Google Webfont: dentro la talpa WordPress

Today (after more than five months) I get to write on the blog. And back at breakneck speed with an article to 007 that will make your hair stand on end users WordPress.

I discovered today that the version in WordPress 3.8 (Today we are 4.0) has been enabled by default in the backend the Open Sans font. In fact I had already noticed little slow in loading the backend, but I thought it was due to the new "engine" ie WordPress, instead is due to direct inclusion of a branded Google webfont.


WordPress: warn the reader that the post is old

Often (writing software and technology) that the article is now present, tomorrow has already passed. There is at least un plugin per WordPress to notify the reader that the post you're reading was written long ago, that is a perfect solution and ready for use, groped but I also wanted to change the code of my theme to add this simple function automatically.

I state that the following steps create a box (in this case yellow) before the title of the article.

WordPress: alert the reader to an article dated

Today I illustrate a small process, which I highly recommend to those bloggers linked to the development of a certain topic, to automatically warn the reader that the article you are reading is more old man a time of our choosing, and possibly belonging to a certain category. I am thinking especially to my blog, in which information technology can go well today, but it may already be obsolete with the next release of a software, no longer supported by the operating system or ingetrata.

The result will be completely customizable: appear a block (DIV) in the top of the article, with a class of our choice. We will then give us a style to the DIV.


WordPress 3.3 è qui: What's new

Just today I updated WordPress to version 3.3 in italiano, and I must say that the WordPress team is committed to considerably improve its'Usability. First, after the upgrade, you will be automatically redirected to a landing page that explains the changes and the change of habit for the user.

First were reduced the clicks in the left menu. If before it was necessary to click on an item to open the drop down menu containing the submenu, Now you can see the submenu Hover. A great time saver for those who are forced to always do the same actions in a repetitive. In the top bar now appeared on the left some magical voices including "+ fresh" to add a new content, icon to administer the comments and "Clear the cache". On the right is still the ability to access the page profile change (a little 'Google style).


Why I left “Shareaholic” in favor of “foxyBookmarks”

For some years are depopulating within the blog icons for sharing 2.0. Risquotono rightly quite successful because in this way the webmaster has the opportunity to make more easily visible their own blog giving some possibilities, negate the prima, Sharing the average user. Among other things, does not weigh down the page and the icons are beautiful to look at.

In a nutshell, it is a small bar to the bottom article containing some of the icons for the most used services sharing the web 2.0 (I can see an example in this article at bottom of page). You acknowledge that the logo of the service that he uses (facebook, twitter, stumble, etc..) and the process of sharing is immediate, we do not need intermediaries.

Today we see a small program in PHP ready to use and is well suited to any of our web pages. It is HTML Purifier a common libreria PHP, that cleans up the HTML dates of the pages by removing all tag e i markup unnecessary, that often weigh down the page. Also makes the code of our pages secure (I'm thinking about dynamic sites: WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, etc..) contrasting effectively XSS attacks (Cross-site scripting).

WordPress e phpBB insieme con WP-United

More than a month after the last item back to talk about WordPress (the well-known CMS voted to blog), this time how to integrate it with phpBB (the well-known manager of community, the forum manager). Today is just an informative article, unfortunately I have not had time to test the operation, the simplicity and reliability of the package. For now I just segnarlarne the existence.

Recently I stumbled upon WP-United, a mod for phpBB3 that combines and integrates a blog WordPress and a forum phpBB. As far as I hear from user manual seems very easy to install, neither more nor less than a simple mod for phpBB. Installation is carried out in five easy steps:


Some methods for countering email spam

The satirical cartoon of today, of Randy Glasbergen introduces us to the problem of SPAM, a true scourge of the Internet. In some recent statistics the proportion of spam on all e-mails sent each day reaches'82%, and it is not difficult to compile statistics on their personal email box. For example, the 21 April I received eight spam emails... and eight email "good". The methane.

The scourge of spam is also due to little control providers "too cheap", or to laws of some countries too "libertine" that do not impose controls providers. But there is a solution to all, indeed there are several. Some time ago I've had to include an email address in the clear between the pages of a site. Write the address unencrypted email is tantamount to saying: "I'm here to receive SPAM", so I have documented and the solutions are many.


GTranslate: a widget for automatic translation

Today we see up close one of the most automatisms that I have made my life easier on the web. Many of us know the "Language Tools" offered by Google, but not everyone knows that it is possible integrate the buttons "flag" on its own site to make a machine translation, snapshot of all the content without changing the address in the URL bar. I'm talking about GTranslate, a book which deals with the instant translation of all the content that is on a page; and an example you can see it by clicking on the flags in the right column, at the top of this site. In this case, the library is integrated in a a WordPress plugin (the motor that "turn" this blog), but you can use it with any website, even with static HTML pages.
