Choose the sidebar … in each post • WordPress Help

The first thing is to open the file single.php or page.php of your active template (theme) and find the call to the function get_sidebar () this:

From this moment, when you're writing a related article, let's say, with software, and if you have a sidebar with the latest news or software downloads you've called ' barra_software .php ', you only have to add a custom field with the name " sidebar " and as a value you put the name of the bar without the extension, in this example it would be " barra_software. "

That sidebar will be shown in that entry.

"more" that break the template • WordPress Help

A curious thing happened to us recently in the blog network and that I share in case it ever happens to you, it's something I did not know could happen.

It turns out that suddenly the template of one of the blogs appeared unconfigured with the sidebar under the main content. Checking the theme code, still sure that we had not made any changes, there was no open tag or anything strange, so I went to the second step when there are problems: reviewing the code inserted in the posts.

And the only thing I found was that the tags 'more' were wrapped in 'divs' a very strange question, and that it had no logic unless the editor had used a desktop manager to insert them automatically and I would not have noticed, for example.

So you know, the 'more' alone, without company.

Considerations before buying a premium theme • WordPress Help

These days I had to analyze the purchase of a couple of themes premium and I found several difficulties that I did not Many warn, so I take the boldness to give them some advice about it.

Generally nobody buys a theme to use it exactly as the author shows, we all need to make some small changes in it and that's when the problems arise. Before paying anything, better to make some inquiries, right?

1) Is there an obfuscated code in the theme?

For me it is the first question that arises and determines categorically whether or not I will buy the theme . Generally the footer code of the free themes is obfuscated, to make it a bit difficult to remove the link to the author (reasonable thing), but in premium themes we can see that they obfuscate the functions.php file! This is a big problem when we want to create a new sidebar with widgets, change the way the images of the posts are taken in the home and add special functions in general. Ask before you buy!

2) The theme has support? Let's put it to the test …

I think the test of fire is to see if the person responsible responds quickly to question number 1. If such a response is delayed a lot, we continue our journey in search of another site of premium themes. If you respond within a reasonable amount of time, then continue to search your site and search for a forum. Many times we will find that the access is restricted to members, but others leave it visible for visitors as well and we can confirm the dates on which users ask and those responsible offer solutions.

You should also read the terms and conditions of use of the theme to confirm when the support we will receive and the scope of it expires. If you have any doubt, send us an email.

3) Look for references from other customers!

Going everywhere. Let's do a thorough search placing the name of the site and have preference for the forums in general. Users who feel cheated do not hesitate to leave a trace of it in their favorite forum and translate their adventures with the company in question. Obviously we can not believe everything we read, but we will have negative opinions available to evaluate. We may also have the good fortune to listen to clients that were satisfied with their premium theme and that encourages us to decide for the purchase.

4) Themes Club or buy a Premium Theme?

reality this goes in tastes and depends exclusively on your needs. If you want to have several premium themes available to modify, you will choose the first one. If you only need a theme for a particular site, you will choose the second one.

What we can highlight about the first option is that we have to evaluate how often new themes come out and what quality they are. Some sites have a "premium theme club" in which an annual membership is purchased and people are fooled into believing that every month will have at least 2 premium themes.

The advice here is that before buying any membership of this type , subscribe to the feeds of the site and check the quality of the material that they broadcast every month. Maybe the site is completely abandoned!

5) I need a theme "like this" but quite modified …

Each theme has its "tricks" to work properly. Some people buy a premium theme and then they screw up when they want to modify it on their own, but they understand that a little of their knowledge escapes and they end up asking a third party to finish the work. Conclusion, pagás twice for a single theme.

Before getting into this mess, let's ask how much the original authors would charge for making the relevant modifications. No one better than them to efficiently achieve what we need! If you are going to spend money, try to get exactly the theme you are looking for, even if that means some extra dollars.

Finally, remember that we can always choose to hire a freelance to design the required theme. Especially to Latin Americans, sometimes it is difficult for us to make payments to the US and Europe, so it is an opportunity to bet on finding designers of our nationalities and maybe we are astonished discovering very talented people.

I hope you find it useful !

Show a random post • WordPress Help

If you want, for example, to add a random post in your sidebar that changes on each page that is shown, you only have to edit your file ' sidebar.php ' (or whatever it's called in your theme ) and add in a new block the following:

This code will show you 1 post in the sidebar, with the title and extract of it. If you want to show more posts you just have to change '' showposts' => 1 'to another number you decide, and if you do not want to show the extract you just have to "comment" or delete the line' the_excerpt (); ', just like that.

Divine Proportion in your Theme • WordPress Help

 anatomia-blog "title =" anatomia-blog "width =" 600 "height =" 564 "class =" aligncenter size-full wp -image-3669 "srcset =" 600w, /anatomia-blog-500x470.jpg 500w "sizes =" (max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px "/> </a></p>
<p> In case you did not know, the <strong> divine proportion </strong> or <strong> golden ratio </strong> is an aesthetic convention that throughout history artists and designers have followed, conscious or not of it, to obtain aesthetic proportions that people recognize without knowing very well how to reach them, but perceive them. <br /><span id=

This is an algebraic number that has many interesting properties and was discovered in antiquity, not as a "unit" but as a ratio or proportion.This proportion is found in some geometrical figures as in nature in elements such as shells, ribs of the leaves of some trees, the thickness of the branches, etc. ((Ref: Wikipedia )). It is usually represented as the Greek letter φ (fi) and its mathematical formula would be the following …

 numero-aureo "title =" numero-aureo "width =" 516 "height =" 44 "class =" aligncenter size-full wp-image-3668 "srcset =" 516w, 12 / number-aureus-300x25.png 300w "sizes =" (max-width: 516px) 100vw, 516px "/> </p>
<p> The interesting thing of <strong> aureus number </strong><strong> divine proportion </strong> or <strong> irrational number </strong> (it is called in many ways) can be applied equally to the themes of your blog, and that is what they have analyzed <a href= in NetTuts studying the proportions of the contents of Each part of a theme can draw conclusions on how to apply the golden ratio to your template.

Some examples would be these:

1. Let's say that the width of your content is 900 pixels, if you divide it between the golden ratio (1.62) will give you the ratio that the post zone and the sidebar should have: 555 and 345 pixels respectively

 golden-ratio "title =" golden-ratio "width = "600" height = "235" class = "alignnone size-full wp-image-3671" srcset = " 600w, 300w "sizes =" (max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px "/> </a></p>
<p> <strong> 2 . </strong> Or, for example, if you want to know the divine proportion of a banner of 300 pixels wide, only dividing it by 1.62 you will know that it should be 185 pixels high, it leaves the standard of 300 × 250 but what if we change it and it works? </p>
<p> <a href=  golden-ratio-box "title =" golden-ratio-box "width =" 391 "height =" 327 "class =" alignnone size-full wp-image -3670 "srcset =" 391w, /golden-ratio-box-300x250.jpg 300w "sizes =" (max-width: 391px) 100vw, 391px "/> </a></p>
<p> Well, I just found the article interesting and I wanted to share it, not in vain is it It's a very funny topic and it has brought students of all ages crazy, and if you look closely, the structure of most of the WordPress templates follows a very approximate proportion to this convention, did you notice? </p>
