No, you are not permitted to do that on Wordpress.com blogs. AdSense, Yahoo, Chitika, TextLinkAds, and other third-party advertising is not allowed here at WordPress.com. If you would like to run ads on your blog, one of these options may work for you: We have a feature called WordAds that lets WordPress.com bloggers with moderate to high traffic and ...

Yes it is removed from the blog post as well. These videos are embedded in your blog so there is a direct link to anything that happens on the hosting site. The video will appear to still be viewable on your site, but the moment you click play you should see otherwise. To keep it on your site, you will need to host the video yourself.

As the only way ifttt.com can post to Wordpress, is using the XML-RPC API, and that API currently doesn't support supplying custom post type while calling insert post methods(will support from 3.4), you can make use of the filter wp_insert_post_data. I accomplished that last month while building a hack. Here is a hack that would work the way you want, just ...

Further to Ciaran's answer, I've tried using CloudFlare to run Google Analytics on a wordpress.com blog and it actually works fairly well. There are some limitations but if you're technical enough to be able to manage your own domain then you should be able to get it going. In a nutshell, you configure CloudFlare's CDN (it's free) to inject the necessary ...

To access a path like /var/www/wordpress/ with a URI like /discover/, you will need to use alias rather than root. See this document for details. For example: location ^~ /discover { alias /var/www/wordpress; access_log /var/log/nginx/wordpress.access.log; error_log /var/log/nginx/wordpress.error.log; index index.php; if (!-e $...

there are two popular ways (among others) to transfer a dev WP site to production: copy all files to your destination server and then deal with the data issues by going into mysql and updating the urls (via find and replace) to thenew url alternatively, you can just simply install a new version of wordpress on the destination server and do a data import (...

Two-factor authentication is now available on WordPress.com blogs. Wordpress.com blogs now supports two-factor authentication both via Google Authenticator as well as SMS. See Wordpress | Two Step Authentication for an how-to on setting it up.

I would recommend Joomla or even Drupal. From my experience Joomla is easier to configure but Drupal is more powerful but harder to learn. They both have tons of free plugins / addons that can do what you need. Both also have tons of free templates / themes to make your site look the way you want. Wordpress would be great if you just want to post status ...

Might want to give a shot at MediaWiki (notably if the documentation is supposed to be written collaboratively). Intel is using a wiki on their intranet. source About Google Apps: not sure if it really fits the definition of an intRAnet. I wouldn't be comfortable with leaving my company's internal data on some stranger's cloud. But it could indeed be ...

I'm using a Wordpress plugin Add Link To Facebook to post to updates from my blog to Facebook. The setup is a little involved as you need to set up your own Facebook App as well, but not particularly hard and the guide is well written. It lets you (optionally) write a description, choose a thumbnail and title that get posted.

I noticed this on a site I worked on - The client had enabled 'Track address bar shares' in the addthis plugin. Un-ticking this option removed the codes from the sites URLs

The category "Uncategorized" is a default category. You have to have a default category (which means at least one) in Wordpress. However, you could change the "Uncategorized" category to a more imposing one as such "Blog", "Stories", etc, which would make the default (say for example, blog) category "Blog" and list all uncategorized posts as under "Blog".

You might be able to do this to some extent using the Facebook API but not as an end user. It is not possible and the full solution is not within the scope of Web Applications. Consider reading more about using the API at http://graph.facebook.com or http://facebook.stackoverflow.com

In the Facebook app settings there is a switch for making the app public. Even though all my posts say they are public on Facebook, they would not show up for other people if they were published using this app (through the WordPress plugin), unless this switch is set to Yes.

Unfortunately, no, because you can only configure one WordPress blog in the WordPress channel. An alternative is to use a different channel, such as the Feed channel to pick up new posts from your other blog to send to your Blogger channel. You might be able to do what you want with another IFTTT account.

This is not possible on Wordpress.com hosting. The "plugin" optionality is highly limited and curated on Wordpress.com - so to get a wider breadth of functionality, an upgrade to self-hosted WP is needed.

The 406 seems to stem from a user agent error that my server doesn't seem to like. # venus uses httplib2 underneath import httplib2 h = httplib2.Http() resp, content = h.request("http://ankursinha.in/blog/feed/", headers={'user-agent': 'trolololololol'}) works just fine. I'm still uncertain if the issue is in httplib2 or some server configuration, but ...

I managed to get around the issue for now by uploading the images to Photobucket and then linking into the post via the URL. So it seems that the issue is that they need to be hosted somewhere other than on my WordPress site. If anybody else posts a better answer that doesn't require the workaround, then I'll accept theirs.

Pretty much, any theme you find on the wordpress themes page are available for free. Sometimes theme developers will release a free version of a paid theme with feature limitations. In this case you will probably be notified that you have the option to "upgrade" after you install the theme. The most foolproof method is just to download the theme and install ...

If the website is started from scratch, simply just copy all the files from the folder where your local installation of Wordpress is located in directly to the destination server, just change paths and the database accordingly after you have done so.

WordPress supports oEmbed, which unfortunately isn't supported by twitch.tv. And since hosted WordPress pretty much strip unsafe codes which includes, the object tag.

The categorized RSS feed links might differ from site to site, CMS to CMS. For the given website, I did a quick google search for filetype:xml site:atvn.org(click it). It seems they have feed links like this - www.atvn.org/alumni/rss.xml www.atvn.org/blogs/rss.xml www.atvn.org/user/rss.xml www.atvn.org/news/2012/rss.xml etc. From the search results, this ...
