In the growth of the Internet, various challenges have been encountered. One of those is a battle between censorship and free speech, particularly in the context of material potentially inappropriate to certain audiences. I just brought my site, at least the WordPress-driven part of it, into the modern era of ICRA labeling.
If you searched for me online, you might not find a clear home for me. You would find my Facebook profile, my personal site, my MySpace profile, and more. The point is that there is a lot of duplication out there.
In the prior incarnation of my site, I had a 404 handler that reported broken links to me so that I can set up an appropriate redirection to the intended content. Until today, that functionality was missing in WordPress. However, I found a plugin that brings that functionality to WordPress.
Portions of the site now come through the Coral CDN. That should ehlp the page load faster.
This is a test using a different plugin that updates social network statuses through Ping.fm. This plugin seems like a keeper for now.
This is a second test of a Facebook notifier plugin. I decided I did not like this plugin.
I installed a plugin to push status updates to Twitter and Facebook and so forth. This is a test to see if it is configured correctly. I decided I did not like this plugin.
I’ve explored some WordPress plugins so far and have decided that a good plugin does one thing well instead of trying to do many things. If a plugin deals with adding keywords to posts, then that should be all it does. It should not deal with adding descriptions or anything else. This means I’m going to be more skeptical of using ‘all in one’ sorts of plugins in the future.
Since migrating to WordPress, I’ve done a few things to enhance the experience.
