This week – I feel like I really found some gems.
- My Personal Golf Trainer Coming to Nintendo Wii Finally – real help (in my living room) in the off season!
- Three Potato FourAmazing stuff – I will take one of each
- Twitter Icon SetsLook no further for some amazing icons
- After the Deadline WP plugin to check spelling, style, and grammar.
- Using Lucidity Catalog with Topspin An article I wrote about the Lucidity Catalog theme.
I had been looking around for some alternative lightbox like plugins (for photos) and came across the super lightweight option: Shutter Reloaded. The script is super lightweight (10k), does not require any other libraries, and works perfectly without having to add any additional code. If you are looking for a nice little lightbox like plugin – check it out!
I recently switched from using a gallery WordPress plugin called fGallery to something that is more elegant and updated: NextGen Gallery During this transition, I found a really cool lightbox-ish plugin called Lightview Plus which is more polished than your typical lightbox plugin.
You do not have to add in extra code to get the images to show up in the lightview – it automatically takes care of everything for you.
WordPress has a great feature where it will make thumbnails out of any image you upload when creating a post. When you have PodPress installed (a great podcast plugin), the thumbnails option disappears. Finally I got sick of this and found the solution. If you ever run into this – now you know how to fix it as well!
