WordPress CMS modifications
Making WordPress the ultimate CMS!

Archive for March 2009

Just to let you know I have just updated my WP-CMS Post Control plugin to improve WordPress 2.7 compatibility.

If you are using a version below WordPress 2.7 you can still continue to use the previous version - you won’t even get the update notification in the plugins page, clever huh! You are advised to upgrade your main WordPress install of-course as soon as possible.

You can download the latest version here, or visit the main plugin page here.


Great news for people that own iPhones – the WordPress application has been updated!

I have been using this iPhone application almost from day 1 – and although it had some major shortcomings I was fairly happy with it. I often used it to jot down ideas for posts which I would save as drafts. It was limited in a number of ways though – which I’m glad to say have now been addressed!

The new features include:

  • Comment moderation (my no.1 wishlist feature – finally I’m able to edit comments on the move!!)
  • Landscape editing mode for posts (VERY welcome!)
  • Link creation help – for those of us that don’t like to write code!
  • Page creation and editing
  • Photo resizing and optimisation

It’s great to see development of this application – and it’s sure to help the popularity of WordPress grow! To update, just visit the Apple App Store and update through iTunes and best of all it’s FREE!

Shortcodes were properly introduced back in WordPress 2.5 – they are usually used in the post content area for doing all sorts of cool things, both with core code and plugins… but what if you need to call a shortcode OUTSIDE of a post (loop) in your template?
