Today we are announcing our first WordPress theme WPsimpy for the WordPress community. This theme is designed after considering every basic needs of professional bloggers who are using WordPress, and Google Adsense (TM) and other services to monetize their blog. WPsimpy is one of the fastest full function WordPress theme. Checkout out the Demo page of WPsimpy, you can see how fast it is. We have avoided images and unwanted codes to maximize the speed of this theme. Another specialty of WPsimpy is the customization possibilities. You can remove the widgetized footer, change colors, add additional navigation bar for including link ads, and many more .
If your analysis a WordPress category, you will see a word category associated with URL link structure. The order of such a link will be like http://www.domain.com/categoy/catergory name/. These category links look fine in appearance, but it would slightly alter the seo or search engine positions of associated WordPress posts. We can remove the word category from WordPress category URL by .htaccess method or by using plugins. However, using .htaccess it is a little difficult for first time WordPress users. So here we introduce you to plugin Top Level Categories, that can do this without many hassles.
You might have seen few WordPress blogs linking to external websites through any of the top page navigation links. For e.g. ifthere is a sub domain like say forums.yourwebaddress.com, it would be appealing and easy if linked through the top page Navigation bar. Here I introduce a plugin called Page Links To that can link any WordPress page or post category to an external website, sub domain or link. WordPress 2.8 users can install this plugin via add a new plugin option from the dashboard. After installation, create a new WordPress page and name it as per your requirement.
Adding contact form in WordPress blogs are pretty much is easier than in Blogger. Though there are so many WordPress contacts from plugins, here in my blog. I use a plugin called Contact form 7. The advantage of Contact form 7 is that here we can add options to include captcha, allow users to upload files, add quiz, radio buttons, text, etc . WordPress 2.8 users can install contact from 7 via the plugin installer. After installation, move on to form settings ( Click on Contact from bottom left side) . There will be a form, contact form1 created by default. Next step is to create a new blog page. Create a new page and name it contact or whatever you want. Now copy the brown underlined code in contact form1, paste it to the new page created and publish. You will see the new contact form on page refresh. Messages will be sent to the email address provided during WordPress installation. Further you can enhance the basic form by adding captcha security and option to upload files to blog administrator.
Nofollow is an HTML attribute that instruct search engines not to crawl the link to which it is attached. Comment author URL in WordPress, Blogger and all other CMS are nofollowed by default. This prevents spammers from gaining search engine advantage by just commenting on any of these blogs. I personally use a Firefox addon called nodofollow to differentiate from dofollow and nofollow. The addon will highlight nofollow links with a light red color. Recently after installing WordPress in downhub.com, I found that all external links on the blog are nofollow. So that means none of my blogs posts will be crawled by Google and other search engines. This happens sometimes when we install WordPress. Inexperienced users who don’t know about nofollow will left them unfixed, leading to long term search engine traffic lose. So here is how you can Fix all links nofollow issue after WordPress installation.
