Mentions of Twitter in WordPress comments • WordPress Help

 twitter wordpress

I do not know if you'll remember that a long time ago there were a number of plugins that allowed to show next to WordPress comments The mentions on Twitter to your entries .

Unfortunately most of them stopped working overnight.

Guilty ?, Well curiously the same Twitter then acquired the service that allowed this virguería, called Backtype and the functionality stopped being available.

It is true that there are several options to show the tweets that talk about your tickets how Disqus, which has this possibility, but if you do not use this type of substitution services for native WordPress comments it seemed that there were no options.

And if there is, I have at least found a couple of them.

] On the one hand there is a p Very recent lugin, called, very appropriately, Twitter mentions in posts which does exactly what I say: show the tweets that speak of your post at the end of the comments .

Its operation is very simple, because you just have to activate it and every hour shows the tweets of the recent entries although for older articles it may take a few days to show them all.

Also, if you do not like the default site where they appear, or want to show them in some particular place, you can add this code in the place where you want them to appear :

Another plugin that also adds us this utility is Mentions as comments

Directory of plugins almost perfect

 rankwp "width =" 500 "height =" 387 "class =" aligncenter size-medium wp-image-68387 "srcset =" https : // 500w, 1024w, https : // 1061w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a></p>
<p> Just released <strong> ] <a href = "https: // A <strong><a href= WordPress plugin directory has just come to light, with a search engine included, really interesting which improves the functionalities of the official repository in many ways. from "target =" _ blank "> plugin directory WordPress, with search engine included, really interesting, that comes to improve the functionalities of the official repository of in many places.

The directory, without spirit of profit, check all the plugins that are that we have in the official repository of and shows them in their own environment, but with some extra features like these:

  • Check the plugins every day to update the database.
  • It offers listings sorted by popularity, developers, trends, most updated and the best
  • You can install any plugin in your site from the same directory, which will open a new window of your WordPress desktop, in the page of installing plugins and with the search made which you want to install.
  • It offers codes to show your love for each plugin in a widget of your WordPress
  • Main view with graph of plugin popularity statistics, based on the stars of but showing the evolution, something very interesting This ranking is reviewed every week.
  • List of related articles from the entire web where something has been published about each plugin.
  • Search of plugins by subject
  • The captures of each plugin are shown in a newspaper

] Everything you have in RankWP .

Certainly the design is not what I like most about the site, mostly because of the colors chosen, but is much more visual than the official repository and , above, offers extra features .

There are parts that are less complete than on the official website, how the description, or that there is no page with the installation information and change log, but you offer a link to the page of each plugin if you need it. A lack for my unacceptable taste is the compatibility information with the latest WordPress version.

If I find the related links section great. I do not know the criteria, and it should be improved, but it is very useful to know what others think about the plugin before installing it.

And, of course, something that should already incorporate the official repository is the installer like the one with RankWP simple to add and very practical. The same for the graph of evolution of popularity, it is worth a plugin have many stars but from when?

In any case is a new option, and very nice, for to know and install plugins in WordPress .

Insert Javascript in WordPress

 javascript "src =" " width = "500" height = "375" srcset = " 500w, uploads / 2013/02 / javascript.jpg 900w "sizes =" (max-width: 500px) 100vw, 500px "/> </a></p>
<p> The other day was <span class= a forum user asked how to insert Javascript in WordPress and the truth is that it is not so obvious how it might seem, but it is easy to do it.

Without specifying if it was for a hosted on your own server or on, would initially have two possible answers namely …

  1. You can not insert Javascript into sites due to a default security limitation, so if it's your case forget it, do not you can insert Javascrip t in neither in entrances neither in widgets of text nor in any other part.
  2. If you have your own WordPress the thing changes, there you have total freedom to insert, to add, to install what you want

Another clarification that must be done is that in this article does not explain how to add a Javascript code in the code of a WordPress theme because it is something so simple how to copy and paste it. A typical example would be the Google Analytics code.

Nor is it about how to insert an external script such as the YouTube videos, a Facebook fan box and others, which already offer a code with the " call " to the external Javascript needed to show the video or whatever. Here you already know, you go to the Text tab (HTML) of the editor and paste the script that is offered to you.

What is involved here is how to insert your own Javascript in an entry or page in WordPress , in the content ok?

… How to insert Javascript in an entry or WordPress page …

For an occasional or one-time use of Javascript you have to put the script in a JavaScript file and then " call it "from within the entry or page. That's right, make sure that each script is defined by its function name for example:

To include the JavaScript within the entry or page you have, then, that combine the call to the script with the call to the same JavaScript . That is, something like this:

If the attribute src of your Javascript tag is cut or truncated you will have to disable the Visual WordPress editor completely or be careful not to switch to the visual editor tab, because Sometimes it happens and it will not work.

Another very interesting and simple option is to add Javascript using a shortcode, like the one offered by the embed javascript . Simply, when you want to insert a Javascript in an entry or page you do it like this:

… Insert JavaScript in widgets …

Here we are not going to complicate, apart from directly inserting the code provided by the service that offers the content, we have the wonderful plugin HTML Javascript adder that does all the work.

This little wonder allows to insert HTML, javascripts, shortcodes, ads, flash codes, plain text and almost anything you can think of ] in a sidebar using UNLIMITED widgets that you can display in entries or pages, to choose.

… Insert JavaScript in WordPress with shortcode …

Another way, that I personally liked it a lot, of insert JavaScript in WordPress altern first, create a shortcode using a custom field.

First you create a new custom field that you call, for example " js " , and in the field of " Value ", you paste the Javascript code you want, something like this:
 insert javascript wordpress with custom field

Once created you just have to " ] call it "from the editor like this:
 shortcode insert javascript in wordpress

The effect achieved will be the same as putting it" to capon "but with the advantage that you can also use it in the Visual tab of the WordPress editor something quite interesting by itself.

And that's it, if you know any other way you tell us in the comments. [19659005] References:

Create a blogroll without follow-up ("nofollow")

 blogroll "src =" "width =" 250 "height =" 250 "srcset =" 250w, /blogroll-150x150.jpg 150w "sizes =" (max-width: 250px) 100vw, 250px "/> </a> In an article published a few days ago in this wonderful blog, <a href= Fernando told us possibility of including the tag rel = "nofollow" for all the outgoing links that we had in our blog.

The truth is that doing this supposes giving many clues to the google robots, to indicate that what we are really doing with our blog is pure SEO and very possibly penalize us with the consequent decrease in the positioning ranking of our website, which is why I at least, I do not know revo to use this option so drastically .

As far as I could read on the web, it is not very clear how the use of the label affects the positioning of a web page rel = "nofollow" within the links of our web pages, although what does seem clear, or at least there is consensus, is that there should be a certain balance between inbound and outgoing links on our site web .

And given that the tag rel = "nofollow" indicating to the robots of google that it is a link for people and consequently should not be followed by the search engines we can use it to try to achieve that equity.

Before going any further, I would like to clarify what is a link " nofollow " for it nothing better than a small example.

Suppose we have a page to web a link similar to the one that appears below (actual link that goes my website about cruises ):

Add an attribute rel = "nofollow" means to transform that expression into the next:

It's that easy and simple.

In relation to this topic, I was asked the idea of ​​how to include this attribute in my WordPress blogroll both in the site that I mentioned earlier, and in another that I have on the Organic Law of Data Protection since in these places there are links to ot ros blogs and normally we may be interested to add this condition to them.

To try to get this, I went to the category "links" of the desktop of WordPress and I could not see any option that would allow me to do this . I started surfing the net and I found a code, with which this goal is achieved and I want to share with all of you.

To achieve this possibility, all you have to do is copy and paste the code that follows in the file functions.php of the theme of WordPress that you are driving, or paste it in the file of the plugin of functions option this last one that is the one that I use and I recommend the readers.

In this easy and convenient way, you have added the attribute rel = "nofollow" to all the links that appear in your blogroll . I hope it has helped you and once again, I want to finish the writing of this post, by publicly acknowledging the work of Fernando by showing us every day on this website new and interesting news about WordPress . Until next time, bye.

Start the development of WordPress 3.6 entry reviews • WordPress Help

Once decided that in WordPress 3.6 there will be a new system of revisions of entry, with storage (it seems that optional) in hard disk, the task of creating the interface of the new system has already been launched.

Nice is not (yet) but it seems that everything is going to be very minimalist, very flat and if not take a look at the new icons in the beta testing site for check it

The interface proposes a slider, in the style of the paging system that I use here in WordPress Help, from which to navigate through the different versions of an entry, and what is almost more important, with some identification system of colors to facilitate the visualization, something that the system of revisions sins right now.

Much remains for WordPress 3.6 but it's a breakthrough.

Twenty Thirteen, the new default WordPress theme, nice but a concept error • WordPress Help

 twentythirteen 2013 theme wordpress

Yesterday the one that will be the new default theme of WordPress named with great imagination Twenty Thirteen .

Its virtues are many, and it's even pretty, but from my point of view it's a big misconception.

We'll start with the characteristics of what will be new theme for WordPress defect:

  • Directed to blogging that is, inverse chronological format by default
  • Google Web Fonts specifically Source Sans Bitter . It also uses Genericons for scaled theme icons, which are adapted by CSS to any size.
  • Adaptive ( responsive ), which means it adapts to any mobile device
  • Very oriented to the use of input formats each identified with a different color in the " loop ", which extends to the entire width of the design
  • ] Width of a single column which means that there is no default, although you can add one, sidebars or widgets possible in the "sides" of the theme structure, which are restricted to the foot of the subject.
  • Image of header width and height fixed
  • Distinct file templates by input format
  • The searcher and site title remain fixed when making scroll not the image or a cropped version da sa
  • Bonitos file browsing icons

If you see the demo is certainly nice, and very colorful, but we are going with what I consider a concept error

The default themes of WordPress, how we knew them until now, going through the different versions of K2 and up to Twenty Twelve, offer an adaptable base for personalization of minimalist design that each user adapts to their tastes and needs of structure and content .

However, Twenty Thirteen part of a powerful design, very nice yes, but more closed to the use of children themes ]which would require a lot of code (too much) for an adaptation to other, less "cool" uses, like the one offered to us.

And, of course, we will still have Twenty Twelve as the basis for our projects, but then what's the point? has to put 2013 how to theme by defect in the installation? would not it be better to just offer it like so many others in the repository ?, and make an adaptation of Twenty Twelve to incorporate all the news of the new versions. This is simply what I do not understand.

And in the end we are dragging various themes by default, without a natural evolution. And yes, I understand falling in love with the Tumblr concept of the entry formats, a cry of hope before the domination of social networks, but without forgetting that WordPress must be an open concept , especially in its standard installation.

Some time ago we abandoned the " sanbenito " that WordPress is a smaller platform, for bloggers, and this decision of a default theme specifically oriented to bloggers I think an error, concept .

WordPress should be, increasingly, the base platform for simple and powerful publication and management of different types of content (input formats included), leaving aspects how the design, thematic orientation, the visual and content structure to the user, through plugins and themes, and not try an ideological orientation of where you want to go using WordPress, but rather the user who decides what type of project and use to apply it .

At least it is my opinion, yours still has not …

Regenerate WordPress thumbnails

There are times when, especially when you change the subject or modify the default size of the image thumbnails, you need to regenerate the thumbnails in WordPress . Can you imagine the task that arises if you have hundreds of entries? What's lazy?

Because of course, we've already seen how create thumbnails by default when there are not, but we're talking about regenerating thumbnails when, for example, you change the WordPress theme or modify the default size for the thumbnails where everything is descabala and is ugly, not to create thumbnails by default in normal situations.

Nothing, without worries, install the plugin Regenerate thumbnails , you activate it and you already have half a task done.

A simple way to reduce the size of your WordPress

 image sizes

There are many possible elements that can increase the size, weight and load of a web and WordPress ] does not escape from this danger. In fact, there are default behaviors of our beloved CMS that contribute to overload the size of your website .

One of these default WordPress behaviors that contribute to occupy extra space in your installation is ] the management that makes the images you upload . Let me explain …

Every time you upload an image to illustrate an entry, WordPress automatically creates other sizes smaller than the one you have uploaded. The idea is good, do not believe, because it is based on the fact that you do not need to use in your publication the full size of the images you upload resized by HTML (you know, it is pulling or shrinking the image ) but it is better to use a version that better fits the width of your WordPress theme and in the process you reduce the loading time of your cover (especially).

To give an example; imagine that you have a great holiday photo of about 4,000 pixels that weighs 8 Mb. If you upload it to an entry and publish it as is, even if you reduce the size from the object editor, in reality you will be showing fewer pixels width and height but the image will weigh the same when it is displayed on your website, I remind you, nothing less than 8 Mb .

Now add how long it will take to load the cover of your website if you do the same at each entrance of the ¿10? that you show in it. That's it.

That's why WordPress automatically creates small copies of your images, so you use a size more appropriate to the width of your theme and, consequently, also of less weight in " ] megas ".

The idea is good on that side, but it turns out that, at the same time, too is taking up disk space from your highly-appreciated – and usually expensive – web hosting plan , then you will find 3 or 4 more images, which you do not always use.

And, say, if you never use the average size would not it be better to tell WordPress not to create that copy? or the big size, or whatever you want. I do not recommend removing the miniature size, because if you use the galleries is the one you will use.

Getting it is very simple just go on your WordPress Desktop to the side menu " Settings -> Media "and simply set to" zero "the size or sizes you do not want WordPress to automatically create.

In this example of the capture I have removed all sizes except the thumbnails:
 remove wordpress image sizes

Maybe you'll find it too radical, but if you think about it why are you going to upload the 8 Mb photo? Would not it be better to reduce the pixels before uploading it?

Normally, except in places dedicated to photography, it is never necessary to upload images of more size than the one that will normally show your WordPress theme so will not it be better not to unnecessarily occupy the expensive hosting space?. [19659004] At your home I leave the decision, but you know how to do it, and it's easy.

Notice of pending or draft entries in WordPress • WordPress Help

 hommer automates approval

WordPress has many virtues, but one of them is not that – by default – come prepared for one collaborative environment because it does not have a user management system and publications like the one that requires an environment, for example, where a editorial flow is required .

A few days ago we saw how notify users when their articles have been published but and notify the editor when there are articles pending approval? sure you are with me in that it is a functionality that you miss in any web with several users and different profiles, where a supervision of the entries is required before being published .

Well, let's incorporate it, which is very easy …

… Notices of pending entries through code …

There was an old plugin, now abandoned, that offered notifications to the administrator's email when a draft of an entry was created. The problem is that it warned each time the entry was modified, becoming a nuisance instead of a solution.

A review of the code itself solves the problem …

To do this open your function plugin and add the following code:

works from coke.

 approved rejected

… Notices of pending entries (and more) with plugins …

If you are more of plugins we have multiple and varied options, some of which we have already seen for other uses:

  • Edit Flow : again, this fantastic plugin editorial control also includes notices of pending tickets, review and much more.
  • Revisionary : this plugin makes part of Edit flow of the announcements, with a complete ticket review system, to perfectly manage the editorial flow. [19659168] Status notifier : complete plugin that allows you to notify the administrator, in fact the email that you decide, when there is an entry pending review. You can also (optional) notify the author when your publication is approved, or if it is rejected.

How do you see, for possibilities that do not remain.
