Spotify in WordPress • WordPress Help

I believe that, after introducing limitations of time and songs to the free version, the online music listening service Spotify has lost some steam.

What can not be denied is that is a fantastic service to listen, discover and, above all, share music … also in WordPress .

And as Spotify uses WordPress what less than also share our music on our website made with WordPress do not you think?

To enjoy many of the virtues of Spotify in WordPress we will use some plugins and tricks that will make life easier, let's see them …

And even Here, I think I have covered all the options, but if you know any more, you tell us. Enjoy it and the music with us.

WordPress infinite, under your control • WordPress Help

I have already spoken previously of ManageWP a integrated manager of WordPress sites but this system It suffered from a problem for some, the fact that it is a service that you have to use in an external server, you can not install it where you want.

Well, we already have an option, this time if can be hosted in your own server .

I'm talking about InfiniteWP a downloadable software which is not a WordPress plugin, from which you can manage so many WordPress installations as you like .

In addition, it is a free software which, in its current basic initial version allows the following:

  • Remote access with only one login
  • Backups and restorations Automatic
  • WordPress Updates, Plugins and themes with a single click
  • Activation in batch of plugins and themes
  • Installation in batch of plugins and themes
  • Organization of your WordPress sites in groups, for a simpler management

As you can see, ] you have some of the ManageWP premium settings for free in this case, which makes it a very good option.

Now, there are other tools that are not free and you do not know the price yet , namely …

  • Google Analytics Integrated Management
  • Cloning and WordPress installation
  • Centralized management of entries and comments
  • Batch creation of entries, pages and links
  • Programmable backups
  • ] Centralized editor
  • Backups to Amazon S3 or Dropbox
  • Integrated user management

Again, there are tools that are already available in ManageWP, at a reasonable price, which in this case will not be able to Enjoy it until they are available.

In any case it is a very good option to try it at least, because the installation is very simple . You only need to download the latest version upload it to the folder you want from your own server and access the chosen path, the installation process will begin, just like what happens with WordPress.

In this process only you will be asked for the information of the database (you need one) where the " idem " of InfiniteWP will be stored. It's fast and easy, as you can see in this video:

The server requirements to host it, which are checked in the installation process, are PHP 5.2.4 or higher with CURL and MySQL support version 5.0.2 or higher.

Then, once installed, it's really easy to create groups and start adding sites . For this you also have here a video that explains it, although the system is quite intuitive:

And finally, another video with a review of everything that InfiniteWP offers ]the one that I have tried and, despite being in the first version, works more than well despite the – perhaps – few initial functionalities.

Or, if you prefer, here you have a tour to see how it works, plus some captures of what you find once installed and running.

WordPress guide for the perfect idiot

I think the name of the book published by Susan Gunelius and you can find on Amazon "The complete idiot's WordPress guide", that is, the WordPress guide for the perfect idiot, a very smart and eye-catching headline, hence I like it.

Actually it comes to be a WordPress guide for clumsy (or dummies if you prefer) that is actually very well, explaining everything very simple, even what is a blog, with icons that identify each section of the book, to make it even easier.

For $ 16.5 in print or $ 18.99 for Kindle (never understand that they charge more for digital editions) you can have it, with some very cool and explanatory illustrations, 464 pages with the basics of blogging and WordPress, that if, totally in English.
