knowners plugin download

 

This new version works directly on POSTS and the network visualization is built automatically using tags.

As with the other versions, follow these steps to install the plugin:

  1. unzip the archive in your wordpress plugin folder (you should obtain a “knowners” directoty containing a bunch of files)
  2. go to your WordPress dashboard, to the section “Plugins”
  3. identify the “knowners” plugin in the list and click “Activate”
  4. insert the PHP command knowners_render_posts() in your templates wherever you wish to display your POST-based visualization
  5. insert the PHP command knowners_render_links() in your templates wherever you wish to display your LINKS-based visualization
  6. you’re set!

remember that the plugin is designed to occupy a large area: displaying it in a small div or other HTML container might not come out too nice.

The plugin automatically fills all the container it has been placed into.

We are building a new version of the plugin specifically designed for education practices. The reference model for this implementation will be based on Ivan Ilich’s 4 levels of education web:

  • reference to education assets
  • skill exchange
  • peer-matching
  • reference to educators

this approach will allow building a multiuser environment in which to enact education practices by stratifying webs of information and knowledge.

In this way a WordPress website will be able to host such an education environment, and be able to connect and integrate with other such webs on other websites.

Check often for updates on these issues, and feel free to contact xdxd.vs.xdxd@gmail.com for futher info and test versions of the software.

    that’s a nice plugin – it’s fun to hack too ! simple enough – I am playing around with it on my site ponnuki.net

    It’s on the link setting but is the post version relying on the tag or category ? it doesn’t seems to create anyting logical in my case -

  2. I am really loving the theme/design of your site. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog readers have complained about my blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?|
