UniServer WPReMix is a portable local server for Windows Operating System, which comes prepacked with WordPress. Its a simple zip package, you just have to extract and run, you will get a fully configured WordPress installed and ready for your test or local development. I made this to make things super easy for new WordPress developer. Its light weight, and no more server and port configuration.
I love name.com. Today they announced a new service called RapidPress. It’s a hosted WordPress solution, with domain and other necessary service. As a WordPress lover I also like to see more people built business on WordPress, making it easy for people to blog and make website. But probably for marketing Name.com in a way insult Automattic, company behind WordPress.com, which I don’t like. Keep reading for details.
I am happy to announce we have released free WordPress plugin “Twitter Cards Meta” today. It’s by far the best plugin available for Twitter Cards in WordPress, now available for free in WordPress.org. And now Twitter Cards works just superfine in my blog, take a look.
I actually pushed some rapid updates to my “Social Profilr Reimagined Changelog” plugin. Current latest version is 2.1.2, its more light weight and come with fixed dropdown view, with some minor changes. You could download it free from WordPress Extended. If you face any issue report bug in Plugin support page or in this blog.
I wrote about W3 Total Cache 0.9.2.7 issue, which caused few issues including MaxCDN custom domain name not working. Frederick, the plugin author was fast enough to release updated version 0.9.2.8, but it caused a Fatal error like below, and here I will show a quick workaround to fix the issue.
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'FileOperationException' with message '<strong>/public_html/wp-content/w3tc-config/master.php</strong> could not be created, please run following command:<br /><ul><li><strong style="color: #f00;">chmod 777 /public_html/wp-content/cache/tmp</strong></li><li><strong style="color: #f00;">chmod 777 /public_html/wp-content/w3tc-config</strong></li>' in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/inc/functions/activation.php:127 Stack trace: #0 /public_html/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/ConfigWriter.php(159): w3_throw_on_write_error('/...', Array) #1 /public_html/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/Config.php(71): W3_ConfigWriter->save() #2 /public_html/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/CloudFlare.php(174): W3_Config->save() #3 /public_html/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/lib/W3/Plugin/CloudFlare.php(52): W3_CloudFlare->update_ip_ranges() #4 /h in /public_html/wp-content/plugins/w3-total-cache/inc/functions/activation.php on line 127
This blog also use W3 Total Cache to handle caching. Few days ago W3 EDGE company behind this super popular (Downloads: 1,622,242) plugin pushed updated version 0.9.2.7. They actually introduced a revamp look and seems like a great update. But after update, Asif.im broke down completely, as MaxCDN, the Content Delivery Network(CDN) I use was not working with the updated version of W3TC. Here is a quick semi-fix.
Thanks everyone who was present, here is the slides. I will add more resource later.

How to Speed Up Your WordPress Website
If you just updated to current latest version of WordPress 3.4.2 and finds out the custom fields is not updating and broken you are not alone. Its happening for everybody. Its a known bug for WordPress 3.4.2. Here we have a quick fix before WordPress 3.4.3 arrive.
This is an updated version of old plugin “Social Profilr”. As that plugin never updated in last 3 year, but I loved it and was using it since release. But due to lack of update and support, I have updated it with new network support and some fix.
I am using this plugin in this site.
From Probably WordPress 2.7.1 there is auto update feature, so you don’t have to do it manually like long ago, and don’t have to use “WordPress Automatic Upgrade” plugin. Its nice and very cool feature to keep up-to-date and stay protected. But a lot people face problem to make it work. It fails to work as expected if there is file permission issue or something like file system issue. Now as WordPress 3.1 Released with a lot update, everybody should update to latest. Those who has Update error here I will talk about a simple solution.
