WordPress Plugin – Zemanta

If you are like me, and use WordPress for website or blogging purposes, you may want to add a link here and there for reference. But you find it tedious because you either have to add the HTML link tag manually or mark the text and click the “link button” in the WordPress post toolbar. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could do it for you? Well you’re in luck, because there’s a WordPress plugin for just that. And it’s called “Zemanta“.

Zemanta will scan you’r post and check any references that it recognizes, and then give you the option to add it as a link, it couldn’t be simpler! And it’s not just links, it’s also post tags and pictures!

You can get Zemanta by Clicking here or you can install it through the WordPress dashboard.

WordPress Total Cache Plugin

firebug-net

So, Cache means faster website ey? Well not in my case, the wordpress plugin “WP-Total cache” actually made my website slower! I was able to diagnose the problem using firebug, some CSS sheets tog a very long time to load, probably because they where cached some place, so i just disabled the plugin and POW!!! a super fast wordpress site!
