WordPress Plugin – PostControl 1.0 is released

April 14, 2006

After many requests for a plugin “like DraftControl” but for posts, I have actually written one — PostControl 1.0 is released.

Feature List:
Supports Versions 1.5+, 2.0+
Number of viewable posts per page is changeable
Unpublish individual Posts from PostControl
multi-unpublish if you need that kind of power
Add Categories to a post without leaving PostControl. (support for multiple cats coming soon)
Change the Owner of a post for individual entrees without leaving PostControl.
Delete individual Posts from PostControl
multi-delete if you need that kind of power

Installation:
Save the postcontrol.php file to your wp-content/plugins/directory
Activate the plugin within WordPress in the Plugins section

Usage:
Go to the Manage section of WP and then select “PostControl”.
The controls are pretty much self explanatory.

Jumped Personal Site from MT 3.2 to WordPress 2.0.2

April 13, 2006

I have used WP for over two years and even coded plugins for it but never had time to convert my personal site to using WordPress. I have finally marked this task off my to-do list.

It was actually easier then I thought it would be and I plan to outline the steps I took to preserve my MT permalink structure in WordPress. What I had to do isn’t outlined anywhere on the web. I had to improvise with a variation of a couple different methods. WordPress 2.x imports differently then past versions so that was the real trick…..outline coming in the next week.
