Stealing, Threat, Abuse – against a blogger

Here is a news from the Malayalam blogging community, and it is no more an issue of Malayalam Bloggers alone. I am not writing a long post about the issue because you have a lot to read at the pages linked to.

See the first email from the blogger :

You have copied from malayalam blogs and
placed it on your website.



These links show the copied stories and poems from Malayalam blogs. You have no right to do so. You have ads all over your website. You cannot put ads on copied content. This issue will be reported to your hosting service and to google.

And the reply ? here is a sample.

May be I might dont know how to reply properly, however it’s none of your business since you are another malayali thinks world is under your neath.. Just get rid of all the ego’s and come down to earth.. may be your parents didnt teach you to respect other and get respect.. I am too nice based on your character.. You are Nothing, just another FOB.. So Do NOT think you are on top of me or us.. Rule your husband or familly.. DO NOT TRY TO RULE THE WORLD…

WordPress Blogs in Malayalam

WordPress is my favorite blogging platform and it will remain so, always. However, there is some kind of “soft corner” being formed towards Blogger.

Reason ? …. I found lot of Malayalam blogs on Blogger. Blogger makes it easy to write and publish in Malayalam and few other Indic languages. There is a good community being formed around these Malayalam blogs on Blogger. I did try this Malayalam typing, and found really really easy.

The Malayali Blogging community, is trying hard to Malayalam Blogs popular. I am trying to find information on how to blog in Malayalam using wordpress. I would like to document it, at one place. If you have some information about WordPressing in Indic languages, or some plugins that you know about, please drop me a comment here

So far, I have managed to post using copy n paste method. I found one plugin too, which is not working here ( may be because its not compatible with the latest wordpress version. ) I will keep you guys updated !!

How to write Malayalam for WordPress

As I said earlier, we do not have something similar to what blogger.com has. For now, you can either use blogger.com, to create the blog content and then paste it to your WordPress blog editor.

If you do not want to use Blogger to type in Malayalam, you can use Google Transliteration to write in Malayalam and then paste it to WordPress.
