How to Get Your Twitter Follower Number in Plain Text

Twitter Follower Count in Plain Text

It’s easy to use a service like TwitterCounter.com to get a little chicklet button of your Twitter follower number. If you have that number in plain text though, then you can style and integrate it into your site much more attractively. In this post, I’ll show you how to get it.

You can see the end result in the top right of Tiny Buddha, a site I recently coded using Chameleon (Though this will work on any WordPress theme!)

And you can download the completed code here.

Quick Overview

To do this, we will create 3 functions, to:

  1. Get the follower count from Twitter, and save it to your database.
  2. Retrieve that count whenever you need it.
  3. Update the count automatically every hour.

We add in the extra steps of saving to your database and updating because on a busy site, Twitter will cut you off for pestering their servers too much. Sigue leyendo

10 Basic Tips for Improving WordPress Themes

10 Tips for Improving WordPress ThemesA lot of people use WordPress as their blogging platform. After installing WordPress, newly christened WordPress users will usually try to find and download WordPress themes that they can use so that their site looks different from the default theme. Whether a WordPress theme is free or premium, there are plenty of ways to improve them. The following WordPress theme tips cover basic customization, styling and optimization.

 

1. Reduce the Size of Theme Images

Images are an important part of every WordPress theme, yet WordPress theme developers sometimes forget about optimizing them. Images in a WordPress theme include CSS background images, template logos, default stock images, icons, and so on.

Optimizing images can save you in bandwidth consumption and can improve page response times for your blog readers.

Photoshop, for example, offers a Save for Web feature that optimizes images for the web. What I usually do is lower the quality settings of the image until I start to see changes in color or quality.

Furthermore, you can use a lossless image optimization tool like Smush.it that will squeeze out excess file size without loss in image quality. You can find more image optimization tools here.

Reduce the Size of Theme ImagesYahoo! Smush.it is a lossless compression tool.

Important Features All Blogs Should Really Have

Important Features All Blogs Should Really Have

Blogging is more commonplace now than ever before. It’s estimated that there are at least 147 million blogs[1] covering topics from technology to Japanese theme restaurants.

But regardless of the vastness of the blogosphere and the diversity of blog topics, there are a handful of site features that you’ll likely find in most of them. In addition, readers have come to expect these site features to be available to them when they visit their favorite blogs.

This article covers the standard features that all blogs should have. These features are meant to improve the user experience by enhancing community engagement, content sharing, findability of posts, and more.

Blog Post Archive

Typically, when site visitors first land on a blog’s homepage, they’re greeted with the latest blog posts sorted from newest on top to oldest at the bottom. This is what blog readers expect to see, but that’s not to say it’s all they want to see.

Many visitors will enjoy going through your older posts once they decide that they like what you have to say. Having a post archive — a web page or section in your blog that lists previous blog posts, customarily sorted in a logical fashion such as by date or by category — is an excellent way to draw in more page views and improves the ability of readers to discover content on your site.

A post archive can serve as a way to increase the conversion of first-time visitors to steadfast readers because it shows them what to expect if they choose to follow your blog. For existing readers, a post archive gives quick access to posts they want to revisit.

It’s not difficult to construct an archive of past blog posts either; most blogging platforms and good content management systems have the capability to display and list your posts. Take for example, WordPress. WordPress has core functions, a core template, and API hooks specifically for dealing with archives (e.g., wp_get_archives and archives.php).

Developer Discussion: What Do You Use For AJAX in PHP?

jquery_ajax_1010.jpgA quick question with a potentially longer discussion. What do you use for AJAX in PHP, and why?

XAJAX is a simple way to do it, and this is the approach I’ve been using for some time. In very simple terms, you write PHP methods that can be called from JavaScript by prefixing the method name with xajax_.

IT Workers Still Looking to Jump Ship, Even In Rough Job Market

A Computerworld survey confirms what a Harris Interactive survey found in July: about 36% of IT workers are looking for a new job. Harris found 37%. Approximately 25% of IT workers polled by Computerworld are making less than they were two years ago. However, unemployment figures released today are grim. Will workers actually be able to find new jobs to jump to?

Yahoo let the cat out of the bag earlier this week, when one of its executives told Reuters that it would begin offering video chat via Yahoo Messenger to both the iPhone and Android smartphones.

The move would bring Yahoo, which already has 81 million Yahoo Messenger users, again to the forefront of chat services and posing a serious challenge to Apple’s own FaceTime.

Real-Time News Curation – The Complete Guide Part 5: The Curator Attributes And Skills


What skills do I need to have if I want to be an effective real-time news curator? Can I just pick the best headlines and links on my topic of interest or do I need to do know / do more? What makes a great news curator stand out from those who do automatic aggregation or from bloggers who create simple news stories lists?

In the previous parts of this Guide to Real-Time News Curation I have looked at what are the key problems giving way to the emergence of real-time news curation, at the differences between automatic aggregation and filtering and human-powered manual curation. I have also spent some time illustrating some real-world examples of both automated aggregation and human curated news content. Sigue leyendo
