Publish on social networks • WordPress Help

For some time now he has been asking ways to publish entries created with WordPress on social networks and, I'm sorry, I have been leaving this postponed because I personally had the problem solved using several methods, not all internal WordPress.

So far I have tried several systems, mainly forced because there are many ways to share entries on Twitter but it was not the same in other social media services . But well, I will comply with your requests and show what I consider best methods of sharing entries on social networks.

Share on Twitter

Twitter is the beautiful girl as there are many plugins that facilitate us the possibility of sharing our entries in this social communication tool, we will see some of the best.

Simple Twitter Connect : Great plugin that allows a multitude of features to integrate Twitter into your created site with WordPress, including the publication of your entries in your Twitter account.

Twitter Tools : Perhaps the most well-known plugin of integration with Twitter but that is no more complete than Simple Twitter Connect. However, it also allows you to publish your site's entries on Twitter.

Twitter this : The simplest of all the plugins but which perfectly fulfills the utility of publishing your posts on Twitter . If you do not need more options than this is your plugin.

Share on social networks

For Twitter there is a lot, and the above are just a few examples (the best ones in my opinion), but to do the same in other social networks like Facebook LinkedIn or even MySpace things get complicated. Maybe that's why I propose a bit of everything …

RSS Graffitti : Precisely because of the difficulty of finding automated systems that work well, for a long time I used that Facebook application. It is not a plugin for WordPress but an internal Facebook application. Once activated, it allows you to register your sites and share in your profile or Facebook page everything you post, efficiently and, what is more important, maintaining your permanent links, not with redirects like other internal Facebook systems.

Simple Facebook Connect : Simple Connect's Twitter Connect plugin and, like the other one, it has several modules that can be activated at will with which to integrate your Facebook account with your WordPress. Of course, one of the modules allows you to post your entries on your Facebook page or profile automatically.

Sociable : This plugin is not for you but for your visitors, so they can Share your entries in your social profiles. It's not going to be all that you share your tickets, right? Supports a huge amount of social services.

Network Publisher : This is one of the most complete plugins for publishing WordPress content on social networks. It supports the possibility of publishing on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, MySpace, Yammer, Yahoo and The handicap is that you have to register in and register your networks to work, but once the process is done it is automatic.

Social discussions : Of the same authors than the previous one, this plugin integrates the self-publishing functionality in your social profiles in addition to another good amount of utilities, such as buttons for your readers to share your tickets and much more. The process of activating self-publishing is like with Network Publisher.

Well, I hope I helped you. There are many others but for a few months many of them have stopped working, mainly due to the identification requirements of Twitter and Facebook. These work and fulfill the usefulness that we hope for effectively.

How to disable scripts and styles • WordPress Help

 unplugged "title =" unplugged "width =" 346 "height =" 500 "class =" aligncenter size-medium wp-image-5683 "srcset =" 346w, 418w "sizes =" (max-width: 346px) 100vw, 346px "/> </a></p>
<p> There are many <strong> plugins and themes that add JavaScript and CSS </strong> to your site, which in itself is not bad , when you use several plugins of this type can do real tricks with your site, showing an unfortunate version of it when <strong> interfere with various CSS styles or scripts </strong>. </p>
<p> Fortunately <a href= WordPress has its own system that allows to override these scripts and styles .

In this example we use two very popular plugins, Contact Form 7 and WP-PageNavi ]but you can apply it to other similar ones, like Sociable, that also sins of the same thing.

The crude reality

Not all the plugins do the job well loading scripts and styles, many of them only think about their functionality, without taking into account that they will have to live with other plugins, with your theme, even with WordPress . Many developers put "their own" and then you have to search for life if there are problems, even recommending (when you ask) that you disable other plugins or "change the theme" (true).

Not all plugins use methods suitable for loading scripts and styles. Most of the time it is because they do not master two important WordPress functions: wp_enqueue_script () and wp_enqueue_style () . If the author of a plugin / theme does not use these functions, better find another plugin / theme or encourage him to do so. What they do is allow the rest to coexist with their code.

Once you are clear which scripts or CSS you want to deactivate, you can get down to work …

Deactivating JavaScript

In the example, we will disable Javascript of the Contact Form 7 plugin. The first thing we have to do is find the call to the script. For that we open the file wp-contact-form-7.php in a text editor and look for the string wp_enqueue_script . We will find the following:

We save the file and what we get is that the script Do not reload. You can disable (unregister) as many scripts as you want with this function.

Deactivating styles

For this example we are going to deactivate the style sheet of the WP-PageNavi plugin. And it is almost better to always add styles in your CSS, and not to take them from the plugins folders, sometimes update the plugins with CSS changes that can destroy your theme.

The first thing we have to do is open the file wp-pagenavi.php in a text editor and search wp_enqueue_style . What we found is this code:

And also this one:

What we are looking for is how Page Navi manages the styles. Once we have found it, we can close it (after analyzing it) and add the following to the file functions.php of your theme:

This disables the stylesheet of this plugin. As before, you can "unregister" how many styles you want with this feature.

Tips for improving the task

Now that we have disabled scripts and styles there are some things we can do to improve this technique or give it other uses:

  • Place the deactivated styles (or those you want to change) at the end of your stylesheet ( style.css ), adding some comment that identifies them, showing what they affect.
  • Combine several scripts in a single file and load them yourself.
  • Use conditional tags to fine-tune the control of loading styles and / or scripts.
  • If you turn off something, the / theme plugin may stop working properly. Most styles can be added to the style sheet of your theme so as not to load multiple style sheets. But with Javascript is different, with this type of code only combines several scripts if you really know what you are doing
