    Flat Design is growing trend in the WordPress design industry right now and people are going gaga for it.

  • How To Use WordPress As A Learning Management System

    WordPress has many uses that most of us are exceedingly familiar with. It can be a blog, business website, art portfolio, e-commerce store and so much more. Over the last few years another use case has become more and more popular: WordPress as a Learning Management System (LMS). While I do not know for sure, I imagine that using WordPress as an LMS grew from many bloggers’ desire to create and sell e-courses to their readers. However, as the niche has evolved, its uses (and advantages) have been noticed by more than just bloggers. Organizations as varied as fast food chains, call…

    4 Mar 2014 | 11:15 am
    With the new release of WordPress will come the ability to declare support for HTML5 markup in galleries. Once a theme declared support, the definition list elements will be replaced by <figure> and <figcaption> for better semantics. If you decide to not only adopt this new feature but also maintain backwards compatibility, then there are two ways to achieve that: Style not only the new HTML5 elements, but also add CSS selectors for the traditional definition list elements. This is the route we chose for _s to keep it as simple as possible. Filter the shortcode attributes and…

    15 Apr 2014 | 2:47 am
    The second release candidate for WordPress 3.9 is now available for testing. If you haven’t tested 3.9 yet, you’re running out of time! We made about five dozen changes since the first release candidate, and those changes are all helpfully summarized in our weekly post on the development blog. Probably the biggest fixes are to live widget previews and the new theme browser, along with some extra TinyMCE compatibility and some RTL fixes. Plugin authors: Could you test your plugins against 3.9, and if they’re compatible, make sure they are marked as tested up to 3.9? It…

If you tried to use it, your draft would disappear and it wouldn’t save. While we doubt anyone was writing a novella using this tool, any loss of content is unacceptable to us.

    In this weeks edition of WordPress Weekly, we discussed several topics with WordPress lead developer Andrew Nacin. Ever since the release of WordPress 3.7, many have questioned why auto updates are turned on by default for minor and security updates. Nacin described the philosophy behind the auto update system and why the team will be sticking with its current implementation. We also learned the details behind the release of a major security update to Jetpack. Last but not least, Nacin describes what it was like to lead the release of 3.9 and what he’ll be focusing on now that he…

    Many of the TinyMCE settings have changed in version 4.0. There is a new default theme: Modern, and all the UI settings for the former Advanced theme (theme_advanced...) are deprecated. One often used setting was theme_advanced_blockformats It was renamed to block_formats and keeps the same formatting. To specify a different set of elements for the ‘blockformats’ drop-down (second toolbar row in the WordPress Visual editor), you can set a string of name=value pairs separated by a semicolon in the initialization object: block_formats: "Paragraph=p;Heading 1=h1;Heading 2=h2;Heading…

Quotable is a new WordPress plugin that capitalizes on this, allowing readers to highlight any text within your content to quote the article on Twitter. The plugin, developed by Josiah Sprague, was partially inspired by the toolbar on Medium.com that enables visitors to tweet or comment on the text they select.

  • WPTavern: WordPress 3.9 Has Built-in Support for Pasting from Microsoft Word

    18 Apr 2014 | 10:53 am
    photo credit: This Year’s Love – cc A common support question that’s been popping up on the web after WordPress users update to 3.9: What happened to the “Paste from Word” button in the visual editor? If you find that the button is missing, don’t worry – it’s not a bug. Prior to this update, the button was located in the kitchen sink of the visual editor: WordPress 3.9, however, removes the “paste from word” button entirely. It includes TinyMCE 4.0 and has better built-in support for pasting in blocks of text for Microsoft Word. The…

    Posted in DevelopmentIt’s my firm belief that between CSS and jQuery, there’s nothing on a page that I can’t manipulate.  CSS is amazing in that (as long as the proper hooks are in place) you can use it to manipulate elements with granular precision.  What most people don’t realize, however, is that you can use so much more than IDs or classes to select the various page elements.  Learning how to do this effectively means that you open your designs up to a lot more flexibility (and some really cool effects too)! Here are some of the more advanced ways to select…

    The contact page is one of the most important pages on a website. It is how advertisers get in touch with you and how customers ask questions about your product or service. Displaying contact email addresses to visitors is rare today due to the spambots that crawl the web for email addresses. Most website owners display contact forms instead. Contact forms allow you to dictate what information is sent to you. For example, in your contact form you could ask for a person’s URL, the department they want to contact, and the reason they are contacting you or your company. This ensures that…

    Earlier this month, Rae published a great post on how to fully customize and brand your site’s login page. If you only have 15 minutes though, there is an alternative and that’s to add front-end login, registration and password recovery directly into your site’s pages and sidebars. Use widgets and shortcodes to brand your sign-in, register and forgotten password functions. The problem with the builtin sign-in, register and password recovery forms are that they carry the WordPress branding and don’t look anything like your site. Whilst you can do some amazing things…

Since The Matrix Has You Easter egg surprised (and freaked out…) users in WordPress 2.6, there hasn’t been a single hidden feature in more than four years. That’s 13 versions of WordPress. Easter eggs are fun to discover and provide a cheeky outlet for developers who have put a lot of time and work into a program and want to leave something of themselves behind. Easter eggs are silly and don’t often make sense, but mostly it’s fun finding one yourself and sharing it before your friends have stumbled…

    Joe Foley

    Some of us are more organized than others. Some have our future posts already written and scheduled out a month in advance. While I can’t claim to be one of those, here at WPMU DEV, we do use the scheduled post option in WordPress quite a lot. In fact, it’s rare that any post here will be written and then published straight away. I’d say that about 98-99% of the posts you see here have been scheduled to publish. And so we surely appreciate that function. But that function, like most, can be improved upon. And so below we’ve found 10 plugins to help do just that – all doing different…

  • Embed Youtube Into Your WordPress Theme

    Toby Cryns
    1 Apr 2014 | 11:14 am
    The way WordPress handles Youtube embeds is awesome - just copy-and-paste the link into the editor. Unfortunately, when echoing custom fields in a theme, it isn't that easy. Thanks to Convoy for this fix: _e( wp_oembed_get( get_field( 'youtube_link' ) ) ) NOTE: My example, uses Advanced Custom Fields' "get_field" function. You could replace get_field( 'youtube_link' ) with get_post_meta(). The post Embed Youtube Into Your WordPress Theme appeared first on The Mighty Mo! Design Co. LLC.

    There’s a new feature that slipped into the admin side of WordPress with the recently-released 3.8 – Dashicons!  Very similar to Font Awesome, Dashicons give plugin developers a nice set of pre-made icons to use.  The cool thing is that Dashicons come pre-loaded, and using them in your WordPress custom post types is as simple as adding a parameter to your register_post_type() function, like so: // Register a new custom post type named "Portfolio" register_post_type('portfolio' array( 'public' => true 'menu_icon'=> 'dashicons-portfolio' 'label' =>…

    27 Dec 2013 | 9:17 am
    I recently needed to search posts by date range on a WordPress site. As any experienced WordPress pro will tell you, search is one of WordPress’ shortcomings, and there are not many plugin options out there for fancy searches. The only plugin I found that looked like it could do the job is FacetWP.  While not perfect, I would recommend it for anyone who wants to filter results on a search page by category, by taxonomy, by tag, by author, etc. PROS: It sorts results on the fly using AJAX – very slick. Interface is all WP back end, so no need to edit code, unless you want to edit…

  • Stop stripping line breaks in the WordPress Editor

    Rebecca Markowitz
    7 Apr 2014 | 2:06 am
    In Elegant Themes, like many other themes, the line break <br /> br tags were not being preserved when used within shortcodes. For example, we have a page with tabs using shortcode [tab][/tab] and we wanted to use Shift+Enter to enter line breaks. Although  the content looked fine in the Editor, the line breaks were getting stripped and didn’t display properly in the front-end. Elegant Themes suggested we tell our client to add <br class=”clear” /> which is not exactly… elegant for our clients. You could also add a line break shortcode so that the…

At the time of the site launch, we only pointed the domain’s A records to our server. Many months later, our client decided to use WordPress Multisite.

Worst of all, I couldn’t even see this archive problem with the site because I was logged in.

    Non-alcoholic in the front and the fun in the back. I observed my father become an incredible leader as he worked his way up from the rank and file to become an executive in a company that does more than $70B a year in revenue. And our family moved as his career grew and went with him even when it meant moving a family of 7 internationally to Japan. I saw him in a variety of roles and although he worked hard and oftentimes late I do not remember him missing much of the weekly family events – he may have missed a few of my soccer games here and there but I can’t actually remember a…

We are definitely in a state of flux and many things have changed over the course of the first-half of this year and many times I’ve just thought to myself how broken things are and how desperately I’d love them to be fixed.
