WPMUDEV recently sent me a reminder about a free plugin they offer: Custom Sidebars. It is available to download for free from WordPress.org. I wrote about this plugin back in 2014, but wanted to put it out there for those of you that are new to the Adult Blog Builder website. The plugin lets you display different content to different users in your sidebar and footers.
With Custom Sidebars you can create as many unique sidebar configurations for your site as needed – show one set of sidebars to first-time visitors and another to members, set up sidebars for specific pages or categories, or for special landing pages, you name it – and trigger them to display as needed.
With this plugin you can customize every widget area by setting new default sidebars for a group of posts or pages easily, keeping the chance of changing them individually.
For example, you can change…
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a category.
Sidebars for all the posts that belong to a post-type.
Sidebars for archives (by category, post-type, author, tag).
Sidebars for the main blog page.
Sidebars for search results.
It’s a must-have plugin, especially if you’re running a membership site and want to personalize the browsing experience for new and returning visitors. WPMU-DEV also offers a pro version of the plugin that is included free with a WPMU-DEV membership.

If you move your WordPress website to a new domain name, you will find that internal links to pages and references to images are not updated. Instead, these links and references will point to your old domain name. The Velvet Blues Update URLS plugin fixes that problem by helping you change old urls and links in your website.
* Users can choose to update links embedded in content, excerpts, or custom fields
* Users can choose whether to update links for attachments
* View how many items were updated
Using this plugin is very simple. Once it has been activated, navigate to Tools -> Update URLs and follow the instructions. Get support for this plugin by going to the Velvet Blues Update URLs plugin page. Post all questions as comments.

Which WordPress themes are on sale? All of the Premium Press Themes are discounted when using Coupon Code: FEBSPECIAL2015
WOW! 30% discount off the original price. These themes aren’t just about a fancy design, as these themes let you build custom sites for specific purposes. There is a Coupon Code website, Directory website, Classifieds Theme, Shopping Cart theme, and a Real Estate theme. Now these can be adapted for a different product, but the foundation is already in place for you to get the theme installed and start setting up your website without having to do a lot of custom work and deal with a bunch of plugins to get the functionality you’ve been wanting.
Once you buy the theme, it is yours to use as many times as you wish. I’ve purchased their directory theme, and the staff has been top notch for support, plus there are some very clear, and detailed videos available to walk you through every step in getting your site set up. And if you still want or need help, there is a very active community forum on the Premium Press site. If you have been wanting an Adult directory, a main stream money maker, or just need a shopping cart site/program to sell DVDs or your grandma’s prized jam, now would be a great time to save some $$ to get that site up and running.
This Premium Press discount is valid from Jan 18th – Feb 28th 2015 and be sure to use Coupon Code: FEBSPECIAL2015

Just copy the list, and then go to your Settings > Writing and scroll to bottom where it says Update Services. Delete the one ping site listed (or all of them if you already have a bigger, older list) and then paste the list you grabbed from Dessky.com. Now edit the first line that goes to Feedburner to be a proper http://link for your website and then save! That’s all you need to do to have notifications of your new posts appear on more ping services. More services will result in search engines returning to your site faster to index your post.
Note: be sure each URL is on its own line and ideally a blank between each URL is a good thing as well, but not necessary.
