Multiple Domain for Single WordPress Installation

I’ve 2 domains (mohdneotech.com & mohdnordin.com) and wanted to point those 2 to the same single wordpress installation. Here’s what I did.

1. Point both domains to same public IP at DNS A record.
2. Just add these 2 lines into wp-config.php

1
2
define('WP_SITEURL', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);
define('WP_HOME', 'http://' . $_SERVER['HTTP_HOST']);

That’s all =)

WordPress 3.0 “Thelonious”

Arm your vuvuzelas: WordPress 3.0, the thirteenth major release of WordPress and the culmination of half a year of work by 218 contributors, is now available for download (or upgrade within your dashboard). Major new features in this release include a sexy new default theme called Twenty Ten. Theme developers have new APIs that allow them to easily implement custom backgrounds, headers, shortlinks, menus (no more file editing), post types, and taxonomies. (Twenty Ten theme shows all of that off.) Developers and network admins will appreciate the long-awaited merge of MU and WordPress, creating the new multi-site functionality which makes it possible to run one blog or ten million from the same installation. As a user, you will love the new lighter interface, the contextual help on every screen, the 1,217 bug fixes and feature enhancements, bulk updates so you can upgrade 15 plugins at once with a single click, and blah blah blah just watch the video.  (In HD, if you can, so you can catch the Easter eggs.)

Spam Attack Stats

Thanks to Akismet, I’ve re-enabled it due to spam attack & mass email notification from the blog regarding spam registration & comments posting which require approval. From the stats, it shows that 17,846 spams caught, 432 legitimate comments, and an overall accuracy rate of 99.814%. **phew

WordPress 2.8 RELEASED!

The first thing you’ll notice is that visually 2.8 feels a lot like 2.7, just with some minor tweaks here and there. However once you’ll dig in you’ll begin to appreciate the changes.

Major New Improvements

First and foremost, 2.8 is way faster to use. We’ve changed the way WordPress does style and scripting.

The core and plugin updaters in previous versions of WordPress have been such a success we decided to bring the same to themes. You can now browse the entire theme directory and install a theme with one click from the comfort of your WordPress dashboard.

If you make edits or tweaks to themes or plugins from your dashboard, you’ll appreciate the new CodePress editor which gives syntax highlighting to the previously-plain editor. Also there is now contextual documentation for the functions in the file you’re editing linked right below the editor.

If you were ever frustrated with widgets before, this release should be your savior. We’ve completely redesigned the widgets interface (which we didn’t have time to in 2.7) to allow you to do things like edit widgets on the fly, have multiple copies of the same widget, drag and drop widgets between sidebars, and save inactive widgets so you don’t lose all their settings. Developers now have access to a much cleaner and robust API for creating widgets as well.

Finally you should explore the new Screen Options on every page. It’s the tab in the top right. Now, for example, if you have a wide monitor you could set up your dashboard to have four columns of widgets instead of the two it has by default. On other pages you can change how many items show per page.

And Even More
You can read the full list of over 180 new features, changes, upgrades, and improvements on the Codex. The list is exhausting!

WP Upgraded to 2.6

Got my WordPress upgraded from 2.5 to 2.6. Thanks to WP Automatic Upgrade, the upgrading can be done in a few clicks :p But i wonder what’s new in this version. Checked their official website but found none. Only managed to see other WP users looking for the same thing too LOL. Maybe the WP team has forgotten to update their CHANGELOG :p
