WPTEX: Turn you wordpress blog into a pdf ebook using LaTeX Now I wrote my Masters Thesis in Microsoft Word and I would rather pull my hair out one at a time than do that again. However, I bring that up because I jealously watched as the other cohorts of my MS class put together their thesis with LaTeX with relative ease and perfect formatting. WPTeX will let you publish your blog as a PDF eBook using LaTeX and includes a lot of very cool features such as auto indexing and TOC generation. It is released under the GPL I will have to show this to my blogging dad who will love to have an eBook made out of his blog on research of health and wellness!

LinkyLoo, WordPress Security

Matt Cutts has published an article which highlights three different ways to secure your WordPress installation. The first tip involves locking down your Admin directory. Matt configures his .hatccess file so that only his IP address is allowed to access the WP-Admin directory. For the second tip, you should create a blank index.html file to place into your wp-content/plugins directory. Not doing so allows your plugin folder to be wide open, giving nosy people an idea as to what plugins you have installed. Matt’s third and final tip involves subscribing to the official WordPress development blog – http://wordpress.org/development/feed/ As we should all know by now, this is the best way to stay up to date. Matt also offers a bonus tip where he suggest removing the line of code within your header.php file that publishes your WordPress version. All of these are excellent tips. But what do you do to […]

CoverItlive.com is a free (for now) service that allows you to live blog events and publish items directly to any publishing platform. Now this is pretty commonplace and can easily be done with WordPress (and a few extra plugins) but CoverItLive makes it easier and quicker to embed a variety of media and interact with your readers in real time. There is also an instant replay function, which as inane as that might be, might become handy at some point. Now I barely ever liveblog anything, but I can see a lot of use for this at conferences. Have you liveblogged anything before?

HOW-TO, WordPress FAQs

Welcome to part two of a two part series of articles that will guide you through the process of installing a fresh copy of WordPress or your public WordPress blog to your local machine. The first part of this series covered the installation and configuration of WampServer. Now it’s time to move on to the hard, technical stuff. Installing WordPress Fresh: One thing you must know before we move on is that, by default, your database username is ‘root‘ and the default password is blank. In other words, there is no password assigned to the username of root. This would be extremely insecure if this web server were made available to the public but because it’s assigned to the local address of your machine, you have nothing to worry about. To begin, left click on the WampServer icon and select PHPMyAdmin. Where the text labeled CREATE NEW DATABASE is located, […]

[EDIT] Please be mindful of the fact that this is a cursory glance at unfinished work on the WordPress admin interace and nothing else. Please read Matt’s comment.
