I embeded these YouTube Videos using Artiss YouTube Embed By David Artiss. It was a great Plugin for WordPress YouTube videos but it was taken over by another developer and it’s not as well liked any more. Besides which, with the new version of WordPress you can now embed YouTube videos automatically just by pasting the shortlink into a Page or Post.

Happy Birthday Blog (Oct 8th, 2012) This Blog is one year old today. Now I can use the SMALY Widget that I wrote for the SHH Blog on this Blog. You can see links to my one-year-old posts on the sidebar under "THIS TIME LAST YEAR".
Finally available in the WordPress Repository (Aug 29th, 2012) I went ahead and released this Widget as is. I was hoping to get a sponsor for it's release but it looks like it will just be another free plugin that I work on in my "spare" time.

I just figured out for myself, after not being able to get the deactivate_plugins function to work and not finding any helpful documentation on it, how to prevent my plugin from being activated under certain conditions.
My new workaround is to use die() in my register_activation_hook, under the desired condition. Now, I know you are not supposed to put any output in your register_activation_hook function, but it just works perfectly for me. It successfully stopped the activation of my plugin, and it even put the text from my die statement nicely into the box at the top that tells the user that the plugin could not be activated. I had also tried using wp_die() but it really did die with nothing on the screen but my message in a box. I liked it better just using die().
In my install function I put:
if (version_compare($wp_version, "2.6", "<"))
die("This Plugin requires WordPress version 2.6 or higher");
This way people can only install my plugin if they are not running a really old version of WordPress.

Now available in the WordPress Repository (Mar 26th, 2012) I just released my new Anti-Malware plugin for WordPress. It is still in BETA but I think it will be very helpful in removing malicious scripts and patching security vulnerabilities.
I’m working on an Anti-Malware plugin for WordPress. (Feb 23rd, 2012) I haven't posted anything this whole month because one of my servers got hacked and I've spent the last three week working on a new plugin to scan and remove malicious software from my server.
I used to use the Google XML Sitemapsplugin by Arne Brachhold for SEO. Then a friend got me to try out WordPress SEO By Joost de Valk and it seemed like a good SEO tool until I noticed today that it had duplicated my site name in the HTML header’s TITLE tag. After not finding any easy way to turn off that “feature” I just disabled the plugin and switched back to the Google XML Sitemapsplugin I used before. I works well and has all the features in need, plus it’s easy to configure, easy to use, has really good support documentation.

I found this cool plugin called Inline Google Spreadsheet Viewer By Mr. Meitar Moscovitz that lets you insert a Google Doc Spreadsheet into a Post or Page. The really cool part is that you can update the Google Doc and the page automatically reflects your changes. Here is an example spreadsheet.

I just setup this blog today so that I would have my own place to test stuff in WordPress. I think I’ll make an attempt to write something each day for at least the first month.
