Category LiveBookmarks Plugin

Category LiveBookmarks Icon

CLB+ Enthusiastic Firefox users enjoy the luxury of Live Bookmarks, a feature of Firefox that automatically discovers and updates RSS feeds. Web pages with available feeds are indicated by the orange feed icon located in the browser’s address bar. Clicking the feed icon presents a list of all available feeds for that particular webpage.

Often, this is the result of poorly written PHP, which can be manipulated to write beautifully aligned code that looks as good as it works. Continue reading »

The Monzilla website (and all subsequent sites) will also employ WP 2.0, or whichever version is the most current at the time of design. Continue reading »
