Guys, another major release of BWP GXS is now available! The biggest change made since 1.1.6 is the ability to build a Google News sitemap that can be submitted to Google News without hassle :D.
All you have to do is click on the newly added tab (News sitemap), enable the module, choose some news categories as well as their genres and you're ready to go. Your news sitemap can also be used... more
After reading Small Giants: Companies That Choose to Be Great Instead of Big written by Bo Burlingham I have come up with the idea of writing about small plugins that can greatly improve functionality for your blog. If you think a great plugin needs to be huge, you are definitely wrong and you should go see the book I have mentioned right away.
Small Giants will be a series of posts on BetterWP.net... more
As a WordPress end-users, you might never care about the term "Memory Usage" until you encounter a fatal error that keeps your site from working normally.
Memory Usage (in WordPress's case) is used to refer to how much CPU memory your PHP scripts (plugins, themes, and WordPress core files) consume when they get parsed. WordPress's core files (Twenty Ten theme installed) consumes about 13MB of memory (on some hosts with added modules or features, this number can be even higher, for example, the number is 16 instead of 13 for my website)... more
As an end-user, you might find WordPress ridiculously slow sometimes, not because WordPress itself is slow, but rather the way you're using WordPress is not optimized.

After two hard-working weeks of mine, a new home for BWP Plugins' support, the BWP Community, is officially online.
All questions, feature requests, bug reports or suggestions for BWP Plugins must now be posted on the forum (or the WP.org support forum, but this one will be preferred). You can of course discuss and / or share anything related to WordPress in appropriate forums if you want.
Visit, stay, and enjoy!... more
A WordPress constant is simply a variable that can not be changed once it is defined. As static as a constant is, it still plays an important role in controlling how your WordPress works.
If you are asked to name some WordPress constants, it would not be a surprise if you mention ones like WP_DEBUG, ABSPATH, or WP_LANG, because they are somewhat widely used. In this article, I will list and explain other... more
This is the second post in the WordPress Bugnet series, in which I will list another five WordPress bugs that have not been fixed in recent versions of WordPress, along with their statuses and workarounds if available. Make sure you check out the first post, too!
By reading this series, you might be able to figure out if something's wrong with your blogs, and hopefully, fix it without the need of a bugifx... more
People's need is changing everyday, and so is WordPress. From a simple blogging software, WordPress has evolved into a somewhat feature-rich Content Management System. It is, therefore, not a surprise if we, users and developers, always try to do crazy things with WordPress these days, and creating virtual (fake) WordPress pages is simply one of those unusual objectives.
So, what do we need fake pages for anyway? What I find particularly useful about... more
