Have you tried searching for anything out here on Weblog Tools Collection? What about the Heatmap we have at the bottom of the page? If you haven’t searched for anything here yet, let me explain the difference between the search results out here and the results on other WordPress blogs. On other blogs, when you use the inbuilt search, WordPress finds the posts that contain the search term as is and lists them out. Out here, when you conduct a search, the posts which are most relevant to the search term are listed out in order of their relevance. This ensures better search results for your search term. The solution we have here is manual and customized for this blog. So, in order to extend this all WordPress users, I’ve converted the same into a WordPress plugin titled Better Search. When you install Better Search, it will automatically replace the […]

responses

When we launched our Reader Review series, I’m sure we created a few doubts in your mind about: How do I write a review? Will my review be accepted? What if my review gets trashed by readers? Is it really worth the effort? And so on… We published a list of reviews from our readers, so that is a good starting point. I’ll guide you through a few tips on writing a good review. Step 1 – Select the Plugin The first step to starting the review, is well finalizing on which plugin you want to review, then downloading and installing the same on your blog. This could either be a dummy blog dedicated for this purpose or maybe your production blog itself. Do you really need to install it? Well, the answer is obvious. Yes, you need to. Because without getting a hands on experience, you will never be […]

Weekly Plugin Review, WordPress Plugins

We hate spam. We hate it so much that we always find solutions to spam. So, this week we continue our Weekly Plugin Review series with a review of an Akismet alternative called Mollom. Description: This plugin makes it possible to use the anti-spam services provided by Mollom on your own WordPress blog. What is Mollom? It’s a free anti-spam service that was founded by Dries Buytaert (Drupal) and Benjamin Schrauwen. The plugin can be used as a substitute for Akismet, Defensio, Spam Karma and others. What does it do? Mollom works much like Akismet: comments are sent to a central server which uses intelligent, self-learning algorithms to determine wether or not a comment is spam or not. Spam-classification isn’t a binary process and as a result, common anti-spam services perform bad when handling false positives. Mollom takes care of this. If it can’t clearly classify a comment, it will […]
