There are a bunch of WordPress plugins that claim to make your blog mobile friendly but after looking through a couple of them the WP-PDA plugin is the best. This plugin support multiple themes such as an iPhone theme and a PDA theme. The cool thing about this is the iPhone and Touch display things…
It is fairly easy to add Google Adsense ads to the WP-PDA plugin for WordPress. If you follow the easy steps below you will have Google ads showing up in no time with WP-PDA. You will be required to edit the source code for the WP-PDA WordPress plugin so make sure to back things up before you start. One thing to note is the fact that you can only have one Google Mobile Adsense ad at a time currently.
Adding Google Adsense Ads for WP-PDA iPhone/Touch Browsers:
- Backup Files: Backup any file before you attempt to modify it.
- Create Google Adsense for Mobile: Visit this link and follow the instructions to create the Google Adsense ad for your mobile content. Be sure to specify PHP for the last step.
I have been playing around with Tiltview for the past couple of days which is an addition to a WordPress plugin called NextGen FlashViewer. Let me start by saying that even though I had a couple problems when starting out the combination of NextGen Gallery, NextGen Flashviewer, and Tiltview is one of the coolest combinations I have seen. It actually is fairly easy to get going and surprisingly when configured properly is not a huge CPU and memory hog. If you have configuration errors as mentioned below it can clearly be a PC resource monster. You definitely can see it taking up some memory but most client PC’s have plenty to handle Tiltview style applications these days. If you have something configured incorrectly as I mention below it wil easily crash browsers and possibly lock up the entire PC. My 1.8 GHz Windows XP laptop with 2GB of RAM was on its knees begging for mercy during troubleshooting the issues I explain below.
I have a couple people who write articles from time to time sand after installing WP Block Admin they were unable to get to wp-admin anymore. Since we are only using three user levels on this site which are Admin, Author, and Subscriber. On install WP Block Admin is set to only allow Admin and Editor access to /wp-admin so you have to modify wp-content/plugins/wp-block-admin/wp-block-admin.php. Find the line like this:
$wpba_required_capability = ‘edit_others_posts’;
Change it to this:
I have been adding some additions to WordPress to lock it down a bit and keep regular users away from wp-admin. There is a bunch of stuff out there to do this type of thing but I found the best combination to upgrade your register/login system and to keep the average user away from wp-admin so they stay on the site was to use Register Plus and WP Block Admin. They both serve different purposes but combined together they provide a much nicer user experience.
Register Plus: This WordPress plugin will allow you to create custom emails to users, a custom registration form, a password strength meter, a captcha, user registration verification emails, and more. When creating the custom registration form you can add custom fields, add custom CSS, etc. All in all in provides complete customization of the registration form and process.
