WordPress WYSIWYG Editor Customization I don’t know how many WordPress bloggers use only the Text tab in the editor, but I’m pretty sure that couple more buttons will definitely save their time, since there will be no need to add tags and styles manually. My habit of watching the code through the tab text appeared quite a long time ago, when TinyMCE was constantly adding extra < br > tags, and I really hated that. That’s why the tab Visual is something that I’m not using at all. Today was one of those fine days when I realised that I need to automate my routine work a bit, that’s why I decided to add couple more buttons with tags that I’m using most oftem, and to share this knowledge with you.

Quotable: Highlight and Share WordPress Posts on Twitter Readers may not always identify with the title that you’ve chosen for your posts but they may find a gem within your article that is more “quotable” and worth sharing. Quotable is a new WordPress plugin that capitalizes on this, allowing readers to highlight any text within your content to quote the article on Twitter. The plugin, developed by Josiah Sprague, was partially inspired by the toolbar on that enables visitors to tweet or comment on the text they select. Sprague said that he created it out of his love for both WordPress and Twitter: I love how both platforms make it easy for people to share ideas and communicate openly and freely. I love that both serve as a sort of “public square” of the web and support discourse, democracy and free society. Quotable adds a tiny Twitter icon to the end of blockquotes for quick sharing. When you click the Twitter bird, a tweet modal will automatically launch with the quoted text inserted. Related The Beginning Of The Friday Happy Hour

#TEST : Le Nabaztag:Tag n’est pas mort ! Faites parler votre installation domotique à moindre coût! Salut à tous! Il y a quelques temps j’ai fait l’acquisition d’un Nabaztag:Tag d’occasion, vous savez, l’ancienne version de l’actuel Karotz, ce petit lapin connecté capable de communiquer avec vous !

Une fois votre lapin fraichement déballé du carton et branché, vous allez devoir le synchroniser avec un serveur afin de vous en servir.
