How to Fuck your WordPress Blog easily

There are many ways to spoil your WordPress blog. In the time I have been with this CMS I have discovered some basic rules that will make your blog the most horrible and slow of the entire network, do not leave any. Sure you will see good samples of these "tricks", but almost never all together, will you?

 internet-deleted "title =" internet-deleted "width =" 406 "height =" 315 "class =" aligncenter size -full wp-image-4053 "/> </a></p>
<p> Are you up for it? </p>
<h3><span id= Activate all the plugins you can

Ultimately the plugins are there to use them, right ?, and WordPress has thousands of them . Then why not use all the ones to have in your blog all the functionalities of the world Do not use a single statistics plugin, use all the ones there are to compare their results, offer several voting methods your posts, make it easier for your readers to share the posts using all the plugins that are available for this purpose, add several translators, all the widgets with functionalities that you can think of and be cool, the code is for geeks, you use WordPress to not complicate and offer the "most complete blog, with more functionalities of two. "

If your theme requires plugins, go through them

. See if you can not install the plugins you want, not the creator of the theme. If something is not seen is your fault, you write a post and you put to birth by assholes and little considered with your tastes. Your mission in this world is to show the errors of those theme developers who insist on adding features that you do not want.

It allows you to publish without restrictions anybody who registers

If the blogosphere is sharing for What to put doors to your blog? . Enable the registration in your blog and define that all users have an administrator profile. So you can see the same as you, do the same as you, erase your blog as you would do, but without having to make that hard decision. Sharing is good, did not you know?

Deletes tables from the database

Do you want to spend a fun afternoon like so many? Well, just throw in your noses and delete tables from the database. It's easy, you just have to go to the panel of your accommodation and try that thing called ' phpmyadmin ' or something like that. Click on the database of your blog in the drop-down menu and delete tables at random, if you do not know what they are for, why leave them there? What's more, if you're one of those who do not panic at all, delete the complete database!

Tune the files 'core'

If one of the benefits of WordPress is that being GPL you can modify it to infinity why do not do it?. Customizing the theme or the plugins does it anyone but what happens with the core files ?. There is a world of emotions waiting for you in the folders ' wp-admin ' and ' wp-includes ', do not miss it, enjoy. Open each file of those folders and delete lines to see what happens, for example.

Copiapega from Word or any other program

If you have spent a lot of money on buying Microsoft Office (or past hours downloading it from the mule) use your applications to write your posts, then copy the text in the WordPress editor and publish it. With the cool and the number of buttons that Word has, why use that light version that WordPress offers ?. The same then strange things are seen in the posts by incompatible or badly closed tags, but that is the fault of Automattic that they have not had the eggs to integrate MS Word in WordPress not yours.

Add code to your themes

If you follow WordPress Help you will know that you can add all kinds of codes to make cool things on your blog, from inserting banners to include all kinds of interesting information. Put them all in your theme and experiment with them. If then the blog is not seen well because, with so much code, you have left some label without closing, then nothing, you cancel your subscription to WordPress Help that you can not follow a blog that offers such bad material and that gives errors.

Change the address of your blog

This is easy. Go to your administration panel, and in the window of General Options you put the domain you want, the one that you could not register because some domainer of the noses went ahead. You'll see what a good time you spend when your blog disappears.

Copiapega from anywhere

Come on, do not even think about using the image loader to occupy space in your accommodation. Are not the images already in the network ?, Because you use them, your copying and driving. In addition, the good time that you will spend with the misplaces of your theme, images that do not load, slowing down the site and images anti-hotlinking . Original as few.

Delete the .htaccess

The file .htaccess is a remnant of the past, something of Apache Indians, nothing to do with modern CMS. It only serves for pijadas like protecting your folders from prying eyes, redirects to permalinks and other nonsense, and above it has a dot in front where has such a bullshit been seen of a file that only has extension? . Delete it and every time you see it you eliminate it again. Let the world see the guts of your server, and if someone does not find a link that looks better, you can not be so clumsy.


Well, I think there are enough "tips", but if you have any more you can share Do it now, we will be happy to follow you to make our blog "different."

How to Detect and Prevent Content Stealing and Hotlinking

It is increasingly common, unfortunately, the theft of content in the network. In many cases come from the Splogs ((False blogs, Blogs that steal content from others with the sole purpose of attracting visitors and get income through advertising)), and when they also perform Hotlinking ((Using the links from the original site, which are also consuming bandwidth from the owner of the content)) becomes a problem to be addressed.

In WordPress Help for a long time we have tried not to put restrictions on the theft of content but try to "educate" whoever we located. But after many unsuccessful communications, in which we received insults in response, we have begun to address this problem and, as is the custom of the house, we will share all the methods to detect and avoid the content theft and hotlinking .

1. How to detect content theft?

Include links to own posts

One of the easiest ways to avoid theft of content, or at least serve you for something and step by reference, is Link yourself in your articles. You can do it in several ways, either manually, linking text of your article to posts related to it or linking keywords to your blog tags using the utility included in the plugin Simple Tags which does it automatically without that you lose time in it.

That if, put the absolute links, of type http://tublog.com/mi-post/ non-relative of the type / mi-post / . You will get trackbacks from your own blog but it will help you to detect who steals your posts and receive visitors from Splog who are looking for original content.

Link your images

A simple method to detect the theft of content is to leave active the option that WordPress has by default that the images link to themselves. This way you will get trackbacks and you will know who is doing hotlinking or complete content theft. By the way, you also get external links to your site, even if it's to the images. Of course, you can also change this behavior and make it a habit that the images of your posts link to the URL of the post they are included in, much more efficient if possible.

Copyscape

Copyscape ] is an online service that allows you to search our blog content and locate where it appears. It is a specialized search engine that, in its free version, offers a banner to place on our blog to "scare" possible sploggers. They also have versions Premium and Copysentry to automate this type of searches and even manage the cases of plagiarism you find.

Pingbacks and Trackbacks

Check the inbound links daily to your blog on the WordPress Desktop . In this way you will find not only blogs that link to your articles, which of course you should visit and thank them for the detail, but also those who are making use of your content in some way.

2. How to avoid content theft?

We have already seen in another article that there are systems for to create posts of the feeds of a blog with tools that extract the content automatically. Well, many Splogs are created with these applications or plugins.

Although there are many detractors about it I included, because with this technique you somehow betray the objective of the feeds: reading in your feed reader or email the content of a blog to which you have decided to subscribe, can be a (radical) solution to avoid theft of content or, at least, you reverse visits. This is so because in the thief blog you will only see the excerpt of your posts and to see them full you will have to irremediably click the original link of your blog.

As we explained before, one of the biggest cancers these days are the automatic systems of content theft of RSS feeds. Fortunately there are also utilities for add content that, at least, shows in some way the original site of the content.

Cut your posts into several pages

In addition to generating more page impressions in your own blog, if you write a long article it is a good habit to insert the code so that to read it full you have to click on a link, which already leads to your blog and the original article. [19659020] If you use Feedburner to manage your RSS feed there is a very interesting feature that, apart from adding interactivity to your posts, can serve to show you when they steal your content from the feeds also some link that identifies the original site, the feedflares . They are links that you can add at the end of your feeds to socialize your posts, add copyright or a link to the original post. You have a sample in our RSS feed there are the links at the end of each post that show you the author of the article and a link to the original article.

Use external servers to host the images

It seems obvious but it goes without saying that if you host your images on external sites like Flickr or Imageshack you will not be affected by the hotlinking regarding the bandwidth consumption . Yes, you lose track of who is stealing content from you.

AntiLeech

AntiLeech is a WordPress plugin that generates "special" content for splogs so that you offer links back to your own blog. To do this, you define a series of chains of IPs and / or agents so that when an IP or suspicious site visits your blog, obtain a false vision of it and can not steal your content. However, unblocked visitors will see your blog normally.

WP-Ban

WP Ban is another WordPress plugin, from my dear Lester Chan which allows ban by IP, IP range or domain name to unwanted visitors. Simple to use and highly recommended.

HTACCESS

How could it be otherwise, also the .htaccess file can help us avoid the theft of content in very efficient ways. Let's see how to do it.

1. Avoid Content Theft with .htaccess

We will edit the .htaccess file, or create it if it does not exist, and we will add the following lines …

  • IP Banking

    You must, of course, replace the sample IP (69.77.188.231) with the IP of the splogger, or add as many as you need.

  • Banning by Domain

    Where you will replace 'splogger' with the domain name of the content thief.

2. Avoid Hotlinking with .htaccess

We can also prevent theft of images and bandwidth with the .htaccess file. We have two main options:

    • No image alternative: Adding these lines to our .htaccess prevents our images from being stolen and consumes us bandwidth.

      The first lines are saying which domains IF you allow to display your images. As you can see, the first, essential, is yours (whether you have www or not), and then you can add as many lines as you want to allow your images to show.

      The last line is where we indicate which types of files will not be seen in the Splog being able to add the ones that you usually use in your blog.

    • With alternative image: With this method we do not avoid the consumption of bandwidth (although we can also host the image on an external server) but it is much more "convincing" as the Splog readers will know that the aforementioned site is a content thief. The idea is that you generate an image like that we have and show it instead of the originals of your articles.

      Here, starting from the same principle of the previous case, we change the last line so that anyone trying to show your files (gif, jpg, jpeg, png – even javascript files, css or zip) appears our "personalized" image of punishment or notice to navigators.

      NOTES :

      1. The modifiers you see are for giving special instructions. Thus ' NC ' indicates that it is not case-sensitive, ' R ' which redirects the request to the URL that we indicate, ' F ' which is prohibit the loading of any extension that we indicate and ' L ' indicates that it is the last rule to comply if the conditions indicated above are met.
      2. It is important that the extension of the alternative image be, for example , JPE to prevent our own rules from blocking it. Of course you can choose another image format as long as we have not blocked it in our list of blocked extensions with the rule applied.

You can also easily generate this type of codes for .htaccess in this tool online .

Licenses

Of course, you will not avoid it in the vast majority of cases but it is always convenient to add a license to use the contents of our blog so that we can defend our authorship in case of plagiarism or theft.

The most recommendable are these:

  • Creative Commons – CC is based on the inclusion of a icon that redirects to a text with unilateral manifestation of assignment of rights, coloriuris are contracts of assignment of rights, in such a way that the visitors of a website can accept the contract proposed by the author of the contents, being a copy of the contract for the two parties.
  • Coloriuris – It comes to offer a type of contract of assignment of rights for owners of blogs, web pages and audiovisual content. Using color codes you can choose the type of license chosen, including the code on your site offers a popup with the conditions of the same.

As main difference it seems that while Creative Commons are holders of the brand and any day could charge for the "service", Coloriuris gives a license to use the brand and guarantee that it will always be free. In addition, Coloriuris is better adapted to the Spanish legislation, although it supports others.


I hope that all these tips will help you, that you keep them in your favorites and spread them. Of course, if you disagree, you have something to discuss or you want to point to some system but it's your turn.

On measures to avoid hotlinking • WordPress Help

Hello, as it seems that the recent measures we have taken to avoid the hotlinking ((Theft of bandwidth using from other sites images of the original site)) are causing some other disorder to our readers I thought convenient explain the functioning of the changes made and, incidentally, request your collaboration to improve the system

Basically what we have done is add some rules in the file htaccess so that if someone copies content from our blog, at least, do not do Hotlinking to the original images of the post and, incidentally, that he knows that what he is doing is not to our liking. Thus, if someone extracts the content of WordPress Help from the RSS feed or directly from the blog, in principle you will not notice anything but at the time of publishing the new post on your blog there the images will be seen but a special one indicating where the content has been extracted.

Of course this does not prevent the consumption of bandwidth from our server, which we pay religiously out of pocket, but is a TEMPORARY measure to encourage those who like to SHARE WordPress Help content on their blog to, at least, host the images on their own server . It really does not make sense except for the convenience of not doing it because in many cases they are blogs hosted in free services.

And yes, we like to share the content of WordPress Help not There is a problem with it. We only ask for some netiquette:

  1. Link to the original article
  2. Host the images on the server of the blog that shares the post

The first thing we will not get it no matter how much we put ourselves because there are people who simply pass subject but at least the second will not cost us money we do not have.

It's been almost a year since we started this blog, and so far we have endured without this type of measures even though we had to change server , largely for this reason . But because it has become very popular and more and more people "share" our posts doing hotlinking we have chosen to apply it to see if we stop this tendency a little bit.

Now, in this process, is not desirable even for us there are surely some things to improve. In the comments and by mail I have been warned by some readers that there are services they use regularly to read WordPress Help where these warning images also appeared instead of the originals, and this is where I ask for your help.

We are currently open to the " step "to the following services:

  • WordPress Planet
  • Google.com
  • Google.es
  • Netvibes
  • Bloglines
  • Feedburner
  • Hotmail
  • Yahoo
  • GMail
  • ] MSN
  • Yahoo Mail
  • Windows Live

If you use a different one and you can not see the images correctly, or want to share the WordPress Help posts as they do in Planet WordPress, you just have to comment and add the domain or service so that the posts are shown in full, images included.

Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience we really have been avoiding it for a long time but it was already aciendo indispensable, at least for our poor economy. The blog asks for much more traffic than what (still) supports advertising, and I promise that when I solve this problem I eliminate the rescission and all the publicity that I can.

NOTE: I just verified that the first result of this measure has been that one of the splogs ((fake Blogs, are blogs that do not have original content and subtract content from others through automatic systems that "steal" the full content of RSS feeds)) that bothered me the most just removed to Help WordPress of its automatic system of extraction of posts. It was one of the reasons that I ended up deciding to use this system because it is a site that steals site from many blogs and surrounds porn posts, and did not want to see WordPress Help content in that environment.

NOTE 2: A reader tells me that the image is perhaps too aggressive. As you know this from Photoshop is not my thing so if anyone dares to do a less strong I will be happy to use it.

NOTE 3: Added new services
