Almost parts of Wordpress template codes is modifiable or removable by add or remove filter methods in functions.php file. Let’s think about it before hacking to WordPress core sources or create your own WordPress child themes.
You’ve started your first blog on WordPress.com because the service was free, you weren’t required to have any technical skills and there were plenty of widgets, themes and plug-ins to help you quickly customize the blog. However, a time comes when you might want to move to your own domain name which is a continuance of your WordPress.com blog. Moving your WordPress.com blog to a self-hosted WordPress.org is actually more simple than you might believe! Sure there’s a few steps but all good things require a bit of work, right? I hope you found this helpful. What are you waiting for now? Are you ready to make the switch?
Automattic just released a collection of plugins as one “super-plugin” called Jetpack. As they explained it, the goal was to bring eight of the most requested features available on WordPress.com to the millions of self-hosted WordPress sites in one easy-to-install curated package. If you use JetPack Stats on your site (formerly released as a stand alone plugin called WordPress.com stats), you may be familiar with the smiley face image that it adds to the bottom of every page on your site.
There are, of course, too many plugins to list here, so in this article we’re just going to point out the essentials… what I consider to be the bare minimum “can’t live without” list of plugins that should be installed with just about any new Wordpress installation. This is obviously just the beginning, as these are only a fraction of the seemingly limitless list of things you can do to customize and enhance your WordPress driven your new website.
A drop down menu is often your best means of keeping the navigation simple and uncluttered, that can offer your theme and users 2 new things. One, add a nice new type of effect to enhance your theme. Two, allow the users to find things more easily. There are a few plugins that you can use to achieve this, but in this post, I’ll show you how to make your own Wordpress Drop-Down menu with CSS and jQuery and WordPress’s standard source code
Just imagine, then, the all-consuming sorrow of losing weeks, months or even years of blog posts or other site content. Your hosting company may provide a responsible backup service (or you may have a well-considered system in place if your site is self-hosted) but some extra insurance can be crucial if the unexpected happens (as it did for one of our client sites today).
Your backup must be up-to-date and it’s can store on your computer, anothers hosting server, anothers online storage service ..
Many blogs highlight the author’s comment in the comments section. I’m talking about how to highlight comments posted by the author of the article. You can use many plugins to get this effect (For eg., the Highlight Author Comments Plugin) – but you don’t have to. Most snippets will target and try to find author’s email or user id, but that actually slows your site down. Why not using CSS selector and find author’s comment and change the background color so it is easily pointed out. Pretty smart. After that, it was a simple matter of times to see the result.
With Social Bookmark websites, users can save and categorize a personal collection of bookmarks and share them with others. Your visitors can now bookmark and submit your websites to all their favorite social bookmark services with the ease of a single click.
So how can we encourage more people to share our links? One of the easiest options is to include a set of links at the bottom of your posts which readers can click to automatically vote for your article. In this post, I’ve written the WordPress codes for 45+ of the most popular social bookmarking and networking sites out there.
