NextGEN Gallery Review – Image Management

Image management is perhaps one of the strongest features of the NextGEN Gallery plugin compared with other image plugins, although until you learn a few concepts it can be a little difficult to use. Definitions Gallery – A collection of images.  Think of a gallery as a collection of images that are related, e.g. vacation […]

NextGEN Gallery Review – Configuration

There are a lot of options available in this plugin.  To configure it, you find a top-level Gallery menu in the admin menu.  The main page looks very similar to the WordPress Dashboard page.  The one thing that is missing is a link to the plugin page itself. Before you do anything else, go to […]

NextGEN Gallery Review – Installation

The installation instructions in the readme.txt file indicate that the plugin should be copied to a folder called nggallery, but Alex must have removed that requirement since writing that as the code clearly allows the plugin to be installed in any directory below wp-content\plugins.  I initially installed it in the nextgen-gallery directory and it worked […]

Testing out the Firefox waters

Based on the experience of a colleague, I decided to try out Firefox.  It was partially motivated by problems he was having viewing my blog in Firefox.  Installing it also gave me a way to verify what others see when they view my blog. Some of the add-ons are pretty cool as well.  Here are […]

My Codelog Theme Modifications

I found the Codelog theme by Alex Günsche two or three weeks ago and have been banging on it to make it do what I want.  I’m almost there, but I think my changes are useful enough to release. The two biggest changes I made were to make the theme widget-aware and to support both […]

Codelog – WordPress Theme Review

I’ve been on the prowl for a new theme for this blog and I may just have found it.  The Codelog theme by Alex Günsche is simple yet elegant.  With just a little bit of customization, I was able to get the results I was looking for.

Easier Gravatars version 1.1.1

Dougal Campbell upgraded his Easy Gravatars plugin to include some of the features I added to my version.  He didn’t include a couple features I added, however, so I’m finally getting around to merging his changes into mine.  His version added: Display image as a link to the comment author’s web site. Allow the image […]
