All this month of April, the folks at Weblog Tools Collection will be taking up a single plugin every day and reviewing it in detail. The purpose is to highlight some of the outstanding (for various reasons) plugins available today as well as provide a means for the WordPress community to tell the authors what they actually want. The series began on Monday and you can expect six posts a week (Sunday is the weekly off).
The WordPress Blog announced the release of the official Plugin Directory. Currently the primary place I use to look for plugins is WP-Plugins.net.
Are you fed up off dull boring feeds in your feed reader? If you've styled your blog with CSS (and you should), you will notice that none of these styles show up in any feed reader. Most feed readers default to same color text with minor styling.
WordPress 2.1 released about ten days back. Many hesitated to upgrade and others still haven't.
I still haven't upgraded this blog to WordPress 2.1 because of a potential problem with Ultimate Tag Warrior on WordPress 2.1.
I'm a big fan of Mark Jaquith. He has several useful and easy to use WordPress plugins to his credit. One such plugin is Clutter Free.
There are two things that every site would love, viz. visitors and return visitors, the latter preferably and participaters. While the commenting system within WordPress allows participation to some extent, it does lack a lot of features, one particularly being the ability for visitors to receive updates on their comments.
I had written about the code generated by SpringWidgets not being XHTML compliant. For users of WordPress I have made available of a plugin that will save you the trouble of figuring out the valid code. Simply download, install and activate the SpringWidgets plugin.
I have just updated my Open Picture Window Plugin for WordPress. The only update is the much requested Quick Tags button. The plugin still doesn't have a button for the WYSIWYG editor.
This site has been down for the better half of yesterday. I first thought it to be a problem with my hosting when I realized that I was able to browse the admin area of the blog, while the main site remained offline :( I even tried Alertra.com to check if it was a problem with my internet or something more severe.
