0Wordpress LogoFixed: Deprecated PHP errors in wordpress dashboard

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.

0Wordpress LogoMystique 3 Theme: Full-post and Excerpts

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!

I’ve finally pro­duced a solu­tion.  It’s not espe­cially eleg­ant, but I’ve been at the very lim­it of my PHP know­ledge just to achieve this meth­od.  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.  If you are try­ing or suc­ceed in doing the same to a dif­fer­ent theme do drop a com­ment in.… Read Full Art­icle

0Wordpress LogoFixed: Comments area disappearing in Mystique theme

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.
