Would it be possible to post a link to a blog that I've already created at http://redochresblog.blogspot.com

I've already been working on this one for a while, and it would be cool if it were accessible on this site without having to pull up stakes and move to a different one.

Thanks

The first plugin is discontinued and no longer works. I have removed the existing Google Analytics plugin due to it's issues, however and replaced it with http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/goo ... ite-async/ which appears to work just fine. Just go into the Settings area and set your UA code.

The second plugin you linked has been installed and should work just fine.

While I understand your not wanting to move, at this time, the "featured blogs" section are for blogs only on TFBS.

I will look into adding an off-site option, however. In the interim, should you ever wish to move, there is an import plugin for the popular blog sites in use today.

Mhmm, out of curiosity, my games tend to be very small filesize wise, currently at about 350 KB(If I leave the source code out, about 250 KB). Would uploading small zipped games there be okay bandwidth wise? If so, what would the reasonable restriction be on file sizes?

I don't have a problem using fileshare sites, but it feels a bit silly having to upload something under 1 MB to such a site. Currently pondering ways I can upload games so non-forum members here can download them.

Also an answer to this would be helpful to those that want to upload say large caption pics without causing a problem.

Anything under 2MB shouldn't be an issue. I think I have it limited to 4MB per file.

[edit]
Just verified. There is a 5MB per file limit, subject to the same restrictions of this site ( files greater than 1MB in size go full speed for 1MB then throttle based on number of downloads ).

Acceptable file types that can be uploaded:

Sorry to bug you... i cant figure out the new poll widget x.x - I added the poll widget which seems to only list new polls as well as gives an archive of previous polls.. using new post or new page gives a poll button though that is only to link the current poll to the post/page. There is no poll option under any of the settings or tools categories either and while it says to activate it in plugins there isnt one there either (though you likely activated it on your end since it shows up in widgets).
.. for the life of me i cant figure out how to actually create a new poll x.x I looked at the link you gave and though I read through about several dozen help pages as well as the main documentation, I still cant figure it out x.x

Go to your blog admin panel, then to widgets. Drag polls to the right side menu.

Then you can go to the polls section and add/edit the available polls. The widgets menu is where you select which poll appears (default is the latest poll).
