Kblog Metadata Plugin
The Kblog-metadata provides tools for exposing and editing the bibliographic metadata of academic posts. This plugin enables other software to extract who, what and when information from a blog and its posts, as well as providing widgets to display this information to the reader.
It is often useful to embed bibliographic metadata, describing the author(s), title and publication date into a web page. There are a variety of different ways of doing this, described in a variety of different specifications and/or standards. These vary widely in their formality, uptake and age, as well as clarity with which the specification is written.
The practical upshot of this is that automatic capture of metadata which enables tools such as Greycite (http://greycite.knowledgeblog.org) and various bibliographic software to work is a somewhat ad hoc affair. Sometimes it works, sometimes it does not. Rather than requiring users to add a separate plugin for each of these specifications, kblog-metadata takes the approach of adding metadata in as many formats as possible, in the hope that, for any tool, at least one will work.
