Avoid spammy links in WordPress Posts with LinkPatrol

I’m a big believer of Content Is King. Whenever I started a new blog the very first thing or goal is to write great contents, focus on the headings, and display images that capture readers attention. Though these are BIG factors in search ranking, sometimes we make small little mistakes that could destroy everything that we have built so far. For example, linking to a website that later on become a 404 page or turn into a bad site i.e pornographic. If you barely know about this, it’s not too late to fix it. In this article, I will show you some great ways to analyze all existence external links inside your WordPress posts.

Make Author.php Include Custom Post Types

I was going through a strange issue where Author page was not showing the posts which belongs to Custom Post Types. After Googling, I found this article which shows how to include Custom Post Types for archives.php

I got inspiration from above mentioned article snippet and wrote the following snippet to modify Author.php page to include Custom Post Types

function wpbrigade_author_custom_post_types( $query ) {
  if( is_author() && empty( $query->query_vars['suppress_filters'] ) ) {
    $query->set( 'post_type', array(
     'post', 'my-custom-post-type-here'
	  return $query;
add_filter( 'pre_get_posts', 'wpbrigade_author_custom_post_types' );

How to check a specific plugin is activated or not ?

While working on the EDD (Easy Digital Downloads) add-on of Analytify, I was looking for a way to check if the Easy Digital Downloads plugin is already activated or not. So, a message should appear to our users that “They should Activate Easy Digital Downloads to make the Analytify for EDD work properly.

Almost every plugin has a class name, we can use the PHP functionclass_exists‘ to know if it exists or not. Following is the code which can be used to check a plugin is activate or not.

add_action( 'admin_notices', array(
public function analytify_edd_plugin_notices() {

if( !class_exists( 'Easy_Digital_Downloads' ) )
echo "<div class="error">" . __( "Easy Digital Downloads is not active. So, Analytify for EDD Add-on will not work properly.", 'wp-analytify' )."</div>";


If you know any other way to achieve the same task, do let us know.  Thanks.
