I had WordPress comments turned on for awhile and had a ton of spam about penis enlargement, Nigerian relatives, and how Candy wanted to make my wildest fantasies come true. I didn’t think these added much value (sorry, Candy), so I found a WordPress plug-in that turned off ALL the comments, appropriately named Disable Comments.
This adds a new item under the WP dashboard settings. I selected to disable comments everywhere. Harsh? Tell me about it.
I’ve been playing with the standard WordPress Twenty-Twelve theme and a variation based on Zurb Foundation, WP-Forge.
I played with some logo alternatives and manually entered the “Rx” graphic on the how-to post titles. It’s simple to do. In the title box, add your image location as:
<img src=”http://www.something.com/Rx_blue.png”> The is My Post Title
This is My Post Title
It looked a bit ugly in the WP dashboard because the “<img etc…” code/title pops up in all the post title listings. I’m just going to add [Rx] as text in the title. Simpler.
I use Instant WordPress (IWP) for developing WordPress offline and I use Windows Live Writer (WLW) tool for writing content. There was some sort of trick that I used to get WLW to work and I don’t remember exactly what I did. See boys and girls, why I need to document, document, document? Nuts. I know it had something do with the url address of the WordPress directory.
Anyway, I found a WLW 2012 portable via the ever-trusty Internet. This worked great until Windows Updater “helped” me out by overwriting my files with the latest and greatest. Anyway, this is just a note to let me know that it can be repaired. How? Beats me. Hopefully, I’ll write it up next time it happens (with screen shots and all!)
