  1. Once Upon - today and tomorrow

    Lovely reworking of Google+, YouTube and Facebook in the style of the 1997 web. I am always going to love the various looks of the 1990s web. (via Waxy)

  2. Debunking the Cul-de-Sac - Design - The Atlantic Cities

    Looking at the change of US city layouts from grids to increasingly dead-end cul-de-sacs. (via Tom Taylor)

  3. Knyle Style Sheets — Warpspire

    Nice idea, a parseable format for commenting CSS. (via Dotcode)

  4. Types Plugin - Create Custom Post Types and Manage Custom Fields

    From the people behind WPML (so it works well with that) this plugin does both custom post types and fields. Some slightly rough edges (it’s new), and no relationship field, but otherwise good. (And no need to use the accompanying pay-for Views plugin.)

  5. WordPress › Custom Post Type UI « WordPress Plugins

    There are loads of Custom Post Type plugins (or you can do it in manually in code) and this seemed like one of the better ones.

  6. WordPress › Advanced Custom Fields « WordPress Plugins

    From the myriad of WP custom fields plugins this seemed like about the best. Nice UIs and a very handy ‘relationship’ field. Unfortunately it didn’t quite work well with WPML.

  7. WPML - The WordPress Multilingual Plugin

    Comprehensive plugin for translating and managing a multilingual site built on WordPress. Multi-language Posts, Pages, Custom Post Types, Themes, etc. Inevitably a bit complicated and slightly kludgy, but seems to work well.

  8. A Better Related Posts Plugin – Nicolas Kuttler

    I haven’t fully tested this with lots of real content yet but an initial view suggests this is nicely tweakable, and easy to use. And works with Custom Post Types. And (so far, I think) WPML.

  9. Introducing Rickshaw: A JavaScript toolkit for creating interactive time series graphs | shutterbits

    Bookmark a couple of JavaScript graphy libraries and a new one pops up like magic! (via @revdancatt)

  10. Wordpress posts order - Post Types Order | Nsp Code

    Very simple way to re-order posts. Handles Custom Post Types. $25 Advanced version is nicer, and is compatible with WPML.

  11. TimThumb - Image Resizer for WordPress

    Dynamic generation of differently-sized images for WordPress using GD.

  12. WordPress › CMS Tree Page View « WordPress Plugins

    Looks like it might be a good way to organise pages in WordPress. Lets you reorder Custom Post Types (but not standard Posts), and works with WPML.

  13. Emprise JavaScript Charts™ :: 100% Pure JavaScript Charts

    Another charting library. Looks good too I think. Non-watermarked version is $100 upwards.

  14. JS Charts - Free JavaScript charts

    Looks like a good library for drawing charts/graphs in JavaScript. Costs $39 upwards for a non-watermarked version.

    I'm so conditioned by video region blocking it didn't even occur to me that Louis CK's self-produced $5 show would be available In the UK.

    Yeah, Smile, why would you want to tell customers it can take two months for you to print out copies of old statements? Let them wait! Grrr.
