If you use the Amazon Product In A Post Plugin on WordPress you might have either not upgraded yet or decided to not upgrade because the shortcode syntax has changed. You can get around not upgrading by updating the WordPress post content immediately after you upgrade the Amazon Product In A Post Plugin. Below I describe the version that I upgraded and the MySQL syntax used to update the shortcode syntax to display Amazon products in WP posts.
We use the Pretty Link Pro WordPress plugin, which is a bargain and can be purchased by clicking here, to tweet articles under the @questiondefense Twitter account. This not only is easy to do with Pretty Link Pro but it provides a great method of driving traffic to our articles here on Question-Defense.com. There have been numerous times when one of us forgets to check the tweet article checkbox in the Pretty Link Pro bucket from the Add New Post page when writing articles. The issue with that is the fact that once an article is published there is no tweet article button from the Edit Post page within WordPress. Below we describe the process of tweeting a post after it has been published in WordPress.
MapPress is a WordPress plugin that provides an interface to Google Maps and easily allows you to insert detailed Google Maps into WordPress posts or pages. We have a site that provides password auditing services called QD Tools and on the homepage there is a map that lists the city, state/province, and country of our customers. I have been using MapPress Pro for a long time because it offers lots of extra features and MapPress itself is such an awesome plugin I like supporting the developer. Anyhow the Google Map on the QD Tools homepage is has over 1,000 markers and continues to grow. I wanted to modify the default MapPress/Google Maps marker that was being used but there is no way in MapPress to retroactively change this so the instructions below explain how to do this.

Anyhow if comments are throwing an error and you have the SI Captcha Anti-SPAM WordPress plugin installed then the below content will assist you to resolve the problem.
I initially wrote an article about the Pretty Link Twitter Badge not displaying back in March of 2012 and it appears some things have changed since then. The issue in my case is a conflict between the Pretty Link WordPress plugin and Greg’s High Performance SEO WordPress plugin. Since the original article it appears that the GHPSEO has modified the location of a variable I modified to resolve the issue. Below is information on how to resolve.
