If your editorial process is set up in such a way that you need to approve posts, then you’ve no doubt run into the slightly annoying process of having to go back and forth between the backend and the frontend of your site all the time.
If you’re looking to run a job board with WordPress, then we have some good news for you. There are a number of nice solutions out there that offer a range of impressive functions and designs.
As always, of course, you might not get everything you’re looking for in one solution. You might think one has everything you want, but then you start looking at another, and you see something that you didn’t think of before. And having seen it, you decide you have to have that too.
Frustrated that you can’t get your videos centered in your WordPress posts? Maybe you have a post that looks like this:
This quick tip will help you.
With WordPress, you can go to a place like YouTube, copy the URL, put it into your post, and your video will show up automatically.
With this little trick, however, you will need to get the full embed code (not just the URL).
Once you have the embed code, go the TEXT tab in your editor, and put the your embed code in the middle of the following snippet of code where it says “embed-code.” (*Code updated.)

Here are a few more quick overview stats:
35-44 year olds were the group with the highest rate of recognition at 37.1%
32.1% of males said they had heard of the platform while 28.1% of females said they had
34.8% of urban populations, 26.6% of suburban populations, and 23.6% of rural populations had heard of WordPress
This is just a quick little tip to make things a little easier for you—and maybe more importantly, for your clients.
If you’ve ever found yourself logged out of your site, and you don’t have a link to the admin area on the front end, then of course you can just type in the following to get to the backend.
While that’s certainly easy, there’s an even easier way. And, again, maybe more importantly, this will be easier for your clients too. For someone not familiar with WordPress, the “wp-admin” part is hard to remember and even looks messy and complicated.
Although the wordpress.org directory doesn’t like our Autoblog plugin (they won’t let it in), we sure do. That’s why we continue to work on it.
We’ll get into the deal with the wordpress.org directory at the end; for now, however, we’ve got some good news for those of you who do appreciate what a powerful, easy-to-use tool it is.
In addition to some tuning up, Autoblog recently received several new add-ons. (Add-ons are like plugins for a plugin. You can activate them or not, depending on what you need.)
Append Text to Post Add-on
By default, WordPress is presented in U.S. English. But you can change that if you’d prefer another language.
