The landscape of news has changed so much over the last few years that news about a particular topic or platform is readily available to anyone within an instant. With WordPress, I imagine that could be one of the perks of powering over 16% of the web, but it’s true that news is becoming incredibly accessible. In short, news is everywhere. Speaking of WordPress in general, you can of course acquire official direct news from WordPress News, but you can also┬átake a peak behind the curtain and follow news in the making at┬áMake WordPress.org. Though it’s only specific to the WordPress.com blogging platform, WordPress.com News is also worth watching for WordPress development news, as WordPress.com users often get access to new WordPress features before they’re released, so you’ll be able to try new features rather than just read about them. There’s more news than just direct official news, like I […]

Darnell Clayton of BloggingPro has published his list of questions you should have answered before you spend your hard earned cash on a plugin. While most of his questions are good ones, I’d say one of the most important is the aspect of support after you pay. Some commercial plugin providers have switched from unlimited support for the lifetime of the product to yearly subscriptions. For example, a plugin may cost $50.00 for the initial purchase which includes a year of support and upgrades but after the first year, you can opt to pay $25.00 for support or only the upgrades. So far, I’ve had great success with the money I’ve spent on commercial plugins but thoroughly do your research before you spend anything.

How many times has the auto save feature in WordPress saved your butt? By default, WordPress auto saves posts every 60 seconds. Paul Maloney of WPZine.com has a snippet of code that you can add to your WPConfig file to decrease that time to increase peace of mind. If you don’t want to use the auto save feature, think about increasing the time to a week instead of disabling it completely. While reading about this tip by Paul, I started to wonder if Post Revisions were tied to auto saves because if they were, decreasing the auto save time would substantially increase the number of post revisions which in turn, would substantially increase the size of the database over time. After performing some simple tests, I discovered that auto saves are NOT tied to Post Revisions. Unlike Post Revisions, there is only one auto save that is continuously over written. […]

Miriam Schwab of WPGarage.com has a neat little tip that explains how to install WordPress without using a domain name. The trick involves editing the Hosts file on a Windows machine to specify a domain name for the server address the site is hosted on. Mike Little who published a comment on the article made note that it’s not a Windows only trick but can also be performed on Linux/Unix and Mac OSX. This trick enables the previous site to stay online until the last minute where a simple DNS change will switch to the new site.

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.

Do you have a WordPress blog? Do you want to add voice search to your blog? Well, thanks to Otto the Tech Ninja, you can with just a slight modification to your theme!
