Multiple Site Admin Permission Solution in WordPress MU…Kind Of

Now what do I do?Admission: I am a tech-freak. My idea of Christmas presents this year? WEB SITES FOR EVERYONE! Now, I made this decision and just started purchasing domain names. As an afterthought (I know…great time to think about it), it occurred to me that I am the only web-minded person in the family. Great! Now everyone has a website that they are going to want help maintaining. Great planning, kruser! Then it hit me (again…my timing is impeccable), I have WordPress MU! Problem solved. But wait, there’s more. One of the sites was for my niece, a rather web-centric person as well. I wanted her to have full reign of her own domain instead of being bound to my themes and plugins.

Get WP-Slimbox2 to Autodetect Additional File Extensions

WordPress Logo

Those of us that use WP-Slimbox2 plugin for WordPress (by Transient Monkey) have the simplest Lightbox/Slimbox integration yet. All we have to do is include an image link in the post, and WP-Slimbox2 does the rest. There is only one problem with it: by default it only autodetects .jpg, .png, and .gif file extensions. This is fine, if those are the only file extensions you use. What if you have some .jpeg or .bmp files referenced? It does not autodetect those extensions. Luckily, there is a fix. Continue reading
