Earlier today I updated our test site, in preparation for rolling updates out to the main site. This involved updating several plugins and replacing the “BeforeTheDeadline” plugin with Jetpack. After completing the updates I found I was getting several error messages on the dashboard, under the “incoming links” dashboard widget, and even more errors when I tried to empty the W3 Total Cache caches.

In response to a query by Darko Kovancives on my previous article about fixing Rich Snippets code for the Mystique theme we have resolved the same issues with the Thesis theme. Details of the changes required are below.… Read Full Article
I’ve been trying to figure out how to display full posts on the home page, and excerpts on all archives for about 3 days. This is nice because it means a decent amount of each post is shown on the front page, whilst archive pages contain a much more concise summary of each post. This is better both for humans, and also for SEO — my archive pages now don’t have duplicate content from my home page!

This applies specifically to the Mystique 3 theme, other themes are likely to vary, although some of this information may or may not prove relevant.

This article has now been superceded by a new article, which has been updated to use MicroData (schema.org) instead of MicroFormats.

I recently had a problem where the entire comments area was missing from all the posts on this blog. When I switched back to the default twentyten theme they reappeared and at first I thought it was a problem with the mystique theme. I switched back to mystique and disabled all of my plugins and the comments came back! A simple process of elimination identified the culprit — The WP SEO Pager Plugin. This plugin isn’t really necessary with the mystique theme, so I have simply removed it. If you encounter the same problem with mystique, check you haven’t got this plugin enabled.
