More on Splash Pages

I want a splash screen on this page. See also this post. This article documents my experiments with Kento Splash Screen.

If the short code is before the More line, then it appears on the Home, if after only if one enters the page itself. (So make a tiny article that looks like part of the header and pin it? We now have some PHP, see below/overleaf. )

SPARQL on WordPress

For various reasons I needed to look at SPARQL again. What’s the easiest way to put it up?, Here! I’ve been working with LH-Tools which is commented on at its authors site, and LH-RDF. I did not get this to finish satisfactorily, mainly based on my lack of SPARQL skills. May 2015

LH-Tools implements a SPARQL endpoint, and LH-RDF implements a series of alternative RDF schemas. LH-RDF has been deactivated at the moment, but the SPARQL query screen is here; it uses the default rdf feed as a source.

Pool Party are now playing. i,e. there’s a Pool Party plugin.

I have errors occurring when using LH-RDF; see the comments to track. Jan 2017

Planet, mingle & wordpress

While developing the new web site, I had a look at how my mingle was organised. The current regime has a conversion rules file for each output format and one for HTML. I need to incorporate the HTML output in a wordpress page and also apply the wordpress style rules to the HTML. I solved this problem by generating three html files, a feed, a source key and an output format key and then including them in the host page. Continue reading “Planet, mingle & wordpress”

Tag Clouds in WordPress

Tag Clouds have been bugging me for ages, and I have just installed, WP Category Tag Cloud, which is pretty awesome. I have used the short codes to set up a tag cloud on its own page, and also installed a moving three-D cloud on the About this Wiki page.  The featured picture is a picture generated by tagcloud.

Nulis, a new image header

I am thinking of expanding Nulis across my web estate and thought I might use a different header image for the blog. I experimented with using this as a the image or as a base for the image.

The image above is implemented as a hyperlink to the image hosted on flickr.  It is registered as  Copyright All rights reserved by lloydich, taken in 2014. It seems I need permission. Let’s see if he’ll give it to me, if not I’ll have to use one of mine.

 

Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter

I had a quick look at Nextscripts: Social Network Auto Poster. It claims to be able to forward posts to other social networks. These include as targets, twitter, linkedin and facebook. The also offer Google+ but that needs an additional library which may be chargeable. I need to work on this a bit more.

Since the blog is already forwarding to Facebook and now Medium via IFFTTT, which are the most important targets and I am unsure I want everything to go through to linkedin or even twitter, this may not be as useful as I hoped. I returned to this in Aug 2016 as I was interested in occasionally forwarding my micro blog to Medium. Continue reading “Nextscripts: Social Network Autoposter”

Cookies

While testing and demonstrating this wordpress based site to colleagues, I had problems with the Add This plugin. This was caused by my Ghostery settings which I use on all browsers that support it. This site uses the “Add This” plugin which uses cookies, and so Ghostery will block it, unless you set Ghostery to permit it. I have also now installed the EU Cookie Info plugin and I have amended the “About this Wiki” page to document the use of Cookies and repeat the advice on Ghostery. Continue reading “Cookies”
