Bloggers are Dangerous: I followed a chain of posts to the Innovation Creators blog to finally find the original author of the picture below. The linked article actually talks about how bloggers are perceived to be dangerous by various companies and their executives and Rod investigates the social and technological implications of blogging on the Enterprise. If you are into that sort of thing, it might be an interesting read. However, the picture of the various blog gang signs interested me the most. Afterthought: I wish more people credited the original author instead of linking to the last place they found an article of interest, especially when there is a CC license involved. Post name via oneplusinfinity On completely unrelated news, I found a WordPress Theme Design Book by Tessa Blakeley Silver that might be of interest to theme designers. Looks like the book is also available as an eBook. […]

Not too long ago, a new plugin was released called WP-Crontrol. WP-Crontrol allows you to take control over what is happening in the WP-Cron system. WP-Cron is a tangle of black magic that allows a plugin developer or a user to schedule commands to be executed. WP-Crontrol is a plugin that lets a blog owner see through that magic and figure out what’s actually going on If you want a detailed introduction to this plugin as well as an explanation as to how to use this plugin in conjunction with WP Database Backup to create backups when you want them, be sure to check out this article: Add a new WordPress backup schedule with WP-Crontrol Also on the radar today is a quick fix for the WordPress 2.5.x image uploader.

99 designs is an interesting site. It fills a niche that I have carefully treaded in the past and have received negative feedback for (rightfully so). 99 Designs allows you to crowdsource your design needs. If an organization or an individual seeks a new design, they hold a “contest” of sorts using the tools built into 99 Designs and offer up some money for their project. Designers are then allowed to post entries for these and the contest holder is allowed to pick and choose the best design(s) and distribute the money based on the winning design. In the past designers have turned up their nose on design contests for a variety of reasons, most of which I agree with. However, the surprising thing about 99 Designs is the popularity of the site and the sheer number of designs that have been submitted for existing contest. Some of the work […]

Although there were over 80 security/bug fixes in WordPress 2.5.1, there was one thing that crept up immediately following the release. According to numerous reports by individuals and a ticket filed in the WordPress Trac when a user resets their password, the password reset link received in the email does not work. The error message that is received looks like this “Sorry, that key does not appear to be valid.” This bug has already been fixed and will be included in WordPress 2.5.2. However, if you are having issues with the reset link right now, you can read this post by Ryan McCue on how to Reset your WP Password Manually through phpMyAdmin. [EDIT] Ryan has included the files which contain the patch that you can download here

I have always wanted to ask this question from my readers since I believe that the answer would help me provide more ways receive the information that is posted on this blog (and help WordPress users). Since I came across this cool app for Facebook that allows you to attach polls to your Facebook pages, I added it to the weblogtoolscollection.com Facebook fan page. With that in mind, where do you read weblogtoolscollection.com? The poll embed code is not behaving. If you want to vote, please visit the facebook fan page, click on “View polls for weblogtoolscollection.com” and vote there. I should have used a better polling plugin like the one from GamerZ. When I get the polls plugin installed, I will update the post with the right information. Till then, please leave a comment. Thank you for being patient and I apologize for the confusion!
