    Disk Space Pie Chart Plugin 

    I’ve written a Plugin that shows your free and used server space as a funky Pie Chart in your backend. It also shows a percentage bar in your WordPress dahsboard.

    Following the success of my server space script for one of my clients, I thought it would be great to use it under WordPress. This Plugin was inspired by Richard who came to host with me after being on WordPress.com for some years. He really liked to keep track of how much space he has left to upload pictures and I was happy to take on this challenge.

    Special thanks again to Rasmus Peters for his amazing PHP Pie Chart Script 😉

    Upgrading WordPress… FAILED! 

    We’ve all been there many times: a new WordPress Version comes out, you think you’re upgraded in under a minute, and then this message comes up to tell you that you’re not:

    WordPress Upgrade Failed!


    Let me talk you through the many many possibilities for this and what you can do to make this work after all…

    Why does WordPress ask for your FTP Details 

    So you’re upgrading a Plugin, a Theme or the WordPress Core. Thanks to the built-in upgrade function it’s a piece of cake for most of us. But have you noticed that on some installations WordPress will ask for your FTP credentials, while on others it doesn’t?

    I certainly have, and I wondered how this could be explained. I have installations on the same server that behave differently, so it can’t be a server issue. It must have to do with the way WordPress was installed (Fantastico installs don’t ask for credentials, whereas manual installs do).

    More to the point: how can we avoid this from happening? Let me share my findings with you 😉

      Option 1 was fairly easy to do. Thank you! I thought I had to go to Option 4 and just deal with it. Hehe.

    Adios IntenseDebate! 

    For those of you following comments on my sites via IntenseDebate, I’m sorry to say that I’ve decided not to use the system anymore. I used it here on WP Guru and over at versluis.com to provide an easier commenting experience for my readers and more comfortable back end features for myself.

    Turns out it wasn’t all that good for either of us I guess. Let me explain.

    Please be aware that you need to re-subscribe to topics if you still want to follow them via email.

      You should really look into Comment Love, this is wordpress plugin that is similar to intensedebate only specifically written for WP. It was developed by Andy Bailey and the community is awesome. I would leave you me url but it be sites as spam. Instead go directly to there site comluv.com if you do decide it works for you, a comment on my site would show luv.

      Hopes this helps.

        Good call Gilberto, thanks for bringing Comment Love to my attention. I’ll certainly have a look at it 😉

      Thank you for using my plugin 🙂 Reading that you ditched IntenseDebate makes me very happy! I hate it, that’s why I started developing my own code eheh.

      In their defense, several months after my third email to IntenseDebate I actually got this surprising reply:

      Hi Jay,

      I apologize for the major delay and frustration. We will be releasing the next version of our plugin in the coming weeks. We would love it if you gave ID another try once that is available.

      ID is still very much alive. our contact form is reopening tomorrow morning and we’re excited to welcome the world famous WordPress.com support team of Happiness Engineers to IntenseDebate as well.

      We will post to our blog at http://blog.intensedebate.com when the new version is available.

      Kind regards,

      Michael Koenig
