Over the past week I have been preparing my Article Rewriting WordPress plugin for public release. It’s been nice seeing it come together the way it has. So far I have 30 people that have been issued API Keys and most of them have already started using it. I tried to find people that have had experience with other article rewriting software so they could give me feedback on what they think.
Out of those 30, I have had 6 people give me feedback on it so far. In summary, they love it! To be honest I haven’t tried other article rewriting (or article spinners they sometimes call them) that are out on the market. I have always been the kind of person that finds flaws in other people’s programming so I’m never happy untill I make my own. I figured that this plugin (or the Web Ninja Article Rewriting API depending on which you would be using) is more feature rich then the most but I didn’t really think it was that much superior till I started getting some feedback on it. Apparently, I must be the only one that runs a rewritten article through a grammar checker. :/ I don’t know, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Your Trash is a function that was added in WordPress 2.9. When an item (post, comment, etc) is deleted, it goes in Trash instead of being permanently removed. You can easily tell your WordPress blog to automatically empty trash every X days.
Just open your wp-config.php file (located at the root of your WordPress install) and paste the following code:
define('EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 10 );
The second parameter is when to empty trash, in days. So in this example it will empty your trash automatically every 10 days. And if we want to completely disable the trash? You can put a zero as your second parameter.
Looks like WordPress is getting a little update happy again. Last time this happened they updated every 3 days for like 2 weeks… At least this time the updates are only 7 days apart. :/ Anyways, both my released plugins have no problem with the new update and are working just fine.
Now on to the good stuff! A nice fairy tale.
Once upon a time, in a land not very far away, Google had a PageRank API where you could query their system for a website’s Google PageRank. Well, for reasons I’m not going to go into details with, they removed that API. This left a lot of people sad and not knowing what to do.
