The One About Seriocomic’s Collapsible Menus

Filed under: — Carthik @ 2:58 am

Seriocomic is one of the better designed WordPress weblogs in town. (No, you do _not_ click on the tab called “intercourse” on the horizontal menu. :) )

If you find the collapsible menu items in the menu on the right in his weblog, he provides details on how to implement the collapsible items. You have his permission and his stylesheet too.

Slow Down Spammer Boy!

Filed under: — Carthik @ 1:52 am

Spam Comments come in waves. Dougal helps you slow them down a bit, and then give them a piece of your mind.

Spammer Tar Pit is a plugin that checks whether comments are from known spammer IPs in the list in your comment moderation keys, along with the spam words you have. If there is a match, the plugin waits for some time and then gives the spammer an “access denied” message. You can change the wait time, as well as the message.

AdSense for Blogs

Filed under: — Carthik @ 1:26 am

Apparently,

chocolate is to peanut butter like AdSense is to blogs

Don’t worry if you can’t make too much sense of that. What matters is :

…set up your own Bloggerized AdSense account so that you make the money. What’s the catch? We’re going to take some of the action. Based on what we have learned from AdSense so far, this will work out very nicely for both of us. Please note that this program is optional and that it is not required for you to have a Blogger powered blog—all bloggers are invited.

So go ahead, read “There’s AdSense in My Blog!”, and start serving some ads, if you’d like to.

My blog got accepted though it had been rejected earlier.

BloGTK Blogs Using WordPress

Filed under: — Carthik @ 1:05 am

BloGTK is a weblog client that allows you to post to your weblog from Linux without the need for a separate browser window. BloGTK allows you to connect with many weblog systems such as Blogger, Movable Type, pMachine, and more. BloGTK is written using Python and PyGTK , and is designed to be fast and simple to use.

BloGTK at sourceforge

I was wondering if BloGTK works with WordPress, until I found the BloGTK Blog, which runs on WordPress. So WordPress is now the blog software of choice for a blogging tool.

RAWDOG

Filed under: — Carthik @ 12:30 am

Some readers may be interested in this RSS Aggregator Without Delusions Of Grandeur (RAWDOG).

It’s not just the name that’s interesting. It is a way to create an html page with the entries from you favourite blogs. I found a rawdog in my referrers, and I went looking, which is how I found this tool. RAWDOG has been around for more than a year, in one way or the other.
