(you can see it in my personal blog ), but what I present today goes much further, or complements it, as you prefer.
Because if you are
addict Twitter user sure this plugin, Tweetable is what you were expecting, and is that in addition to the usual functions offered by other plugins of integration of Twitter and WordPress as widget in the sidebar to show updates, possibility to send your posts to Twitter, shorten URLs or even show your followers as an accountant, offers you something really geek …
Tweet while you manage your WordPress . This is thanks to a widget for the panel of the admin panel of WordPress that also installs, with which you can send messages to Twitter, or even see the messages of your friends (in the special page), while you perform administration tasks of your site. Milk! .
Installing this plugin requires some additional steps. Once activated you must go to the new menu of options called "Twitter", where you must follow an assistant that will connect your Twitter account to the application (your WordPress), and once finished you will have all the available paraphernalia, being able to send your messages to Twitter from the administration panel, on your own page, even having your own list of keywords on Twitter, all without leaving WordPress, let alone the wigdet on the board, a joy. Chulo, huh?
Although, at the time of writing this entry, version 2.8 was only 36% complete, it already incorporates many new features, but there are always some that stand out. As usual, an image and a brief explanation:
If you like the way you can organize the WordPress Board, you'll love knowing that version 2.8 will include that same mechanism to organize the widgets: just drag the widget you want to the bar you want and ready. Nothing to select confusing options as before.
A feature that I liked in version 2.6 was that you could preview the theme before activating it, but honestly, it was annoying for those who wanted to activate a theme without having Preview it (for example, if you already knew how the theme was). Well, now things are simplified: we can activate it, see how it is or even delete it, all separately (although if you preview the theme, you can still activate it as in version 2.7)
Those are the innovations already incorporated in version 2.8 , but there is more: among the innovations to incorporate are:
We hope that these features are finally included in WordPress 2.8 because they look tempting. For the rest, we can only wait 🙂
Our well-known friend and partner ejner69 has created a plugin (which we do not forgive for not having announced here) with which to return part of the WordPress 2.6 aspect to the WordPress 2.7 board. Stylepress is in an early development phase but works perfectly.
to take advantage of that custom almost liturgy, to precisely use the Board as a reminder of events tasks or whatever?
Well, it's as simple as what you get used to to do daily, and you do not need to install any plugin, or add an application to your motley desktop only you have to use the Dashboard List . The process is as simple as …
That's it! Now when you enter the Board you will have at first glance, in the list of drafts, the pending tasks waiting for you. When you do the task you simply delete the entry, reprogram it if necessary, etc. Is not it just great?
One of the most popular queries about blogs in WordPress.com is how to insert audio how to have a player in posts.
And the truth is that it is very simple, you just have to use the plugin installed on WordPress.com that, unfortunately, does not have a visual interface of use nor is there information on the Board of how to use it, as it is opaque for users. The plugin is Audio Player and its use is very simple:
What you get is a really simple but practical Flash player with which your readers can play the inserted audio file.
Note : in the version of the plugin for WordPress.org (blogs hosted on your server) the syntax to show the player is different, this:
Another new functionality that has appeared in the development version of WordPress 2.8 is the possibility of organizing the administration board in more (or less) columns. Little useful I think but I had to inform you that that's what we are for.
