WP Theme is a test blog created by engtech @ Internet Duct Tape.com
Whenever a new theme is released for wordpress.com I set this blog to use the theme so that people can get an idea of what it looks like and how it can break.
It started as part of my WordPress.com Theme Reviews series, but that has fallen to the wayside as it takes several hours to review themes and there isn’t a wide audience for it.
Don’t forget to checkout my list of WordPress.com Tips and Tools.
- Is your Akismet inbox filled to the brim with spam? Do you ignore it instead of checking for missed comments? You need Akismet Auntie Spam for WordPress.com.
- It is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox that greatly reduces the amount of text displayed on the screen.
- Moves navigation bar to the bottom instead of the top.
- Reduces text size.
- Truncates long comments.
- Click to open a popup with full comment.
- With Akismet Auntie Spam you can go from 3-6 comments per screen of text to 17-20 comments per screen of text.
- Too many categories getting you down? Tired of only being able to look at 10 or 12 categories at once? You need the WordPress Category Resizer.
- It is a Greasemonkey script for Firefox that moves the category list when editting/creating posts.
- The categories are moved underneath the text box.
- Three columns are displayed at once with no scrollbar.
- Adding new categories still works.
Want to display all of your categories/tags on a single page as a tag cloud? You need my Tag Cloud Generator for WordPress.com program.
- Tag Cloud Generator connects to your WordPress.com account, downloads information about your tags/categories and generates HTML code you can cut-and-paste into a blog post or a blog page. It’s not as simple as running a plug-in, but it is the only solution available for WordPress.com bloggers who want a tag cloud other than using the sidebar image.
- It will let you control the colours and the height of the text even if you don’t have the CSS upgrade!
- It works with any WordPress or WordPress Multi-User blog, including WordPress.com, Blogsome.com, and edublogs.org
