Live WordPress Help Via Twitter

I’ve spent some of my after-hours free time on Twitter answering questions about WordPress and helping folks with their WordPress issues.

Turned out to be a great success, lots of fun and a bunch of people who had their problems solved were glad I was on hand to help them out!

WP e-Commerce Plugin RC4 is now ready for download. Assuming that there are no major issues then we intend to launch 3.7.6 early next week. Probably Tuesday Morning 7th April NZT.

1. A few nice presentation changes in wp-admin (courtesy of Dan “the Godfather” Milward)
2. More head bashing fixes to Shipping and ’same as billing’
3. Awesome new filter for gateways added by Lee Willis
4. Had to remove the last of Chris Newtons cart class patch because it was breaking flat rate shipping, it now works perfectly.

WordPress 2.9

Posted by | Misc | No Comments

The new features of WordPress  2.9:

  1. Global undo/”trash” feature, which means that if you accidentally delete a post or comment you can bring it back from the grave (i.e., the Trash). This also eliminates those annoying “are you sure” messages we used to have on every delete.
  2. Built-in image editor allows you to crop, edit, rotate, flip, and scale your images to show them who’s boss. This is the first wave of our many planned media-handling improvements.
  3. Batch plugin update and compatibility checking, which means you can update 10 plugins at once, versus having to do multiple clicks for each one, and we’re using the new compatibility data from the plugins directory to give you a better idea of whether your plugins are compatible with new releases of WordPress. This should take the fear and hassle out of upgrading.
  4. Easier video embeds that allow you to just paste a URL on its own line and have it magically turn it into the proper embed code, with Oembed support for YouTube, Daily Motion, Blip.tv, Flickr, Hulu, Viddler, Qik, Revision3, Scribd, Google Video, Photobucket, PollDaddy, and WordPress.tv (and more in the next release).

2.9 provides the smoothest ride yet because of a number of improvements under the hood and more subtle improvements you’ll begin to appreciate once you’ve been around the block a few times. Here’s just a sampling:

  • We now have rel=canonical support for better SEO.
  • There is automatic database optimization support, which you can enable in your wp-config.php file by adding define('WP_ALLOW_REPAIR', true);.
  • Themes can register “post thumbnails” which allow them to attach an image to the post, especially useful for magazine-style themes.
  • A new commentmeta table that allows arbitrary key/value pairs to be attached to comments, just like posts, so you can now expand greatly what you can do in the comment framework.
  • Custom post types have been upgraded with better API support so you can juggle more types than just post, page, and attachment. (More of this planned for 3.0.)
  • You can set custom theme directories, so a plugin can register a theme to be bundled with it or you can have multiple shared theme directories on your server.
  • We’ve upgraded TinyMCE WYSIWYG editing and Simplepie.
  • Sidebars can now have descriptions so it’s more obvious what and where they do what they do.
  • Specify category templates not just by ID, like before, but by slug, which will make it easier for theme developers to do custom things with categories — like post types!
  • Registration and profiles are now extensible to allow you to collect things more easily, like a user’s Twitter account or any other fields you can imagine.
  • The XML-RPC API has been extended to allow changing the user registration option. We fixed some Atom API attachment issues.
  • Create custom galleries with the new include and exclude attributes that allow you to pull attachments from any post, not just the current one.
  • When you’re editing files in the theme and plugin editors it remembers your location and takes you back to that line after you save. (Thank goodness!!!)
  • The Press This bookmarklet has been improved and is faster than ever; give it a try for on-the-fly blogging from wherever you are on the internet.
  • Custom taxonomies are now included in the WXR export file and imported correctly.
  • Better hooks and filters for excerpts, smilies, HTTP requests, user profiles, author links, taxonomies, SSL support, tag clouds, query_posts and WP_Query

There are many codes to memorize just to modify a WordPress theme, so it helps to have a mini cheat sheet if you are looking to make minor changes or even developing your own theme. This is why we have decided to list a few codes that you can probably use for reference when editing themes. Bookmarking this page, or print this article and paste it on your desk.

Basic Template Files

Below is the list of basic files that every theme should have.

  • style.css

  • footer.php
  • single.php
  • page.php
  • comments.php
  • 404.php
  • archive.php
  • searchform.php
  • search.php

Codes in Header.php

These codes are mostly seen in header.php although some of these might be seen throughout your template files. Codes like Location of Site’s Theme Files are used to call for image URLs all over the template, same goes with the exact url of the site code. But most of these codes will be found in your header.php file.
