Put Javascript in your WordPress Posts with Script Enabler

After a long battle trying to get Javascript to work in WordPress posts I finally stumbled upon the Script Enabler Plugin by Otto. In hopes of shortening the search for others and since Otto doesn’t seem to have a home page for Script Enabler (or at least not one I can find) here’s everything you need to know about it.


  • No settings
  • No configuration
  • Use standard script tag syntax
  • It works


  1. Download it (click here)
  2. Unzip it (Hey, I was talking about the file)
  3. Move it to your plugins directory
  4. Enable it

Thanks to Otto for developing the plugin!

EditPlus for SQL Editing and More

EditPlus in actionWhile there are many text editors out there offering a broad set of features my favorite right now is EditPlus.

EditPlus is a Windows shareware application designed for text, HTML, Java, PHP, etc. It’s very thin requiring little (nearly no) load time and has many great features such as:

  • Syntax hilighting for many languages
  • EditPlus on Windows right-click
  • FTP and SFTP integration
  • Templates
  • Line Numbering
  • Column Selection
  • Optional Spell Checker

The list of features is long and every revision brings more. Check out the Features page for more.

I’ve been using the Oracle 9iR2 syntax file from the user files section of EditPlus.com and it seems to pick up all the SQL and PL/SQL syntax I use, although many other syntax files exist and you could always make your own.

As mentioned above, EditPlus is shareware. A single user license is only $30, and with discounts for buying in bulk there is no reason not to pay, but for now, download it, try it, and see why you can’t live without it.

Thanks to Zach for showing this to me a couple years ago.
