WordPress.com Posting in Sidebar

WordPress.com Posting in SidebarWordPress.com makes for a great publishing platform.

Some folks out there have e-mailed me and asked for an easier way to post to it. Well, after doing some searching I ran across an extension that will let you blog from your sidebar in Firefox.

The WordPress.com Sidebar extension puts a button in your browser that allows you to click it and open up an editor on the sidebar where you can get your posting done.

WordPress Installing via Firefox Extension

One Click Installer for WordPressNow I love WordPress, and I use it for nearly all of my various Web projects. I agree with the mass majority that installing WordPress plugins and themes can sometimes be a pain. Sure it isn’t rocket science, but it could be a little easier.

The OneClick Installer for WordPress extension for Firefox hopes to change that for me. A very unique idea indeed – this extension promises to give you that “one click” install process for any WordPress theme or plugin out there.

This makes the job of customizing your WordPress install just a little easier for folks that don’t want to dive into the HTML editors and FTP clients to get things done. To learn more about it, you can check out the author’s post on it – or check it out for yourself at the Mozilla addons web site.
