascript file.
You will also have to set the correct path to ZeroClipboard.swf

Are you sure that you are linking to these properly.

If these files are both in the same folder as your plugin then I would suggest you reference them along the lines of:

Code:
<?php

$plugin_url 
WP_PLUGIN_URL.'/'.str_replace(basename__FILE__),"",plugin_basename(__FILE__));  

$zero_clipboard_js $plugin_url 'ZeroClipboard.js';
$zero_clipboard_swf $plugin_url 'ZeroClipboard.swf';

?>



If your plugin is loading everything correctly then your problem is likely with Zero Clipboard, not Wordpress, so maybe find a forum related to that instead.

Maybe will help, maybe not  Smiley

Post in it  Grin

Seriously, as of right now it's the only way, we're working on that.

I like the idea and hope you get it figured out.

I can help with the development of these requests.  PM (or email) me with your issues and I will see what I can do.  First come, first serve as I am busy developing other bitcoin applications in my freetime.

advice to OP.. put up a small bounty for this.. 1-3 btc

I don't know wordpress specifically; but this should be like 2 lines of javascript and 3 lines of html.  If no one answers by the time I go home from work I'll write the code tonight.
