In a previous post, we learned how to enable WordPress shortcode in excerpts and custom fields. We also mentioned how to enable them in 3rd party plugins and in this article, we will go into more detail about this and show how to enable shortcodes in the Contact Form 7 plugin. We might want to add the custom shortcodes in the Mail Template, such as mail body, or use them in the Form Template to style the contact form to our liking.
Shortcodes are a very popular feature in WordPress that allows you to add custom functionality to the content. WordPress also has some built-in shortcodes on its own. They are very easy to use inside the posts or pages and they even work inside the Text Widget. But they won’t work when they are added in an excerpt or a custom field. This article will show you how to use shortcodes in those cases too.
With excerpts in WordPress, you can have them for both posts and pages, but for pages, the excerpts are disabled by default. Even for posts, they can be hidden inside the post editor or they could be disabled altogether. This article will show you how to fix the issue of missing excerpts and make them visible in posts and how to enable them in the page editor.
Recently, I was writing an article containing programming code on the WordPress website. The code had single and double quotes in it and noticed that when I did Copy and Paste from the article into a code editor and then try to run the code, it threw syntax errors. It turned out that WordPress was automatically changing some characters when displaying the code syntax. In this article, we will learn how to make sure that the "Copy and Paste" of quotes work without a problem.
Recently I had some issues with EasyPHP development server, so I decided to install PHP, Apache & MySQL manually on my local machine. After everything was set up, the WordPress website on localhost loaded without any issue, but when I clicked on any of the post or page links, I got an error telling me that the requested URL was not found. This article will show how I fixed this issue.
The qTranslate-X is a free popular plugin that adds support for multiple languages on a WordPress site. I really like it, but the only issue I have with it is that the default image flags for the Language Menu are not that good. In this article, I will first show you different types of Language Switching Menu we can choose from and the two ways we can display them. Finally, we are going to replace those default images with our own.
In my article about WordPress tag cloud widget, I showed you how you can display a count number for each tag. But what if you want to limit tags displaying only the most popular tags and hide those with low count values. The tag cloud in WordPress doesn't have the parameter for that behavior, but by using another parameter, we can achieve the same result. In this article, we will add the code that will show only those tags in the tag cloud, that have count parameter value of 3 or more.
