Today i published my new wordpress plugin, which control user navigation. The plugin name is “Close Warning”.

It prompts the user a confirmation message before they close the browser window or tab. After that a lightweight window popup jumps up with your preset announcement or message  (in richtext format)

The Advantages >>

  1. You can avoid the accidental close of browser window
  2. You can tell or mention any message or offers before they navigate away from your website
  3. It works not only on closing, but in any type of external navigation (Internal navigation is screened out from this warning)
  4. Since it is built on lightweight window support, your message or warning appears very eye-catchy

You can download the plugin from : http://www.sajithmr.com/downloads/onclose-warning.zip

From the setting page, you can set your rich text message or warning / offer . See the screen shot:

Please feel free to mail me regarding any clarification and upgrade to admin@sajithmr.com

Google Chrome

03 Sep 2008

10 Features of Google Chrome – Youtube Video

[youtube:http://in.youtube.com/watch?v=Xlh8gSF_hhE]

Yes, a browser with very simple layout. The features i like in this new browser is its full screee view. The only thing in the top area is the location bar. No other menus or buttons or panels are there. It gives a comfort feeling. (All other browsers are very congested )

The Competition is started

Another feature i like to see was that task manager. I was searching for such a plugin in mozilla. Which tabs takes more memory , more internet resources etc. And we can even end the process . Good approach google. Hats off.

The next feature i like is downloading files. It never ask for location for saving. After download you can save as you wish (You can drag the downloaded file anywhere in your computer ). So when you want to download , just download it !!!

On the very first day, i got a crashed warning message from chrome while i browsing !!!

Google Chrome Crashed

But there was option to restart, so saved  all the tabs.

Another feature i liked is it error display mechanism. It shows proper error and proper solution just like google style :)

Dns Error Chrome

One feature i expect was the warning before closing tabs. When i closed the browser, all the tab get closed without any warning.. I think firefox made me to think like this .

And in option , you can see the saved passwords (without any masking !!!) .  That is a bad feature i think.Lets expect more features in the coming update .

And about wordpress editor; some of the functions of WYSWUG wordpress editor is not working with chrome. I think this is because of the javascript compatibility  .

From a developer angle , i got one more browser to test a webpage  (How it appears after changing the html, javascript and css )

If you know this feature already , skip this article. But i have to ask a single question at the end of this section .

For wordpress version less than 2.3 , Go to Options  >  writing, and  for greater than 2.3, Go to settings > writing

What you have to do is create an email account with pop3 support

You can see the heading “Post via e-mail” there.

Enter your email server (by replacing mail.example.com)

Enter your pop3 port. (110 by default)

Enter your email login and password.

Choose a category to for the email entry posts

Finally Press update option Button

What you have done above is only the settings. For grabbing or pulling the content from email, you need to call/trigger an url.

That url is: http://yourblogdomain/wordpressinstalldir/wp-mail.php

Either you can call it manually. Or you can set up a cron job for that url by call the url using wget or like functions

Another simple mechanism to call this email trigger is use a hidden iframe in your blog template. (anywhere)

<iframe width=”0″ height=”0″  style=”display:none”  src=”http://yourblogdomain/wordpressinstalldir/wp-mail.php“></iframe>

The problem with this email posting is , it strips all the html tags before entering into wordpress database.

The is no way to find the attachments from an email.

So I decided to start a wordpress plugin which does the above missing properties. If there is any ‘working’ plugin available, please let me know, so that  I can avoid the re-inventing of wheel .

Thanks
