One of the best features of the Textpattern CMS is its simple and lightweight core; however, as a result you’ll more than likely find yourself needing to install some plugins to get it working as you want. There are many plugins out there, but I want to share a few that in my opinion are essential to any Textpattern build.
arc_vimeo v1.1 has been released for Textpattern. This version contains a couple of bug fixes. Most importantly it now allows you to use both http and https URLs for the video.
A new version of arc_meta for Textpattern has been released. Version 1.2.0 adds support for section category meta titles.
A new version of arc_redirect for Textpattern is now available.
arc_redirect v1.2.0 now allows you to use absolute URLs for the redirects, setup temporary redirect rules and comes with a number of security fixes and general improvements.
I’ve updated a couple of my Textpattern plugins today to add support for Google Analytics UTM parameters. You can now enable UTM parameters on both “arc_twitter (TXP Tweet)”/txp/arc_twitter and arc_social_share.
My arc_meta Textpattern plugin has been updated with new tags for meta robots and keywords.
A couple of new Textpattern plugins are ready for release today: the new arc_vimeo (for embedding Vimeo videos) and the all new version 2.0.2 of arc_youtube (for embedding Youtube videos). Both have been designed to play nicely with each other using new conditional tags.
Better late than never, I’ve finally updated arc_redirect for Textpattern 4.5+. This plugin lets you define redirects for URLs that generate a 404 page on your Textpattern site from the admin pages. This updated version upgrades the interface to fit better wuth the current look of Textpattern. There’s also a minor bug fix in there.
