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 […]

MailPress Review – Theme Design (Styling)

Note (Feb. 12, 2008) Andre has implemented a version of styling that I feel is superior to this one.  I’ll provide an update at some point, but check out the MailPress2 style for details. One of the limitations of MailPress themes is that you can’t use CSS.  You can still use styles, but you have […]

Wikipedia Autolink WordPress Plugin

I found a truly wonderful plugin for helping readers learn the terminology used on a web site – Wikipedia Autolink by Cristiano Fino.  This plugin uses a shortcode-like mechanism for creating a link to a topic for a term on WikipediaW, like so: [W:{term}] This will create a link in one of several ways, depending […]


I decided to try out FeedBurner on my site using the FeedSmith plugin.  I happened to subscribe to someone else’s blog through FeedBurner and I kind of like the result as a reader.  It’s an amazingly rich solution for publishing feeds of a site, connecting many different applications together for publishing.  I hope it proves […]
