I’m still relatively new to PHP and the one thing that continues to trip me up is the use of global variables
Although the inFocus theme I
use now used previously comes with its own popular posts and related posts widgets I much prefer the functionality of the aforementioned plugins.
Unfortunately, when displayed the layout and styling for both these plugins doesn’t really fit with the overall inFocus theme.
I recently posted a solution for allowing users of the WebTreats inFocus theme for WordPress to choose how post excerpts are displayed.
am of course using this solution on my site.
Shortly after implementation I noticed some rather odd-looking URLs associated with a couple of the Read More links on this blog.
I’m no designer and since switching to WordPress I’ve been using a third party theme template. A template can’t cater for everyone’s needs and one particular change I’ve made is the way in which post excerpts are displayed.
The theme uses the the_excerpt() function, but I much prefer using the WordPress<!––more––> quicktag in my posts in conjunction with the the_content(‘Read More’) function.
For a while I was using the excellent swiftmailer which performed perfectly on both my local and remote servers for a while, but subsequently ceased working on my remote server.
A great alternative is the PEAR Mail package. Both MAMP and XAMPP come with the PEAR framework pre-configured, so installing the Mail package is straightforward.
