FPW Honey Pot Links plugin

Featured Image

This plugin is for administrators who joined Project Honey Pot to fight comment spammers and e-mail harvesters by installing honey pots (traps). Adding a honey pot to posts / pages requires a special invisible link being inserted into post's / page's content. This can be done manually by pasting the code of this link into posts / pages. It is not a big deal with new posts but on existing installations with thousands of posts and pages it is a nightmare. The plugin automates the process providing bulk addition of honey pots to existing posts / pages ( bulk removal is provided also ). It inserts the link's code ( if the code does not exist already ) to the content when you publish or update a post as well. Click on a link above this post to see the plugin in WordPress repository.

Some people hate it and some love it. I belong to the second category. If you, as a webmaster, don't like it, simply do not enable theme support for post formats. I think that post formats bring incredible possibilities to website presentation.

Basic requirements: WP 3.1, theme support, knowledge of CSS and WP filters, imagination, and creativity.

FPW Category Thumbnails plugin

Featured Image

Setting featured image for post/page could be very time consuming, especially when your media library holds hundreds of pictures. Very often we select the same thumbnail for posts in particular category. Wouldn't be much easier to have a thumbnail being set automatically when we choose a category while creating or updating posts/pages? I could not find in wordpress.org repository any plugins doing exactly what I wanted and decided to write my own. It started as a plugin just for myself. Exactly 12 lines of code. Then I decided to share it with others. And here it is - FPW Category Thumbnails. Click on a link above this post to see the plugin in WordPress repository.truculent-ending

Using fonts hosted on your site

Featured Image

In Using Google Font API article I've presented one method of incorporating specific fonts into your website. The Google's method will free you from any legal problems related to hosting unlicenced fonts, however, there are couple of drawbacks. Fonts have to be downloaded from Google's servers and that takes time. Secondly, there are only 14 fonts available as of today.

How about hosting your own fonts?
