PostTwiOAuth upgrade to v0.30

It is so fast. macminiosx announce v0.30 of PostTwiOAuth plugin of MovableType is released.
It is better than the old v0.21. More features, acutally I did not use them. Say Google Analytics, etc.
Here if you installed v0.21 before, you have to remove the whole folder and ftp v0.30 files under plugins folder.
Still need to change retweetmaker.cgi to 755.
Not just replace the old one, you still need to re-setup the token of it.
Here is the link, you can download zip file or gz file there.
Good luck.

WordPress and Simple Tags

I have an installation of WordPress for one of my Blog. It is running over one year.
For WordPress, I have something to record related to the tag, the most important feature of Web2.0 or Blog.
As every WP fans know, WordPress is V2.3.1 now. It is free for download, and Open Sourced.
The embedded tag system of WP 2.3.1 is still not good enough. So I try to find a better one, not the best one.
Simple Tags is popped up into my eye. The latest version is 1.2, works on WordPress 2.3.x. That means it is WordPress 2.3.x native plugin.
To install it is very simply, I don’t want to repeat the readme file of the download package. You can find it.
To use it, is also very easy.
I’d like to list some feature I do like.
1) Suggested tags
2) Mass Edit Tags
3) Related posts
4) Tag cloud
5) Post without tags
At the end of this post, the site I mentioned in the beginning is Self-Study Resource.

Anti Forum spammer by SpamWords

As I mentioned before, I install a Spamwords 1.1.3 plugin on PHPBB 2.0.22. After about one and half month use, I feel it is so good to provent lots of spam from displaying on my G2Soft Support forum.
It is like a Wall to protect the phpbb. The spammer is blocked and the IP address is banned either.
Let me list some popular spam words I used when detect the message.
There are three types of spam words.
1) Adult content;
2) Medicine;
3) fake software;
4) Other items, say, Furniture;
The list of spam words keep growing. When I see some new type of Spam, I will add these into the spam words. So next time some spammers try to post will be blocked.
During past 1 and half month, it blocked over one hundred spams. It is not including the spam post I deleted manually about 10 posts.
This Spam Words is good and powerfull. If you have a PHPBB forum. I highly recommend it to you to protect your system.
