We received a feedback for more buttons in visual editor to use when you are creating blog posts. Especially, the undo/redo buttons. We found a plugin tailored for this specific wish: TinyMCE Advanced.

Here is the screenshot of the new and enriched visual editor:

Most effective way of fighting SPAM: Human verification

We installed a new plugin for our blogs that would reduce the SPAM comments.
The solution is as simple as it seems: human verification.

When the plug is activated in your blog. Anyone who would like to leave comment should answer a basic arithmetical question:
captcha

In order to take control of the spam, we believe that human has a better chance to answer these question than an oversea computer bot.

The settings are located on the lower menu: BWS Plugins. Here is a screenshot of the settings that we recommend to our admins.

We wish you spam-free days.

Sincerely,
your blog support team.

Kategorien Individuell Sortieren

Kategorien sind bei WordPress als „default“ alphabetisch oder nach Nummern geordnet.

Basierend auf den Anforderungen in der FHNW haben wir diese Funktion deaktiviert.

Die Deaktivierung ist möglich mit dem Plugin: Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order

Zu finden untern den Link: http://wordpress.org/plugins/taxonomy-terms-order/installation/

Nachdem dies installiert wurde, sind folgende Einstellungen zu überprüfen:

  1. Wenn das Category Specific RSS Menu Plugin installiert ist: (unter Einstellungen zu finden) Show Category RSS for All Categories >> aktivieren
  2. Beiträge > Kategorien: Diese sollten in der gewünschten Reihenfolge angelegt sein.
  3. Einstellungen > Taxonomy Terms Order: Autosort ON und Admin Sort aktiviert
