Yeah, I know… Once again I have been very lazy in updating the blog. But hey, at least I’m not giving up on the blog. So, today I just discovered a brand new but very useful WordPress plugin for all those you like to post images on their blog and hate to edit each and every image to add watermarks to it.
Now, there’s the Image Watermark plugin from the WP repository (which means installation is as easy as finding the plugin in your admin area and clicking Install). It allows you to easily add watermarks to all your pictures uploaded in the WordPress Media Library. You can basically have a custom watermark image that you can position on your pictures and preview it before posting.
It also has a few other features to discourage people from easily coping your pictures. It can disable right click or copying via drag and drop, etc…
That’s if for now folks. Go check the plugin out if this is something you have been looking for.
Almost everyone online is on one or more of the social networking sites out there. If someone says he does not know what Facebook is, the only reason for that would be because he has been living in a cave since the last few years :P. Unlike this caveman, I have profiles on many of these social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Digg, Youtube, etc. So, I was looking for an easy way to connect my blog with these social media, and I found this great WordPress plugin – Social Media Widget.
It took me just a few minutes to install the plugin and set it up to show the icons and links to my profile on the various social networks. The icons are available in different styles and sizes. Even though most of the social media sites are supported in the plugin, you can also add a few custom URL of your own. You can see it in action on my sidebar, it looks something like this:

Go check it out on the WordPress Plugin Directory for a full list of features.
How are you doing? I hope you are doing great!
The last few days, I have been experimenting with a few WordPress plugins to automatically link a keyword in the posts/comments to a URL (a Web address). I need such a tool so that I don’t have to manually link the keywords when I am typing the post, and also to automatically change the links on all post if I need to.
I tested a few plugins, but apparently they have not been updated since a while and I was having problems making them work on the latest versions of WordPress. It’s really sad that some developers give up on upgrading their plugins. Well, we can’t blame them either, they are providing us with great tools and if no one supports them, sooner or later they will give up. So, if you like a WordPress plugin, and you want the developers to continue working on it, consider giving them a donation or at least spread the word around so that they get some visibility out there.
Anyways, here are the plugins that I came across that can (could) automatically link keywords to URLs:
But, the one that worked for me (so far) is:
- SEO Automatic Links (It’s easy to setup, easy to use and above all, it will make you some easy money if you use it well)
I hope you found some value in this post! WordPress is a great CMS (Content Management System) and if ever you are stuck with something, remember there is a WordPress community to help you out. You just need to ask!
