Speedtest widget updated

Bojica.com blog is now powerd by WordPress 2.5

I have done the transition to the all new WordPress 2.5, renounced at any additional plug-ins and have chose TypoXP as default theme. This should make the site faster, in fact much faster as it is no more required to wait for third party code to load and it will ease its maintenance and future upgrades.

WordPress upgrade to 2.3.3

A quick note – just got upgraded this blog site to WordPress version 2.3.3.

Syntax Coloring in WordPress

I have been looking to install a syntax coloring plug-in into my WordPress blog. Browsing through the official plug-in repository, I have found SyntaxHighlighter Plus, SyntaxHighliter and WP-Syntax.

All three plug-ins seems to be easy to use, for installation being required to copy the plug-in folder to wp-content/plugins folder and to activate them via the admin interface.

But I had to have only one choice, so this is … WP-Syntax. It is based on a distinct project GeSHi, Generic Syntax Highlighter, freely available under GPL license and supports syntax highlighting for a wide variety of popular languages. GeSHi is included in numerous blogs, wikis and content management systems like Dokuwiki, phpbb, Mambo or WikkaWiki.

And now, let’s see and example, Hello World written in C programming language.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
 
int main(void) {
    printf("Hello world!\n");
    return EXIT_SUCCESS;
}

This is achieved by including the source code under <pre lang=”C” line=”1″> and </pre> mark-up tags.

WordPress Upgrade

WordPress 2.3.2 is an urgent security release that fixes a bug that can be used to expose draft posts.

To my surprise, Dreamhost updated their Goodies – One-Click-Install just in hours to facilitate the mentioned security upgrade of WordPress.

The upgrade procedure was easy to follow, and kept intact my WPG2 plug-in, as well the custom Mimbo based theme.

No database update was required.

No downtime to bojica.com website. Good job!
