Fix Full Screen Issues by Video Embedder WordPress Plugin

If you are hav­ing prob­lems try­ing to dis­play an embed­ded video(s) in your posts like me, then this might help you out. I usu­al­ly embed videos from Hulu, Vimeo and YouTube most­ly. But it’s been a prob­lem try­ing to have the lat­ter 2 dis­play in fullscreen mode.

For Vimeo, the fullscreen icon/grpahic dis­plays on the over­lay of the video. But press­ing on it, just paus­es the video and noth­ing else. For YouTube, there was no fullscreen icon/graphic in the first place. I think that might have been caused by some code changes on YouTube’s end.

Mean­while, it seems that the author of Video Embed­der, Kristof­fer Fors­gren, hasn’t been able to update the plu­g­in since 2009. So for those like me who still finds good use for the plu­g­in, it was a let down not find­ing any new comments/updates since August of 2009.

Separate Pings/Trackbacks from Total Comment Count in WordPress

After tak­ing a look at some search results and at Matt Martz’ arti­cle, Sep­a­rat­ing Pings from Com­ments in Word­Press 2.7, I still had some issues with par­tic­u­lar­ly the com­ment count. There were also a prob­lem with how the func­tions I have added/modified are being car­ried across in my tem­plates (but prob­a­bly are most­ly in the scope of this Blue­print theme). The files that we’re most­ly going to deal with are these ones: comments.php, functions.php and single.php.

Any­ways, I just want to note here how I took care of them and what I end­ed up with.

WordPresss Plugins Search

Search­ing for Word­Press Plu­g­ins seems to not be very help­ful. The results that comes up on the page ain’t help­ing out. Although, there’s a “you may also try your search at Google” link below the results page—it should be eas­i­er to find the right ones.

Hmmm… will see if I have time to cre­ate maybe a boor­marklet. Unless there’s one already… any­one? For the time being, book­mark­ing or copy-and-past­ing the fol­low­ing would be best and make things effi­cient:

Note: You should be able to add your search keyword(s) after the “+” plus-sign. For exam­ple:
