Different Post Per Page – WP Plugin

Another wordpress plugin that I found to be useful for this site is the Different Post Per Page plugin by MaxBlogPress. This is a real handy tool which allows you to set the amount of post which show up on your category and home page. This worked great for us because I only wanted show one post on the home page but at least 10 or more under the categories and search pages, this tool helped us to that. You can also set the number of post on subcategory pages as well.

To install the plugin upload it to your plugins folder and activate it, the plugin comes with its own setup page which I like. I think the only thing that I do not like that much is the process it takes to activate the plugin and the amount of emails that come after you have registered. The offers are not bad I would just like to less of them. Either way, I think this is a great plugin and worth installing. If you want your category, search pages and archives to each have their set amount of post then this is the tool that will get it done for you.

You can download the lastest version of the plugin here. Enjoy.

WordPress HTML File Extensions

One of most annoying things I see on websites is when the pages do not end with an seo friendly url, you know the ones than end with numbers or ? marks and kinda look this http://www.xyz.com/press/releasedetail.asp?pressid=5. I just can’t figure out why people don’t take the time to fix this or at least find someone who knows how to fix it for them. When switching this site to the wordpress format I wasn’t sure if you could make the urls end in .html, reason being is because I hadn’t seen any that did, most would just end with say ‘site.com/contact/. Now there is nothing with that format but I prefer to have pages end with some kind of file extension.

In wordpress you can write a permalink structure for all post to end in .html, however this does not work if you create Pages, not sure why they set it up that way but that’s just the way it is. So if you want all of your pages and post to end in a .html format then follow the instructions below: Read more…

The Space Elevator

The 2009 Space Elevator Conference, being held at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond, Washington, begins this week. Hundreds of scientists, researchers, and space enthusiasts from all over the world will gather together and brainstorm about the challenges of building an elevator to space.

When I first heard about this idea I thought is was rather silly, after all, what would be the purpose of having an elevator that goes all the way up into space? Of course I am not a science geek and therefore do not fully understand all of the ends and outs or even the benefits that come with it. But according to Read more…
