So, finally discover how to set the default blog in WordPress

I have multiple blogs, one personal and others for projects that I have, I trust in WordPress because it’s pretty flexible and since version 3.5 the improvements are awesome, making the writing a lot easier.

Still I had a problem, I’m used to the WordPress app for iOS and Mac to avoid having to load the whole page. It is kind of limited (not all plugins are available in the App) but for a quick post it works. Well, the problem I had is that I post mostly to my personal blog, but one of my projects blog was the default and I didn’t knew how to set a default. I event asked for help. read more

Unable to login to your wordpress site?

I had this issue today, I was unable to login to my wordpress site. I first thought that “in some way” the password was changed (like that time that I ask “lastpass” to generate new passwords) but still with the new password I was unable to log in.

I made the change in database directly, then used wp_set_password (‘password’, $ID) in wp-themes/theme/functions.php with no luck :-(.

The problem was pretty… baffling, there was a plugin conflict that prevent me to log in to the admin area.  read more

Trying the new wordpress desktop app

Basically looks like the wordpress.com site in a frame. And there is one thing that needs to improve, something that needs to change also in the mobile app (iPhone, iPad and possibly in Android too): Integration.

Yes, wordpress needs to integrate with the system, WordPress is by many people used as a CMS more than a blogging system. Many “news” sites use wordpress, maybe they do need to enter to the desktop/web app to write all that stuff, but others use wordpress as a simple blog system. read more

Press this, or the way WordPress do a reblog.

If you have been using WordPress for a long time this may sound dumb since you may had this option for a long time, I just discovered.

Tumblr is the biggest competition to wordpress, one of its key feature is the “reblog” where you can just reblog a post and have it in your blog. So, we can see blogs that are entirely reblogs, from multiple sites and sometimes it is easier to just follow that blog because they have information from multiple sources you don’t have to be looking for. read more
