Lampshade Plugin

The “lampshade plugin” for DokuWiki is an add-on for the CMS that offers website managers and users the Unlimited POWER!!! to generate lots'o'traffic from their sites by linking stuff to the website infamously known as “TV Tropes”.

TV Tropes” is a website where people who would otherwise spend their time doing things economically profitable for society, dedicate themselves to analyze and catalogue patterns reocurring in media. I doing so, they generate a network of links so complex that once you get in, you'll have no choice but to open tab after tab, letting out a “cool, I had never realized that!” at every corner. You will be absorbed by their Instrumentality by Analysis of Media FOR SCIENCE!1).

Download and Install

Use the download link above to install this plugin.

Usage

Just use the usual interwiki syntax to link to TV Tropes using one of their “wiki words” (ie, camelcased words like DokuWikiIsGreat). If you have no interwiki shortcut enabled, the plugin assigns to itself the shortcut “tvtropes”. Original, huh?

This link leads to the [[tvtropes>LOLCats|page about cat-related image macros]] in TVTropes.

As with normal interwiki links, things like icons2) and the target configuration take place. Smart, uh?

Warning

:!: TV TROPES IS A FAIRLY ADDICTIVE WEBSITE!!! DON'T TELL [your users] I DIDN'T WARN YOU!
