I was working on a client project, when I noticed that one of their sub-directory sites was redirecting its frontpage to the dashboard!
I looked through the htaccess for quite some time before I realized that this was an easy setting on the super admin options menu. If you get stuck where you site only redirects to the dashboard. try checking that you don’t have anything in the ‘Dashboard Site’ option of ‘super-admin’->’options’.
So, I installed the Simple Facebook Connect plugin for a client, but I found that its login widget was lacking.
I prefer to use the login with ajax plugin, as it has error reporting and lost pwd functions all from the front page. There is nothing more irritating to me than having users redirected to the login.php page simply because of a miss-typed pwd. In a multi-site environment being redirected to the login page of the top level blog, totally breaks the feel of the sub-blog.
So, I have edited the login with ajax plugin to also use the simple facebook connect ‘connect with facebook’ button. This is an improvment on the SFC widget, as it has on page error reporting ( wrong pwd, etc ), and doesnt need to reload the page on login.
Simple Facebook Connect for WordPress Installed
1) Install SFC WordPress Plugin and Configure
2) Download and Install my Login-With-Ajax-&-SFC Plugin
3) Add Widget Via Widgets Page,Page or Post Shorttag, or Use The Shorttag in the Template Files Itself
Want to use a WordPress plugins shorttag inside your template files?
Use this nifty php snippet to call the shorttag properly!
So, I know that many of you use shorttags for plugins, simply drop the short-tag onto a post or page and voila! the plugin function is included.
Some times you just want to paste a plugins short-tag directly into your wordpress template files.. If you have tried this before you’ll notice that it simply outputs the shorttag, and nothing is included..
IF however, you want that plugin function to be called somewhere else, like in your template files themselves, then you must use a php snippet to call the shorttag.
So, Use this code to call short tags/ short codes in your themes template files:
This will simply run the plugins shortag in your template files as if it was a real wordpress engine short code
I really like the Dashboard Content Management Plugin. Personally I have it auto activated on my wpmu2.9 sites and network activated on my wp3 installs. its big easy buttons really make the dashboard friendly for my clients.
Problem is its not wp3 compatible! ..Until now!
So I decided to update the Dashboard CMS Plugin for WP3 and legacy compatibility. So this plugin will handle WP2.9+, WPMU2.9, and WordPress 3! Enjoy!
*note: I found a wp3 version that does user privilege checks before showing each button. but this version was legacy unfriendly, so i merged the two files together using get_version().
So this version is 2.9 and 3 compatible, and it checks the users level to determine if it should display each button!
