WordPress Wins “Open Source CMS Awards 2009”

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.”

WordPress Theme Authenticity Checker

WordPress.org host most GPL based Themes, but we use lots theme from different source. And stories are sometime true, some WordPress theme really contains risky code and malicious code which might be harmful. So it would be better if we could test Theme Authenticity somehow.

TAC(Theme Authenticity Checker) is a WordPress Plugin, TAC stands for Theme Authenticity Checker. Currently, TAC searches the source files of every installed theme for signs of malicious code. If such code is found, TAC displays the path to the theme file, the line number, and a small snippet of the suspect code. As of v1.3 TAC also searches for and displays static links.

Check Screen Shot below.

Check My Live Alexa State Page:
http://www.alexa.com/siteinfo/asif.im

The confusing part is how they are deciding the country to show. In my exploration i find out its showing the country where that specific site have better rank. Like for Asif2BD.info, it has Alexa rank of 750 in Bangladesh so its showing Bangladesh. But when i was exploring more i find out, its showing USA for facebook, where FaceBook.com have Rank 3 in USA, but Facebook has rank 1 in Bangladesh, but its still showing USA as showing country, so it seems its consider origin country too, like where its owner information or where is its server.

Google PageRank Update in Motion: Q2 Sep, 2009 Coming

Its not confirmed news, but after Caffeine update, its might be in motion. Last update was around February, 2009. Its already about 7 Month, Means 210+ Day.
And main reason is we are sensing some change in PR among BlogSpot Blog. We generally know BlogSpot blog got PR update frequently then sites. But Depending on few source and community feedback BlogSpot Blog's PR changing. Most possibility is Google Changing some algorithm, they might be considering Yahoo LinkBack with more priority.
So People fasten your set-belt, PR update might come in 24-72 Hr. And might last time, for sometime all PR server might starts to fail and showing 0 PR for most site. Just dont worry. Exact PR will come to your site in time.

BTW i Think Best PR checking Site is – http://LinkX.In/pr
