I just released my first WordPress plugin – the WP Gallery Image Shortcode plugin.  This plugin lets you add an image to a post or page from the WordPress gallery on your site using a shortcode.  Normally when you add an image, it embeds an image tag and sometimes an anchor tag that each includes […]

Regenerating WordPress Thumbnails

I’m in the process of moving my WordPress sites to a new server and a new version of WordPress, and as part of that I’m also reevaluating how my uploads are organized. I discovered that some of my images didn’t have thumbnails generated in the right sizes. Fortunately, I’m not the only person who has […]

Copying a WordPress Blog to a Different Domain

Periodically I need to copy the contents of a log to another domain for testing purposes.  WordPress doesn’t make this particularly easy as it embeds the complete URL of the site in many places, including the options table, in the posts table for each post, and even in posts, such as when media is added. […]

Changing the WordPress Table Prefix

WordPress allows you to specify the prefix used for naming all your tables.  Unfortunately, there are several places where it hard-codes the full names of the tables, including the prefixes, so you can’t just rename the tables.  You also must modify values in the tables.  I’ve had to do this a few times recently as […]

One of the limitations of MailPress themes is that you can’t use CSS.  You can still use styles, but you have […]

MailPress Review – Configuration

After I activated MailPress, I had to refresh my browser to allow the MailPress user interface elements to show up, but this was probably because I also use the Lighter Menus plugin (a staple for any WordPress site I manage).  MailPress spreads its user interface elements around to several places within the WordPress admin panel, […]

MailPress Review – Installation

Like most plugins, the MailPress plugin can be installed simply by downloading the ZIP or RAR file, uncompressing it, copying the mailpress directory to your wp-content\plugins directory, then activating the plugin.  However, there is more involved to get it to work – you will need to configure it.
