I’ve been trying to rediscover a plugin that included a “You may also like” section below each post that I’d originally by accident when updating a site and its plugins, but didn’t leave enabled because there were some integration problems. Continue reading
A number of my clients have multiple WordPress websites. They write their own content. Sometimes they want a play area (AKA sandbox) where they can try things out without messing up the site content. For quite a few of them, implementing a WordPress Multisite solution would appear to be the way to go. They would have their main sites visible to the general public and the play area(s) would be protected from view.

In January 2012, I published How to change your WordPress Copyright statement for 2012. Later in the year (February) I released version 1.10 of the oik plugin in which I introduced the shortcode. This shortcode automatically sets the “to year” to the current year. So the instructions for 2013 are now a lot simpler Continue reading
