Episode 40 of WordPress Weekly discussed a wide range of topics from the release of WordPress MU 2.7 to the All In One SEO Plugin reaching one million downloads. Also sad to say that this was Keith Murray’s last episode as co-host. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors. Special Announcement: Kym Huynh co-host of the WordPress centric podcast, WordCast was in a terrible car accident. Kym was in the middle of a three week vacation celebrating his recent graduation from law school when he ended up in a bad car accident. Unfortunately, Kym suffered quite a few broken bones and now has a metal arm. Dave Moyer of DaveMoyer.org, producer of show published an email he received from Kym earlier today that can be read on the DaveMoyer.org website. I personally wish Kym a fast and speedy recovery.

Joining me this week on WordPress Weekly was Douglas Bell who operates Webmacster87.info as well as hosts the PHPBBWeekly podcast. In this episode, David and I chatted about a number of subjects including: WordPress User Interface History BBPress PHPBB3 The possibilities of the WordPress team working with PHPBB to develope a bridge between the two Security of PHPBB3 and WordPress And a whole lot more. While PHPBB and WordPress are two different pieces of open source software serving different needs, I find it interesting to discuss the differences in strategy as well as the similarities between the two. Plugin Of The Week: Maintenance Mode – Adds a splash page to your blog that lets visitors know your blog is down for maintenance.

I flew solo for episode 35 while Keith cranked out some college work. In this episode, I interviewed Mark E. who is just about ready to release the first beta of his comprehensive WordPress Security plugin called Maximum Security. During our discussion, it was easy to see that this plugin contains just about everything except the kitchen sink as it relates to security and WordPress. If you don’t believe me, view the long list of features this plugin has with more on the way. We also discussed security through obscurity, basic WordPress security practices and much more. Mark has 15 years of experience in network and system security and within this episode, he gave us about 4 years worth of experience in less than an hour! Plugin Of The Week:Comment Luv – Comments are a wonderful thing to receive on your blog and while adding the dofollow plugin is one […]

First off, BuddyPress is looking real good these days. Secondly, I’d like to thank Andy Peatling, head honcho for the BuddyPress project for stopping by and lending us an hour of his time to explain exactly what BuddyPress is and does. On December 15th, 2008 Andy released the first beta version of the project. So what exactly is BuddyPress? BuddyPress is essentially a set of WordPress MU specific plugins. Each plugin component adds a distinct feature to BuddyPress and only handles functionality for that specific component (for example, private messaging). BuddyPress also has a core plugin that all other plugins require, it contains shared functions and performs the basic modifications to the WordPress MU interface. Tune into the show to hear Andy delve into the feature set of the project as well as taking questions from the audience. By the way, if you don’t have the ability to install WordPress […]

Episode 33 Kenn Bell of TheDogFiles.com as well as Jason Schuller who is one half of the Revolution 2 project. This was a great combination of guests as Kenn initially created the design for TheDogFiles site while Jason applied his code ninja skills to make the design a reality. Here are a couple of bullet points of discussion from this episode: Brief discussion of WordPress 2.7 Why WordPress was chosen as the publishing platform of choice The design and implementation of TheDogFiles website The Revolution 2 project Last but not least, since Jason is a prominent theme designer in the WordPress community, I took the opportunity to have a small discussion with him regarding the removal of 200 themes from the WordPress repository.

As you can probably tell from the title, this episode features quite a bit of discussion surrounding WordPress 2.7. Not to worry though as there are plenty of other things that Keith and I discuss such as our favorite feature in WordPress 2.7 Beta 1, the WordPress showcase, whether or not Drupal can beat WordPress, and near the end of the show, Anthony Cole called in and gave us the 411 on WordCamp Australia which is taking place on November 29th and November 30th.
