How to hide post titles in WordPress

Posted by & filed under WordPress.

For a site I’m working on I needed a way to hide the post title, but only on specific posts. This particular post was a quote with a big image on top, and it looked better with the image, but no heading text. Google brought me a few options, but I ended up doing it… Read more »

Auto post to Pinterest from WordPress

Posted by & filed under Coding, WordPress.

A few months ago I needed a way to cross post from a WordPress blog to a Pinterest board. Yes, there are plugins that claim to do this. But the few free ones that I tried never actually posted, and I didn’t want to spend money on a paid plugin that might not work. So… Read more »

Use topic text for meta description in bbPress

Posted by & filed under WordPress.

I’m using bbPress on a couple of support forums. But a few days ago I went to share a thread on Facebook and noticed that the description coming from WordPress with Yoast SEO installed is showing the first part of the page content. In my case it was something like “This thread contains 2 voice,… Read more »

Always Edit in HTML WordPress plugin

Posted by & filed under WordPress.

This is another one of those plugins that I’d thought about writing and Google kept me from needing to. Sometimes when building a WordPress site I’ll need to create pages using straight HTML instead of the WYSIWYG editor. Without fail though I’ll accidentally click on the Visual tab and the editor will clear out most of my… Read more »

How to remove .lead CSS class from parent theme

Posted by & filed under Coding, WordPress.

I’ve usd the 320press Bootstrap WordPress theme as a parent theme on a couple of projects, including this site. Overall, it’s great.

Rewrite of the Insert JS & CSS Plugin

Posted by & filed under WordPress.

Turns out the Insert JavaScript & CSS plugin needed some serious rewriting. And rather than patching together what I had already written, I just started over and what came out was a much better plugin. It’s moved homes as well. My plugins are going to move back to Reliti.com. And I don’t plan on taking… Read more »

Meta Shortcode plugin for WordPress

Needed a way to display meta field info in a post as part of a site rebuild I’m working on. The meta shortcode plugin adds a short code to WordPress that will display the contents of a meta field if it exists, and optionally something else if it doesn’t. Download You can get the plugin… Read more »

Updated Plain Text CPT Plugin

Posted by & filed under WordPress.

Had to do a quick update for my Plain Text Custom Post Type WordPress plugin. Right now I’m only using it one site, and I’ve never noticed a problem until this week. The JavaScript wasn’t working from another computer. Turns out it was conflicting with the stats module in Jetpack. Jetpack inserts a bit of… Read more »

Margins around MathJax equations in WordPress

Posted by & filed under WordPress.

Love the MathJax plugin for WordPress. Makes it really easy to insert equations, assuming you’re somewhat familiar with Latex formatting. Problem is, there is always no space below the equation. I’ve been just hitting enter a couple of times after the closing latex tag, but I wanted a better solution. Since there’s a syntax attribute… Read more »
