This plugin retroactively places the rel=”nofollow” tag on all links to Shoemoney.com – you don’t have to modify any links manually, and it is easy to switch off should you feel in the future that the site no longer contains offensive material.
Lorelle has posted a great introduction to Ultimate Tag Warrior. She covers almost all the basics on what makes UTW my favorite plugin.
She has also been reporting on feed stats. Now whilst I don’t want to be accused at looking at her “details” again, if you add her WordPress.com subscribers to her Feedburner subscribers then her total is approximately 2500 subscribers. I am sure she also gains a lot more readers through various other interfaces on WordPress.com who don’t use a feed reader.
Lots of people are aware that there was a problem over the weekend with co-author requests being sent out, and some forced adding as authors to communities.
It was a long weekend in the US, but it seems the MyBlogLog team have already fixed it, rolled back any changes, and hopefully it won’t happen again.
WordPress by default, just like other blogging platforms, has automatically been adding the “nofollow” microformat extension to all links from user generated content such as comments and trackbacks. To support the growing rejection of NoFollow for blog comments, I have compiled this list of plugins that help you remove nofollow from your blog forever.
Digg has introduced some new buttons and here is how to use them with WordPress.
It’s smart enough to detect whether your link is a Digg permalink or a URL and whether or not the content exists on Digg already. If it exists, you’ll get the familiar yellow Digg box with a real-time Digg count to suggest visitors Digg your story. If the story doesn’t exist yet on Digg, the first person to click on the Digg It link will be walked through the submission process.
I just picked up a very useful tip on Dougal Campbells blog that I thought I should note down for posterity, especially with so many people planning to upgrade to WordPress 2.1 in the near future.
Chris Pearson has just written a dynamite post on how to use custom CSS with a WordPress theme.
It is especially important if you tweak your themes a lot, and the theme designer is highly active in upgrading themes with new features, and also helps if you tend to switch themes for various custom elements. A lot of plugins for instance ask you to add some CSS to your main CSS file, because they don’t inject it into your header automatically.
Recently I wrote about how you can customise some of the elements in your RSS feed for correct display.
I just found out about another alternative for those comfortable with CSS called Feed Styler. It allows you to apply CSS to various page elements automatically, effectively using 2 style sheets, one for your blog pages, and another for your feeds.
It achieves this by automatically adding inline CSS styling to various page elements.
