Central Banks, Stop Words: Restore old titles

Must: translate /” into “-” in the URL

Title: 02Oct/Cross-border financial linkages: challenges for monetary policy and financial stability

is translated into

Cross-border financial linkages: Challenges for Monetary Policy and Financial Stability

hence the “/” is translated into empty

Central Banks: NewYOrk Fed and FRED

Broken Feeds

Had to set all posts of NY Fed to private


G0) Posts ending in “-” gives 404


Down with Legal Tender Part 1



G1) Remove stop Words removes author again from the postname

The author must remain in the postname


The family names are not in the stop words list



G3) Zerohedge posts have all post-ID


After restore old URL
Even if their URL is very long, so the chance of duplicated URL is very low.



Not Fixed here

 After remove stop words:
Most post ID got removed. On Bawerk they remained.



G4) Stop Words of new list are not removed


The word “putting” is on gerund list but is still in the URL.


G5) New list: dual keywords

This new list will be part of an extension of the plugin to be implemented later. (might be tricky)
Still I would like to store these words for future use.

English has many dual keywords. One single word might a stop word, but not the combination of keywords.

Free-banking, drinking-age,


G6) Increase font size

Like here in Mises

Most of our sources have bigger fonts.


G7) Our Content box is far smaller than our sources

The following is a copy from Mises and economicblogs without lowering sizes

Content Box Small



Not needed for Google Go-Live


N0) After Post Import, the Remove Stop Words must run

currently posts are imported with stop words. We should not make Google upset and change URLs later.



N1) Black boxes despite Post ID in the URL

After restore old URL:



FIXED, successfully tested but new black boxes appeared.
Reason cannot be duplicated posts, because it contains the post id.


New black boxes:





N4) New Stop words list

Name: “Gerund forms irregular verbs”




N5) Coordination problem

Rad said Done but still does not work



[10:38:18 AM] T Niko: I can view it, too

Category Bankiervereinigung:

N3) dot is a seperator for words in URL


URL: https://austrian.economicblogs.org/adam-smith/2015/worstall-corbynomics-peoples-qe/


title:Taking Corbynomics seriously…and stop giggling at the back there

Bug: The plugin did not seperate into “seriously” and “and”

Finally both words are stop words and need to be removed.

Not done

Example here

Not done

 N4a) Stockman: Only partial Posts

N5) Missing Categories

Coordination problem: category missing in Austrian menu

Rad: Done

N6) Subcategories are not assigned

Posts must be assigned to both category and subcategory

Currently this works only for category. This is wrong

Subcategories Not Assigned

Single-Author: All 91 posts must be assigned to Wolf Richter - Click to enlarge


There is probably a syndication rule missing, because it work for Megan Green on European.

Works for Economistmeg

Please add for all single-author blogs also a subcategory


This may be fixed after Google-Go Live, Important but not urgent

Not done

N7) User pictures: Faces, No Sun Glasses, Beautiful like Passport Photos

No Body like here  (take the face on the page)

A8. Channels for Authors

We also add information – avatar, social networks on the authors which are automatically added (when it is possible)

: How do u automatically create the channels?



A9) Official Author: “BlogAdmin”   and Fondtrends


The author is inside the text, while BlogAdmin is the “official author”.

Blog Admin instead author

Same happens for Fondstrends on Swissmacro

Example: Author Jog somewhere on the bottom

 Not done

10. Official Author: Tyler Durden 

Low prio

We have a bigger problem with Zerohedge /Tyler Durdon:

He writes author = Tyler Durden, but then “submitted by”.




F7) We added the categories in the menu (because it is too empty)


We will replace this with special design pictures later.


Other bugs and Features


O2) Fintool

a website with videos

I created it 3 or 4 years ago,

No this was Favicon

Not done

Low prio, yet, OPEN



O5) snbchf/Swissmacro and redirect

Low prio, OPEN


O6) Yoast: Redirect with regex on .accessht

Low prio, need page, OPEN


O7) Centralbanks.ch user not created, (low hanging fruit)


uses snbchf zone in Gandi,

same as swissnationalbank.org, which is correct.

this should link to snbchf.com
Do we do a redirect with CNAME?

 Niki: Done

O10) Icons on Follow Author

Create new “CFA Soc”  for authors instead

Exception: Leave CFA Society Switzerland icon for George Dorgan

O11) Follow Author: Alignment

Important, but not urgent

authors are always right alinted , They should also appear on left side.

Example: akismet
So I would like that authors are left and right, for Akismet we will need only 4 rows instead 7.
Hence we need a param for left/right

 Not done
