Add comment rules in WordPress • WordPress Help

Today I was asking a colleague how to add a text in the WordPress comment area so that the rules for using them, his comment policy or " netiqueta "because he had done it but modifying files of the WordPress installation and, of course, with each update the happy text disappeared.

As you already know, the answer is quite simple, and there is two ways at least like everything in WordPress, namely …

None of these methods is affected by WordPress updates, of course. The first way to do it has the disadvantage that if you update the theme it will be lost, so either you use child themes or you remember to add the code again or you use the second method, the plugin method.

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
  • 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

Yesterday because of a chat in the forum, thanks to Callejero and todotuto I was able to learn this new word. [19659007] And you will say: What does this have to do with me? And with blogs? . Well, these are a series of courtesy rules, although it is not obligatory to know them, it is very useful when relating through the cyber-space; As the above quote says: " not knowing it does not exempt from responsibilities ."

This essay talks about many interesting things, including how to address other people through email, chat and even in forums. They are simple, clear, and some are very real : write in capital letters is' shout ', send' chain of e-mails' is a way of spamming, in a forum before publishing 'use the search 'since it is annoying to see repeated issues, avoid' copy-paste ', and an endless etcetera of examples.
