Isaac Keyet has announced on the WordPress For iOS blog that version 2.6.4 has hit the app store. This version of the app has gone through careful screening especially within the Media Uploader and Post Write/Edit areas. One of the more annoying bugs has been fixed where line breaks would inconsistently be inserted into the code while some line breaks would be removed when editing posts. As for the media uploader, users should now be able to handle multiple file uploads without the app crashing. While a number of other bugs have been squashed, the team is already working on the 2.6.5 update. On the agenda for 2.6.5 is: Priority #1 is always to fix the issues you are reporting, so go ahead and download 2.6.4 and tell us your thoughts! The rare duplication of content bug (some of you have reported that new posts sometimes inherits details from previous […]

In a typical WordPress installation http://yoursite.com/wp-login.php is used to log in to the back-end of the site with the addition of a sub-domain if it’s in use. Personally, I have this link bookmarked so I don’t have to type it in all the time but Chris Coyier of Digging Into WordPress.com has shared a tip to make the log-in URL a bit more pretty. It’s a simple rule added to your .htaccess file. With Chris’s tip applied, the log-in URL will look like http://yoursite.com/login which is much easier to remember than wp-login.php.

HOW-TO, WordPress FAQs

The one thing that most of us WordPress self installers have in common is that we’re using a web host of some kind whether it be shared hosting, VPS, or a dedicated server. Web hosting is one of those industries that has a very low entry barrier thanks to reselling. This enables fly by night shops to open up as a web hosting company only to disappear a few months later. This doesn’t happen in all cases as reselling provides a great opportunity to learn a thing or two but I’ve since lost my trust in resellers. Choosing a web host is probably the most important decision you make as everything rests on their shoulders for your web site to stay online. Without further adieu, here is a list of questions and things to consider when choosing a web host. Note: This mini guide is mainly geared towards shared hosting. […]

The winners of the WPHonors awards have been announced today by WPCandy.com. WPHonors has been compared to the Oscars but for WordPress. The site has a handful of categories ranging from best theme framework to best commercial plugin to best community member. It was neat to see WPTavern as well as Weblog Tools Collection.com added to the finals for voting despite our non attempt at getting votes/nominated. The one thing that did stand out regarding the final votes is that Joost De Valk would have walked away with three categories if it were not for the rule limiting the winner to one category. The winners get bragging rights and the claim to be part of the best of 2010. Congrats to wall who won.

Trend Micro which is an anti-virus company announced their most dangerous list for 2010. Just about everything mentioned in the list has a strong correlation with market share and size which tends to make them more dangerous. This is especially apparent when Trend Micro lists Google as the most dangerous website thanks to its popularity for blackhat-SEO schemes which lead to malware infected sites. However, as for Website Software, Trend Micro labeled WordPress as the riskiest web software used in 2010: The riskiest software used by websites in 2010 was the popular blogging platform WordPress. Tens of thousands of un-patched WordPress blogs were used by cybercriminals for various schemes, primarily as part of redirection chains that led to various malware attacks or other blackhat search engine optimization (SEO)-related schemes. I beg to differ. While WordPress certainly made the headlines this year as webhost after webhost became the target of attacks, […]

While it doesn’t happen often to the point where it’s in the news everyday, WordPress.com has removed a particular blog as it violated their terms of service. On December 30th, 2010 WordPress.com archived/suspended the site bootislam.wordpress.com for the posting of hateful material such as directions on how to properly shoot a Muslim, false bomb threats, and burning mosques. When The Council on American-Islamic Relations found out about the site they called on American Muslims and people of conscience to contact WordPress.com along with them to try and get the site removed. While the site is now offline, CAIR has also submitted the sites content to the FBI for further investigation. I’m happy to see that no one has raised their voices to bring up the issue of freedom of speech because the Terms Of Service of WordPress.com specifically outlines what you can and can not do if you choose to […]

In terms of WordPress stuff, WeblogToolsCollection.com publishes a large amount of content over the course of a year. In this two part series, I’ll be highlighting some of the best content that will not only give you a glimpse of the progress made regarding WordPress but also remind you of some of the more important stories that took place during the year. For me personally, 2010 has been a really tough year both financially and personally. Not only did I lose my future father father-in-law to prostate cancer, but my little endeavor to create a WordPress centric community site that helped me to pay the bills flopped. I’m hoping 2011 is much better than 2010 and for those of you that celebrate it, Happy New Years!.

One of the greatest strengths of WordPress is the widget system. As long as a theme supports sidebars, it can use widgets which can be anything from a Twitter status update area to a static text box. The beauty of the system is that you can move content around without using any extravagant code. Thankfully, themes have really started to embrace the sidebar/widget system in 2010 by providing an ample amount of sidebars and in some cases, the opportunity to create as well as place sidebars where you want them. However, the default widget system in WordPress does not offer granularity out of the box. When a widget is placed within a sidebar, that widget will show up on every post/page that the sidebar is on. I’ve personally been waiting to see WordPress come up with their own system of being able to dictate when and where widgets will show […]
