WordPress School: Pageviews

A student trying to explain how WordPress Themes worked to another student used the following metaphor: Think of WordPress Themes like a poker hand. They are all cards but the value of the playing hand changes with each deal. She was right. There are 52 cards in a deck, four suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts, spades), […]

Blog Exercises: Know Your Pageviews

In this Blog Exercise, it is time to learn some website jargon, specifically, what are all the web pages of your site called. I teach web publishing with WordPress and web design courses at two colleges, and I’m stunned that students don’t know at the lack of proper names for all the parts of a […]

Are Web Page Link Previews Here to Stay?

According to Read/Write Web’s article, “Browster is Gone, But Are Web Previews Here to Stay”, the first company to produce programming to preview web pages is now gone, but there are many others battling for popularity on the web. I recently made my opinion very clear that I find Snap Preview Anywhere exceptionally annoying on […]

WordPress School: Posts and Pages

Let’s be Lorelle’s WordPress School with the two core content elements of WordPress: posts and Pages. By default, WordPress displays content in posts and Pages. Each behaves differently and distinctively in WordPress, and can confuse people easily. Let’s make this simple. Pages hold timeless content. Posts hold timely content. Please be patient with the videos. […]

Blog Exercises: The Welcome Page

One of the many things I’d like to see gone on the web is the Welcome front page. Think about it this way. You invite friends over for a party. You greet everyone at the door with a full self-introduction, welcoming them to your place, instructing them on how to visit your home, telling them […]

Blog Exercises: Page and Post Abuse

If you are on WordPress, you are familiar with the concept of Pages and Posts. If you are on another Content Management System (CMS), it is likely you have similar content with a different name. In WordPress, Pages, with a capital P, are pseudo-static web pages on your site. They exist outside of the reverse […]

Are You Abusing Your WordPress Pages – and Your Blog?

Here are two of the most important definitions you need to know about your WordPress blog: Post: An article published within a blog and displayed in chronological order within multi-post pages such as the front page, category, searches, archives, tags, and other page views. Page: A pseudo-static web page which holds content on a blog […]

Well, after writing about how to create this Weekly Digest Post here, and announcing that the next issue would be skipped, returning after WordCamp 2007, I didn’t anticipate being so from civilization on my way up the California and Oregon coast.

Showing Dates Not Just Times in Your Multi-Post Views

Occasionally when I’m searching the web, I’m looking for timely information such as articles on WordPress 2.1 not WordPress 1.5. Information on the latest version of WordPress would be dated within the past two months or so. Anything before that probably covers early versions of WordPress and wouldn’t apply to the topic I’m seeking. More […]

The Rant Against Multiple Page Posts

WordPress and other blogs, as well as many websites, can use a feature known as multiple page posts, slicing up a long post into more than one “page”. While this may seem like a smart idea, it sucks. How many times have you been frustrated arriving on a web page looking for information only to […]
