I’m gonna keep things short in this article and show you how you can automatically alter WordPress user data after registration.
Use Case: Changing the user’s Display Name
One of WordPress’ present shortcomings is the lack of a configuration option to specify a default display name format for your users. The last sentence was long, so let me give you an example.
In this post I will explain how you can send out custom tweets from WordPress. For this purpose, we will configure and use the functionality present in the WordPress Twitter Tools plug-in.
We’re all enjoying the benefits and features of WordPress 3.0. Custom menus are awesome and custom post types shatter all capability and imagination limits. A small problem arises when these two features are used in conjunction: the classes applied to navigation menu items only reflect direct inheritance, and entities that have their URLs included in the current URL can’t get highlighted.
Default WordPress Configuration Settings
Do you often find yourself changing the default WordPress settings after a fresh install? Not anymore.
WPEngineer has a great article promoting a very simple but ultra-effective plugin.
The plugin was written by Thomas Scholz and addresses the problem of always having to do the same adjustments after a clean WordPress install.
A common problem with the WordPress built-in function for page navigation is the lack of anchor text separator support.
In version 2.7 two more arguments for
wp_list_pages() were added to mitigate this inconvenience:
link_after. When using these, the function prepends or appends the specified strings to the generated anchor text. This works well for styling vertical menus.
