Silence is golden guard plugin is updated

SIG GUARD Updated

Next update v.1.5 is available for Silence is Golden Guard WordPress plugin. With the help of plugin users incompatibility with WP Super Cache plugin was discovered and fixed. The problem was that blog with WP Super Cache plugin active becomes unavailable after activating of SIG plugin. Analysis showed that index.php file with redirection directive in the wp-super-cache/plugins directory results in the endless redirection loop which block the blog front-end and admin back-end access.

Delete Default Post WordPress plugin or Where do We go

Where do We go?

Where do We go?

Where do we go? It was the first question I asked myself when I discovered “Delete default post” WordPress plugin in the repository. Plugin makes exactly that is declared in its title – deletes the ‘Welcome to WordPress’ post and correspondent dummy “Hi, this is a comment” comment which every WordPress blog has just after fresh installation. The question is “What should the author of this plugin think about its potential users to propose them such functionality?”.
If user can install and activate plugin he/she definitely can to delete unneeded post or comment using WordPress built-in functionality. Post and comment has hint about such possibility too. If blogger can’t delete unneeded post or comment –

Platinum SEO WordPress Plugin versus All In One

Platinum SEO versus All In One

Platinum SEO versus All In One

Or why I switched my blog from All In One SEO to the Platinum SEO plugin

I used All In One SEO WordPress Plugin about a month. It worked good for me. Thanks to the author. But there is another side of the medal. What I don’t like from the very beginning it is the very aggressive and annoying donation requests and self-advertising this plugin shows on its Settings page. “I enjoy this plugin and have made a donation” checkbox uses some form of psychologic pressure on the plugin user to extort something from him. Is this plugin really free? I see that it is released under GPL (GNU General Public License) in the all_in_one_seo_pack.php file header. Do you agree that this is a freeware software? My doubts about it were very strong up to this moment. And finally when I had installed version 1.6.7 of All In One SEO I have no any doubts that this plugin is not really freeware.
