Possibly Related Posts on WordPress Blogs

1 Comment

I looked at one of my posts today and What the hell is this? There was a link at the bottom of my post for “possibly related” content. It was a link to a photo site of Red Hook Ballfields.

Yo, I control my blog. Links on my website are JO approved only. I would never put up spam for my readers. This completely ruins my integrity.

Luckily, there is a solution to take off this feature:

From your main page, click on DESIGN -> EXTRAS
Check: Hide related links on this blog, which means this blog won’t show up on other’s blogs or get traffic that way
Update

Part of me says ‘maybe this is good, it might give me some link love’ but I just cannot sacrifice my integrity like this. I am not particularly a fan of all the new wordpress changes.

thanks Lorelle

How to Insert a Video Into WordPress

Leave a comment

I ran into a little trouble trying to put a video on this blog. How do I put a video into my wordpress blog? Here is the code you need to put on a video:
[ youtube=http://youtube.com/watch?v=xxxxxxxxxxx]
Just put the URL where it belongs here – thats how you get it in. and take out the space after the first bracket – trouble figuring out how to post code

In other words, put this:

youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XXXXXXXX
inside [ ] square brackets.

-Thanks Raymee! nice video
