Adding Dublin Core metadata to WordPress posts

October 1st, 2006

WordPress does not have a built-in mechanism for automatically adding standardized metadata to pages. Today I wrote a plugin to add Dublin Core metadata to all posts and pages. It currently supports the following metadata:

  • Site name as DC.publisher
  • Site URL as DC.publisher.url
  • Post title as DC.title
  • Permalink as DC.identifier
  • Date created as DC.date.created

Install it by downloading the latest version from the DC 4 WP page (version 0.2 at this time), unpacking the .zip archive, and dropping the .php file into your WordPress installation's wp-content/plugins folder.

This is my first plugin, so any and all constructive feedback would be greatly appreciated!
