Well, after evaluating a lot of templates, I’ve realized I’ll need a bookmarking plugin. There aren’t very many templates that contain the bookmarking widgets already.
Here are the ones I’ve tried:
- Social Bookmark Plugin
This one is OK. I like how you can dynamically choose which sites you’d like included in the list of links. It doesn’t have any graphics though and I like that.
- Social Bookmarking
This one caused a fatal error when I tried to activate it. I don’t feel like finding out why.
Ok, this one seems to do the trick.
I’ve played around quite a bit with link structure for various sites I’ve programmed. I’ve found that Google will index your pages whether they have a parameterized URLs:
or parameterized Paths (Permalinks):
I think, however, that in general, search engines like the path portion of the URL better than they like than the query string for indexing search terms. In addition, it makes the URLs easier to read and understand what the page is about.
Hint, for WordPress, you can change the link structure of your site on the options tab. If you change the permissions of the .htaccess file in the WordPress installation, it will even write that file for you. For me, WordPress is running under the apache user account.
>chgrp apache .htaccess
>chmod g+w .htaccess
>ls -la .htaccess

I need a place to dump all the stuff I work on from day to day. I was sitting thinking one day about what something like this would be called and the domain AllMyBrain.com popped into my head. I thought, “That’s perfect, exactly what I mean to do with this.” To my pleasant surprise, the domain was available.
So here it is. I hope to soon populate this with all things having to do with code, technology, games, funny things I run into, or just simply, whatever I decide is worthy of a blog post.
