WordPress Fireworks Plugin

2008-12-11

This plugin shows fireworks on your WordPress blog. I think it's pretty stable by now, although the images still aren't that nice. If you're a designer and you like this plugin, feel free to submit nicer explosions or rockets. You should be able to see the fireworks on this page. … more

Different titles for WordPress blog page and static front page

2008-12-05

I was a little surprised when I realized that wp_title() doesn't return the page title for a static WordPress front page or the blog page. I don't like that, because I want at least the blog page to have a label. Something like... blog :-D or maybe news. So I … more

Mailman, HTTP POST and 301 redirects

2008-11-09

After changing my domain configuration a little (do 301 redirects from nkuttler.de to www.nkuttler.de/ etc.) I noticed that my mailman web interface stopped working. I tried to moderate, change settings etc., but once the form was submitted nothing happened. After some digging I found the problem: 301 redirects don't pass … more

WordPress 2.7 and the comment pager

2008-11-04

Comment paging is a great new feature in WordPress 2.7. However, how do you not display the pager when there are no previous or next comments? After digging through the code for quite a while and chatting with some people here's a solution: <?php if ( have_comments() ) { ?> … more

A Better Tag Cloud

2008-11-03

A Better Tag Cloud I was pretty annoyed with the default tag cloud widget. It does a lot of things wrong, like inconsistent HTML markup and hardcoded font sizes. So I wanted to write my own. Digging through the code I found out that the wordpress wp_tag_cloud() function is pretty powerful. In fact, it … more

Ozh admin menu and WordPress 2.7

2008-11-02

Update: I can not recommend the usage of this plugin any more. I was anxious to finally try out the wordpress 2.7 beta. As a happy user of Ozh's admin drop down menu I had to realize that the menus were completely gone in the backend. I was a little … more

mp3gain, normalizing and other things

2008-11-01

Recently my band made some recordings with a Zoom H2 Digital Recorder. Awesome machine btw. But it turned out that the recording wasn't loud enough. I probably messed something up when I configured it... Anyway, the recording was done, so how do I fix it? I had already encoded mp3s … more

About the CSS3 border radius property

2008-10-23

So I have decided to use the CSS3 border-radius property on some sites. They are personal projects so I don't care if they look a little worse on IE. After a few tweakings I've ended up with using things like this: #foo { border-radius: 8px 4px 4px 8px; -moz-border-radius: 8px … more

Typo3 in 15 minutes

2008-10-18

Ok, the title is a little exaggerated. You'll need to install Typo3 yourself and I assume that you can log into the backend. But if those are given, you're pretty close to creating your first Typo3 site. In the backend, go into the Web->Page view. Click on the small world … more
