I just finished making a tutorial on creating options pages and letting your plugins be configurable. It bases the example plugin off of Mark Jaquith’s video tutorial. (It also teaches a bit about register_activation_hook, because that is an important part for making plugins configurable.)Hopefully I’ll get around to making a video-version of this plugin soon, so things are more easy to understand.
But for now, there are still two versions available: A PDF version and the original OpenOffice ODT file.

Otherwise, the plugin will serve the locally-hosted (on that server) image.

I previously had some problems when I mixed Unicode with WordPress. Every time I typed a Unicode character, (after posting) it would display as a ‘?’. This post will describe how to fix this.
