Collapsible Sidebar Lists Plugin for WordPress

C

A previous theme I used for this site incorporated For some while this site’s been using the collapsible sidebar lists I described in this post. This method requires manually adding PHP and Javascript to the theme’s code. All a bit clunky really.

I’ve finally completed a plugin which provides the same functionality, but in a far more convenient way. The collapsible lists currently displayed in this site’s sidebar are generated by this plugin.

Possible Cause of WordPress Jetpack Plugin Pagination Error

P

Back in July 2011 I noticed a problem with the Jetpack plugin and page navigation. In short, with the Jetpack plugin activated page navigation worked only if I was logged-in as admin. When logged-out page urls were being incorrectly re-written and causing 404 Not Found errors.

I never did get to the bottom of the issue I was having with the Jetpack plugin and page navigation in WordPress. So, it seemed I would either have to do without site statistics provided by the Jetpack plugin or this site would have to forego page navigation.

I’ve been using site statistics provided WordPress.com for some time. The popular posts widgets in the sidebar and on single post pages rely on these statistics to display this site’s most viewed posts and pages.

inFocus WP Theme: Customising WP-PostViews and Efficient Related Posts Plugins

i

Since switching to WordPress I’ve been using the WP-PostViews and Efficient Related Posts plugins. Although the inFocus theme I use now comes with its own popular posts and related posts widgets I much prefer the functionality of the aforementioned plugins.

For example, WP-PostViews displays popular posts based on post views whereas the inFocus version uses the number of comments to determine a post’s popularity. And while there appears to be little if any difference in how Efficient Related Posts and the inFocus version determine related posts, the latter does so on-the-fly whereas the former pre-determines them, thus reducing the load on the server.
