Needed this code this morning and figured I’d share it with you fine people.
Here’s a link for an explanation on creating your WordPress Shortcodes:
Had this issue today where I created a WordPress shortcode and put it in a text widget but when I saw it live it didn’t convert the shortcode.
Below is an article that gives you the code you need to put in your functions.php file to allow you to display them properly in the widgets.
Here’s a snippet of code to add to your functions.php page in order to view your featured image in your posts admin section:
Worked like a charm!
Every wonder how to change the color of text when you select it?
Ever needed to get ONLY the featured image url? Below is an easy WordPress Support forum article I’ve referred to to get it. Easy as pie.
A pesky evil WordPress decided to not supply automatically but here’s a link to a good hack for it:
I particularly like this article because it also provides an extension function that applies first and last classes to nested menus as well!
So I’ve decided to change directions with this blog as I’m now much busier than when I began and do not have much time to write full articles.
I’ll write a random article here or there but what I’ve decided is a much better method to help my web design & development madness.
I CONTINUALLY search the web for tips and articles myself whenever I run into a crunch and tend to always go back to the same damn stuff whenever I’m in a jam. So what I will do is simply have titles for what you will be looking for with a quick link along with an accompanying quick description blog post with the same link in there as well.
I.e. this will turn into a list of helpful web developer / website design links for the masses and also save me some sanity so I don’t have to keep typing in the same stuff into google to find what I need. Much more productive for you and I.
Stop in, find what you’re looking for, leave with a smile.
