А вы хотите зарабатывать с блога?

Всем привет!

Недавно заметил в блоге Игоря Бигдана рекламный баннер, где он предлагает рекламу в своем блоге. И тоже задумался над тем, как бы получить хотя бы небольшую копеечку со своего увлечения.

Наткнулся на форуме блоггеров http://www.bloggers.su/forum/ на раздел о монетизации блогов http://www.bloggers.su/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=29, там обсуждаются многие вопросы, смысл которых мне непонятен. Тем не менее, некоторые из участников озвучивали цифры, и у некоторых якобы доход с блога был такой, что с основной работы можно было уйти... я бы тоже так хотел...

Особенно заинтересовала тема: Как начать зарабатывать на блоге? В ней новичкам, в т.ч. и мне, объясняют как найти рекламодателей для блога, какими способами вообще можно заработать... короче интересно блин и перспективно, как мне кажется.

А вы что думаете об этом?

Import by month in Wordpress 2.9.2

Hey all,

I've had a Wordpress blog which partially mirrors my LJ for a few years. I used to import all my entries from livejournal at the end of each month, delete useless posts and memes, fix spelling, etc. I used LJ's export and Wordpress's import tools: for me, because I used the switch as an opportunity to edit my content, the fact that you could only import one month at a time was a feature, not a bug.

Recently I upgraded to Wordpress 2.9.2, which is great and fantastic, but the option to import by month has disappeared. I don't want to import my entire livejournal to wordpress, not least because 4/5 of it is already there. Instead I'd like to import just the most recent entries.

Is there any way to do this? Maybe using the XML files LJ generates?


EDIT I solved my problem by... replacing the new import journal function with the old import journal function. XD;; It works! I'm happy. Sorry for the spam post.

WP version 2.9.1 - Displaying All Tags

I just converted to WP 2.9.1 and noticed I lost the display of some of my tags. Further reading of the WP Codex indicates there is a default number of 45, supposedly of the most popular tags. My problem, my WP theme is showing less than 45.

I prefer to display "all tags," rather than the most popular 45. I don't understand WP's algorithm for making that determination.

Is there anyone else having similar problem? Have you found a fix?

Technical Difficulties.


(no subject)

I have had nothing but problems with WordPress 2.8 . Does anybody happen to have a copy of 2.7 on hand that they can email me?

Ok this might be a big request, but can anyone help me?
Wordpress confuses me like hell. I have an account set up, but I want to change the theme to others that I find on theme sites, or maybe even create my own (I do code). But how do I implement a new layout/theme into my existing worpress account?? Some sites have said "Copy this code into this area of wordpress"... and yeeaah, it's not that simple; it doesn't work. I might need to be walked through it.

Help would be appreciated, thanks!

LJXP-Plus rides again

Now that LJXP is back in development and the really broken bits have been fixed, I've updated my patched version. As before, it will work with Reilly's Hide or Cut Text plugin. It also has some new additions. The most significant are that it supports userpics (keyword only, no previews) and will allow posting of categories in hierarchical format (pets, pets: cats as well as pets, cats). There are a handful of other things in the way of limiting crossposting and on-off switches for all options.

Share the wealth.

Plugin for overlapping menu

Anyone who has their browser set for a large font size has probably noticed that the top-level admin menu items in the 2.7 dashboard overlap the page content. I finally got fed up enough with this to go hunting through the stylesheets for the culprit.

The result is the admin overlap fix plugin. Share the wealth.

It just adds an extra line of css, overriding the offending code. Unzip, load and activate it and you're good.

It may start breaking down again at font sizes larger than 20px, as the text of the links themselves start pushing with menu wider, but for anything between 12 and 20, this should work.

Concerns About WP Security

Hi All,

A few users have registered at my self-hosted WP Blog. Here's the situation. None of these users have made any comments and what few comments made on the blog are from LJ communities of posters I am familiar with their screen names.

I am thinking about closing down registration since I don't publish private entries. I had specifically noted that registration is not required to comment.

So why would anyone register? Is this a means of hacking into my blog. What security measures should I take to protect my blog.

Avalicious! v1.1

So, after my success the other day wrestling WP-OpenID into the ground, I thought it was about time to revisit another one of my LJ-to-WP integration plugins, Also LJ Avatar.

This plugin’s idea is great but I’ve always been a bit bleh on the specifics; particularly, I don’t like the way users have to format their names as username@server-without-extension in order to be picked up. I always figured it would make much more sense (and better integration with OpenID) to read off a supplied URL than a name. I also had issues with ALA when I first installed it due to its reliance on remote includes. This was patched pretty quickly with cURL, but the plugin still kept a couple of narky behaviours like not caching images due to a reliance on system().


So this morning, in between loads of washing, I gutted the plugin, re-wrote most of the regexps and logic, replaced wget with cURL and ended up with Avalicious!.

Similar to ALA, Avalicious! hooks off get_avatar in WordPress. It reads out a commenter’s URL, and if it matches one of its internal list of known LiveJournal Server sites, it returns that user’s default avatar. If that doesn’t work, it fails out neatly with whatever avatar it was passed in the first place (Gravatar by default, but it could theoretically be something else if you’re running other plugins).

It works with users and communities for LiveJournal, InsaneJournal, DeadJournal, JournalFen, Dreamwidth and Inksome.

WordPress.com has a new importer

WordPress.com has taken the time to make a very much improved LiveJournal Importer, for those interested in moving there.
