10 WordPress Hacks to Make your Life Easy

Displaying Gravatars in comments

To refresh your memory, Gravatars are little user images from Gravatar.com that are displayed against your comments in the theme (if the theme is built to support Gravatars). A lot of WordPress themes are built without the support of Gravatars. So, here is some help for you to add Gravatars in your theme. Open up your comments.php file from the theme folder. Find this piece of code :-

Replace the above code with the following code :-

=2.5)
echo get_avatar( $comment->comment_author_email, $size = '50', $comment->comment_author_link);?>


The above code will display the Gravatars. Now let us add some CSS to the style.css file for your theme.

.gravs {margin-top:20px;}
.avatar {float:left; margin-right:5px; margin-bottom:5px; padding:3px; border:1px solid #999999;}

When you check your theme again, you will see the Gravatar images against your comments.

Image Gallery in WordPress

All the versions of WordPress 2.5+ have inbuilt Image Gallery function where you can upload your images in a set and then insert the gallery either into your post or a new page.

But almost all the old themes(before 2.5) and many new ones do not have the integrated functionality. In order to add this feature, here is what you have to do :-

In your existing theme, open single.php and save it as image.php in your theme folder. Now open this image.php file in an editor and find the line that displays the post content. It should be somewhat in the following form. It can differ a bit but the function is called by the_content like this :-

Now insert the following code above the aforementioned code (the_content) :-

ID, 'medium' ); ?>

post_excerpt) ) the_excerpt(); // this is the "caption" ?>

Insert the following code below the aforementioned code (the_content) :-


Now, add this CSS to your theme’s style.css file :-

/****************Image Gallery *********************/
.gallery {text-align:center;}
.gallery img {padding:2px; height:100px; width:100px;}
.gallery a:hover {background-color:#ffffff;}
.attachment {text-align:center;}
.attachment img { padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999;}
.attachment a:hover {background-color:#FFFFFF;}
.imgnav {text-align:center;}
.imgleft {float:left;}
.imgleft a:hover {background-color:#FFFFFF;}
.imgleft img{ padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999; height:100px; width:100px;}
.imgright {float:right;}
.imgright a:hover {background-color:#FFFFFF;}
.imgright img{ padding:2px; border:1px solid #999999; height:100px; width:100px;}

The above CSS code fixes the default gallery of WordPress which doesn’t look so good. So, now when you go and upload your images in a post or a page, go to the gallery option (after you have finished uploading all your images) and insert gallery into your post/page. That’s it!

Adding a “Subscribe to feed” message after every post

Many people use this kind of message to remind the readers to subscribe to their blogs and place them at the end of every post. This can be accomplished by using a simple plugin or you can do the following. If you want the message to show under all your posts on the homepage, open up index.php and just where your content finishes (the_content), add this line :-

If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS Feed

You can do the same for your single.php file in the theme folder which is used to display your individual posts.

Displaying Twitter messages on your blog

If you have a Twitter.com account and want to display the twitters that you make on your blog, here is what you have to do.

Login to your Twitter.com account. Go to this URL :- http://twitter.com/badges/html and choose your settings. Copy the code and paste it on your blog. You can paste it directly into your theme files or use text widgets to put them in a sidebar. They can also be styled through CSS.

Displaying Authors’ Bio

In a multi-user blog, it can be beneficial to show the Authors’ Bio under every single post for the users to read about the post author. This can be done using the Biographical Info in the Your profile setting under Users section of WP-Admin.

To integrate this bio, open up your single.php file and under the_content line (as before), add this code :-

Now, add the following CSS code to your style.css in the theme folder:-

.author{
color: #222222;
font-family: Arial;
font-size: 12px;
border:1px solid #CCCCCC;
width: 500px;
padding: 5px;
margin-top:10px;
margin-bottom:10px;
}

Now if you refresh your individual post pages, you will see the author’s info under the post content.

Categories drop down

To add a good looking drop down that will list all your existing categories, insert the following code in your blog template. You can do it either in your sidebar.php file or anywhere in the index.php. This is the code :-



$select = wp_dropdown_categories('show_option_none=Select category&show_count=1&orderby=name&echo=0');
$select = preg_replace("#]*)>#", "", $select);
echo $select;
?>

Archives drop down

Just like in categories, you can have your monthly archives listed in a drop down. Add the following code to your template files :-

Adding 125×125 Ads to your sidebar

Many people do not know how to integrate 125×125 banner ads into their theme sidebars. I will explain it to you. Save the following image to your desktop (this is a sample 125×125 banner that we will use) :-

Make a folder called “ads” in your theme folder (the theme in which you want to add these banners) and place this image (125.gif) in that new folder. Now, add the following code to your sidebar where you want the banners to appear :-

Advertising
Advertising



Finally, add the following CSS code to your style.css file :-

.bannerads {width:270px; margin:10px auto;}
.ad_125x125 {float:left; margin:0px 5px 10px 5px; width:125px; height:125px;}

When you refresh your theme, you will see two adjacent 125×125 banner ads in your sidebar. You can then change the images as you like and also the hyperlinks.

Displaying most commented (popular) posts

There is always an urge in bloggers to showcase their most popular posts or the posts with the most comments. This is how you can do it:-

Place the following code at the end of your header.php file in the theme folder. You can change the number of popular post titles that will be pulled from the database by altering the $no_posts variable in the code :-

', $after = '

', $show_pass_post = false, $duration='') {
global $wpdb;
$request = "SELECT ID, post_title, COUNT($wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID) AS 'comment_count' FROM $wpdb->posts, $wpdb->comments";
$request .= " WHERE comment_approved = '1' AND $wpdb->posts.ID=$wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID AND post_status = 'publish'";
if(!$show_pass_post) $request .= " AND post_password =''";
if($duration !="") { $request .= " AND DATE_SUB(CURDATE(),INTERVAL ".$duration." DAY) < post_date ";
}
$request .= " GROUP BY $wpdb->comments.comment_post_ID ORDER BY comment_count DESC LIMIT $no_posts";
$posts = $wpdb->get_results($request);
$output = '';
if ($posts) {
foreach ($posts as $post) {
$post_title = stripslashes($post->post_title);
$comment_count = $post->comment_count;
$permalink = get_permalink($post->ID);
$output .= $before . '' . $post_title . ' (' . $comment_count.')' . $after;
}
} else {
$output .= $before . "None found" . $after;
}
echo $output;
} ?>

Now, wherever you want to display the popular posts list, place the following code. You can do it in the sidebar or the index.php file.

Adding a Print Button to your posts

In order to enable your users to take printouts of your posts, you can provide them with a Print button on the blog. Open up your single.php file (for individual posts) from the theme folder and add the following code wherever you want to have the Print option:-

    @Dear Socrates:- displaying gravatars provides a more personal feel to your blog, letting readers have their picture rather than the generic one you choose. It may not make your life easier, but it is a great usability feature.

    Having a subscribe to feed button under each of your posts gives the reader a quick and easy way to get updates from your site.. if I have to explain how that makes your (and the reader’s) life easier, than you’re just an idiot.

    A lot of people use Twitter, a lot of people are interested in what their favorite bloggers are saying and doing on Twitter.. hence the relevance

    and placing ads on your blog is a great way to generate revenue to keep the site going..

    was that a sarcastic post, or are you really that dense?

    Good article with a lot of simple tutorials that often escapes the attention of developers.

  69. Hello Jai, this is an interesting post. I usually tell my designers to prepare all this, but your post made things so much clearer. Good stuff!

  70. How’s “Displaying Gravatars” gonna make my life easier working with wordpress?
    “Subscribe to Feed”? Twitter? Ads?

    You gotta be kidding me, this is just a pile of shitty over-used mini-tutorials, and a plugin or two.
    No real info.

    Brilliant piece on how to display the most commented posts. Thank you!

    I like to keep my template files clean, so I recommend that others place this function in their functions.php file (create this file if it does not exist for your theme). It works just fine outside of the header template.

  183. @Young:-
    there are some wrong words in my previous comments, sorry and will be more careful next time. Look forward to your advice.

  184. @Jai, regarding the Displaying most commented (popular) posts, i copied the code and did as you said and published a post on my bog, there is no problem for the post look, but there is a big problem with the RSS Feed–it is impossible to open the feed site on IE :
    http://www.essentialblog.cn/feed/,

    but it is OK on Firefox.

    I think the there are some mistakes in the code, would you please give me some advise how to fit it?

    @Harmony:- This is the code to use to display Gravatars for post authors :-

    < ?php echo get_avatar( get_the_author_email(), '80' ); ?>

    @Yan Shall Blog:- I forgot to add the word “function” before the code. Please copy it again and try.

  215. Hi Jai,

    Any idea how to show gravatars for post authors?

    And, as always, another great post!

    Thanks,
    Harmony

  216. What a great collection of hacks! I attempted to add the most popular post but encountered this error

    Parse error: syntax error, unexpected ‘{‘ in /home/……/public_html/wp-content/themes/sketchd/header.php on line 67

    What could be the problem? I have added the code to my header.php and the php code on my footer.

    Appreciate your guide on this. Thank you…

    Yan

  217. Can you also provide code for showing Author names in the side bar along with the number of posts by each author? I manage a team blog and it would be great to have this. Each name could hyperlink to the posts by that author.

    Authors
    name1 (#)
    name2 (#)

    I used 2 of the tips. I used your code to make my old theme compatible with the new WP galleries. I’ve put in the code, now I am going to upload pictures and try to post a gallery. I hope it works!

    Next I used your Twitter calling code. Easy enough, I put my latest Twitter message right beside where I already had a Twitter chiclet.

    Luckily Twitter warned me to put the “script call” in my WordPress Footer. That way, if Twitter happens to be down for the day, my page will still load.

    On your Print tip, I think the thing that’s missing is a printable stylesheet. A lot of times the regular webpage, with ads and colors and borders, is too much to print. I use Gamerz’ WP-Print plugin for this.

    Have to agree with Chada, The Print This article prints the entire page.

  240. nice work!

    I think that the Print Button is not necessary because that there is already a Print selection in the browses’ File list.

  241. Thanks for the information. I’ve implemented a few of these things into my blog.

  242. Really useful tools.
    The print button is frequently used.
    Thanks for sharing your knowledge!
