Hosting WordPress Behind NAT

Hiya. Just a quick note to let your know I recruited someone to write us some new docs :). After helping Soliah solve a problem with running WP behind NAT I persuaded him/her to write it up for the Advanced Topic section - Work is in progress here - User:Soliah/Hosting_WordPress_Behind_NAT. --Westi 11:41, 27 Jul 2005 (UTC)

It seems Soliah never came through on this :-(. Helped another user with a similar issue on the support forums the other day (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/43728) so have imported my ramblings from there to User:Westi/Hosting_WordPress_Behind_NAT it needs some work though - feel free to point people at it to hack and slash. --Westi 07:44, 5 Sep 2005 (GMT)

Thanks for the Welcome

Thanks for the welcome. I kinda threw that page up there without reading the instructions first, though I did try to format it consistantly with the rest of the pages. :) I don't wanna necessarily subscribe to mailing lists and put my name on the Task List page, because as I say in my user page, I'm not sure how much time I'm gonna have, to devote to the Codex. Probably not much, unfortunately. I simply want to update a page here and there. Like, for example, the get_currentuserinfo() page that I updated: the info on there was a terse single-line description. I had to research how it worked, in order to use it. So I thought I'd flesh it out, so that others wouldn't have to research it manually the way I did.

Lemme know if there's anything I should change, so I can get it up to your standards, and know what to do in the future. :)

  • I'm glad I could help. I won't be contributing anything else for sure until mid-August, unfortunately, as I'm going camping. But after that, if I run into anything else that needs a page, that I know something about, I'll definitely try to fill the void. :) - Zedd 19:12, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Schulte responds

You're welcome Lorelle. I watched the antics in the Recent changes that were related to the vandal and all the hoops that were jumped through to get things back to normal...nice work. I hope to contributing more regularly soon. Much on the plate lately. --Schulte 19:35, 28 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Images. Yep. I'll help you watch. There's a few I would ditch right away from the list at Unused Images, but that's me. I'll keep you posted if I see anything unusual on that front (not counting the currently missing thumbs some images could be generating). --Schulte 13:30, 1 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Adding Ads to WordPress page

Take a look at what I've done when you get a chance. I know it needs some editing, but any suggestions for anything to remove, add or clarify would be great.

Thanks. :)

Would you please let me know...

Why you deleted my WordPress-Theme Entry on the Themes_List? (Schistous) Thanks... (if you are behind this... - else i'm just confused) :-) --hi-my-name-is 09:24, 6 Aug 2005 (CET)


Okay, you could take over and do whatever you like User:alphaoide/wp powered photoblog --Joshua 05:22, 7 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Sorry I jumped the gun on the button. matt 02:53, 8 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the Welcome back - never got my play in the sun unfortunately had to go stay with my parents instead while my girlfriend went without me :(. However am feeling much better now. Cheers --Westi 21:13, 8 Aug 2005 (UTC)


From support forums:

  • "Change it to 666, edit away, then change it back. That's what it says to do in the Codex. Do it.".
Is that not rather harsh phrasing considering you changed the page AFTER I asked the question? --Bodnotbod 03:59, 28 Sep 2005 (GMT)

IRC Meetup

Hi Lorelle; I've a big problem today (and in the next 3 Wednesdays) for log the Meetup. I couldn't say you before, because just today my mother said me about the extra Spanish classes in school. I really love how my school is organized... See you :) --PS 18:12, 12 Oct 2005 (GMT)

Organizing Article Translations

Hi Lorelle, I have added translation(similar) articles in this pages : Search_Engine_Optimization_for_Wordpress & Styling_for_Print. Please take a look there and tell me if it must be added in other way ;)

Codex Search modification

A good example of why the current search needs to be modified is attempting to search for your wiki user page. Lorelle yields too many irrelelvant results, and even searching for specifically User:Lorelle (Please!) comes up blank. How is this a useable search?

I've been quite frustrated with this a number of times. I write to make sure no such Codex: namespace page already exists, and to recommend Codex:Search strategy.

Codex Print Styles

Hi. I was wondering if anyone was working on creating print styles for the Codex. There are several pages that could use the benefit of being printed out (the Installing WordPress and First Steps With WordPress walkthroughs come to mind) so a user could follow them without having to have the Codex on in the background.

Seeing as you're the Print Style guru, I thought I should turn to you first. Ghidra99 21:29, 18 Jan 2006 (GMT)

Welcome back! --Westi 14:29, 17 Aug 2006 (GMT)

moved page

Hey , I wonder where you moved this page, How_Wordpress_Processes_Entry_Text:

03:08, 22 January 2008 Lorelle (Talk | contribs) deleted "How Wordpress Processes Entry Text" ‎ (moved to better title)

I'd like to setup a redirect, or at least fix the broken link from the FAQ at FAQ_Advanced_Topics. Thanks! here 22:42, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


Good spot of the spam art in the headers.. I reverted your change - the actual image was a replacement for one that you originaly uploaded, so I've removed the spam image in favour of your original. A hard refresh might be required to see it. mrmist

Delete mistake page

Hi Lorelle, wondering if you could look after a page delete - no_admin_bar(), I created it by mistake, or it can redirect to show_admin_bar()

Guideline missing

Thanks for your reply. BTW I want to make sure that is this kind of self-promotion acceptable? [1] Since the guideline didn't mention about promotion and there's no community consensus and we are having a little argument here [2], I'd like to ask a sysop for the final decision.--Tommyang 16:48, 2 March 2011 (UTC)

There is no debate or room for leniency here.

1. If it looks like spam or self-promotion and a key member of our docs team says so, it's done. Gone. I trust them. If they think it smells, it smells.

2. We do not permit any form of self-promotion on the WordPress Codex. That is part of the reason we take the "I" out of all the content.

Thanks for the thanks

Lorelle - Thanks for the comments on my user talk page. More importantly, I aim those same thanks back at you for your many years of Codex contributions. Hope you are still having fun! --MichaelH (talk) 12:52, 23 May 2012 (UTC)

Please watch edits so special characters don't get lost

Hi Lorelle--just a reminder to watch your edits so things like Chinese characters don't get lost. To see how I fixed one of them visit http://codex.wordpress.org/index.php?title=Pages&diff=119300&oldid=119297 Regards. --MichaelH (talk) 13:32, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
