How to embed videos from Facebook into WordPress

leave a comment »

I’ve seen the embed code before but I just could not remember where. So I searched it again on the web and Shoutpedia has a facebook note that explains how you can embed videos from Facebook into a WordPress post.

I can’t seem to paste the code here. So check out Shoutpedia note in Facebook.

Hope this helps. That’s all. =)

Country List is now not a headache

with one comment

Happy New Year to everyone here! Thank you for reading my posts and do come back while I work on my projects. I only post articles that I find useful to my work and hopefully to others.

Today, I have to create a country list drop down menu in the Contact Form 7. And country list has always been a nightmare for me at least. There are many articles out there on how you can do the drop down list in a form with ASP, Javascript and what have you.

But I don’t really have much time to do all that. I use Contact Form 7 and perhaps work smart a little bit by just chunking away a list of common countries that you will find in all other contact forms out there.

And I found two websites that do just that. Check them out and let me know what you think!

How to display Twitter Updates in WordPress using this plugin

leave a comment »

So far, this is the best – Twitter for WordPress plugin which you can find it in the depository or Rick’s plugin page.

It’s really easy to install. There are options for widgets at the sidebar or plain coding. The beauty of using this plugin is that you can actually display a single tweet and style it as a bubble speech! Really cool!

Have you found any better Twitter updates plugins in WordPress?

How to display post links from WordPress.com to WordPress.org blog

leave a comment »

I needed a way to show post links from my WordPress.com blog into my custom-designed WordPress.org site.

I was searching high and low on the web and finally I managed to read this post. Really help me to understand with his detailed explanation of using the code.

The trick is that if you are inserting this code in an already existing unordered list, it will not work and instead your site will give an error.

Just plainly insert the code without the unordered list


    Hope this helps! Cheerz!
