I have previously written about customizing WordPress using a custom field function to change the title that displays at the top of a page allowing you to have, for instance, a link in the side bar to the home page called “Home” but a different title on that page such as “Welcome” instead of “Home”.
That was handy but took some modification of the theme template files. If you changed your theme you had to carry over those changes to the new theme to retain the custom page titles.
Now there’s a simple plugin that does all the work for you and adds the ability to customize the display titles of posts as well which I had not included in the original method and makes changing theme template files unnecessary.

The powerful PodPress plugin for WordPress seems to have a problem with the new post revisions feature of WordPress 2.6. For many the solution has been to disable the post revision feature — but I happen to think that the post revision feature is a good thing.
Go here for a post by Andrew Ozz that explains how to fix the problem. Note that if you’re using PodPress version 8.8 you’ll find the fix in the comments section of that post.
One of the things that so nice about WordPress 2.6 is the ability to easily insert a mini photo gallery into your post. There’s also some handy gallery shortcode that give you options for the number of columns, the size of thumbnails and more.
WordPress 2.6 has been released with several worthwhile improvements. Check out the brief tour video.
