Useful Plurk Tools for your WordPress blog


Plurk is yet another free social networking service with striking similarity to its 2 year-old counterpart, Twitter. You might even call Plurk a clone of Twitter, but Plurk has a lot more to offer, it’s more social than Twitter, and it’s as close as it gets to becoming an IM!

This is how the people at Plurk describes themselves.

A really snazzy site that allows you to showcase the events that make up your life, and follow the events of the people that matter to you, in deliciously digestible short messages called plurks.

The followings are the tools that makes Plurk work with WordPress.

Retrieving Plurks onto your WordPress blog
Plurk for WordPress is a simple plugin by Ricardo González that retrieves your latest plurk messages and display it on your WordPress blog.

Sending Plurks whenever you publish or Edit a post on your WordPress Blog
WordPlurk is a nifty plugin that allows you to post your WordPress blog posts to Plurk.

Plurk Updater sends a Plurk to your account anytime you create, publish, or edit a post on your WordPress blog. You can pick and choose when Plurks are sent and what text is passed along with it.

Announcement on my Alexified Theme

My theme had exceeded the 1000 downloads milestone and my word, I didn’t expect such a turnout really. I had tons of feedbacks and support queries that I just couldn’t answer. That’s my bad. I’ve to apologize for the inability to answer your questions due to the switch of interest/focus lately.

Perhaps someone could takeover the design and its support?

My WordPress theme is now released

My wordpress theme is now officially released and ready for download. I’ve decided that the public version be called Alexified™ in favor of Fury. Sort of make it sounds like my own brand of theme.

I’ve cleaned up the codes of my Fury theme, make it public-usable, tested it, and slapped a new name on it before releasing it for public download. Head over to the Alexified page to download the theme.

Please do let me know if you decide to use, enhance, or improve the general layout/functionality of my theme. I’ll be creating a page specifically to showcase every Alexified™ blog, so drop me a comment with your blog URL and I’ll add you to the list. Users are encouraged to enhance the theme and distribute it in accordance of the GNU General Public License.

It’s been tested by some helpful bloggers and everything is looking fine at the moment. Overall progress is approximately 95% as I write. There are still a few nifty little errors to handle at this point. I apologize for the delay as I’m stuck with catching up with my own life in the real world.

By the way, I’ll be flying back to Malaysia on the 25th of March. Staying in Kuala Lumpur until the 30th of March, before flying back to Miri and Sibu.

Alex Allied v2 is Here

A week’s work on Alex Allied v2 has come to an end and you’re looking at the result right in front of your screen. Introducing the Fury 1.0 template for Wordpress.

The Mission

I had always wanted to create websites that loads quickly. No one likes to wait, and cutting down the loading time is my top priority in this project. Nowadays, fast-loading websites doesn’t have to be ugly, thanks to CSS. Conforming to Web 2.0 standards in terms of web design is also an essential part of the project. Though, I’m still working my way through reaching the standards.
