wordpress Seth Godin WordPress Plugin Exorcism

Exorcist Required to Exorcize Seth Godin from This Blog

seth godin Seth Godin WordPress Plugin ExorcismI have been spending chunks of time this week trying to remove a WordPress Plugin’s “feature” from the Search Engine Optimizician.

“What Would Seth Godin Do” is a great plugin for WordPress. WWSGD has been serving me well for years.

As time has rolled on I have moved past this plugin. The problem is that WWSGD won’t move past me. You can probably still see it at the top of this page/post.
(Post from Search Engine Optimizician.)
 
I have done everything I can think of:

  • deactivated the plugin through the WP interface
  • deleted the plugin through the WP interface
  • installed the plugin and changed the settings through the WP interface
  • deactivated the plugin again through the WP interface
  • deleted the plugin again through the WP interface
  • ftp’d to the server and deleted from the plugins folder
  • ftp’d to the server and search for and removed “what_would_seth_godin_do.php
  • I have even repeatedly emptied the cash
  • I even deleted and reinstalled the cash plugin

Yet the WWSGD greeting still remains.

First time visiting Search Engine Optimizician? Make sure you subscribe to the RSS feed before you leave!

 
 
richardkmiller Seth Godin WordPress Plugin ExorcismI have been emailing back and forth with Richard K Miller the author of this stubborn little plugin.

Richard has been very cooperative and helpful but yet Seth remains. I have no ill feelings for either WWSGD or Richard.

I would even recommend this plugin for WordPress beginners.

By default, new visitors to your blog will see a small box above each post containing the words “If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!” After 5 visits the message disappears. You can customize this message, its lifespan, and its location. The message can be excluded from Pages if desired.

I put out this post for some fresh ideas on how I might possibly be able to exorcize this sticky widget from the Search Engine Optimizician.

Any ideas?
I’m open to anything! Any seance experts out there?

Late,

    It looks as though it might only be showing up on the blog home page now. Anyone else see it on any of the other pages?

    No I spoke too soon. It sometimes still appears on the individual post pages beneath it’s replacement.
