Dale Mugford from Brave New Code joins me in this video interview to discuss their latest WordPress plugin – WordTwit Pro. WordTwit Pro is a WordPress plugin which adds powerful, easy-to-use Twitter features to WordPress. Publish tweets about your new posts to Twitter account(s) automatically.
Brave New code are also behind the WordPress plugin WP Touch Pro, which adds powerful easy-to-use features to WordPress for mobile + tablet theme support. It’s also a powerful theming framework, perfect for creating awesome mobile & tablet optimised versions of websites. I interviewed Dale regarding WPTouch Pro in an earlier podcast.
Dale also announced new features that are coming soon, including Facebook integration with WordTwit Pro and much more.
In my latest podcast, I chat with Jon Fox who is the co-founder, mastermind and code monkey of IntenseDebate.
With IntenseDebate, you can let your readers post comments using services like Facebook, Twitter, and OpenID. They can also sign up for an IntenseDebate profile or simply comment without one as a Guest. E-mail notifications alert you and your readers of new comments, encouraging return visits and additional commenting. You can reply to and moderate comments via email, while threading makes it easy to follow the conversation and many more features that are described in this podcast.
I am sure many of you like myself now own either an Apple iPhone or iPod Touch, enjoying the Internet browser capabilities as part of the feature set. The ability to check emails on the move is a blessing and a curse as although you can keep an eye on your inbox wherever you may be, the urge to check just one more time and responding to those so called ‘urgent’ requests will more than likely have you in up to the neck in deep murky water with your loved ones from time to time.
I hate being disconnected from this information though and now many sites use an iPhone and iPod Touch compatible theme, feature an App on the Apple iTunes Store for a slightly different viewing experience or at the very least add a little bit of code so that its easier to scroll for these modern mobile devices.
My blog and indeed my Yamaha keyboard and digital piano enthusiast website both have an iPhone/iPod Touch theme designed specifically for these devices (and others of course!), allowing to view the latest posts and features, run a site search, listen to podcasts and comment on articles.

- Interview with Dan Kuykendall – developer of the plugin ‘PodPress‘
If you have listened to any of my blogcasts, you will have at some point used (without maybe knowing even), the fantastic plugin ‘PodPress’, written for WordPress by Dan Kuykendall from the Mighty Seek website. With a huge array of options and media choices, you can provide audio podcasts (or blogcasts as I prefer to call them) and even video to your visitors via your website and iTunes.
PodPress is used here on my own blogsite and has made the whole process very simple indeed. Dan has been extremely helpful with queries and feature requests, so make sure you pop over to his website and new discussion forum and congratulate him on his hard work for the benefit of so many people.
