Convert Themes WordPress to Habari • WordPress Help

We have already commented about this Open Source project created by former WordPress programmers: Habari .

One of its difficulties is that there is not yet a large community after this project, but with the tutorial They have created in Habari Fun sure to grow soon.

Revolution 2

After the announcement that the theme Revolution became Open Source under the GPL license just a month later the Revolution 2 appears.

] This new incarnation of one of the most famous themes offers 8 different styles:

  • Revolution Black Canvas – Ideal for Fotologs
  • Revolution Lifestyle – Perhaps the most successful, perfect for magazines. [19659007] Revolution Office – More serious and professional, interesting for a Portolio.

  • Revolution Charred – Beautiful, interesting-looking theme

The themes prem ium will still be available until tomorrow but the new ones have a great appearance, they have nothing to envy to those of payment. I really liked the Black Canvas which is the same for my fotolog.

These new themes are all free but they also offer payment packages where they offer support.

How to limit the size of the extracts • WordPress Help

More and more themes use the visualization of excerpts instead of full posts on the cover of blogs, especially magazine-type themes. However, not always the default size of the extracts is adapted to our needs.

If you want to be able to control the size of the extracts without needing plugins, you only have to edit the file in question and replace the function the_excerpt () with the following code:

If you look at the code, the first thing that is defined is the number of words that the extract will contain, in this case 50. use the PHP function substr () to have only the first 50 words of the extract. Then it is verified that the new extract is shorter than the engraving in the database, and if so, we add it. Finally the abstract of only 50 words is shown.

Of course, not only can you use it on the cover of a theme magazine, it is also equally valid in single.php or even the file page, categories, authors, where you want to substitute the existing extract by a personalized one.

Offer multi-language information

Several times it was commented on the blog and also in the forum about offering two languages ​​in the same blog. But if your interest is just cite a paragraph or frace in a language other than the original or you want to learn more about the language settings you can read those links, they may be useful to you.

The why of the change from 2.5 to Crazyhorse

Nobody escapes that there seem to be too many changes in the admin panel from version 2.3 to 2.5 and now the switch to the interface Crazyhorse in WordPress 2.7 . But the case is that everything has its explanation .

The guys from Automattic after the change of panel in version 2.5 did a usability study of the new interface and the compared with experimental development Crazyhorse . Well, as can be seen in this presentation and this PDF the advantages when using one interface or another clearly opted for Crazyhorse, and hence they have chosen this design for the next version.

What do you think ?, if you have tried the demo of WordPress 2.7 do you think you gain in usability ?, does it really take less and is more intuitive to do each action ?, are less used? Clicks?
