Exec-PHP WordPress Plugin


Now this is an interesting plugin. One, for its features and two, because of the way the author has documented the plugin. It’s amazing how much time they must have spent on documenting it all. Take a look for yourself Exec-PHP.

The idea of this plugin is that you can add and execute PHP code to static pages and even blog posts through your WordPress site. If you didn’t have this, you would have to enter to code by editing the files of your theme and it may not work the same way as you might possibly want it to.

WPCandy Plugin


No we haven’t created a plugin. Although me and Mike would like to create some plugins to make to make it easier for you all. Whats that? Tell us your ideas? Hmmm maybe not at the moment, maybe sometime in the future. Maybe a project for me and Mike in the upcoming months?

Anyway back to the subject, there is a plugin that shares our name. The WPCandy plugin allows you to add snippets of text or as the plugin says “a candy” into a specific location on a page without having to add it into the theme manually all the time.

Yes that’s correct. WPCandy has an RSS Feed. Where can I find the RSS Feed? Well it’s easy – scroll down the page and look under Syndication in the sidebar and choose one of the RSS feeds. Tha’ts all.

So what does this mean? Well for those who don’t know, it means you can subscribe to the RSS Feed and instead of having to visit the site everyday to check for new posts you check the RSS Feed. Then if there is anything new you can click the link and it will take you directly to the post. Life couldn’t get much better huh?

If you can’t find the RSS Feed then just click here.



Now everyone who loves technology knows that a mobile phone called the iPhone rocked the world earlier this year and Apple said that you would be able to create 3rd party apps for it.

Well what Steve Jobs meant was you could create 3rd party web applications for the iPhone, not native ones. So the internet had a boom in iPhone only web apps, but someone with a smart brain decided to take advantage of the web apps and create an amazing plugin for WordPress.
