Whether you are an experienced WordPress Developer or a weekend Blogger useful code snippets are sure to make your life easier.

Displaying WordPress Widget Directly from Template File

Did you know that aside from adding the standard WordPress widgets from within the WordPress Dashboard, that there is a built in function available called the_widget() that allow you to place a widget anywhere within your theme template files.

 

So for example you want to display a widget in the header but there’s no widget area in the header. What would you do?

 

the_widget function comes to the rescue!

 

You can use the code below to load any widget on any template file.

the_widget( $widget, $instance, $args );
  • $widget = widget’s PHP class name
  • $instance = widget’s instance settings
  • $args = widget’s sidebar args, for example before_widget, before_title and so on

To know all of the above parameter, you will need to open the widget file.

 

So, let say you want to display the Search widget in the header. Open up header.php file then put this code in the place where you want the widget to appear:

the_widget( 'WP_Widget_Search' );

MaxCDN New Performance Testing Tools http://www.wpinsite.com/articles/maxcdn-new-performance-testing-tools http://www.wpinsite.com/articles/maxcdn-new-performance-testing-tools#comments Thu, 15 May 2014 01:19:12 +0000 http://www.wpinsite.com/?p=7491 As many of you may be aware I have been a huge fan of MaxCDN’s Content Delivery Network services now for quite some time and the performance that this service provides. Since joining MaxCDN a few years ago there have been some instrumental changes to their services and available tools.

MaxCDN is a forward moving company always striving to better itself and provide better tools and services for it’s clients. Recently MaxCDN have released a set of performance tools that allows you to test various aspects of your websites performance and loading speed. These tools greatly help you to make decisions on the services and locations required for you to run a fast successful website.

MaxCDN Ping Test Performance

The first performance test that has been developed is the ping test. This allows you to test the performance or loading speed of your website from different locations around the world.

Currently you can perform the ping test of your website for the following destinations:


  • Atlanta
  • Chicago
  • Dallas
  • New York
  • San Francisco



  • San Jose
  • Seattle
  • Montreal
  • Amsterdam
  • Frankfurt



  • London
  • Manchester
  • Paris


MaxCDN Performance Ping Test

MaxCDN Performance Ping Test

The ping test allows you to test the loading of your site against two different URL’s. Great for seeing the speed loading results for a CDN (Content Delivery Network) enabled website.

Once you have performed the ping test you can then research the results as per the best performance result and then make a wise choice as to what location to host your Content Delivery Network enabled site in.

MaxCDN HTTP Performance Test

The second test the developers at MaxCDN have allowed us to perform is the HTTP Test. This test allows you to compare the first and last byte speed of two websites in 5 seconds. Once again giving you quality reassurance that you made the perfect wise decision in investing in MaCDN’s CDN.

HTTP Test - Compare the first and last byte speed of two websites in 5 seconds

HTTP Test – Compare the first and last byte speed of two websites in 5 seconds

To perform any of these test is very simple. You simply add the two different website URL’s that you wish to test against and click the Start button. Again the results of this test will help you decide which physical location your website performs best at and how using MaxCDN can help boost the loading speed of your website. Remember “A fast loading website = Happy visitors”.

SSL Test

The final test currently available is the SSL Test. This test is invaluable to anyone who wishes to run a secure site and gives you a full performance review of your SSL certificate.

The SSL test allows you to test your SSL Certificate from any of the number of available CDN locations. This test gives you piece of mind that your SSL Certificate that you have purchased is indeed protecting your visitors and their sensitive information.

Ensure that your SSL Certificate is protecting your visitors

In concluding I believe that all WordPress site users should invest in a solid structured Content Delivery Network Service (CDN) such as that provided by MaxCDN. With super low pricing and various usage plans to take advantage of you really have no reason not to sign up to MaxCDN today.

Divi – Elegant Themes Smartest, Most Flexible Theme http://www.wpinsite.com/premium-wordpress-themes/divi-elegant-themes-smartest-flexible-theme http://www.wpinsite.com/premium-wordpress-themes/divi-elegant-themes-smartest-flexible-theme#comments Wed, 26 Feb 2014 10:17:25 +0000 http://www.wpinsite.com/?p=7463 Divi is the latest themes to come to us from the talented developers at Elegant Themes. Divi is possibly the smartest and most flexible theme in the Elegant Themes collection. Divi is the most powerful theme the Elegant Themes developers have ever built, and quite possibly the only theme you will ever need.

Highly Useful WordPress Code Snippets http://www.wpinsite.com/code-snippets/useful-wordpress-code-snippets http://www.wpinsite.com/code-snippets/useful-wordpress-code-snippets#comments Fri, 31 Jan 2014 00:51:48 +0000 http://www.wpinsite.com/?p=7452 Code snippets are a great way to add extra functionality to your WordPress site without the need to download and install a plugin. In this post we will outline some highly useful code snippets.

Keep all your code snippets organized

The first tip in regards to code snippets is to keep them organized and in a central location that is easy for you to manage.

Some developers may tend to stay away from code snippets as they can be quite messy and mundane to manage. Typically you paste the code snippet with the function that you want to add in your theme’s ‘functions.php’ file. If this is the case, you should be happy to know that there is a plugin available to help you manage all of your WordPress code snippets.

Code Snippets Plugin

Code Snippets Plugin

Code Snippets Plugin

The best plugin to manage these code snippets is called Code Snippets and can be downloaded from the WordPress plugin repository. Code Snippets is an easy, clean and simple way to add code snippets to your site. No need to edit to your theme’s functions.php file again!

Add a Favicon

Although there are plugins available, adding a favicon to your WordPress site really doesn’t require a plugin. Instead, just use this extremely simple code snippet:

add_action( 'wp_head', 'my_favicon');
function my_favicon(){
	echo "<link href="" . get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . "http://cdn.wpinsite.com/favicon.ico?705d74" rel="shortcut icon" />" . "\n";
}

Place WordPress in Maintenance Mode

There may be times when you are working on your site doing updates and you wish to place your site into maintenance mode. This can be done with this code snippet:

function maintenace_mode() {
    if ( !current_user_can( 'edit_themes' ) || !is_user_logged_in() ) {
        die('YOUR MESSAGE');
    }
}
add_action('get_header', 'maintenace_mode');

Replace ‘YOUR MESSAGE’ with the message you want to display to your visitors. This will display a blank page with your desired message.

Limit The Excerpt’s Word Count

WordPress has a great function when writing posts, called the ‘More’ tag. This will limit the amount of words that we want to display on our post listing page. Although this is a great function how many of us end up adding too many characters or words before the ‘More’ tag and this can really throw out you nice page designs. There is a code snippet that we can use and this will automatically limit the amount of words that will be displayed when displaying our excepts:

add_filter('excerpt_length', 'my_excerpt_length');
function my_excerpt_length( $length ){
	return 10;
}

This code snippet will limit the words to 10 words displayed within our WordPress excerpt. Simply change the number of words that you wish to display.

Remove Elements From The Header

There may be times when you are working on a site for yourself or a client that you want to remove certain elements from being displayed within your theme header. In particular, the generator meta tag, the RSD link and the wlwmanifest link won’t be of much use to many users:

<meta name="generator" content="WordPress 3.8.1">
<link rel="EditURI" type="application/rsd+xml" title="RSD" href="http://example.com/xmlrpc.php?rsd">
<link rel="wlwmanifest" type="application/wlwmanifest+xml" href="http://example.com/wp-includes/wlwmanifest.xml">

To remove these attributes from being displayed we can use the following code snippet:

add_filter('the_generator', create_function('', 'return "";'));
remove_action('wp_head', 'rsd_link');
remove_action('wp_head', 'wlwmanifest_link');

Change WordPress Dashboard Login Logo

A cool stylish thing to do when creating a WordPress site for a client is to change the logo that is displayed on the WordPress login page.

add_action( 'login_head', 'my_custom_login');
function my_custom_login() {
	echo '<style type="text/css">
	h1 a { background-image:url('. get_stylesheet_directory_uri() . '/images/login-logo.png' . ') !important; margin-bottom: 10px; }
	padding: 20px;}
	</style>
	<script type="text/javascript">window.onload = function(){document.getElementById("login").getElementsByTagName("a")[0].href = "'. home_url() . '";document.getElementById("login").getElementsByTagName("a")[0].title = "Go to site";}</script>';
}

This will display your choosen logo which you will call ‘login-logo.png’ and upload to your themes’ images directory.

Display Content Only To Logged-In Users

You may have converted your WordPress site into a membership type site and you find yourself only wanting to display messages to those users that have successfully logged into your site:

add_shortcode( 'loggedin', 'display_loggedin' );
function display_loggedin( $atts, $content = null ) {
	if( is_user_logged_in() ) return '<p>' . $content . '</p>';
	else return;
}

This code creates a new shortcode with which to wrap content in order to hide it from casual visitors but not logged-in users.

Delete Default Widgets

If you are not using the default WordPress widgets, then why not remove them from your site:

function unregister_default_widgets() {
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Pages');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Calendar');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Archives');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Links');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Meta');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Search');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Text');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Categories');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Recent_Posts');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Recent_Comments');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_RSS');
     unregister_widget('WP_Widget_Tag_Cloud');
     unregister_widget('WP_Nav_Menu_Widget');
     unregister_widget('Twenty_Eleven_Ephemera_Widget');
 }
 add_action('widgets_init', 'unregister_default_widgets', 11);

Simply remove any widgets from the above code snippet that you want o keep.

Redirect WordPress Feeds to Feedburner

It’s great that WordPress offers feeds out of the box. But if you want statistics about your subscribers, you’ll have to use FeedBurner or a similar service. To redirect your feed to one of these, use the following snippet:

add_action('template_redirect', 'my_rss_redirect');
function my_rss_redirect() {
	if ( is_feed() && !preg_match('/feedburner|feedvalidator/i', $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'])){
		header('Location: http://feeds.feedburner.com/YOUR FEEDBURNER USERNAME');
		header('HTTP/1.1 302 Temporary Redirect');
	}
}

In the above code snippet, simply replace ‘YOUR FEEDBURNER USERNAME’ with your Feedburner Username.

Display Featured Images In Feed

To encourage subscribers to visit your website, rather than letting them just consume content through your RSS feed, you might want to display only the excerpt and featured image of posts. But WordPress doesn’t display the featured image in the RSS feed by default. Use the following code to do so. You can even add HTML to it.

add_filter('the_content_feed', 'rss_post_thumbnail');
function rss_post_thumbnail($content) {
	global $post;
	if( has_post_thumbnail($post->ID) )
		$content = '<p>' . get_the_post_thumbnail($post->ID, 'thumbnail') . '</p>' . $content;
	return $content;
}

Display Content Only To RSS Subscribers

To increase subscribers to your RSS feed, you could offer a gift available only to them. The code below creates a new shortcode with which to wrap content in order to hide it from regular visitors but not from RSS subscribers.

add_shortcode( 'feedonly', 'my_feedonly_content' );
function my_feedonly_content( $atts, $content = null ) {
	if( is_feed() ) return '<p>' . $content . '</p>';
	else return;
}

How to Remove the container with the wp_nav_menu() function http://www.wpinsite.com/code-snippets/remove-container-wp_nav_menu-function http://www.wpinsite.com/code-snippets/remove-container-wp_nav_menu-function#comments Thu, 05 Dec 2013 21:09:52 +0000 http://www.wpinsite.com/?p=7375 This short code code snippet will demonstrate how to remove the <ul> container that often encases our navigational menus when using the wp_nav_menu() function.

There may be times when you are working on a WordPress theme or your own site menu when you wish to remove the encasing <ul> or <div> that wraps around your WordPress navigation menus when you use the wp_nav_menu() function.

To achieve this we will want to use the items_wrap attribute that for the wp_nav_menu() function.

The Code

By default the items_wrap attribute uses this format when creating the menu

'items_wrap' => '</ul><ul id=\"%1$s\" class=\"%2$s\">%3$s</ul>'

To remove the <ul> or <div> surrounding container change the items_wrap attribute to:

'items_wrap'=>'%3$s'

Demo Menu Call

A demonstration of using the items_class attribute in a menu call may look like this:

wp_nav_menu(array('menu_id' => 'top_menu', 'menu_class' => 'top_nav', 'theme_location' => 'top-menu', 'items_wrap' => '%3$s'));
