QR code WordPress plugin

Synopsis

Generates and adds QR code images to your WordPress 2.0 blog posts.

Description

WP-QRcode is a highly configurable plugin that generates QR codes for your blog posts and lets you show them in specific places in your WordPress website. The purpose is for mobile phone users to have easy access to your posts by capturing the QR code by the phone’s camera and then go straightly to your post from the phone’s web browser. (Someone may probably choose to use it just for the coolness factor.)

  • You can control what to include in the QR code, including the post’s URL (permalink), title and/or time.
  • Several parameters of the QR code can be adjusted, such as the version, size and error correction level.

  2. had a bit of a problem with my private blog while my professional/techy blog was working fine. turns out that wp_qrcode.php::get_qrcode_img_link() (but also its brother get_qrcode_img_popup_link()) was not including the site URL in the generated URL for the QR code image. if you change

    $url = get_option(“qrcode_image_path”) . ‘/’ . $id . ‘.png';

    to

    $url = get_option(‘home’) . get_option(“qrcode_image_path”) . ‘/’ . $id . ‘.png';

    in both functions it’ll work just fine.
