AddToAny is one of a multitude of plugins that allow you and your readers to share your content.
There is a bug in WordPress associated with unwanted breaks (<br />) being created after shortcode expansion which causes formatting problems. This post attempts to document a number of possible workarounds.
In Plugins in a WordPress one-page Wonder (Nov 2010) I documented the set of plugins that Bobbing Wide install and configure by default in our [WOW] ([WoW]) websites.
In this post we’ll list a few more.
If you have the LTW Testimonials plugin and you want to show just the testimonials from a particular group then you use the shortcode displayed on the groups page. e.g. [ testimonial group=”2″]
Using the ltw-testimonials plugin you can show random testimonials in a widget.
And to “show all testimonials on a page” you use the [ show_all_testimonials] shortcode.
Until recently, just under a month ago, I always used Firefox when I wanted to do screen captures of my websites. Then I heard that there was a version of Fireshot for Google Chrome. So I switched over. You know what’s coming next.
This is part 3 of my attempts to find out what techno-babble is required to get Linked In to follow my blog.
In Part 1 of this rather ridiculous investigation… ridiculous since it should be so b. obvious but I can’t find the simple help… I messed about with doing the Linked In #hashtag just about everywhere in the post except the body.
This is an attempt to discover what was meant by the sentence that said
Once added, you can filter your posts with a special Linked-In tag
something like that… I’ve changed the Linked In tag so I don’t use it in the body of this post
then I check to see if Linked In detects it in my feed.
I daren’t link back to my original post in case it finds the special tag in the link.
Well here goes. No categories, no tags, nothing. So I expect to see nothing on my inked In profile.
Test 1 successful
And lo and behold I didn’t, until I ticked the checkbox to see all recent posts, when it showed
Test 2 – does it look at the image file name?
Now, let’s try again. The file name of the image may be enough.
Test 2 response. Apparently not.
Test 3 – what if I add a post tag?
First without the #. Nope nothing
Test 4 – add the Post Tag as a #hashtag
Nope nothing. But then the question is where did the #go. It’s not shown in the tag cloud?
Test 5 – is it case sensitive then?
Well probably not.
[bong] or [fob], it’s not what we want to see! Here are three problems I saw today. The second and third were uncovered while trying to understand the first!
If you’ve got a WordPress website, hosted on WordPress.com or on your own WordPress implementation (like this one) then it’s very easy to get your blog’s posts to show up in LinkedIn.
