WordPress just released a new version. I installed the new 2.7 wordpress, and it looks great. I actually like the enhanced useability features. The weblog now is centered around your post. From the time you login you can see straight infront latest comments, a tool to do a quick post with a very clean and neat interface, lots of white, high contrast.
Best of all, clker.com plugin still works so, hopefully I’ll get some time to add a couple of features this weekend.
While I was writing the repeated images identification post, I modified the mimetex wordpress plugin to be the GNUPlot wordpress plugin.
The plugin executes GNUPlot over any portion of the text enclosed between [ gplot] and [/ gplot] tags, without the spaces of course.
set size 0.75, 0.3
plot sin(x) title “sin(x)”, sin(2*x) title “sin(2x)”
Download: Download the GNUPlot plugin for wordpress
- Make sure that your server has gnuplot installed
- Create the directory <wordpress>/wp-content/cache, and make sure it is writable by the web server
Tested on WordPress 2.5 and 2.6
Download: Clker wordpress plugin .
- Unpack the zip file inside /wp-content/plugins
- Activate the plugin from inside your wordpress
- Have fun
Feedback is welcomed.
I’ve been recently working on the website theme, colors both on the weblog side and the main website’s side. I believe it looks much nicer and less crowded this way. I will be synchronizing the style sheet of WordPress and the website’s main part so that visitors and users won’t feel they’ve moved into a different place.
I’ve been experimenting spatial image querying lately. Hopefully, below every image spatially similar ones will be showing soon regardless whether they were tagged or no. There’s a lot of work involved here, and hopefully I will roll out soon at least some experimental version to see how users react to it.
One of the SVG pictures that had troubles is the powered by Ubuntu logo. In an earlier post I described that I’m doing some SVG cleanup, and still to expect more cleanup in the future. One of the images that I was looking forward to is the powered by Ubuntu logo. So I’m up to some coloring for this night ! I will try to make a unified theme for both the website part, and the wordpress weblog part, and of course will incorporate the powered by Ubuntu logo, since this server is actually powered by Ubuntu.
Human beings are visual creatures. Pictures and eye sight is the second important way by which humans learn after hearing. Adding pictures related to your post will help visitors get your point. Exactly like adding pictures in a presentation, which help people understand the description made by the presenter.
Adding pictures to your weblog post will also help attract attention to your article, and increase the time your visitors stay. Pictures breaks the boring lengthy text of an article and gives the reader a break in the middle.
An important factor is then how easy is it to a) find a picture ad b) add it to your weblog?
Clker.com offers a huge collection of high quality cliparts. All cliparts are tagged with relevant words making it very easy to search and find the exact picture you’re looking for. You can directly copy the HTML code and paste it in your weblog’s page. All pictures can be easily embedded in any HTML source.
By default, all pictures are floated to the left making the text wrap around it without wasting your weblog space. You can manually remove the float and allow the picture to occupy a full horizontal area as shown above.
