Oh Great! WordPress 3.3 is now here!

Oh well, just another WordPress upgrade before the year ends. I still haven’t updated mine because my WP admin might go to havoc as I’m using Dean J. Robinson’s super awesome Fluency plugin. I really don’t want another admin panel mayhem, just like what happened before. Good thing, after a few weeks, Dean found time to update his sleek plugin and made it compatible with WordPress 3.2!

Now, Matt Mullenweg announced Sonny and this made me feel so excited because of its new awesome features. I have updated my other blogs to WordPress 3.3 (blogs that doesn’t use Dean’s Fluency admin plugin), and I loved the outcome! The admin panel is cleaner and sleeker, but still, I love fluency.

Modify the WordPress Tag Cloud Widget Easily


There are numerous ways of how to modify the WordPress tag cloud widget, but there’s an easy way to modify it. I searched about how to modify such, and landed on different blogs sharing different methods to modify the widget. I also landed on this page which tells everyone to modify the WordPress core. But I don’t think it’s the best solution to customize your WordPress Tag cloud.

WordPress Fatal Error in wp-db.php on line 774

Wow, I just noticed that my blog is now full of WordPress fatal errors and how to fix it. I admit, I’m a certified WordPress junkie. Haha! This is my 78th blog post and my 12th WordPress error post. So… I’ll tag this one as WordPress and… I think just WordPress.

This error is clasified as 500 Internal Server Error. This simply means that the server is the main cause that’s why this error occurred. If you’re familiar with the Fatal error Allowed memory size of [RANDOM NUMBERS HERE] bytes exhausted (tried to allocate [ANOTHER RANDOM NUMBERS HERE] bytes) in /home/user/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 774, then you’ll have an idea that the main cause of this error is your server’s memory allocation to the specific user.

Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction() upgrade error and how to fix it!

I have a blog that wasn’t update for a very long time. Its last post was March 25, 2009. I’m still using WordPress 2.7 in that blog. After attempting to upgrade it to WordPress 3.2, I encountered the error: Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction().

Now I wonder why I cannot update it. I tried figuring it by disabling my current WordPress plugins one by one, until I disabled WPAU. WPAU is the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin which is completely useless in the newer version of WordPress. Why? Because the WordPress core itself has an automatic upgrade feature and you don’t need to use this plugin to upgrade your blog to the latest WP version.
