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 Plugin – DB Cache Reloaded

DB Cache Reloaded

I have tried a number of cache plugins for wordpress, but DB Cache Reloaded has been the best one so far. It caches SQL database requests rather than whole pages, which is how WP Super Cache works, using less memory. This plugin CAN be used with WP Super cache if you really want to, but i don’t recommend it.

DB Cache Reloaded is actually an improved version of the previous just “DB Cache”, I think the reason for the new version is because of that the creator stopped supporting and developing the plugin.

WordPress Tutorial – Step by Step on how to blog using WordPress.com

A great tutorial on how to set up a blog using WordPress.com

However, i would recommend that you get your own web host and upload the WordPress “self-hosted” package to it, that way you will have so much more control over your blog. And you also get to upload much more richer content.

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!
