I recently noticed on one of my sites that wordpress posts from a particular category were appearing in the site’s rss feed. That category was only meant for people who had the specific url. Not secure, I know, but we weren’t too worried if the urls got passed around. However, we didn’t want them in […]
I came across an issue the other day and resolved it with the help of my friend Adrian Pavone. I couldn’t find an answer anywhere, so I figured I’d give it here for the next person who wants to do it. There’s two cool wordpress plugins, WP YouTube and Youtube Thumbnailer that I wanted to […]
I did a brand new wordpress setup for a client and when I went to the permalinks settings it was blank. No options to change the permalink structure from the awful default settings. I found out a fix for it and thought I’d share it with you. The file that should display is /wp-admin/options-permalink.php, but […]

It’s time to update my list of wordpress plugins. Some that used to work don’t and there are some that have been superceded by much better plugins. I’ve just done a complete wipe of the site and SQL for a number of reasons, which I’ll explain in another post. So now’s a great time to […]

Going noFollow free in the comments raises several issues, the chief of which is spam. That ugly thing where low-life types try to take advantage of […]
Further to my previous post, where I said I’d look into how to “nofollow” links from the WordPress Photo Dropper Plugin… Open the file wp-content/plugins/photo_dropper/flikr-js.php. Scroll down to the code that looks like: var licenceHTML = ‘<br /><small><a href=”‘+license_url+’” title=”‘+license_url+’” target=”_blank”><img src=”‘+wppd_dir+’images/cc.png” alt=”Creative Commons License” border=”0″ width=”16″ height=”16″ align=”absmiddle” /></a> <a href=”http://www.photodropper.com/photos/” target=”_blank”>photo</a> credit: <a […]
I’m always on the lookout for plugins that will benefit my wordpress blogs. I noticed recently that I don’t have much color on this blog and wanted to spice it up. I found Photo Dropper, which allows you to easily search for and add creative commons licensed photos. At the time of writing, I am […]
