Adding WordPress templates to NetBeans

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

If you’ve written more than a couple of WordPress plugins odds are good you’ve copied and pasted the plugin sample readme.txt file into your project. Just sat down to start on my 7th plugin and figured there had to be a better way than Googling for the template, opening it, copying, and pasting. NetBeans makes… Read more »

When is the right time to ditch a website?

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

Several years ago I registered a domain name, reliti.com, that sounded like one of those cool web 2.0 type domain names. Originally I wanted to create my own content management system, but as I started down that road I decided that I would rather make plugins and themes on top of WordPress instead. That way… Read more »

Finally got around to customizing my theme

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

It’s been a while since I upgraded to WordPress 3 point whatever and switched over to the default twenty ten theme. Sure, I did a bit of customization. But it was still the base theme, even with the default image across the top. Finally had a chance to do some work on it today and… Read more »

Moving WordPress Plugins

Shouldn’t really matter all that much other than the other site is just going to sort of wither away. This… Read more »

Adsense vs. Amazon Affiliate and Omakase

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

Around the end of last year I started using OpenX to take care of ad serving on a couple of my sites. The intent was that I could switch things around much more quickly to see what’s working and what’s not. Now that it’s been a few months I decided to go and look at… Read more »

Set WordPress image to “none”

Posted by & filed under Blogging.

Been using WordPress for a while now. Heck, this blog has been running WP since 2007. So it’s really sad that it took until today for me to figure this out. Putting an image inline to a post defaults to link to a new attachment page for that image. As often as I remembered to,… Read more »
