Upgrade your WordPress to 2.3.3!

WordPress just released a critical upgrade, 2.3.3, and you should really update now. The flaw that was found is the solution to a burning question I’ve had for a few times lately: how the **** are people editing posts on one of my blogs. (More specifically, css3.info, which is being syndicated at w3.org, and has…

Sociable WordPress plugin take-over

Several people have noticed, most notably Andy Beard, that the Sociable WordPress plugin is, next to be being a cool plugin, kind of a dead project. I had modified it quite a bit for Mel’s blog, and my own later on, to include Sphinn, Facebook, Mixx, Google Bookmarks, Live and Twitter (the latter inspired by…

Speed up WordPress, and clean it up too!

Every once in a while people will ask me to fix their blog, because it’s either slow, or broken. When it’s not something to do with their WordPress hosting, (some hosts are just plain bad and slow), most of the time this is caused by either broken plugins, or broken themes. There are a few…

Update to users to CSV plugin

I’ve just updated my plugin to export all your blog’s users, or even all your commenters, to a CSV file. The plugin now exports the first name, last name and nickname into the CSV as well, and leaves out some of the stuff it would previously export too, like password hashes. This plugin, aptly named…

Update to Robots Meta plugin

I’ve fixed a few bugs in the Robots Meta plugin which might have caused the disabling of certain pages not to work, due to the fact that I was a sloppy in whether certain variables were in scope or not. Also certain stuff was deprecated or it’s functionality has changed within WordPress since the inception…

Make the scrapers work for you!

Some of you had already noticed that I’ve added a link back to my blog in the footer of articles in my RSS feed, like this: I didn’t do that because I thought you guys couldn’t find my blog. It was actually a plugin requested by Shoemoney, who wanted to make the scrapers work for…

WordPress Google Analytics 2.3: XHTML strict

After all the ASP and XHTML strict validation issues with Google Analytics, Google updated the default generated script code. I’ve now updated the Google Analytics for WordPress plugin to version 2.3, which uses this new code. You should really upgrade! Next to that: I’d like to hear from you on which new features you’d like…

I need your votes!

So, my dear, dear readers, my Robots Meta plugin has been nominated as “Best SEO plugin for WordPress” in the Search Engine Journal Search Blog Awards 2007. And to win that competition, I will need your votes!!! To do so, I will start a “mini” competition of my own: from everybody who tracks back to…

My 2007 business highlights

I was tagged by Eduard Blacquière, to write a post about my business highlights for the last year. I’ll use a broad angle, talking about my work at Onetomarket, my blogs joostdevalk.nl and css3.info, and my web design company AlthA, as all are somehow interlinked.

Google Analytics plugin updated!

I’ve just updated my Google Analytics WordPress plugin to version 2.2, it “forces” you to switch to the new tracking code. Image tracking and AdSense tracking should still work. It requires the code to be in the head, as outbound link tracking will still not work correctly otherwise. Before you install it, delete the old…
