WPWeekly Episode 40 – Keith’s Farewell

wordpressweekly1Episode 40 of WordPress Weekly discussed a wide range of topics from the release of WordPress MU 2.7 to the All In One SEO Plugin reaching one million downloads. Also sad to say that this was Keith Murray’s last episode as co-host. I wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

Special Announcement:

Kym Huynh co-host of the WordPress centric podcast, WordCast was in a terrible car accident. Kym was in the middle of a three week vacation celebrating his recent graduation from law school when he ended up in a bad car accident. Unfortunately, Kym suffered quite a few broken bones and now has a metal arm. Dave Moyer of DaveMoyer.org, producer of show published an email he received from Kym earlier today that can be read on the DaveMoyer.org website. I personally wish Kym a fast and speedy recovery. Please visit DaveMoyer.org to find out how to send your get well wishes to Kym.

Does The Post Revisions Feature Need To Be Revised?

WordPress Tavern Listener Poll:

Each week from now on, I’ll be featuring a new listener poll question on WPTavern.com The poll is located in the sidebar on the right hand side of the site.

This weeks poll question was: Has the visual post editor ever made you angry?

Out of a total of 22 votes, 20 of you said yes while only 2 of you voted no.

Next Weeks Poll Question Is: Do you think configuration options need to be added to WordPress to configure Post Revisions?

Plugin Picks Of The Week:
JeffRevision Control – Revision control gives users control over post/page revisions. With it, you can choose a blog-global setting which is found in SETTINGS – REVISIONS in the WordPress administration panel for pages/posts to enable/disable or limit the number of revisions which are saved per post/page. This setting can even be controlled on an individual level since the revision control shows up as a meta box in the WordPress Write Panel.

KeithTweetSuite – TweetSuite is one of the most complete plugins available for Twitter-minded individuals. The tool allows for all the usual twitter features that we’ve come to expect (tweet my post, widget my tweets) but goes further: widget for favorite tweets, and most importantly TWEETBACKS. Becoming as important as trackbacks from other blogs are tweetbacks. When someone tweets your post with one of the major URL shortening services (tinyurl, is.gd etc) TweetSuite will find that tweet and add a tweetback to your post. Super cool. If you’re into twitter and have a blog, TweetSuite is a must-have.

Announcements: The next episode of WordPress Weekly will have a new co-host. Who will it be? Tune in to find out.
