Speed Up WordPress: A Developer’s POV

Speed Up WordPress: A Developer’s POV
8 OPINIONS!

As an end-user, you might find WordPress ridiculously slow sometimes, not because WordPress itself is slow, but rather the way you're using WordPress is not optimized. That's why speeding up WordPress is a topic that can never get old.

All articles found on the Internet... more

Great WordPress Plugins (Small Giants) – Part 2

Great WordPress Plugins (Small Giants) – Part 2
7 OPINIONS!

A WordPress plugin can choose to be great instead of big, and it seems obvious to me that people always want to use an efficient plugin that is somewhat feature-limited, rather than a plugin that does a lot of things, but also uses a lot of resources along the way.

A WordPress constant is simply a variable that can not be changed once it is defined. As static as a constant is, it still plays an important role in controlling how your WordPress works.

Create Fake Pages in WordPress

Create Fake Pages in WordPress
36 OPINIONS!

People's need is changing everyday, and so is WordPress. From a simple blogging software, WordPress has evolved into a somewhat feature-rich Content Management System. It is, therefore, not a surprise if we, users and developers, always try to do crazy things with WordPress these days, and creating virtual (fake) WordPress pages is simply one of those unusual objectives.

So, what do we need fake pages for anyway? What I find particularly useful about... more

No Smilies Conversion in Code Tags

Awaiting Opinion...

Show latest Posts from each Post Type
11 OPINIONS!

On WordPress.org's Support Forum, there are many questions asked regarding the same topic: How should we modify WordPress's main query to have a fancier output, namely latest posts from each category or latest posts from each post type?
