Over the past two years, I’ve had the privilege to talk with a number of different plugin/theme developers. While they each have their own unique style of getting things done, one thing they all have in common is providing support. Michael Torbert author of the All In One SEO Plugin wrote a great blog post published on WPTavern.com providing up to twelve things you can do to help make the support process go as smoothly as possible. You may not agree with what’s on the list and in fact, if you have anything you’d like to add, say so in the comments. Considering the AIO SEO plugin is the most downloaded plugin on the repository, you can bet Michael has had his share of support queries and then some. Before you ask for support, use Google. Make a concerted effort to search for resolutions to your issue. This will help […]

I am sick of splogs Copying our Content!

I sincerely apologize for having turned our RSS feed into summaries. I understand it is annoying and creates an unnecessary step for those who read our content through the news feed. But rarely a day goes by when we do not have five to ten new trackbacks from blogs that are copying our content. I end up adding them to our blacklist and then sending a notice to the infringer. It gets even more annoying when the infringing blog does not have a contact page or I get a reply back stating that they did not know our content was not meant to be copied. I am not against some use of our content but I like to be asked and like proper attribution be provided for displayed content. I understand that duplicate content is bad for SEO but I believe that it is a give and take. Our content […]

Jeff Chandler over at WPTavern.com recently published an interview with Andrew Ozz. Andrew is the man responsible for the integration of TinyMCE into WordPress. He’s also a core committer for the WordPress project. In his interview, Jeff asked a number of questions that I believe are on the minds of many who have used the visual editor. Here is an example: Jeff – TinyMCE is labeled as a WYSIWYG editor. However, in my experience most times what I see is not what I get. For example, I’ll be in the visual editor and block quote a piece of text. But when I press enter to begin a new line, my cursor is stuck within the blockquote tag. This also works for any other styling elements as well. Why is that? I think the WYSIWYG a.k.a. RTE (rich text editor) comes from the early implementation of support for editing in the […]

Are you constantly hunting the WordPress Codex for functions and template tags? I know I spend a lot of time doing this whenever I am working on a new plugin. Andy Stratton too did the same until he created WPLookup. WPLookup will take your query and take you to the corresponding WordPress Codex documentation in the function reference and template tags reference. If your search terms are not found, it will send you directly to a documentation search for your terms. The site is very much in the nascent stages. And, I’m sure there is a lot more that can be added. One suggestion could be that instead of sending the user directly to WordPress Codex, WPLookup can generate a search results page with a link to the codex article as well a link to the function declaration in the WordPress code using PHPXref. The search results page can contain […]
