Google Docs Shortcode v0.4
Inline Google Spreadsheet Viewer v0.12.4
With Lane’s transition to GSuite, it seems like a good idea to give the ability to embed GSuite documents in blogs. I found two that look to be well supported and stable.
Google Docs Shortcode is by CUNY, the City University of New York. They do quite a lot of open source WordPress work and they generally keep their plugins updated and secure. This plugin lets you embed most Google Docs (Docs, Sheets, Slides…) so they simply display in your post or page. If you remember <iframe>’s, it’s a lot like that. You’re basically looking at a GSuite doc through a window in your page or post.
Inline Google Spreadsheet Viewer is more focused on Sheets and turns your GSuite Sheet into a datatable. Datatables automatically add sorting by click, header rows, pagination and some other niceties to a spreadsheet making it much more usable in a website.
As always, if you have any questions, let me know.
There is a new DDOS attack happening on WordPress websites (not ours, but worldwide), so we had a security update this morning. All is well. Just keeping us that way.

WordPress v4.8 “Evans”
Easy Google Fonts v1.4.3
TinyMCE Advanced v4.6.3
WordPress v4.8 was a pretty good upgrade. For those who would like to read all about it, you can see the official release here.
A couple of the biggest things to know:
One other thing that is important to know is that WMV and WMA files no longer work natively. As has been for quite some time, the best way to get a video on your blog is to embed it from a service set up to stream videos like Youtube or Vimeo.
As of 3:00pm today, the blog network uses CAS (Central Authentication Service) to manage user accounts.
What does this mean for me?
When you get to the new login screen, you will see a new button above the login form that says “Log in using CAS”. If you have a lanecc.edu email address, you will need to use that button to log into the blog network.
Once you click the magic button you will be routed to the standard CAS login screen. After logging in you will be sent back to the blog network address you were originally trying to view.
If you have any problems logging in, please let me know.
Pretty minor updates this week.
