JetPack adds related entries – WordPress Help

It seems that JetPack is committed to being the only plugin you may need for almost any WordPress installation, and today you have introduced a new module, in version 2.9, that all or almost all of us use, the related entries .

And the truth is that it is very complete, more than many plugins out there, these are its virtues:

What's up, it works relatively well personally I prefer Related Posts by Zemanta because it allows to customize the appearance and edit the related entries and it's faster, but you have to recognize that the module Related entries of JetPack is fast to load and minimalist in appearance, which will fit most designs .

The main drawback, logically, is the absence of customization possibilities and improvements in the selection of related entries , because it is not always correct with the most related. In any case I encourage you to try it, bad option is not.

Plugin with almost everything essential for WordPress

 man orchestra

I do not usually be very close to the megaplugins the " all in one ", but there are occasions, and above all, uses and users for whom this type of software offers a good amount of blow utilities is a good principle to consider.

I am more to choose what works well for each web and use, but if you want a plugin with a lot of utilities and functions for which you would need to install dozens of plugins and add lots of code, WP Essentials can be a good fix.

The cast of everything that this megaplugin offers is huge, namely …

'Cleanup' function:

  • Establishes friendly permanent links (yes you have not already defined them)
  • Remove useless widgets from the Desktop

    • Relative time function to show dates and times to your liking (for example: 5 minutes ago )

    In addition, the plugin also exists in premium mode incorporating many more improvements and possibilities.

    What do you think?

    Well it's fine, incorporates utilities and functions, if they are what you need , would require the installation of dozens of plugins or add a lot of functions but honestly I find this type of plugins nonsense because in the end you end up installing functions that you do not need and the load for t u web ends up being bigger than if you install the plugins exactly or add the functions you really need.

    What this plugin does is unify a huge amount of functions which you can add at your own will, in a single application.

    In addition, that my list of functionalities would have been very different from the one offered because, for example, some are redundant with utilities already incorporated by WordPress . I'm not saying that many of the incorporated ones are not interesting but there are many that are too specific and not of general use, which could be substituted by others that would delight any blogger, for example, or make several editions: blogger edition, developer edition, marketeer edition, etc.

    I think is better than doing your own functions plugin and so you really incorporate what you really need for each project, but cool is, and there are functions that you can extract and add to your own plugin.

Show all available image sizes

If you are fond of photography, you will probably use the service of Flickr where you can easily upload your photos and other people visualize them in presentation mode or by image size. Also, it is possible, that you use WordPress to show your best photos in a blog or personal portfolio which always positions better in the search engines.

If this is your case surely you will miss some Features of Flickr in WordPress and one of the most obvious is power show the visitor all available sizes of the image .

As you already know, and if we do not remember, when you upload an image WordPress stores several versions of it. The object of this is to offer you several sizes to insert in your entries, and that you do not have to resize by HTML thus reducing the page load. Of course, you can always link a smaller size to the full image size, or another, from the WordPress image loader.

Then, this is shown on the attachments page, usually managed by WordPress themes using a file usually called attachment.php or image.php . What happens is that, generally, only the linked image will be shown, without giving you more options. Let's fix it …

The first thing you have to do is open the file functions.php and add the following:

We save and that's it, now when someone clicks on an attachment you will have the possibility to view all the sizes of the image.
