<p> Mac users, so lucky to have wonderful applications for almost everything, we've always had some envy of Windows users for a single application, <a href= Windows Live Writer that little joy of Microsoft with which to publish in blogs from the desktop of the computer.

But you still agree with me that the wait, and envy, is over, because there is an application, PixelPumper whose name you would never have guessed its virtues, especially gifted for blogging, and especially WordPress . [19659] 006] The application, which is installed from the App Store of your Mac is completely free in its main version (with € 10.99 update for more options), but the best part is the easy which is to use.

Its virtues ?, these are some of the main ones:

  • Take advantage of devices with Retina display
  • Load of images with drag and drop
  • Featured images with drag and drop
  • Galleries with one click
  • Management of several sites simultaneously
  • Creating entries offline
  • Programming entries
  • Format advanced texts but compatible with the WordPress editor

Once active, the application is really nice and simple to use, with nothing to envy to any another iApp . In fact it is even addictive how easy it is to write in this application, without any limitation of Internet connection, because if you have no connection there are no limits, save the draft offline and then publish when you have a connection, with full WordPress compatibility

A great option for those who like offline editors.

Custom permanent links in WordPress installed locally • WordPress Help

 rewrite module

A local installation of WordPress is very useful . There are many occasions when you can take advantage of this despite the fact that this type of facility has its drawbacks.

Either to give courses where you do not have Internet guaranteed, or to test with versions in development, a local installation it is a good resource . Personally I do not love them and I always prefer to do online tests, but it's true that they take you out of more than one hurry and that's why I always have a local installation that I try to have updated.

One of the drawbacks of local WordPress installations, through the systems of type WAMP, XAMPP or MAMP, is that if you change the permanent links of the default option to others as you usually have an ugly error . C'mon, permanent links do not work except the default ones of type http: // localhost: 8888 /? P = 06 .

This is because it is possible that the module rewrite of Apache is not active that is, the one already known by all mod_rewrite .

To make sure that permanent permanent links work, you just have to go to the main window of your WAMP , XAMPP or MAMP and, in the tab corresponding to Apache check that the rewrite_module is selected and if not it marks it to be activated and you restart the local server so that the changes are applied

 rewrite apache mamp

Now should already work . If not, you will have to add the corresponding rewrite rules to the file . Htaccess as indicated in the permanent links settings window, nothing more.

Only as a reminder I leave you a few links on how to install WordPress locally:

  1. Install WordPress on Windows
  2. Install WordPress on Mac
  3. Install WordPress on Ubuntu

WordPress will be radically simplified • WordPress Help

Thus, without half measures, WordPress will be radically simplified. This is what Matt Mullenweg has said at a recent conference in New York .

This coming Sunday WordPress turns 9 and soon we will have the WordPress version 3.4, but WordPress must advance to be a tremendously simple and simple platform, especially oriented to mobile devices. Because WordPress already has the fundamental tools and code to be a solid, secure and powerful CMS but it has to address a mobile future that is already present for most users (first world, not forget us.)

And that is that WordPress should go to offer that feeling that they even tell us again, and we do not care, that " is not a CMS ", that it seems so simple that, as with the Mac, it seems incredible that with such a simple interface you can do so many great things from a personal blog to a high traffic website.

I think that We have all seen how WordPress mobile applications are becoming more useful, with CSS adaptable to the devices and with improvements in the interface, but we must take a step forward, especially thinking about the tablets those little tacit wonders useful that any child or elder know how to use nothing else to take them. That's what WordPress should tend to, and for that it will surely have to do without much " paraphernalia " current. Do you remember Habari ?, because I think that an advance in that direction would be right

Anyway, it's not a change that is made in a few days, but surely for the 10th anniversary of WordPress in a year, for when we are talking about WordPress 3.5 or WordPress 3.6 we will have an equally powerful platform, but much more friendly, simple and adapted to all types of devices, but before.

Note: bi0xid comments that a fork is being worked on simpler so that those who want a WordPress "lite" opt for it but keeping a full version to have a full-blown CMS. Come on, there will be 2 versions, the complete and the "light".

Personally I think something could be done in the style of Multisite, that just as you can expand your WordPress so that it becomes a network there would also be an option to make it lite . But this is already a matter of taste.

Your Blog is like your Computer • WordPress Help

If something I have learned during the time I have been experimenting and learning in web development is that there is no plugin, script, code that works in all situations and configurations. What works on one website will not work on another either by Murphy's Law, by the elves or the confluence of the stars. Not even CSS is an exact science to apply in all cases.

Why is this so ?, Because a web is not a single uniform system, where there are no variables. As in a computer, the configuration, installed components, even the user matter. That is why sometimes we see that the same code or plugin works for some users and others destroy the blog. I will make some associations so that you understand what I mean.

Server ≈ Computer

A server, despite that name that seems to give a certain dose of kindness, to be there to give us something, does not stop being a computer ( or several) with a hardware and a network connection. There are times that a processor overheating, a RAM failure or a badly welded component can throw our website without any consideration.


Any BIOS / CMOS tends to manage our computer, communicate differently with the hardware.

Just as it is not the same to have a BIOS or CMOS installed than another, it is not the same to have a version of PHP or MySQL as another, and this will greatly affect the way in which behaves the hardware installed on the server, in addition to the "applications" and the "operating system."

<h3><span id= WordPress ≈ Operating System

As with the basic" software "layer (PHP + MySQL), the" operating system "affects the primordial way to the communication of the hardware with the software. Surely you already know that it does not work Windows Milenium equal to Windows XP, and similarly it does not interrelate with the rest of WordPress 2.1 software that WordPress 2.7.1.

CSS ≈ Graphic interface

The base on which an operating system is based to be displayed before the user is the graphic interface and, above all, the software layer that manages the graphic resources. And yes, there is a part that is hardware and drivers, and that conjunction is also interrelated with the software. Well, your website also affects the relationship of the stylesheet (CSS) with the "operating system", the "BIOS / CMOS", the "computer" and applications.

Plugins ≈ Applications

If to all this tangle of components that need to have a symbiotic relationship we join the installation of third-party applications the thing is complicated greatly. And the plugins are like those programs that we downloaded from Softonic or Sourceforge which sometimes offer us fantastic features and others provoke a hang from our "computer" or get the "operating system" to drag or even stop working and the "graphical interface" goes to hell . Are you taking a wave?

I think it's not hard to understand that there are many variables that can make something as simple as a plugin installation – that almost everyone works – we destroy the blog. When someone asks in the forum why it has been destroyed the web by adding a code, plugin or make a simple change to the theme there are many issues that may have caused it:

  • Inconsistent hardware and with faults
  • Different versions of PHP and / or MySQL
  • Different version of WordPress
  • Different coding of the CSS of the theme
  • Different versions of the plugin
  • Any combination of the previous ones

That is why that always influenced so much in the forum in giving as much information as possible, and so it is very important to be aware that a solution for a user does not have to be the panacea for the rest. Do you catch it?

Download content from your posts on your mobile • WordPress Help

Blueding a content download service in mobile phones has developed a couple of plugins with which to integrate this functionality in your blog, either Blogger or WordPress ]

What you get is that under each of your posts a new area appears from which to download post content on your mobile phone. For example, if in your post there is an image, a file MP3 even a link to an application for Symbian JAR or Windows Mobile then it will show a link to download each of those contents in your mobile.

I find it a great application for Podcasts or blogs on mobile, and also great application for other types of blogs, like Fotologs do not you think?
