Despite the fact WordPress has been around for a while, and the method of adding scripts to themes and plugins has been the same for years, there is still some confusion around how exactly you're supposed to add scripts. So let's clear it up.
Just kidding. That’s not your name is it? Then why keep using it as your WordPress username? Not only is it boring, imagine how easy it is for hackers to guess your admin username.
Well, good news, changing your WordPress admin login username is easy. First, go to your”wp-config.php” file (in the root directory of your WordPress install) and find the name of your WordPress database. It’ll be defined in a line of code that looks like this:
1 2 3
/** The name of the database for WordPress */ define('DB_NAME', 'database_name_here');
Codecademy is an interactive, fun way for beginners to learn how to code. It allows you to track your progress as well as your friends’ progress so that you can motivate each other to learn faster.
Codecademy currently offers four main tracks for learning:
Web Fundamentals – This course teaches you how to build websites with HTML and CSS.
jQuery – The jQuery course covers DOM manipulation, event handling and animation creation.
In my recent tutorial on the additional screen options in the New Post/Page screens, I briefly covered the topic of trackbacks. They can be an effective way of promoting your blog, by letting other blog owners know that you are linking to them.
However, I also mentioned that WordPress blogs are set up by default to send and receive automatic pingbacks. If pingbacks are enabled, you should not send trackbacks. Duplicate trackbacks/pingbacks can be seen as spam, which would produce exactly the opposite effect to what you are hoping for.
Please note: this tutorial assumes that you are using WordPress 3.3.1 with the default Twenty Eleven theme installed.
Okay – I’ll be the first to say that a beginner’s tutorial for a feature that assumes you have a good knowledge of HTML (and by extension, CSS) may not make sense to you. But this tutorial is for people who are new to WordPress, not necessarily new to web design.
With that said, this tutorial intends to cover the features, functionality and limitations of the WordPress HTML. Although the editor may look straightforward enough, there are a few quirks and foibles that you should be familiar with.
I could keep this article very short by simply saying “yes”.
…but that wouldn’t do you much good, would it? After all, if you spent all of your time simply following people’s advice on the internet without understanding the reasons why, you’d be doing an awful lot of crap.
Before I start, I should clarify that when I refer to “code”, I basically mean anything that relates to the back end of your blog. So code, images, and anything else that could be considered “back end” (oo er).
