Find WordPress Plugins

Currently, there are three ways to find WordPress plugins. The first would be to visit the WordPress Codex document on Plugins. The second would be to visit the Unofficial WordPress Plugins Database. And, the third would be to visit the Official WordPress Plugin Repository. If you are having trouble downloading plugins from the Official Repository (a user-friendly version is on the way), you may want to try Red Alt’s WP-Plugins Download Interface.

My currently active plugins can be viewed here.

Find WordPress Themes

Are you looking for WordPress v1.5 themes? Then start with this list of theme lists. This list of lists will point you to themes organized by column count, themes with thumbnail previews, the largest WordPress v1.5 theme list, an interactive theme browser, and other fun and exciting lists. If your WordPress v1.5 theme isn’t listed on at least one of these lists, then it’s not a WordPress v1.5 theme.

MacManX.com’s current theme is based off of Khaled Abou Alfa’s Rin.

WordPress Anti-Spam Solutions

Is your WordPress blog being hammered by comment, trackback, and/or referrer spam? Then look no further than the WordPress Codex document on Combatting Comment Spam. This comprehensive document will guide you through using WordPress’ default anti-spam tools, provide you with anti-spam plugins and captcha, and teach you how to block spammers with .htaccess. This is a recommended read for all WordPress users.

Currently, MacManX.com uses Bad Behavior and Akismet.

Wuhan and Validation

Wuhan (download), by Meng Gao, is a great theme. And now, thanks to Meng and yours truly, Wuhan validates. That’s right, Wuhan now validates as XHTML 1.0 (transitional) and CSS. As a bonus, Wuhan now complies with the U.S. Sec. 508 Accessibility Standards. Please note that I am not Wuhan’s developer. I only helped to validate it. If you have any support requests, please contact Meng Gao.
