Ridiculously Easy WordPress Tricks

My compiled list of WordPress tricks that I wish I would have known earlier:

  • Permalink setting
  • Drag and Drop Image to Blog Post
  • Prevent SPAM
  • Rearrange Post Order
  • Add Google Analytics to Dashboard

Permalink setting


Use post name versus default. Default is shallwelearn.com/blog/?p=123 , and postname-based permalink is shallwelearn.com/blog/sample-post/

Drag and Drop Image to Blog Post

I can drag and drop the images from my desktop (Windows) to the post in FireFox (tested with version 25)

Prevent SPAM

Install Akismet plugin (http://akismet.com/) or just go to Plugins and search for Akismet

Re-arrange post order

I installed “Simple Custom Post Order” plugin, which provides drag and drop reordering of the posts.

Add Google Analytics to the WordPress Dashboard

Install the plugin by following the instruction from this plugin site http://wordpress.org/plugins/google-analytics-for-wordpress/



  1. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Behind boosting underclothing like padded panties and butt-lifting underwear are the fake butt-improvement devices that are becoming less stigmatizing in recent times. A program like Nick Nilsson’s is the only tried and tested method to have control over the rate and effectiveness of your buttock building initiatives.
