There is a conference in London called The Future of Web Apps. It takes place October 3rd – 5th. There are lots of speakers and Matt is one. So, seeing as he’s here, want to meet up? The venue will be Excel London. They have bars we can use, their site lists travel links and if there are others at the conference they would be close by. Date will be October 4th, maybe October 5th too. Interested? (cross-posted from my blog because more people read this! I’ll followup any other details on my post there.)

There is now documentation you can download, read offline and print ! Over at http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/docs are listed over 240 complete pages (a total of ~34meg of information) taken verbatim from Codex. You can download just those sections you need – and none that you do not. Before you start downloading or commenting though, please take a moment to read the information I’ve put together here: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/T2/codex-and-pdf/ It should address what I think will be common questions. Once Codex is back, the management and direction of this project will be taken to there with additional input from the WordPress Docs mailing list.

Shadow at www.os42.com is organising and hosting the inaugural Organic Shadow Site Content Awards (OSSCAS). As noted on the site, the focus here is not what a WordPress site actually looks like, but what the content is. After all, not only is it a site’s content that keeps us coming back, but it’s also the constant in this time of many themes. There is a varied panel of judges, and anyone can nominate any WordPress blog in one or more of the categories. Why not go take a look, nominate a blog you like and take in some of the quality reading on offer ? Content is Everything – The OSSCAS

Link Cosmos and rel=”nofollow”

4
responses

If you are using the Technorati Link Cosmos using PHP then links that this tag generates will be counted by Search engines as being valid – which they may well be. But if a spammer sets up a blog, and links to you, you will be counted as providing a valid link. You might not want that to happen. The altered script can be grabbed here: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/downloads/cosmos.phps It won’t remove the link and it’s not ideal as you are tarring all links with the same brush, but it will make the spammers link useless for pagerank purposes.

WP: Archive by Date

2
responses

Mark produced Sortable Nicer Archives for WordPress but sometimes people don’t want the sortable part – a list will do. So due to a request in the WP forums, I’ve taken out the code that gets in the way for that, and made it just list by date. Can be seen working here in the latest WP build: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/T2/willitwork.php Download file: http://www.tamba2.org.uk/downloads/date_archive1point3.phps Download file (for 1.2 versions) http://www.tamba2.org.uk/downloads/date_archive1point2.phps Credit: Mark Any mistakes: Me

Nicer Archives for WP1.3

4
responses

Some months ago, Mark created the Sortable Nicer Archives for WP 1.2 In WP 1.3, the main page has been split into different sections, so the original file above didn’t look good – it worked of course, but the page layout was broken. Using includes for the header and footer, along with a <div> correction, that is now sorted. It can be seen working here: www.tamba2.org.uk/T2/narchives.php The phps file is here: www.tamba2.org.uk/downloads/narchives2.phps Note: this has not been tested against Themes.

An example of the default CSS with WordPress

8
responses

For some reason, many think that in order to style a WordPress weblog, you need to know PHP. You don’t. Or people are confused by CSS and end up using html and tables to create effects that can otherwise be achieved just by using the default tags that are in a WordPress install. So in that vein, I created a default WP weblog, and altered nothing except the layout css. It’s not meant to show off any design skills, or to get any awards for ‘best use of colour’, but hopefully it will let you see just how much control you have already without the need to alter anything else. It is basic stuff – another blog with more advanced techniques soon I hope – but if you have a have a WordPress weblog, hopefully it will start to inspire you when looking to alter your design in some way.
