Options include the ability to enter a password to allow you to edit or delete your text, and the choice to use preformatted text and make links clickable. More »

Scheduled Post Shift Plugin for WordPress

This plugin automatically takes your oldest post, and updates its timestamp so that it appears as the latest post on your WordPress site. It does this by utilizing the cron feature built into WordPress 2.1 (and newer). It can rotate all the posts on your site, or just ones in specific categories. You can currently schedule it by setting the number of hours between shifts. For example, set it to 24 hours and it will shift the oldest post every day, at the time that you enabled it. You can also choose to only shift a post if it has been more than a set number of hours since the last post. More »
