Flowers are the essential part of many plants’ life cycles. They are also crucial to the life cycle and nourishment of insects and birds. Many beneficial insects need the sweet nectar from a flower to sustain themselves. Ladybugs are a great example of this, if there aren’t enough aphids around for lunch they look for flower pollen and nectar. The […]
It is Possible to Include HTML Fields in Notifications and Confirmations
I recently needed to create conditional logic in a Gravity Form that shows HTML fields in response to various user inputs. The trouble is that HTML fields do not appear in the default Notifications and Confirmations.
Gravity forms support says the HTML fields are design elements, not form elements so there […]
I had a pretty serious problem with s2Member EOT reminders not being sent
on a website with a large user base, about 2000. This was resulting in potentially a large loss of member renewals. The strange thing was that many of the EOT reminders were going out, so it made me lax in checking if ALL of them were going out. […]
Here is a quick video introduction to the WordPress Dashboard which includes Woocommerce on the Genesis Framework.
In the process of moving content from one site to another I needed to change the post type, which is easy with a plugin like Post Type Switcher. However, this doesn’t bring along the comments.
Post type switcher now migrates comments with the post.
This process turned out to be much more complicated than I had originally hoped, however with the aid […]
On a recent project I needed to check if a Gravity Form had been submitted before allowing the user to access content. Additionally we needed to check if the submission had happened within a specific time frame: within the past year.
It is easy to use Gravity Forms built in confirmations to redirect to a given page after submission. But, what […]
I needed to exclude specific custom taxonomy terms from the Genesis [post_info] shortcode which by default lists all the terms in the taxonomy in the post meta.
I achieved this by modifying the get_the_terms_list() function, which is used in the Genesis post_info shortcode. Then create a new shortcode [filtered_post_info] to use instead of [post_info].
The first step is creating a new function […]
Here’s the problem:
You have a custom taxonomy and you need to create a taxonomy dropdown list, similar to the WordPress category dropdown option.
You need to have multiple taxonomy dropdowns for the child terms within the taxonomy. (get_term_children)
These term lists should be sorted alphabetically.
When selected the term should link to its archive page with a nice pretty permalink. (jump menu)
The term […]
As a WordPress web designer I get a lot of opportunity to work with different web hosts and services.
One of the major problems I find with web hosting and WordPress, on shared hosting, is slow load times and long timeouts.
Most shared hosting these days offers unlimited storage and unlimited bandwidth. This sounds great because people think that unlimited bandwidth means […]
