We’ve noticed a recent rash of errors in the navigation bar of some of our websites. At first it looks like a pretty serious problem.
“How on Earth am I going to fix this?“, you might ask. Maybe you’ve seen it too. This is what it looks like this.
Fear not intrepid WordPress user. There is a very simple fix to this error. Don’t write off the exclude pages plugin just yet. We’re huge fans. It may not be completely necessary once users move to WordPress 3.0, but for now it’s one of our faves. More about the Exclude Pages plugin
Hey ebook writers. I’ve come across a really cool tool in the last couple days for manipulating pdf files.

I wanted to say a quick thank-you to Paul Holmes and everyone for their hard work in putting on another successful WordCamp in Victoria yesterday. And for those of you who attended my session first thing in the morning. I hope you walked away with something.
We certainly appreciated the explanation of some of the new features of WordPress 3.0. Honestly… that is huge for business owners and people using WordPress as a CMS already.
Here are the slides from the presentation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
We’re getting pretty pumped for the upcoming WordCamp Victoria event on Vancouver Island. The Big Fella – Dave Pettitt is scheduled to speak on “Using WordPress for E-Commerce Websites”. With the onset of WordPress 3.0, and what will be one of our favourite new features, Custom Taxonomies, once only used by the more skilled of WordPress users, this may open up so many more avenues for the e-commerce WordPress users.

It’s funny… as I was sitting down to write this article, my wife skyped me a preview of a page from one our sites. She had installed a social media plugin that I had written off for anything other than blogs. I guess it has been a few months since I had looked at it and there have been some vast improvements. Either that, or I missed some of the details the first time around. What?….That’s never happened before. Read more about our favorite Social Media Plugins for WordPress
What makes WPWebmasters WordPress Hosting Different?
What are Concurrent Visitors?
What the larger hosting companies don’t tell you is, if you’re using a database-driven website (like WordPress) they limit the number of people that can connect to your site at any one time. Some as low as 20 visitors at a time. Some will give you 50. But let’s say you send out an email to your 1000 subscribers and they try to click through to your site and can’t get through because you’re at your quota, what are the chances you may have lost a sale? Do you want to take that chance? Learn more about concurrent visitor and what makes good hosting
