MobileChief is a new plugin being released by the folks at PluginChief. The goal of the plugin is to ease the process of creating a dedicated mobile site. I was approached by PluginChief about reviewing this new plugin, and I was intrigued. My idea of a mobile site is to grab a responsive theme, and call it a day. I’ve never much concerned myself with any sort of dedicated mobile offering. So I’m a bit of a novice in this area. Why don’t we go ahead and get the MobileChief plugin installed and see what we can accomplish – and while we’re at it, take a look at what else PluginChief has to offer.
It’s been a fun week here at VoodooPress. I’m pretty new to the whole reviewing thing. But I really enjoy learning about anything to do with WordPress, and I love passing the info to all of you. This time I was approached by the Infinite WordPress (InfiniteWP) folks to review their product. This is a new product, and I can definitely see a future here. I can tell you now, I’m keeping it installed, and I’m excited to see where this goes! If you are interested at all in a central way to manage your installs, read on! (Just a note, this is NOT a paid review – these are my honest thoughts after trying InfiniteWP out)
One of our readers suggested on twitter yesterday that we release a file of our settings for w3 Total Cache. Here’s the thing: I am NO expert on these things. I’m just beginning to experiment with caching. Up until recently I was on Godaddy, and Godaddy does not play nice with cache plugins… or a lot of things I discovered. Anyway, let’s take a look:
Well, I’ve checked out ManageWP for about a week now, so I feel I know my way around it well enough to give a bit of a review. I’ll start off by saying that if you run multiple sites, you might want to check this service out, it’s pretty cool.
So I’ve had the ManageWP ad running on my site recently as part of the PressedAds network. I like to knmow what I’m advertising, so I gave it a whirl. If this post works, it will appear on all of my sites simultaneously. If that works, I’ll be writing up a quick review shortly of the product. It’s definitely got some neat features.
Alright, this won’t be much of a tutorial per se. I’ve just been messing around a fair bit with a sh’load of code lately. I’m trying to overhaul my blog. Thing is, I’m not good at this stuff. I guess I’m not a designer. I can figure out how to code what I want… I just don’t know what I want. This is gonna take months. I figured I’d share some fun stuff as I make it up! So here is something for the popular wp-pagenavi plugin!
I’ve been experimenting a fair bit with these Android app maker services. There are quite a few that produce quality results. One thing to keep in mind, if you want a truly stunning custom app, you’ll have to learn to make one, or pay somebody. It’s just too much for a plugin or website to handle, especially for free. That being said, I made an app using the JoeMobi service/plugin, and I’m pretty happy with it! Here’s the gig:
I recently saw something about JoeMobi scroll by on my Google reader. It said the service was a quick way to make an Android app with your WordPress content. I wanted to give it a try real quick. It’s actually pretty cool. Nothing super special, but it presents all the VoodooPress content neatly, and I like it. Even my code samples are presented nice and neat. Scan the code or download the .apk file here! I’ll write a bit more about the whole process soon, in case you are interested.
Not that long ago, I posted a little shout out for some help dealing with spam registrations. Between my personal blog, and VoodooPress, I was getting hammered. Well Ryan Imel stopped by with a little suggestion I hadn’t even considered. 2 words: Gravity Forms. Let me break it down for you.
I’m going to borrow a page from Otto, and discuss a functionality plugin again. I hope you’ll read this article all the way through. I fully intend to help you make your WordPress life so much easier. We’re going to make a site-specific plugin, and I’ll even give you the bare bones for free! I avoided making my plugin for years, and realize how painful that made everything. These plugins are amazingly easy, and essential really.
