Advanced Power Tips for WordPress Template

Developers

With its latest releases, WordPress has become one of the

powerful, robust, light weight content management systems,

by extending its potential beyond blogging and offers all the

functionalities required to develop a pleasant website.

In this article we will explore some advance techniques and

plug-ins that extended their limitations and customizing not

only the front end, but the content management (or back end)

experience. Though there are other systems which can do an

average job incorporating 99% of what the potential CMS

Multiple Column Content Techniques

Many creative websites don’t know the simple idea of “one

unique block” per page.A creative online portfolio layout must

feature a screenshot and project description in a left column,

and a list of technologies used in a right column.

SHORT, SIMPLE, AND HTML FREE? NO WORRIES

maybe should not be formatted by the editor for design

reasons – then a simple custom field will do the trick.

Let’s also assume that we want to format this sidebar content

on the front end with some of the basic automatic niceties we

get when we output post content, like curly quotation marks.

$sidebar_content = get_post_meta($post->ID,

"sidebar_content", true);

if ($sidebar_content) {

echo '<div id="sidebar_content">';

echoapply_filters("the_content", $sidebar_content);

echo '</div>';

}

represent one block of HTML content, while content below the

divider will represent a second block

global$more;

$more=0;

echo'<div id="column_one">';

the_content('');

echo'</div>':

$more=1;

echo'<div id="column_two">';

the_content('',true);

ASSOCIATING PAGES WITH POST CONTENT: RELOADED

A REVIEW OF THE BASICS & THE TWO FUNDAMENTAL

APPROACHES

AUTOMATICALLY DETERMINING THE PAGE /

CATEGORY ASSOCIATION

query_posts('cat='.$cat->term_id);

HANDLING ENTRY INTO THE “REAL” CATEGORY

ARCHIVE

$destination=get_bloginfo('url');

$destination.=str_replace('/'.get_option('category_base').'/','/',

$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);

wp_redirect($destination,301);

HIDING STANDALONE CATEGORIES FROM THE

CATEGORY LIST & PRIMARY SITE FEED

add_filter('pre_get_posts','exclude_press');

functionexclude_press($query){

if($query->is_feed&&!$query->is_category)$query->set('cat','-

5');
