Did you know that CSS can help you in making your copyright visible with scraper sites who have shamelessly stolen your content? It’s not foolproof and a smart scraper will find out how to work around this, but for any automated scraper simply stealing off your published feed, this will work.
Albeit this is not exactly a WordPress versus TypePad matter, it is interesting since access to CSS comes at a very different price inWordPress compared to TypePad.
So far I have praised WordPress’ functionality and made it the main reason for why I would choose WordPress over TypePad. There’s one functionality, though, where TypePad takes the lead, and that is the ability to design your own theme from scratch, even without using any CSS.
This week seems to be a philosophical week. After first pondering the supposed pros of an ad-free blog, then discovering that my blog is in fact not so ad-free after all, the question naturally arises: What to do next?
So should I go back to TypePad, because at least there I have control over my ads? Or stay with WordPress, because of the added functionality I have here? Just looking at the scoreboard should be enough to convince me. I have already moved my blog to WordPress, but do I really want to stay here now?
Many of you will already know that I change my theme every now and then. Why? Simply to better understand WordPress and to really see which theme that is best suited to my blogging goals. Today I came across two strange things in the CSS of the theme I am currently using. After a question in the Forum and an inquiry to WordPress support I got the answer why the CSS is causing some hickups in my theme. I would never have found out had I not used this theme, but as it looks like, I’m not sure WordPress is going to do anything about it.
