John’s Rant:

Well I should have knocked on wood when I did the last show seems a couple days later the hackers/spammers have shown up again this time in a more insidious manner.. Yes they should all burn in hell.. It was coming from an offsite advertisement that was being served by my sites..

List of Plugins:

Just a couple simple plugins I needed to solve a couple of issues..


First off we have:

Blog in Blog

·  Author: Tim Hodson

·  Dragon Rating: 3 Dragons

·  Downloaded: 31,883 times

·  WordPress.org Plugin Page »

·  Plugin Homepage »


I liked this for is simplicity and ease of use to fix a main page issue where I needed to hide some special categories in a standard theme by Artisteer.

What they say about it:

Blog-in-Blog allows you to use the WordPress platform for it's CMS features, but still have a blog page on your site. Posts selected by category, post type, tag or any combination thereof, can be used to feed the ‘special' blog page, and can optionally be hidden from the home page. You can have more than one category hidden from the homepage (not post types or tags).


and next we have:

Recipe Press

I have now used this plugin on a couple of websites for creating a recipe book. You can check it out here at http://www.ManfreedintheKitchen.com I have found this plugin to be great and pretty easy to use.

What they say about it:

Turn your WordPress 3.0 site into a full fledged recipe sharing system. Allow users to submit recipes, organize recipes in hierarchal categories, make comments, and embed recipes in posts and pages.
