By default when you publish a widget to a sidebar in WordPress, that widget is going to show up everywhere that sidebar exists. The problem is that you may not want that widget to show up everywhere, so what do you do? We will need a plugin to accomplish our goal…
Before you install your new WordPress theme, there is one thing you should consider before you activate it and begin setting up your website, because what you decide from this point on will either save you headaches or give you one (or many).
When writing a post, whether it’s for the blog or a page, most people are familiar with how you insert images (media) into your content. There is also the option to insert a featured image instead of directly into the post itself. However, what about adding an image to a text widget, or just simply adding an image to a sidebar?
It’s really easy to update a theme when you installed one from the WordPress theme repository (the free themes) when you get a notification that there’s an update for your theme, as well as plugins. But what about themes that you installed yourself from outside of WordPress, such as Shaped Pixels?
Do you ever find yourself in confusion with a little frustration and annoyance that your WordPress does not perform some basic things that it really should? How about feeling unsure of where to go or what to do when you come up to the point of creating your website and you are now stuck? Finally at last, you realize you need a plugin, but the question is, what plugin do you use?
I’m sure many have encountered this problem…you are building a website using WordPress, drag a widget into a sidebar, add your content, and then you noticed that every single page in your website that has that sidebar is now showing the widget everywhere. Frustrating at best, especially if you want to show it only on a few pages, but not all pages.
Probably one of the most challenging thing you will face as some point in time is finding a reliable and quality web host provider that will not fail you. Let’s face it, when you perform a Google search for web hosts, you will soon realize just how saturated your choices are, but are they all good hosts?
One of the odd things about using the WordPress gallery shortcode is that you cannot attach custom links to your images (thumbnails). By default, they link to either a larger version of the same image or they link to an attachment page that acts like a slideshow viewer. But what if you want to link your images to something else such as a page or even an external website?
