WordPress plugin heaven!

This post is for all the php folks (mostly men) working hard out there to develop all the wordpress plugins that I used to build my site 🙂

I am not quite sure what inspires you but whatever it is Deb George wants to let you know that you are “priceless.” These folks help to keep a sista’s business in order.

They help to organize, update, analyse and keep fresh your wordpress blog, which is what this site is (a wordpress site). They are also, for the most part, readily available to answer questions, if a sista working from home needs a bit help with getting it to work right. I can’t thank you enough. I can drop a 5 in your paypal account, however, that would not even suffice.

If you haven’t noticed, this site is full of wordpress plugins that help with the functionality of this site. In addition to that, I’ve also learned a thing a two about php code. “How wonderful it feels to be educated.” A special thanks to the following:

* Subcribe to comments
* adsense manager
* dd-formmailer **I really like Matt.
* digitalfingerprint
* searcheverything

*Lucy’sLinkLove
* wordpressqueen **Special thanks to Lorelle (She doesn’t even know me yet:)
* postteaser

* sociable
* sk2
* sharethis

I have a great deal of admiration for the php folks. That php stuff is WICKED complicated. You guys inspire me to keep pressing ahead. If you can use your free time to develop these wordpress plugins and ask only for a nugget in your paypal account, I can certainly use my time to dedicate a post to show my appreciation and gratitude.

KUDO’s to the wordpress plugin folks! You deserve that and much more…

Update: I just found THE most adorable plugin EVER. If you take a look at my archives page you’ll see it in action. It’s a snazzy little plugin that makes your archives page dazzle. You can get it here:

BIG SHOUT OUT to Vladimir Prelovac for making this wordpress plugin. YOU ROCK DUDE!

What The Heck Is PHP?

PHP is also known as Hypertext Preprocessor. It is an open source (free), server-side (meaning run from your server), scripting language that is used to create web pages.The site you are reading right now is made up of this language. If you’ve every visited a site that ends with “.php”, then you come across it. I’m sure you’ve probably heard of HTML, or Hyper Text Markup Language. With PHP, you can embed HTML right into a PHP script. You can basically use PHP to build your entire website, graphics included and embed your HTML right into the darn thing.

Here’s a little bit of what it looks like:

<!– post form data to form.php –>
18 <form method = “post” action = “form.php”>
19 <img src = “images/yourphoto.gif” alt = “User” /><br />
20 <span style = “color: yellow”>
21 Please fill out all the fields below.<br />
22 </span>

Look confusing? It’s not. While I am no PHP expert, I recommend anyone who owns their own website to become somewhat familiar with both PHP and HTML. I did so by just toying around with my own website. I mean, if you want to change the background color of you website and can’t get in touch with your programmer, you need to know how to do it. We shouldn’t just be sitting around waiting for a color change. Time is money.

PHP is very popular because of it’s strength in compatibility with other databases. In layman’s terms that means that this language works wonders with all sorts of other programs and it’s very fast.

If you are at all interested in learning a bit about this scripting language, let me know and I’ll bring some information to this site.

Most women I know are not too much into the technology behind it all and don’t really want to be bothered with learning or studying a scripting language. However, if you are looking to have your own website (and you should b), knowing a little HTML and PHP can make your life a bit less complicated. Are you interested? If so, give me some feedback.
