Hi all,

I have been assigned a task that is not my normal task and I need some advice.

In the .htaccess file, I need to change 300 blog posts in WP to have 'blog/'  included in the blog posts permalinks.

For instance, I need to change

"http://www.ronkramerlaw.com/texas-teen-loses-life-in-moab-car-crash/"
 to
"http://www.ronkramerlaw.com/blog/texas-teen-loses-life-in-moab-car-crash"

Is there a way to do this in bulk with code in the .htaccess file where it only affects the 'blog posts' and not other parts of the site?

TIA for your help.

Warm regards,
Deidre

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

          From a previously closed post, it is my understanding that I can be a hired guest blogger for another website without having my own blog.  With that point in mind, I am interested in any link or links of websites which hire guest bloggers.  My blogging interest will center around a variety of academic areas such as literature, mental and physical health, family and parenting issues, and so forth.  

          Any shared insights to my question will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you

          George

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

          I am interested in any site or sites which support free blogging in addition to affiliate links on each blog.  With respect to content, my blog post will center around literary reviews about various novels, physical and mental health, environmental topics, and much more.  Realizing I am describing the nature of my blog post in a generic fashion, I will break this down into more specific terms if needed.  In the meantime, I am merely interested in just getting started with it and build from there.

          Any shared input will be greatly appreciated.

          Thank you

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

           I have a great deal of pre-written content along with references.  At this point, I would like to possibly use this content to create blogs and earn some residual income.  With that point in mind, could someone help me in getting started with this idea.  I already have my own registered domain name.

           Thank you

           George

I had this question after viewing What regex will remove duplicate rel="nofolow" tags?.

What has come out of the previous questions works great for an individual page and then manually pasting the updated page back to the site.  The site is blogger and the api will only allow you to change a very limited number of pages per day.   For example, if I was doing this manually open the page, copy the page, update the links, paste the page back and then save the page.  So is there  a  way to do all the pages in the site and pasting the changed content back into the blog as I just described?

By the way, I tried the Adam Lewis find and replace http://www.adamwlewis.com/articles/blogger-find-replace but since it is using the API it only does a limited number of pages per day and then it starts at the top again each time it is ran.  I have 1,000's of pages and many more links to change thus why I am hoping I can get this to iterate through the website and make the appropriate changes.

Thanks,

Hi Experts

I am thinking of creating a New Blog on some free blog platform for the sake of experimentation and gaining some practical experience in this regards.

First, I want to have the ability to EDIT the Blog Post, any number of times I want to, in the future. So those services which puts restriction on this feature, will not work for me.

Secondly, I need to have the ability to post CODES within my blog posts, just as we can post any programming language samples, codes, scripts etc. inside Experts-Exchange.com, by using this feature -

Sample code

Open in new window

I need similar feature in the blog.

Thirdly, it should allow me to add proper TAGS to each individual post, so that I can easily search and filter the posts based on tags.

Fourthly, I should be able to post the snapshots / photos of various stock market charts etc. without any complicated process of resizing or changing image formats etc.

Fifthly, the visitors of the blog should have ability to post Proper Detailed Replies to my blog posts and they should also have the ability to add images and Script Codes etc.

Sixth, I should be able to DELETE the complete blog, with all its posts, when the experiment is completed and I have pretty good idea regarding how all this works. At some time in future, I will have my own personal website, hosted on my own web-server and I will create my final blog on that site itself. But all that looks super complicated to me at this point of time, so I just want…

I used to blog on a previous domain we had axessnetwork.com.

We have since shifted our brand to simplifychurch.com and a blog at learn.simplifychurch.com

Some of my posts are getting search engine results on the axessnetwork.com domain.  I'd like to move those as copies onto the new domain. What is the best practice to move that content over to our new blog and domain?  

I've seen tools like Yoast SEO where I can set the Rel links to the new domain, but want to nail it the first time.

I have 8 blog posts laid out in Word, but need them in a format I can deliver to my WordPress developer.

I am considering getting Dreamweaver for $29.99 / month. This sounds like a good bridge between Word and WordPress.

Any free option?

Secondly, I need ideas on formatting the text to look nice. I see the first paragraph could be bolded to make it a string introduction to the blog post.

Why about indenting the start of each paragraph?

What might be good fonts and point sizes?

Thanks

I have a Wordpress blog coming up in a few days and need a WP plug-in that will enable me to make up quizzes.

I do not expect to require anything special. I expect it to:

- keep score each time quiz is taken
- automated score keeping and database update
- admin option to block correct answer from ever being shown
- perhaps a UI for me to create the quiz
- some metrics for me as admin to see how many people take the quiz, how may pass/fail
- responsive
- social with perhaps an option to ("get a life line") , but I would never us that trademarked term

I am willing to pay a few dollars if there is an exceptional plug-in.

Thanks

Please list for me a handful of best practices which are also easy to implement.

I hear whiteface is important, so layout concerns are also important to me.

Then, a few links pointing to articles on this topic would also be helpful.

I always find it easier to answer a question if I know the askers' goal, so here goes:

Goal: I want to dynamically list pages in alpha order.  I have a list of ransomware variants, each with multiple links to pages about them.  This continually grows.  The individual pages I am taking care of using Zotero and zotpress. Currently, the list is done using W4 Post List.  The resultant page is here.  I would like something more along these lines, but I would like to do it with a wordpress plugin, free or paid.  I am willing to go the tab route, as long as I can make 26 alpha tabs and have the contents of each tab dynamically list in alpha order.

I am open to almost any solution that fulfills these needs.

How?

I can add a link, but need it to open a new tab.

Also, the color of the highlighted tex is light blue and it needs to be darker.

I have added the plug-in Monster Insights into WordPress and authenticated the installation with my Google analytics log-in.

There was a long code I copied then pasted into the modal dialog, as requested.

What next?

I need to have a unique Google Analytics page for each blog page?

What are the next steps?

1) I create my first post from the Admin panel (Dashboard) but can not find how to edit it.

2) On the blog, I see I have a "Share" button. But who I click it, nothing happens. How do I configure it so that users can use Twitter, Facebook, Email, etc to share my blog posts?

Thanks

Hello Experts, We have an IT software that we would like to have it reviewed by IT bloggers or professionals to give us a feedback but also so potential customers can gets their peace of mind and get more exposure.

We do not mind paying for their time (though looking for unbiased review).

It has to do with data replication\migration on windows servers.

Looking for answers preferably by someone who has gone through this route before, though all constructive comments are highly appreciated.

Hi there

What would be the best tools to admin social networks, Facebook and Twitter, allowing to schedule the time for posts and render the pictures properly on Twitter instead posting only the link of the image.

Having some usefull statistics as well.   Cheaper of free as possible for personal use

I'm helping a friend migrate a blogger site to wordpress and need to make some hosting decisions.  It will be importing 8 years worth of posts,   NO e-commerce.  Each post is 7-10 pictures and text.

The guy who developed the wordpress was trying to push me into a $150-$200 / month VPS hosting plan, and he wanted $800/year for maintenance.

The site currently gets 100,000 uniques/month.  

Is that over-kill?

The godaddy "ultimate" says it can handle 400,000 uniques/month and is only $15/month

My main concern is consistency of performance.

The user who will be responsible for the site is very non-technical and isn't well suited to any maintenance.   A simple managed wordpress plan seems more his speed.

Thoughts?

Thanks,
Mike
