Ignore Plugin Updates

  1. joshposh


    I like to keep an older version of a plugin in some cases. It would be nice if I could add them to an ignore list for the update check so WordPress wouldn't annoy me with the little number in the menu next to the plugin-page-link.

    Provides a quick and easy way to add widgets as part of a theme without any additional PHP code.

    This plugin searches the themes directory for .widget.php files. When it finds one it will add the contents of the file as a widget that can be added to any dynamic sidebar.

    This plugin requires PHP5

    Add to the plugin directory then activate it.

    There are no options


    To create a new widget, with the plugin activated, follow these steps:

    Step 1 - Create a new file in your theme called {something}.widget.php

    Step 2 - Add a PHP comment at the top of the file. For example:

    Widget Name: 3 Random Posts
    Widget Description: Outputs 3 random posts in a list

    Step 3 - Add the theme tags and code you want in your widget.

    Step 4 - Open the WordPress admin and use widgets in the normal way.

    RefGenerator helps you reference all the external links included in your post

    Refgenerator is used to insert at the end of any post the list of all external links used in your post. The links are sorted in order of appearance. Refgenerator is a 2 in 1 plugin in such a way that it can generate the list using 2 differents methods (ie you can use mainly PHP or pure Javascript to generate and sort the list).

    1. Unzip into your /wp-content/plugins/ directory. If you're uploading it make sure to upload the top-level folder.
    2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress
    3. Visit your Refgenerator options (Options - Refgenerator) for WordPress 2.3.x, (Settings - Refgenerator) for WordPress 2.5.x

    Q: Why doesn't it work for me?

    A: The problem is with your WordPress theme. Either the template does not include get_header() in its templates pages or the author of the template forgot to include wp_header() in the header.php file and/or wp_footer in the footer.php of the WordPress theme. Be sure to look at the default theme, or other quality themes (eg: standards-compliant XHTML and CSS) to see how they work

    Q: I'm using the advanced method but it it does not work for me ?

    A: To use the advanced method you must have a well understanding of html and of the WordPress Loop to determine the html class and id attributes to make the plugin works. If you don't know them because you're not familiar with coding and/or debugging html I shall advise you to use the PHP method.

    Q: Can I change the generated list class attributes or the generated list appearance ?

    A: Of course, in order to do so, you must edit the CSS files you'll find in the css subdirectory in the plugin directory

    Replaces the Genesis Secondary Menu with a dynamic listing of the current section's subpages. You must be using the Genesis Theme.

    Replaces the Genesis Secondary Menu with a dynamic listing of the current section's subpages. You must be using the Genesis Theme Framework, and your child theme must support the Secondary Menu theme location.

    Simply activate the plugin, then go to a page with subpages. It should list all the subpages in the secondary menu. Navigating to a subpage will keep the same menu (it lists all subpages of top level page, not current page).

    If you go to Appearance > Menus, it will show the Secondary Menu location as currently set to "Genesis Subpages".

    Want a similar listing in your sidebar? Use my BE Subpages Widget plugin

    Add a watermark image to your WordPress header image and use suitable images from your media library as the header image(s).

    Header Watermark provides you with extra flexibility and control over the header image(s) for your WordPress site:

    • Use any image from your Media Library as a watermark for your header image(s)
    • Control the placement and opacity of the watermark
    • Select any suitable image from your Media Library as your header image(s)
    • Control which images are used for random header images
    1. Install Header Watermark either via the WordPress.org plugin directory, or upload the header-watermark directory to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
    2. Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
    3. Select the Header Watermark item in the Appearance menu to configure the plugin

    • Fixed a bug caused by wrong plugin directory reference.


    Header Watermark requires the following to work:

    • GD Library PHP extension - version 2.0.28 or higher
    • The WordPress theme must use the get_header_image() function to generate the header image and must also define the HEADER_IMAGE_WIDTH and HEADER_IMAGE_HEIGHT constants


    This plugin works with the Twenty Ten theme with no further configuration.

    If you use this plugin with the Twenty Eleven theme, you may see a notice at the top of your website/WordPress admin pages like this:

    Notice: Constant HEADER_IMAGE already defined in /var/www/yoursite/wordpress/wp-content/themes/twentyeleven/functions.php on line 118

    You may also find that you get occasional errors on some WordPress admin pages, for example if you activate a different theme.

    To prevent the notice and errors, find and change the following line in the functions.php file of the Twenty Eleven theme:

    Change this:

    define( 'HEADER_IMAGE', '' );

    to this:

    if ( ! defined( 'HEADER_IMAGE' ) ) {
      define( 'HEADER_IMAGE', '' );

    Any other themes that define the HEADER_IMAGE constant may have the same problems and need to be altered in the same way for the plugin to work.
