Most people are aware of the plugins for WordPress that help you create forms – Contact Form 7 and Ninja Forms etc. But what about building your own custom ajax contact form using the admin-ajax WordPress functions. Well here is a starter tutorial which I have created where I am guessing you already know the basics of how to create custom themes and pages in WordPress.
The ‘WP Comments Stats‘ WordPress Plugin can be viewed here https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-comment-stats/. It is based on the original plugin ‘Comment Stats‘ found at https://wordpress.org/plugins/comment-stats/ with a few more elements added.
It shows detailed stats of your WordPress comments based (read the full listing) plus it has also been tested in WordPress Version 4.2.2 so it should also work with Version 3.5.
Have you ever wanted to have control over the dropdown menu styles in WordPress’s built-in CMS page editor (tinymce) or had a client ask why the font is a different colour than what appears on their website. Well look no further with this handy little bit of code for adding to the themes functions file.
As all WordPress administrators know the constant issue with new spam and having to block spam comments can become irritating on a daily basis. Most plugins you find will actually just add a captcha code (random generated code) to the comment form or other similar options. But the real issue is that automated spam usually bypass this altogether and goto the following file on the server – ‘wp-comments-post.php‘. As long as a post has the option to leave comments then that’s all they need.
By default WordPress installs with five default user roles. Here is a quick summery:
- Administrator – Has control over everything on the site
- Editor – Has publishing permission and editing access over everyone’s posts
- Author – Has publishing access and can edit its own posts but doesn’t have control over others’ content
- Contributor – Can submit posts but not publish them
- Subscriber – Enables access to edit its user profile and the WordPress dashboard
