WordPress, WordPress Troubleshooting

If you’re a new WordPress users, or perhaps even a veteran, you may have noticed an inability to work with your widgets at Appearance -> Widgets in your Dashboard. This is fortunately not common, but it can lead to a ton of confusion and many hours of frustrating attempts to fix it. First, make sure that your browser has JavaScript enabled. This is usually the most common cause of the issue, and fortunately the easiest to fix. If your browser does have JavaScript enabled, use an FTP or SFTP client to access your server and a plain text editor to edit your wp-config.php file. Once the file is open, add define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false); below the define(‘DB_HOST’ line and save the file. In most cases, one of the two methods will work for you. If you’re still having trouble, stop by the WordPress Support Forums for further assistance.

One of the greatest strengths of WordPress is the widget system. As long as a theme supports sidebars, it can use widgets which can be anything from a Twitter status update area to a static text box. The beauty of the system is that you can move content around without using any extravagant code. Thankfully, themes have really started to embrace the sidebar/widget system in 2010 by providing an ample amount of sidebars and in some cases, the opportunity to create as well as place sidebars where you want them. However, the default widget system in WordPress does not offer granularity out of the box. When a widget is placed within a sidebar, that widget will show up on every post/page that the sidebar is on. I’ve personally been waiting to see WordPress come up with their own system of being able to dictate when and where widgets will show […]

Addicott Web has a great little article online that goes in depth on the uses of WordPress conditional statements. The Conditional Tags can be used in your Template files to change what content is displayed and how that content is displayed on a particular page depending on what conditions that page matches. These statements enable a wide range of flexibility when it comes to when and where to display content. In fact, I use conditional tags all the time with my use of the Widget Logic plugin. I tell the widget which page I want it to be displayed on with a conditional statement and it only shows up on that page. I love these things. Let me know in the comments what you’ve been able to achieve using them in your own theme or widgets.

When you build a website one of the things most people want are visitors.  New visitors are great because they tend to turn into return visitors.  People will return to your website because they find the content entertaining, informative and worth their time. However, you know how busy we get these days.  We save a link to our favorites for a website and promise that we will be back on a regular basis.  How often do you really go to your favorites directory and go back visiting websites? I know my answer – rarely. So what can you offer that might draw your site visitors back to your site every once in a while?  WordPress has this great ability to create RSS (stands for Really Simple Syndication) feeds.  These RSS feeds are read through most modern internet browsers, stand alone free reader programs, web based reader programs and even office […]
