Chinese Version Online

Tuesday, July 19th, 2005

It;s a bit weird for me to put Simplified Chinese translations on this English-only site.
So, I decided to set up a Chinese version. Hope this will help promote the use of WordPress in more Chinese bloggers.

Site Statistics WordPress plugin: StatTraq

Sunday, July 17th, 2005

Randy has released StatTraq Beta 1.0b, which is a site statistics logging plugin for WordPress. I just tested it in WP 1.5.

Here are the basic installation steps:

  • Download the zip file and unzip into the root directory of WordPress, or unzip in local computer and upload using FTP.
  • Run the installation script, located in wp-stattraq/stattraq-install.php and create the table in database.
  • It’s working now! Just go to wp-stattraq/ to see your site statistics.

Simplified Chinese Language file for Google Sitemap Plugin v2-final for WordPress

Saturday, July 16th, 2005

Google Sitemap is a great plugin for WP written by Arne Brachhold.
The multi-language support in the plugin makes it really easy for me to compile this simplified Chinese language pack. Hope it is useful.

Download the zip file here


  • Unzip the file into wp-content/plugin folder.
  • Modify the language setting of WordPress into Simplified Chinese: ‘zh_CN’. Refer to WordPress Localization Guide for more instructions.
  • Go to admin page -> Options -> Sitemap, and you should see the config page in Simplified Chinese now.

Update: Just found out June6 made a Simplified Chinese translation just 1 day before. What a coincidence!

Open Disk Image in Linux/Mac OS X/Windows

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

The most common disk images are ISO files, with extension .iso
Under Linux/Mac OS X, the following command can be used to mount the ISO image to the directory /mnt/iso

mount -o loop -t iso9660 filename.iso /mnt/iso

Windows doesn’t natively support disk images, so you’ll need a third-party software. I strongly recommend the FREE DaemonTools. It is light-weight (<500KB) but very powerful. It supports cue/bin, iso, ccd (CloneCD), bwt(Blindwrite), mds (Media Descriptor File), cdi (Discjuggler), nrg (Nero), pdi (Instant CD/DVD), b5t (BlindWrite 5).
