Recents Drafts All Authors

It's not uncommon that a blog runs by different authors, so it may be useful if you can have a quick look at the drafts of all authors. In our joint blog WP Engineer we created a feed, which keeps us up to date if a new draft of all authors were created.

The work of every author is different and the dashboard is the center of information. Therefore we have decided to supplement a widget in the Dashboard, which shows the last five drafts of all authors. I enhanced the existing Plugin Draft Feed.

  • It provides a feed of all drafts
  • And the last 5 drafts of all authors in the Dashboard.

More Memory For WordPress – More Information About WordPress

wp-system-health
WordPress is growing and growing, with the growing of WordPress the demand of memory is also growing. The standard use is WordPress 32MByte (see settings.php ), which is not even provided by every hoster today. This is a problem - therefore: Lovely Hoster, give users more memory!

But also to use the memory, it requires a small syntax extension in the configuration of WordPress.

WordPress Plugin Compatibility Checker

Right before the upcoming WordPress 2.8 you also should check out if all your Plugins are compatible with Version 2.8 before you upgrade. There is a great website which includes over 5000 Plugins, where you can see if the Plugin will work with WordPress 2.8.

Also very interesting for all Plugin developer, you can see in detail, why your Plugin is not working with the newest version or what can be done better. Really informational! Check it out!

plugincheck
The only thing what would make this even better, if all the Plugins would have a number and this list would have an additional column, where you see the number of a Plugin, which is not compatible with the according Plugin. But I guess, that would be too much work.

But I have to say, respect to the guys of BraveNewCode, that they keep this list up to date! Chapeau!

FirePHP and WordPress

wp-firephp

WordPress uses a whole series of constants and variables that may be useful. Even better if you know what is in there. A clean output of the contents can be realized with the Firefox add-on FirePHP for Firebug.

To symplify and accelerate my development, I always have a plugin activated, which outputs various contents, directly above FirePHP. Hence I created a small Plugin, which contains a whole series of constants and variables, which is based on the upcoming 2.8 version of WordPress. Because I think that this can be useful, here the download to the Plugin and the content, if someone has a solution and only needs the constants and variables.

Plugin WP FirePHP

To work quickly and easily in WordPress with FirePHP, I recommend to use the Plugin. It requires no settings or something similar in the database, the code is exemplary, so that you can easily expand and areas can be commented out if some are not needed. We have a variety of content in it that are useful in WordPress, including the constants, global variables and PHP predefined variables.

Download the Plugin in SVN of WordPress: WP FirePHP. The installation is as usual, put it in the Plugin folder and activate.
