For a while now I’ve been using the plugin SEO Slugs on several blogs, to make sure no unnecessary words end up in my URLs. However, this plugin still only exists in English, and I really needed one in Dutch.
So, I scoured the web for lists of Dutch stopwords, and combined those to make a Dutch version of the plugin. I’d like to make an internationalized version that contains multiple word lists, and I may do so in the future, but for now here’s just a Dutch version of the SEO Slugs plugin.
If you use the Simple Facebook Connect plugin for WordPress (and I really do recommend using it), you might have noticed that you will get an error message each time you login to the admin panel.
Notice: you're using the auto-generated password for your account. Would you like to change it to something you'll remember easier?
This is not just something admins see: every user can access certain parts of the WP admin panel, for instance when they want to change their settings. Usually this warning would be pretty useful too, but if you use Facebook Connect to login you will never ever use or have to change your password. This means the warning is totally useless, and should just be hidden.
I wrote a small plugin that does just that: hide the generated password error for users that login using Facebook (or as WordPress itself calls it, “default password nagging”).
I love WordPress plugins. In fact, I love them so much that on one of the websites I’m currently working on I have 26 plugins activated and more will be added in the foreseeable future.
Gladly, WordPress offers ways of disabling the CSS and JS files that are added by these plugins. I’ll elaborate on how the adding and removing of both works. If you already know or don’t care and just want the script, just jump to the final code now. Let’s take styles for example, and look at how these are disabled. (more…)
Durango is the name for my newly created WordPress theme, the one you’re probably seeing right now. I’m not a graphical designer, so most of the visual aspects I borrowed from a collection of other websites, but I tried to give it my own twist and included some cool new HTML/CSS stuff.
I’ll give a brief overview of how and why it was made, and things I think I should still improve. If you don’t care about all that and just want a copy of this theme, jump to the download button. (more…)
