At Interconnect IT / Spectacu.la my colleague James has developed a new version of the popular Spectacu.la Threaded Comments plugin. It’s not yet in release form, but you can grab it from the WordPress.org repository via svn if you know how at http://svn.wp-plugins.org/spectacula-threaded-comments/trunk/ I’m bringing it up here because I’ve decided to trial the plugin […]

I’ve been telling anyone who’ll listen that having a web presence is free and simple, and doesn’t need to be opaque to the search engines. It can be standards compliant, easy to find, and well structured. You can change the content as and when you like. You can add pictures and so on. And it’s […]
