FeedForAll tweaking

Monday, January 26th, 2009

I really have enjoyed using FeedForAll as a nice, customizable way to insert ANY RSS feed into a web page. I use it with some of my wordpress sites to get relevant news (relevant to the page in question) published without the toil of multiple daily updates. It’s a nice “set it and forget it” [...]

Global Translator not Working after WordPress 2.7 Update

Friday, December 12th, 2008

I’ve just updated my WordPress install on 2 sites up to the new release version 2.7 which is now two days old or so. I quickly took a look at the sites and saw that the global translator plugin wasn’t working. (It was giving 404 errors, or…. “nothing found for es” for example.) After a [...]

WordPress Fancy Permalinks not working Giving 404 error

Monday, August 25th, 2008

I spent the better part of a Friday night sorting this out. I had just launched 4 new wordpress blogs that were secondary installs on each server.

Universal Translator Plugin for WordPress

Monday, July 28th, 2008

I’ve started using a “universal translator” plugin for wordpress across most of my sites lately. In the past I’ve seen many people using google or bablefish translation to view pages (according to the logs.)

As you know I’ve used wordpress as a platform for many of my sites.

I’ve started adding the Share This plugin to several of my sites and was frustrated on one site to see on the front page “SHARETHIS.addEntry(” and a lot more ugly text. Upon investigation the < script tag enclosing the SHARETHIS javascript. So, I went on an investigation. I looked in the share this forums and [...]

There are a lot of good things to like about the newer versions of wordpress. It seems to keep getting better. One of the really cool plugins is the WordPress.com stats plugin.

Monday, March 31st, 2008

I’ve started the process of upgrading several websites to the newest release of WordPress and one of the things that became possible was installing bbpress.

There are a couple new software packages in wordpress’ family: MuPress which is a multiuser (and multi-site) wordpress archicture… is available. IF that had been available a year ago, I might have based my sites on it, because it sounds as though you could have one backend for several sites. I may yet play around [...]
