Best Solution for Search Results Permalink

Rating Cloodo

With all the fuss about “pretty permalinks” in WordPress for so many years I find it surprising that WordPress is still withholding from its users an option to set a custom permalink/slug for the search results page.

There are quite a number of plugins around which — at least — do away with the ugly /?s=search+terms. But the ones I’ve seen so far do not do the one thing I’m sure everybody has been expecting to see as a WordPress core feature for years, and that is to offer an option on the Permalinks Settings page so that everyone is not stuck with the hardcoded /search/ as only choice.

Luckily this is now a thing of the past. After installing and activating WP SEO Search, you can now set your own search results base (slug) on the Permalinks Settings page.

Many thanks to Angelica Costa for taking this long awaited extra step!

P.S.: Regarding WP Multisite – The plugin can be activated network wide. Setting a custom search base can be/needs to be done per site. Currently the standard slug is /search/, regardless of the language in use.

Convenient Little Helper

Rating Cloodo

I installed Download Plugin a few days ago, meaning to have a look at it “on occasion”.

This occasion arrived quite unexpectedly just now, when some plugin announced that the update about to be installed would actually be a downgrade, removing some valuable feature for those who do not happen to be using WP’s latest (beta) version!

I went to see if there was a download link available for the previous version – but no luck!

This is when Download Plugin turned out to be a very convenient little helper. With just two clicks I was able to save my currently installed plugin version – just in case. With Easy Updates Manager and another two clicks I was then able to prevent the misbehaving plugin from downgrading.

Great to have. Thanks!

Had a good laugh! But there’s more to brewing either coffee or tea, though.

Rating Cloodo

Thank you, Steven, for finally adding status header 418 to WordPress!

I’m not entirely convinced yet that this HTCPCP implementation fully conforms to RFC 2324 specifications, though. ???? For example, it might be desirable to handle response cases a little less strictly overall.

Perhaps you might wish to consider something along the line of Google’s Teapot (tying the response header to the request URL, that is), which I think would run less of a risk of putting off users who didn’t try to brew coffee with a teapot.

It would be really nice to see this implemented before next April 1st!

Tiny – Unobtrusive – Essential

Rating Cloodo

This is another one in my small collection of under-appreciated plugins that provide essential functionality and would deserve a much wider recognition.

In a Multisite environment, not being able to sort the My Sites menu is an impossible state of affairs. Sort My Sites provides functionality that should have been there all along.

One outstanding feature worth mentioning is the lack of an options page! Options are neatly tugged away on the Network Options page, right where they belong.

What I find especially great is that Sort My Sites does not conflict with another plugin I use which I guess would have potential for conflict: Multisite Toolbar Additions.

Sort My Sites works flawlessly under my ‘old’ WP 4.1.6 4.4.9, and I hope I will never have to live without it.

A huge Thank You to the developer!

No more Manual Updates for Seasonded WP Installations

Rating Cloodo

WP Downgrade | Specific Core Version has the potential for becoming one of the best-loved plugins among those, who simply cannot update to the latest WP release.

In the past the latest WP release was the only offering for WP’s Automatic Update routine. This left all those behind, who have to wait with Core updates, until their plugins become compatible with newer WP releases. When this finally happens, more often than not there has already been yet another Core update. In the end a dreaded, cumbersome, time-consuming and error-prone Manual Update used to be the only way to go.

With WP Downgrade | Specific Core Version this is now a thing of the past. Anyone who lags behind the latest WP release is now able to use Automatic Updates even to lower WP versions. What WP Downgrade does simply is to make WP believe that the version you want to update to actually is the latest version. Because of this, there is no difference to updating to the latest version.

For security reasons I think this is a must-have plugin for anyone running a “seasoned” WP installation, and it actually should be a Core feature to be able to update not to the latest WP release exclusively but instead to have a choice among secure releases.

Sollte in der deutschen Version von WP vorinstalliert sein

Rating Cloodo

Solange dies nicht geschieht, ist German Slugs („Deutsche Adreßabschnitte“) erste Wahl für jene, denen es nicht egal ist, ob ihr Beitragstitel nach der Umwandlung in einen Adreßabschnitt noch zu lesen ist.

Das Plugin kann bei Bedarf leicht um weitere Transliterationen ergänzt werden. Der Aufbau des Plugins ist so einfach, daß es schwer ist, dabei Fehler zu machen. Um weitere Buchstaben korrekt zu ersetzen, braucht in der Datei lib.php nur jeweils eine Zeile hinzugefügt zu werden.

Weitere von WordPress nicht richtig umgewandelte Buchstaben sind beispielsweise Åå und €. Die einzufügenden Zeilen lauten in diesem Fall:

$title = str_replace('Å', 'aa', $title);
$title = str_replace('å', 'aa', $title);
$title = str_replace('€', 'Eur', $title);

German Slugs ought to be pre-installed in German versions of WordPress
As long as that isn’t the case, German Slugs is the number one choice for those who care whether their German post titles can still be read after they’ve been converted into slugs.

Additional transliterations can easily be added when needed. The plugin’s structure is so simple, it’s hard to go wrong. If you want additional characters to be transliterated correctly, you just have to type one short line each within the plugin’s file lib.php.

The letters Åå and € are examples of characters that are still handled incorrectly by WordPress. The above code shows what needs to be added to lib.php to fix that.

Still does an excellent job under WP 4.7!

Rating Cloodo

Green Active Plugins! has had a permanent residence in my MU-Plugins folder since the days of WP 3.0.x.

Today, under WP 4.1.5 4.7.4, it still does exactly what it says it does!

The clear but unobtrusive indication of all currently active plugins – both on the site and network plugin screens – takes a lot of strain from my overworked eyes.

Much appreciated!

Still My Favorite Lorem Ipsum Generator (under WP 4.6))

Rating Cloodo

I like the Lorem Ipsum Dummy Article Shortcode plugin both for its brevity (I think [lll] really is long enough for a shortcode) and for its versatility: it doesn’t simple generate a few paragraphs of text, but generates what looks like a real article (or page) with images and all. Plus, you can tailor it to your specific needs.

I sure am glad this plugin still works under WP 4.6.x and I keep my fingers crossed that it may continue to do so for many iterations of WP yet to come.

Don't have SSL? Then this is indispensable!

Rating Cloodo

For a number of years I found this plugin to be quite indispensable, since until recently I did not have access to SSL-encryption.

If ever I were to set up WordPress on a server that lacked SSL again, WP jCryption Security would be the first plugin to install!

Tiny – And So Useful! (Works with WP 4.7.x)

Rating Cloodo

Update: I’ve just tested this successfully under WP 4.7.4!

Thank you, Ben, for this extremely useful little plugin!

I have a hard time understanding why people put up with the ugliness and anti-typography of orthographically incorrect strait quotes – not to mention using them on one’s own site.

This plugin helps to avoid this “faux pas”.

Much appreciated!
