What’s Right with WordPress 2.3

Thu, 27 Sep 2007 00:10:07 +0000

So WordPress 2.3 is out, and the release announcement is exciting to read. First off, in 2.3, WordPress gives us real Tags. Tags are not categories. I was really disappointed when started confusing categories for tags, and wrote about why Tags are not Categories. WordPress has finally come clean, and seen the light, and explained [...]

Figure Out What Runs a Site

Tue, 14 Aug 2007 04:33:19 +0000 is a service that tells you what runs a site, the statistics packages used, the blogging software used in case the site is a blog, whether the site uses RSS, Javascript, the works. I found BuiltWith via Mashable, one of my occasional reads. Interestingly, also provides the percentage of profiles sites that use [...]

MovableType: 3 Years Too Late?

Wed, 06 Jun 2007 15:43:28 +0000

Movable Type is going open source. Yup. MovableType 4 Beta has been announced and the plans are to make it a fully GPL-ed, open source product. The announcement says: …we wanted to explain why we’ve made this massive investment in Movable Type and its community. The truth is, Movable Type is how Six Apart got started, [...]

Plugin to Restore Preview Post in Write Post Form

Wed, 23 May 2007 22:05:37 +0000

There are at least two people in the world who definitely will appreciate the plugins I mention in this post, and that, I think is reason enough to write here. Prior to WordPress 2.1 here was a neat little “Preview” link to the Top Right of the Write Post form. Clicking on that took you [...]

WordPress 2.2 “Getz” Security Upgrade

Thu, 17 May 2007 22:13:08 +0000

I had written in the post describing 2.2’s arrival that there was no mention, and it wasn’t clear from the WordPress bug tracker whether 2.2 included any security updates. The recently married Mark has left us a comment saying WordPress 2.2 Getz includes some security fixes. As with all upgrades that include security fixes, [...]

Go Get Getz – WordPress 2.2 Arrives

Wed, 16 May 2007 06:09:54 +0000

WordPress 2.2 codenamed “Getz” has been released. Read the official announcement for details. This is all part of the new experiment to release often, and release regularly. Finally Matt’s 2005 resolution seems to be kicking in Widgets in the core, that annoying bug where marking comments as spam in the admin page causes the number [...]

Supplemental Results and WordPress

Mon, 14 May 2007 11:46:47 +0000

I happened upon a curious trick to find out all your pages listed as “supplemental results” in google, and some other associated supplemental result tricks. A lot of you might already know these tricks, but I think reading the rest of this article might get you thinking about these supplemental results in a new way. [...]

Displaying HTML Source Code in Your Blog Posts

Sun, 13 May 2007 18:16:13 +0000

I badly wanted to display the following html code in a blog post that I am drafting: “” I tried putting the raw line of html between “code” tags and then even “pre” tags, but it just wouldn’t show up. Turns out you need to encode the html entities, like the [...]

Can’t Find My Glasses (…but they are on your nose)

Fri, 11 May 2007 05:34:39 +0000

I sure can’t be the first to notice this. If you go to a feed url, say and then click on the Google Reader Subscribe Bookmraklet, the poor thing can’t find the feed! What do you mean you can’t find it? You’re at it! I am talking about the authentic Google “Subscribe as you surf” bookmarklet which [...]

WPZipper is one of those websites which I have thought of doing myself but never really got around to… Alright, well there is very little we all haven’t thought of and gone, “that would be so nifty!”. What WPZipper does is pull your blog’s zipper to close shut. Take 2: It is a service that provides [...]

Back in Action…

Wed, 02 May 2007 17:56:54 +0000

First off – sorry for the really, really old posts from this blog that are all over the WordPress Planet. I (finally) upgraded this blog to the latest and greatest WordPress from version 1.5.x-beta. Yeah, you heard me right. So here’s a quick recap for all interested. I am carthik, and I used to very active [...]

Stellingwerf on WordPress

Thu, 08 Sep 2005 19:44:13 +0000

Richard Stellingwerf, author of the ClearLooks GTK+ 2.x Theme Engine is using WordPress to power his blog. Here’s what he had to say about the installation: Well I decided it was time for a proper website. Since it would be mostly a weblog, I decided to try this thing called Wordpress. As with anything in Gentoo, [...]

Yet another WP MU site

Tue, 06 Sep 2005 11:47:16 +0000 has an interesting name, if nothing else, to it’s credit. Oh, and it is a service that provides users with a free hosted WordPress (WP-MU) blog. So many hosted services now – you have no excuse not to try WordPress out, if you haven’t already

Frontal View of Matt’s Stuff

Fri, 26 Aug 2005 03:40:54 +0000

Yes, the Matt in question is our good old photomatt. The title shocked me. Matt seems pretty excited about his new stuff.

In the News, indeed

Tue, 23 Aug 2005 00:37:34 +0000

There was time when I knew most of the active WordPress blogs out there, by url. Then there was a time, not so long ago, when searching for WordPress in Google News would yield nothing, though I expected it to show up something, when I thought WordPress had “matured”. The system has come of age, and [...]

So WordPress now has a reputation of being “User Friendly”. Cool.

State of

Mon, 22 Aug 2005 13:57:53 +0000 is a new venture aimed at bringing blogging to the millions. For starters, it will grow in a very linear fashion, since each invitee (yes, you need an invite) can only invite one other person. Powered by WordPress Mu, and much like Blogsome, promises to be interesting. May Matt’s baby steps to ensure [...]
