It’s been a while since WordPress implemented revisions for posts and pages. Being able to revert a post or page to a previous state is a useful feature. However, I recently realized that WP creates a revision of the content every time it is saved, but there is no upper limit for the number of [...]

The first time I used WordPress back in September 2005 I considered it to be the content publishing platform of choice as far as a personal or business website was concerned. It was easy to set up and publish content and, also, easy to customize, even with ugly hacks.
Web applications that add unnecessary HTTP headers or meta tags and links in the HTML HEAD section of my web pages usually make me nervous. Today, WordPress, once again, made me spend my free time trying to find which filters add such useless data in my web pages and try to remove it. Removing the [...]
This is just a quick notice that during the last five days there was a problem with the website feeds. The web server returned a 500 Internal Server Error to almost all requests for /feed/ URLs. Also, there was a big increase of the server’s CPU load behind the scenes, which was caused by php-cgi [...]
A while ago, I had published a step-by-step guide about how to install WP-Super-Cache in WordPress successfully. Now, I’m going through the upgrade procedure, so to safely and effortlessly upgrade the plugin whenever a new version is released.

It was about time I started using a cache in WordPress. After doing some research, I found out that WP-Super-Cache is sophisticated enough and works quite well, judging by the posts of many satisfied users. In this post I will outline the installation procedure step-by-step, because the installation instructions of the README file were a [...]
Syndicated content has almost become the standard way of distributing web content nowadays. WordPress can deliver its content in various different feed formats -RSS 2.0, Atom 1.0, RDF, RSS 0.92- and can generate feeds for both the published posts -grouped by time, category, tag, author etc- and the comments that have been submitted by readers.

Yesterday, I noticed that the template tag, which existed inside the default WordPress theme and added the Generator meta tag to the HTML head area, has been replaced by an internal action. This change makes the removal of that specific meta tag a bit harder for users. I can understand that the project may use [...]
Since WordPress v2.5, it is no longer possible to use the <!–more–> tag within a post in order to define an excerpt which will be used on both the web and feeds. Now, WordPress uses this tag to split a post for the web only, while the feeds can contain either the full-text or an [...]
