Notiflyer WordPress Plugin

Posted on March 21, 2013

If you run a WordPress website which receives loads of social interaction and comments, wouldn’t it be great if you could use the interaction to send out messages promoting your latest offers, or by directing people towards your social channels?

With Notiflyer you can do just that. The plugin allows you add a custom message, such as an offer, details of an event or even links to other parts of your website, Facebook or Twitter, which are included in any comment notification emails which are sent out. So whenever someone receives an email from your WordPress site telling them of a new comment, they’ll also receive your custom message, or ‘flyer’.

== Description ==

Notiflyer allows custom messages to be sent out with the comment notification emails WordPress sends to the post authors. This allows you to add messages such as links to your Twitter and Facebook pages, or messages about offers and promotions. This is particularly useful for attracting people towards your social channels on multi author sites.

== Installation ==

1. Upload `notiflyer` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= Can I include HTML in the notification?

No, HTML can not be included in the notification.

Dynauthor WordPress Plugin

Posted on February 6, 2013

The Dynauthor WordPress plugin (Dynamic Author, but for dinosaur fans) amends the standard WordPress author list on the add/edit posts page to allow dynamic filtering of the authors using JQuery.

Why would you want to do this you may ask? The plugin was created for websites which rely a lot on user submitted content, and have a large number of authors. When the website admins and editors add the content, and need to change the author to the relevant user, a lengthy list can be difficult to navigate. The Dynauthor plugin turns the usual dropdown list of authors into a dynamic search box, which displays the authors in real time as you type.

We have tested this plugin on a website with thousands of authors, and it saves a lot of time when adding posts and looking for the correct author.

== Description ==

The Dynauthor plugin replaces the standard dropdown list selection method for authors with a search box, as the user begins the type a list appears of the authors matching that criteria. The list will update with each new character typed.

This is designed for sites with a large selection of authors.

== Installation ==

1. Upload `dynauthor` folder to the `/wp-content/plugins/` directory
1. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
1. Ensure you have Author checked in the ‘Screen Options’ panel of your post page.

== Frequently Asked Questions ==

= How do I select the author when I can see it in the list?

Simply click the author, it will become bold and will fill in the field with that value, then make sure you publish/update your post.

= Do I have to start with the first letters of the authors name? =

No, the plugin will search any part of the authors name, for instance, to find ‘steven’, you could start to type ‘even’ and it will appear in the list of potential matches

Top 5 WordPress plugins for SEO

Posted on December 17, 2010

We’ve seen a lot of blogs of late where SEO experts have spoken about the top plugins for WordPress to help with SEO, and most of them have mentioned the same plugins, such as All in One SEO, Google XML Sitemaps and SEO Smart Links. While yes, these plugins are important for SEO and you should be using them, or plugins like them, we thought we’d produce a list of the top 5 WordPress plugins for search engine optimisation that aren’t on everyone’s lists this Christmas.

We want to offer some WordPress plugins that you may not have heard of, and you may not have considered the use of in your websites. So, in no particular order, here are the top 5 plugins for SEO that we like to use.

Top Level Categories
When you set up a WordPress blog you’ll find that each category you create has the /category/ before it in the URL string. You can rename this, but finding a logical, relevant name isn’t always possible and it’s better for SEO if you (more…)

WordPress scheduling issue

Posted on January 5, 2010

Anyone who upgraded their version of WordPress to 2.9 just before Christmas may have received a nasty surprise when they came back from the Christmas and New Year break. Those smart enough to have scheduled their content across Christmas and New Year could have found that none of their posts went live, thanks to a bug in WordPress 2.9.

The chaps at WordPress have fixed this in their hurriedly released WordPress 2.9.1 (2.9 didn’t last long) but the damage for many will have already been done. Content is vitally important for SEO and websites need to stay refreshed over inactive periods such as the Christmas and New Year break. Scheduling content is one of the best ways of ensuring this happens, but for WordPress to (more…)

Exclude Pages plugin for WordPress

Posted on July 7, 2009

Google’s head of spam, Matt Cutts, recently spoke about PageRank sculpting and how people’s efforts to ‘sculpt’ their PageRank by adding nofollow tags to unimportant pages were redundant.

SEOs would add the Google created nofollow tag to links to pages such as ‘terms and conditions’ and ‘privacy policy’ pages so that the link juice, or PageRank, that existed on each page could be spread to more important, more deserving pages. This meant that if you had 6 links from your homepage, and 3 of them were nofollowed, the 3 that were followed would get a third of the PageRank each.

Matt Cutts now claims that the extra PageRank that would have been saved by nofollowing links is now lost in the ether, and suggests that webmasters (more…)

WordPress 2.8 released yesterday, have you upgraded yet?

Posted on June 12, 2009

The release of a new version of WordPress used to fill us with dread as we run numerous websites on the platform.

Why the feelings of dread and doom? Because when a new version of WordPress comes out you used to have go through every site copying the files across, changing the config file and then uploading the whole lot to the server, before running the upgrade program.

However, those clever people at WordPress saw this was tiresome and installed a one-click upgrade for the whole blog. Now when the dreaded ‘new version available’ link appears at the top of the WordPress dashboard, you don’t have head to (more…)
