WordPress for IOS 2.6, finally video

Just released version 2.6 for IOS Apple's mobile operating system. In this new version the novelty highlighted is the possibility of uploading videos in our posts and that these are published on the site, whether we upload the video from the iPhone / iPad library or make a video instantly to upload it. In addition, other improvements have been applied, such as the management of the drafts, already with self-preservation, until now not very stable.

Private messaging in WordPress

It is clear in advance that I am totally against the use of private messaging in blogs and if you hurry me too in forums , but I understand that there are many people who want to offer this type of service to their readers with what – notice – part of the conversation that is encouraged in the blog is lost. I said!

Well, having made the statement of complaint on my part here I leave a few systems to offer private messaging in WordPress something you do not expect from a server, if you want to say something to you have the comments 😉

User Messages – Great plugin that, despite having stopped its development, is a very complete messaging system among users from the pages of your site.

PM for WordPress – Simple but effective internal messaging system between users

WP private messages – Very similar to the previous one, allows messaging from subscribers to the administrator.

Cartpauj PM – Unlike the previous two, and similar to the first, this plugin offers a messaging system from the visible part of your site, not from the desktop.

Semi-private comments – Est e is a different system, what it offers is to mark certain comments as "semi-private", so that only you and the administrator (this always, of course) can see certain comments.

If you do not like these, you can also use PHPfreeChat which, in addition to chat functionality, offers private messaging.

And, of course, you can offer this kind of functionality with the mother of all plugins, BuddyPress which offer natively private messaging between users, as part of their social network system.

NOTICE : this publication is from two years ago or more. If it's a code or a plugin it might not work in the latest versions of WordPress, and if it's a news story it might be obsolete. Then do not say we have not warned you.

Windows Live Spaces is now WordPress.com • WordPress Help

Bomba informativa! ( thanks Luis ), perhaps one of the biggest and most important news in the WordPress world since it exists. As of now the Microsoft Live Spaces blogging platform will be WordPress.com .

This means, neither more nor less, that any user of Live accounts (millions) if he decides to have a blog will do it in WordPress.com with what the potential of WordPress increases in many integers, exponentially. And no, do not be afraid of Microsoft, because you remember that WordPress is GPL nothing to fear that joke that I raised the day of the innocent that Microsoft bought WordPress this is very different.

For users of Live accounts that do not have a blog, when they are offered in their account, they will create a blog on WordPress.com.

More things? There will be a new option to share your entries in your WordPress.com blog in Messenger, and more to come.

This is a boost from the bestial WordPress platform as there has been no other, and symptom that is the CMS with more potential and Microsoft has realized and has bet for it, to a huge level . The only thing I hope is that the security and privacy policies applied are those of Automattic, not those of Live, in what has sinned, and a lot.

Remove WordPress error messages • WordPress Help

But we still need to prevent WordPress from reporting other types of errors, which are also great tips for possible intruders. To achieve this we just have to add one more line to the configuration file ( wp-config.php ), just before where it says that " That's it, …! ":

Ea, that's it! And we continue to ours, knowing that WordPress will not inform intruders of anything. If, at any time, you want me to show you errors – for example in an update – simply remove that line momentarily.

Check the status of Automattic services • WordPress Help

Automattic increasingly offers integrated services, some of which – some more than others – have been incorporated into our sites.

I'm talking about Akismet, the same WordPress.com, Polldaddy, Gravatar or Intense Debate, among others. And, so you always have a way to check if everything is perfect, there is a site that you can visit and check the availability of the service, problems you have had and the latest news.

Backing up of Twitter in WordPress

Twitter is one of the emerging social media that offers more possibilities every day, the number of users who use it is still limited little by little it is showing its virtues to more and more users.

Now, Twitter has some shortcomings that its users "forgive", perhaps because we are still few who use it (but grows by steps gigantic) or because most of us do not use it for vital matters either. Another case, of course, is that of the marketing agencies that use Twitter as a communication tool and attract traffic and interest in their promotional campaigns, hence the problems of Twitter if they are a major problem.

Twitter has already had several serious security problems despite the youth of the service and the system crashes are almost mockery on the part of users, as if it were another Windows, to which we all consent errors.

On the other hand, if you use it, it can become a great communication tool, where you share your life to some extent. This is reason enough to consider some way of doing backup of Twitter and what better to do with WordPress?

For this I know nothing better than Tweet Archiver , a plugin that, once installed, imports all your tweets (with the Twitter limitation of 3,200) and, from now on, you can program it to continue importing at regular intervals that you define yourself, and that's it there are no limits. Whether you use it in your current blog (something I think would be redundant) or in a new installation of WordPress, dedicated to this function, it's a fantastic way to have all your tweets handy because …

  • offers a simple way, which you already know well, to look in your tweets
  • You do not have the limitation of Twitter of not being able to review beyond 3,200 tweets (it does not save that lack if you already had more before making the first import but not you will lose none more)
  • You can, for greater security, make backup of this installation of WordPress at any time
  • Twitter user names with link
  • Hashtags linked
  • Hashtags as tags

Need more reasons to mount a backup of your Twitter with Tweet Archiver ?, you're already taking. I have already installed it in my backup of Twitter and it is a joy.

Unlimited search results

Normally the internal system of WordPress search only shows the results restricting itself to the structure of the "loop". But if you want unlimited search results without this restriction, you just have to make this little change …

2. You replace the existing code with this one:

The number ' -1 ' indicates that the results are unlimited but, if you wish, you can put any number to decide your extension of those results. As always, you decide.
