Weird Date on Screencast #47

When #47 originally went out, I screwed up the date on it. It had 8/11/19 for the date, which is obviously far in the future =). So new screencasts are not automatically downloading in iTunes because it only downloads the latest one. To fix this, you can simply unsubscribe and resubscribe, or just ditch that one when you are done with it. The date has been fixed.

Clickmap Demo Turned into WordPress Plugin

Roger Stringer turned the clickmap demo from yesterday into a WordPress plugin. All you do is activate it and it starts saving clicks from all the different pages on your site. You can then pull from a dropdown and see the clickmap overlay on that page in an iframe.

It’s pretty cool, but it’s pretty raw in plugin format right now. It needs jQuery to run, and the plugin manually loads it, so watch out for that if you are already loading jQuery. It also has the potential to seriously increase the size of your WordPress database extremely. Just a heads up.
