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 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.
As some of you already know TheTechJournal.com Redesign has begun. TheTechJournal.com team with our developer working together. During this time of development today i have implemented the “All Posts By Author Link”. Its simple and easy implementation, using Core WordPress Function. But most theme maker and coder seems don’t understand its importance. Actually its a mandatory feature for multi Author blog/site.

Here it comes again. WordPress wins Overall Best Open Source CMS Award in the 2009 Open Source CMS Awards. Its not a best blogging platform award, its awarded for best CMS award. Now those people who always question me why me and my company dedicately work on WordPress should get answer.
Yesterday Matt Announced at this post WordPress Wins CMS Award.
He expressed his joy saying “Yatta!” like Hiro Nakamura from Ppular TV Show “Heroes”.
Quot from Matt’s post
In addition to winning in the Overall Best Open Source CMS category, WordPress was named first runner-up in the Best Open Source PHP CMS category. This is significant because we weren’t even in the top 5 last year, and now we’re #2, ahead of Joomla! As is stated on the Award site, “WordPress made its way into the top five for the first time. The fact that it was outranked by Drupal by a very slight margin indicates how popular it has become with users as well as developers over the past year.”
I am not obsessed with Twitter, but i like the idea of Micro Blogging. Sometime its fairly a lot easy to write our thoughts in short. But twitter’s 140 Letter limit is a bit troubling. But still Twitter is rocking, i acquired the domain Twitty.im. So had plan to make something like twitter but without those limit. And my plan is to make multi platform blogging with some extended facility, and i want it closed group at first.
I was searching a bit. I fund few scripts and module for Making Micro Blogging Site. I think those are the best available solution for making Micro Blogging site. I am testing all of them.
Here are all script -
I am big time WordPress Enthusiast. The GPL announcement just came in front, read here.
In short For theme is just like “PHP in WordPress themes must be GPL, artwork and CSS may be but are not required.”
So now commercial GPL themes are official. I already decided to go with this. My company ARCom will work by GPL and we will convert all of our work in GPL pretty soon. Some Work might be under Commercial GPL too.
But issue comes with plugins development. As My Buddy Matt or WordPress said nothing about commercial Plugins.
Yes, plugins needs to be treated same as Themes, though me & my company mainly working on themes, but we did lots of work on Plugins and functionality. Most of the commercial Plugins are very complex. Themes are just the look, the front end. Plugins is the module that create various lovely functionality. We create those functionality with Plugin.
Matt understands all of it. We all love him. His understanding in finance is different, like the idea of enterprise Akismet. He love it in that way. Give everything free, if somebody need extended he could hire a developer or hire the creator. That’s why all GPL.
Yesterday i got this notification from matt. That WordPress.com owner company Automattic now the pwner of WP.com.He posted in his blog about this acquisition. Its great to know that they could come to an understanding with yahoo guys.
Here is My Plan about what to do with wp.com
#Start a classy email service, you could offer free email service to those who already have wordpress.com account with that username.
#Make a all-in-one wordpress and Automattic portal in its homepage. Like make a platform, a single platform so people could access email, wordpress.com account, infos and all link + download section of wordpress.org.
# Also in home page a easy to access all other stuffs from Automattic, like BuddyPress, bbPress and all other project.
# Extended the news section, with something like news.wp.com and post exclusive news not only directly related with wordpress but also about this internet industries. We could also make something like which could grab buzzing news from our whole network of wordpress.com, i think there might be some legal way to do this as like google doing worst with its news section.
And any more suggested, i also had some more tips to give, but time is short now, its already 04:52 AM here.
But if you people agree and our goal is projected, i think we could try to compete the internet king with this wp.com itself.
