This section is where we keep everything related to every open source script and app we evaluate for recommendation to our customers. The purpose here is to create our own arsenal of the best tools and scripts on the web. Because there are a lot of different software products for any given need the best thing to do, we have found, is to evaluate everything that comes along as if we were going to use it on a customer’s site. Which is in fact what happens down the line when we recommend our clients an app for a specific purpose.

Please Note: The content here was written to address our internal needs but we decided to open the blog to the public because we believe the information contained herein should be shared with the public at large.

Researching a WordPress Related Links Solution

headmaster @ 10:07 pm

WordPress LogoI want to display a list of related links for each post on my blog; this very blog in fact. I also want to be able to add external links to the related links from my site seamlessly. It is unfortunate that WordPress doesn’t have such a feature as a default widget, being that it is something very common across the web nowadays.

In this post we will be looking at ExoScript’s Exo PHPDesk and determine into which of these 3 categories it falls.
