Many people want to change their permalink structure, for example,
From /%year%/%monthnum%/%day%/%postname%/
To /%category%/%postname%/

But doing so will make all pages indexed by search engines become invalid,moreover, losing visitors from other sites or bookmarks that links to you.

There is a way to tell the search engines (and browsers) that the page has permenantly moved, and that the old address should be replaced by the new one. It’s called a “301 Redirect”, also known as a Permanent Redirect. When you do this, Search engines will update their indexes quickly and you won’t lose your pagerank.you will continue to receive traffic as though nothing had changed. This works for search engines, bookmarks, and links from other sites.

By now, you know how can you change your permalinks without losing the traffic you’re already getting. You can download this Permalink Migration Plugin to achieve this for you.

This plugin will generates a “301 Redirect” when user or spider visit your site through old permalinks,and redirect them to the new permalinks of the same post. Permalinks Migration Plugin allows you safely change your permalink structure without breaking the old links to your website, and even doesn’t affect your search engine rankings.

WP JS WordPress plugin Allows the developers to compress (using JSMIN algorithm and GZIP) JavaScript files as well as concatenate them into a single file easily. This will make websites faster and improve the user’s experience. Cache expiry time is can also be set in the admin page.

Let’s say we have the famous prototype and script.aculo.us JavaScript libraries. This is in total of 8 files and 247KB files size. Lets say we GZIP each file separately this turns the total into 63KB (74% decrease), which is a good decrease in size. However the user would still have to download 8 files. WP JS turns the files into a mere 45KB (82% decrease) download for the user. This plugin allows you push JavaScript development in terms of modularization and download sizes for WordPress.

Secondly, you can also see all the comments left by a single person, and edit or delete them via the plugin interface. People that comment often on your blog are your most loyal readers, so it would be useful to know exactly who they are.

The idea of BuddyPress is to take a standard vanilla installation of WordPress MU and turn it into something that represents more of a community building tool, or niche social network. BuddyPress is essentially a set of WordPress MU specific plugins. Each plugin adds a distinct feature (or component) to BuddyPress and only handles functionality for that specific component (for example, private messaging). The standard features of BuddyPress are:

Extended Profiles

The extended profile component allows site admins to create specific profile fields for their members to fill in. They can create as few or as many profile fields as they like, be as specific or vague as they want. Profile fields can then be grouped.

Personal Blog

This is everything WordPress has to offer for publishing a blog. The only difference is that all administration tabs will be moved underneath a “Blog” tab. A Member’s blog will also appear under “/membername/blog/” or /membername.domain.com/blog” rather than at the root.

Private Messaging

BuddyPress private messaging works like internal site email. Members can message people on their friends list as well as forward and reply to received messages.

Friends

Members of a BuddyPress social network can be connected together by one member adding another as a “friend” and then the other member accepting the friend request.

Groups

Groups in BuddyPress are a gathering of members, blog posts, photos and any other user generated content.

The Wire

This is a place where friends can come along and post to a members profile. This would be a short message and could include a picture and some basic HTML. The TinyMCE editor will be used to allow for basic formatting.

Status Updates

Status updates in BuddyPress will appear on a member’s profile page. A member can update their status as frequently as they want to. All status updates are logged in a member’s activity log.

Albums

Members of a BuddyPress installation will be able to create their own photo albums. These albums can be shared with friends and groups. Each member is given a certain amount of space, which can be set by the site administrator.

As each one is a separate plugin, there is no reason why site admins can’t pick and choose which components they want and don’t want. There is also no reason why additional components couldn’t be written, or other existing WordPress plugins be used alongside.

Comment Info Tip is a WordPress plugin that provides you and your commenter’s a bit of information on their posting stats. When you mouseover a commenter’s name you will see a tip appear displaying some information about that given commenter. The tip will display 1 of 4 results:

  • If the commenter has only posted once then it will say so in the tip (see number 1 in the legend below).
  • If the commenter has posted more than once we will look up the last three posts they have commented in and display links to those posts. This allows you to see which type of posts this user is interested in and easily navigate to those posts (see number 2 in the legend below).
  • If the commenter has posted more than once we will attempt to search their RSS feed and show an excerpt from their last post (see number 3 in the legend below).
  • If it’s a pingback or trackback the tip will indicate so (see number 4 in the legend below).

Disqus, pronounced discuss, is a service for blog comments. Disqus enables bloggers to make the conversations on their blogs more interactive and manageable. Our distributed comment system connects readers across blog communities, while empowering publishers in promoting their content. In short, using Disqus is a better way for people to participate in conversations initially started by blog posts.

Discussions on your blog are now made more interactive and social. Readers can rate comments to help make sure only good comments stay in the conversation. Rated comments contribute to a commenter’s clout, or reputation, on blogs across the web. Disqus is currently a free service to use. If you do not use any of these, Disqus also provides a general code snippet for any website as well.

Disqus is a hosted service. This means that the discussion threads are completely powered by their software and servers. However, they do not make any claims to the ownership or control of the comments. You do still own your comments.
