My blog need to go social world, so I decided to put social button.
One of most easy and popular way to add social buttons is addthis widget.
There’s plugin already developed for wordPress.
I searched new plugin, addthis.
And click Install New > Active button.
Go to settings, you need to activate per position.
By default, social sites are showing not popular one, facebook and google+ didn’t show, so I clicked “select your own”, then it shows facebook, twitter etc.
I hope this buttons drive some more traffic.
So I have searched for it.
There’s Enlighter plugin which makes codes beautiful.
Before enable the plugin, looked plain text. And codes are always messed up. After publish, the new line disappeared and even codes are changed. Like this…
And after plugin enabled.
Looks cool, huh?
Also it provides plain text with popup and we can hide line number as well.
While I was searching for syntax highlighter plugin, I found WYSIWYG beautifier as well.
We need two plugins enabled. CodeMirror File Editor and HTML Editor Syntax Highlighter.
This makes edit text using text field a lot easier.
It shows like this.
What a colorful world!
Google analytics is good tool for analyzing visitors. But also I want to monitor visitors per posting.
So I installed Post Hit Counter WordPress Plugin.
- Go to plugin > Add a new. Search for Post Hit Counter. Click install and activate.
I can see the hits per post.
Keep simple and make it work!
After my blog launched several people are commented on my blog.
I am happy to get some respond from my reader.
By the way, there’s also unwanted visitors – spam robot or human spammer. This is getting annoyed.
To block these spam comments, I installed free plugin called WP-SpamShield.
- Go to Plugins > Add a new, search for WP-SpamShield. Click Install and make it Active.
- Config the settings from Settings > WP-Spamshild menu
- Configure some settings like log.
I will see if this helps. Go away flies!
Updates: Looks like this plugin works good. I don’t see spam comments anymore. Recommend to you.
When WordPress installed, the url is not customized for Search engines.
Here’s how to make each post url friendly.
- Go to Settings > Permalinks.
- Select post name
Now url changed like this.
How beautiful it is.
