Gravity Forms: Submission Timestamp

We recently purchased Gravity Forms for doing some client projects and it’s fantastic… I thought I’d got everything I need but there was one thing it didn’t do that really surprised me, in the notification emails there was no way of getting the exact time the submission button was hit! This really surprised me, this seems like one of the most obvious things you’d want to know. Support were fantastic and answered my query in just a few minutes, it has to be done with a hook (this still surprises me!), so here you go: First create a hidden field in your form, we’ll use a hook to fill this in after submission. Add the following to your functions.php function… Continue reading »

Changing WordPress Permalink Structure!

If you can see this, all has gone well – if you can’t I’m probably talking to myself (nothing unusual there!!). My current permalink structure has not sat well with me for the last year or so, it’s kind of thrown together and doesn’t look particularly nice… I’ve been itching to change it, but never dared (after all this blog has a reasonable PageRank and gets a decent amount of traffic!). The time has come to bite the bullet. I know what you’re saying: “Just go ahead – change the damned things – why should we care?” Well it’s not quite that simple, changing them has a few knock on effects: All my internal links to older posts referencing them… Continue reading »

3 Spam Comments!

I normally login to my admin site to find “Spam: 3,472” comments (or some such other high and random number!!). Confession time. I broke my blog last week whilst doing an upgrade (trying to auto-upgrade post suPHP being activated may have been a mistake) and it forced me to audit my plugins. I’ve always like the idea of Akismet, group filtering etc. However I spotted some of the comments over at the WP-SpamFree plugin page and decided I’d got nothing to lose (other than a lot of time wasted looking at comment spam! Installed earlier in the week and 3 days later I have JUST 3 Spam comments… Elizabeth: The Golden Age psp I’m a happy man – Matt you… Continue reading »

Posting YouTube Videos (Again!)

You may remember many moons ago, I posted about what a bind it could be to put YouTube videos into WordPress Blogs (because WordPress got all excitable and corrected the HTML). Today I discovered a post from Caroline about a plugin that does the job! Wassup Rockers rip YouTube Brackets means that to insert a video I now do this: [ youtube=xxxxx] Where xxxxx is the URL of the video! This is the video posted yesterday about RFID cloning and how it was tagged! [ youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9isKnDiJNPk] And I can now insert this video that made me laugh yesterday: [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0_fPV13lKm4]

Reading Material

I like a good book as much as the next man, in fact sometimes more so – Emma nearly shot me on holiday when I was reading just over a book per day! – Thank goodness for our resort in the Dominican Republic’s extensive library! buy The Ant Bully photo credit: stephenrwalli The problem is I like a lot of the action ones (mostly be a few authors), and sometimes I get to the point where I forget what I’ve read. This can be a real pain the backside when I go to see “Book Man”. “Book Man” is a chap at a local market who runs a book stall, he’s fantastic and we always pay him a visit before… Continue reading »

OpenID with your own WordPress URL!

I went to post a comment on a website today, it was a Blogger one (I always dread this – it’s just not as easy as commenting on a WordPress blog is it?). This particular user had chose to allow comments from: Registered Google Accounts OpenID users I usually just select the anonymous option and fill in the form, like I would a WordPress form – that was a non-starter. I don’t want a WordPress hosted WordPress blog, so I need to do something else… I want my own OpenID! Then I found eric’s post on Using your own WordPress URL as an OpenID! A quick download and activation of the OpenID Delegate WordPress Plugin, an account created with myOpenID… Continue reading »
