or I really can’t think of a good title!
Well I have been a little on the busy side so time for another absolutely amazing round up of the cool, the fun and just the plain daft SEO and others have to offer.
WordPress 2.6 guess what your going to upgrade!
Yes its that time when Automatic demonstrate they truly are a useless company and once more have punched another nail into WordPress already rather stuffed coffin when it comes to enterprise deployment. Don’t know what the fuss is about well wordpress.org sums up their entire philosophy in 2 lines.
2.6 is pretty much identical to 2.5 from a plugin and theme compatibility point of view, so upgrades from 2.5 should be pretty painless. The 2.5 branch will no longer be maintain so everyone is encouraged to upgrade. source:http://wordpress.org/development/2008/07/wordpress-26-tyner/
So expect a major security bug some time this afternoon to hit 2.5 to help encourage take up after all the article goes on to say…
1,984,047 downloads of the 2.5 series, the fastest growing release we’ve ever had!
Which was not in anyway influenced by the 3 major security bug scare stories going on at all.
Good WordPress News!
In case you have been living under a rock… Your Members the WordPress Membership Plugin was launched! Cheer for joy and go buy it, preferably in that order.
Also Sean who has been so busy working on YM that he forgot to speak to his other half for a week has released a rather handy stat plugin which keeps a list of recent visitors its incredibly lightweight and while won’t replace Google Analytics any time soon is great for seeing who is on the site right now. Check it and his blog out at sean-barton.co.uk
Yes its not enough they besmirch the name of Cornwall SEO by pretending they didn’t know that cunning baiter was telling stories now they have got into the widget game… But look who’s promoting ah mr Chow how nice of him…
Total aside but Melanie from Pro-Webs is offering a free white paper on landing pages that convert you never know it might be of use.
Stompernet goes lazy
Oh and in exciting news Andy Jenkins is going to tell the Stomper Newsletter if Traffic Secrets 2 is any good… Yawn I will save you the suspense he will say its absolutely amazing and you must buy it because he was blown away yada yada ultimately a rather pathetic attempt at encouraging sales which is a shame because the Stompernet team are normally a lot less obvious and tend to put time or at least perceived time into their marketing and promotional efforts.
Hopefully I will return with something more serious in a while, but I leave you with this…
If my first link is described as a fruit while the second a computer but both arrive at the same location am I a fruit, a computer, or just unclassified juice?
