NASA, the US┬áNational Aeronautics and Space Administration, has started to churn out quite a few open source projects. Though this doesn’t have any impact on the blogsphere (yet), it’s exciting to see a government agency of this level working in an open source environment, effectively asking its citizens for help with projects, while simultaneously making some outstanding code available for anyone to use. As an added bonus, the new code site is powered by WordPress.

The guys and gals at Automattic have published their Google Summer Of Code 2008 Codex Article which highlights various mentors and ideas. For those of you who don’t know what the Google Summer Of Code Project is all about, here is a brief intro. Google Summer of Code (GSoC) is a program that offers student developers stipends to write code for various open source projects. Google will be working with a several open source, free software, and technology-related groups to identify and fund several projects over a three month period. Historically, the program has brought together over 1,500 students with over 130 open source projects to create millions of lines of code. The program, which kicked off in 2005, is now in its fourth year. If are feeling nostalgic or are interested in learning more about the projects we have worked with in the past, check out the 2006 and […]

Integrate Drupal with WordPress: These two competing platforms now have a common bond. This Drupal module will allow you to run/administer a WordPress blog from inside Drupal as a module. The author claims that the module is tested with Drupal 5 and WordPress 2.2.1. In looking through the code, I see no reason why it would not work with 2.3 but I have not tested it. So if you are a Drupal user with a WordPress blog or if you are a WordPress user with a Drupal installation, this is your chance to run the roost from one perch. Features include a single level sign on and synchronization of profile data between WordPress and Drupal.

Code, HOW-TO, WordPress

If you post code on your WordPress blog, you could use a code beautifier plugin such as syntax highlighter or you could include your code in <pre> tags. They preserve line breaks, multiple blanks, tabs between words and other formatting commonly used in code. However, in some cases, if body of your blog is narrow(er) or your line of code is really long, it will not wrap and will overflow over your sidebar. You can just hide the overflow but that still will look tacky and not very usable. On performing a little search, I discovered that Tyler Longren had already come up with a clever hack to solve the problem. If you add the following code to your stylesheet, it will wrap the long lines of code. pre { white-space: pre-wrap; /* css-3 */ white-space: -moz-pre-wrap !important; /* Mozilla, since 1999 */ white-space: -pre-wrap; /* Opera 4-6 */ white-space: […]

[EDIT] Thanks for the catch, the date was wrong. Links remain same, but the date changed. 10 Rules for your Small Business Website: Having worked for a small business for some time and with WordPress being such a widely used tool for building small business websites, I think most of these are well thought out and make a lot of sense. My ex-employers website violates almost every rule mentioned. Spotback provides you with a small script to embed on your posts to provide centralized and socialized ranking for almost anything. Visitors will also receive personalized referrals and recommendations from your site or blog. No WordPress plugin available but I am sure the plugin programmers out there can whip something up quite easily with the WordPress hooks available. Perils of Problogging ia points out the Perils of “Problogging” and when I was notified of the entry, I almost felt like I […]
