WordPress Weekly #135 – Podcasting with WordPress

WordPress WeeklyIn this episode of WordPress Weekly, I was joined by Jeff Chandler and Matt Medeiros of Mattreport.com and founder of Slocumstudio.com. It was a great conversation and the first time that I’ve had a chance to speak with Matt. I really admire the things he is producing from a content perspective. This was the third show in a row that I was asked to participate, which I’m grateful for. With such technical experts around, it’s great to be able to have a conversation about my two favorite things, Podcasting and WordPress! I really enjoyed this episode a lot. I hope you do as well.

Skype Mobile Switcher uses a shortcode to switch between presenting a Skype call link and a phone number that can be clicked to call.

Dynamic Home Length adjusts the number of posts per page of the front page based on the total amount of text in all recent posts so that its height will automatically be in proportional with the height of your widget column.
