The prestigious newspaper The New York Times together with Automattic, have created a plugin aimed at collaborative editing in WordPress, which is essential for an online newspaper, so that it adapts as much as possible to the ways of working in a newsroom. This development has been called ICE ( I ntegrated C ontent E editor).
That I could find is not yet available in the official repository of WordPress plugins but it is available for download, because it is free and open code, on github in addition to the latest version of WordPress and the editor TinyMCE, as the perfect pack for the online editor.
With ICE, the changes made by the different users are shown in strikethrough or marked with color. Any user can press a button to accept or reject a particular change or all of them. It is a more sophisticated system than the "follow-up" of WordPress, which shows the previous version of a story but does not highlight the specific changes. And while WordPress shows the revisions on another screen, with ICE the changes are displayed in the same text editing window.
For the Times, ICE means that journalists will no longer have to choose between writing to the CCI, the CMS of the printed newspaper, and Scoop, your Web CMS. Regardless of whether you are writing a blog or an article, now they will use the same text editor.
One more bet to make WordPress the CMS par excellence, this time with the New York Times.
When I explained how to improve the bouce rate in WordPress I left a list of 10 methods to do it, but I kept one more mode, quite simple all said in passing, to do it.
I'm referring to cutting long entries into several pages adding paging to our more extensive publications. In this way we increase the permanence in the site and bounce of visits between internal links, which will improve our SEO .
Also, doing it is very simple, although not obvious because we do not have an icon in the editor to cut entries in several pages, at least by default but it is easy, and a lot.
To do this you just have to add the following code in the specific place where you want to "cut" your entry, and you can do it as many times as you want:
When you publish, and if your subject supports it (almost everyone does) your entry will be cut in the chosen place, offering access to the following pages through numbered links, as many as pages (cuts) have your entrance.
And what do I do if you fear me do not do the "cuts" ?. There are few but there are. Some topics do not include the necessary code to cut the entries in several pages. If so, you just have to add the following code to the ' loop ' of the file
single.php of your active topic:
You save the changes and the page will be displayed.
If you are curious, and you want to know which version of WordPress is the most popular, there is a page specialized in WordPress.org that shows you in a graphic which of the versions of WordPress to date is the most popular.
Of course, even with the growing popularity of WordPress, right now the most popular branch, with over 51% of the global downloads is the 3.x version. Did you doubt?
As a curiosity (or not), we are also offered graphics of the most popular PHP and MySQL installed versions, in which they gain 5.2 PHP and 5.1 MySQL.
The new WordPress admin bar is displayed by default for all registered users but if you want to be displayed only by the administrators of your WordPress you just have to add a small code.
open the file
functions.php of your active theme, or modify your function plugin and add the following piece of code:
You save the changes and you already have it.
Our friends from Mecus have published in the official repository a plugin, Post thumbnails in feed which allows to display the image thumbnails (featured images) in the RSS of a WordPress .
The configuration is simple, you just have to choose the size to show thumbnail (or less), as we did with the code how to put images highlighted in the feed .
Now you can do it by hand or with plugin.
By default, WordPress displays a row of icons to format your texts in the visual input editor. And I guess you already know that by clicking on the last icon, that of the colored squares, a second row appears in which you also have the following icons:
Well, what you may not know is that there is a third row of icons that you can make visible …
To see it you just have to add this code to your file
functions.php or almost better to your Feature Plugin ]:
This new row will be seen even if you have not displayed the first one, it will always be visible.
Do you want even more? because you can install the plugin TinyMCE Advanced that adds those icons and many more (at will and customizable), replacing the standard WordPress editor with a more "full" version.
