OK people. my apology to any of you who actually waited for me to post this. there was a lot going on for me latley. trip to my country, holidays, work got crazy in the holidays, new year, camping trip for my birthday and the best part is my new iMac :). so now i can smothly write This second part of this tutorial. In the first part i showed you how to create “my-posts” page and how to delete a post. In this tutorial i will show you how to edit post from front end. There is a little more going on in this part so i will try to explain it the best way i can. note that this form works for custom taxonomies when it comes to categories and tags. so i am not sure how it will work with regular categories and tag but if there are problems we can all try to figure it out. and same as in the first part of the tutorial i will break it to sections.
I recently came across a problem where none of my emails were getting through to anyone, even me. Registration, comments, forms, etc. They were all hosed up. I’ve got a couple of tricks for you here that fixed things for me. This helped normal WordPress emails, Contact Form 7, Gravity Forms, etc. First I’ll show you how to send your email from YOU, not email@example.com, then I’ll tell you what else I did that may be host specific.
Here’s a quick request. Hopefully by now most of us know how to use WordPress custom menu creator. It works great, and alloows for any type of menu to be created. But let’s say you are using twentyeleven, and you are totally happy with it. And, you don’t feel like making a custom menu… you want to stick with the default fallback, wp_list_pages. The only thing that bugs you is that pesky home link…. here’s the answer!
After migrating to Bluehost, or actually, while migrating, I came across a situation where I needed to use SSH to accomplish a task. In my case, it was importing a large mySQL database. There may come a time where you need to use SSH to complete a task. There are many great tutorials out there, but they all seem to assume a basic knowledge of using the command line. I’m not going to give you in depth knowledge here, just the very basics, how to get started and navigate around.
I’m going to borrow a page from Otto, and discuss a functionality plugin again. I hope you’ll read this article all the way through. I fully intend to help you make your WordPress life so much easier. We’re going to make a site-specific plugin, and I’ll even give you the bare bones for free! I avoided making my plugin for years, and realize how painful that made everything. These plugins are amazingly easy, and essential really.
It’s a question I see around the forums every so often. Why does my theme have twentyten, twentyeleven, theme name in all of the php commands? It’s a question I had when I was starting out. I would copy and paste things from other themes, and at first I had a variety of theme names in mine, and it didn’t hurt anything. Then I started changing it to match my theme name, and that didn’t hurt anything either. But it didn’t help, because I didn’t understand what it was. Well, here’s a quick explanation.
Here’s a quick little tidbit for you. I was recently working on a few small things to make my site load a bit faster, and I was digging through all my scripts and styles that load. I noticed that the scripts and styles for the bbPress 2.x plugin and the bbPress Post Toolbar plugin loaded on every page. Here’s a quick fix to load them only on an actual bbPress page.
This is a continuous tutorial to the “post from your front end” tutorial by voodoo. I will break the tutorial to two parts to make it easier. First part will be creating “my-posts.php” template file. This file displays a list of posts (approved and pending) of a user when he is logged in when each post will have “Edit” and “Delete” buttons. Clicking on “delete” button of a post will instantly delete it. Clicking on “Edit” will send the user to “edit-post.php” file that we will create in the second part of this tutorial.
NOTE: This tut is not longer applicable (as of WP 3.3). I will try to get an updated tutorial on here very soon.
Just for fun, I decided I might like to completely overhaul my WordPress login screen. Sure it’s simple to swap out the logo, or maybe change the background colour. Maybe even use a plugin to change some stuff up. But I wanted to overhaul it all, strip it down and start over. Let’s see what I stumbled through today!
A while back we had a nice little post one here about how to add a login/logout link to your nav menu. I recommend reading that through first if you haven’t before. It’ll get you up to speed and ready for this next tidbit of information. Today we will expand on that idea, with a login/logout link added to only one menu, with a referrer redirect! I’ll explain it all next.
