WordPress widget: One down, more to go

Well that was fast. About two hours after I posted about my 2013 to-do list, I finished this. That’s what focus and micro-tasking do to me. I just wished I have many chances to be in the zone. Achieving them is challenging especially when your work and kids at home […]

A quick heads-up on the latest TCW update, in line with the release of WordPress 3.1. This update also addressed the comment hijacking issue that, while wonderfully suggested and fixed by Stuff by Sarah quite a while ago (and implemented by yours truly on v.0.999a) , were not fully effective […]

IMPORTANT: If you have customized the styles in any way on this widget, be aware that this update may break them! Fingers crossed, this version of TCW (downloadable in WP.org’s plugin repository) should address all of the problems encountered in v.1.4 as mentioned in the comments of my previous post […]

MyBlogLog: Do You Still Use It?

My sidebar still has the MyBlogLog widget hanging around. It’s mostly for the benefit of visitors who are MyBlogLog users; it gives their sites or blogs the extra exposure by allowing people to click on their avatars and visit their sites. But I don’t use MyBlogLog anymore. It’s probably been […]

Top Commentators Widget for WordPress updated

Yes, and finally it’s version 1.0. It’s a small update, but one which can improve the sidebar layout if you have been affected by it. The latest version fixes the extra tag that appears on all other pages when Show In Home Only is selected. Thanks to Ulquiorra for reporting […]

Tipping doesn’t work a.k.a. goodbye Scratchback

Some of you who have visited my site since a couple of weeks ago may have noticed the Tip Me (Scratchback) widget that I added in the sidebars. Yes, you don’t see it anymore, I’ve removed it. I suppose there’s no point, really, in using that widget if you want […]

Updating MyBlogLog widget not working

Once I read Andy Beard’s feed update on the latest MyBlogLog widget and seeing how cool-looking it was, I immediately rushed to my MBL dashboard and generated the widget code to add into my blog. Unfortunately, the MBL widget that I used, even after updating it according to the instructions […]

I joined the Entrecard bandwagon

Out goes my Blogsvertise ad, and in comes Entrecard. I initially put up the Blogsvertise ad due to numerous requests to advertise in my blog, but since I don’t want the hassle of managing them, I thought Blogsvertise could do it for me. (Not) surprisingly, I did not get any […]
