The theme supports community building through the possibility of letting users submit news and displaying them with the help of a sidebar widget. Further a logged in user can create a favorite post list of entries he or she likes. Read more »
Because of popular demand I recently updated the favorite posts plugin I created a while ago. Since I do not have much time to spare, I wasn’t able to include all features that were suggeste by my readers, but I could implement two that were highly demanded:
- The plugin comes with widget support now
- You can display other peoples favorite posts now (for example on an authors page to display his or her favorite posts)
To take a glimpse how it works you can create an account on my wordpress test installation.
If you like the theme presented there head over to themeforest and download it for a small fee.
Plugin Download is, of course for free, here.
I am currently working on some larger projects, and some of them are in desperate need of a breadcrumb navigation, since there are so many sub categories and pages, that users often have a hard time not to lose track of their current position on the site.
After searching the web for an adequate plugin, the only Breadcrumb navigation I could find was Breadcrumb NavXT. The plugin is basically the only one which supports nested pages as well as nested categories. It has a ton of options… to my mind there are way to many. After testing the plugin on a blank installation my Database query count went from 17 to 59 even if I was on the starting page where no breadcrumb navigation was displayed. So I decided to code a lightweight version for myself.
What you will learn here, are the basics of creating a simple breadcrumb navigation. This tutorial doesn’t offer a complete script, just some snippets to experiment with =)
Aurora Borealis is a WordPress Theme I created after experimenting with some tutorials at http://abduzeedo.com.
It uses a dark cholor scheme along with a colorful header, similar to the current version of kriesi.at, since people always tell me how much they like this combination
The theme uses some of the code snippets I created for my WordPress Tutorials as well as for my jQuery tutorials.
Some of the features that are included:
- PSD File for easy customization
- Widget ready sidebar and footer
- Multi Level CSS Drop Down Menu (improved with jQuery) for your pages
- Smooth scrooling between anchor links (jQuery)
- Extendable footer (jQuery)
- Works in all major Browsers (IE6, IE7 , Safari, Firefox2, Firefox3, Opera, Google Chrome)
- Demo Version here
Since I put quite some time and effort into the creation of this theme, I decided to sell it for the low fee of 15$ at themeforest.net which recently opened the doors.Â Hope you like the theme and consider buying it
I wasn’t able to write a lot during the last weeks: since I know I am going to another vacation trip – and especially since my clients know this- I am flooded with last minute work which has to be done. So there wont be any updates here until 25th August, when I safely arrive at Vienna Airport again. Well tanned from the Portuguese sun and relaxed hopefully =)
When I am back I will release my first WordPress Theme which is nearly ready now, so stay tuned!
Best Regards to all of you
Well, most of the time I give advice in some form or another, be it trough my tutorials or my comments, but today I would like to hear some advice from you. As you can see in the picture beside, my companion for the last 2 years, my MacBook, has suffered severe damage from the heavy use in this time.
I dally with the idea of buying a new notebook for some time now, cause the look of the macbook is far from stylish ever since the white chassis turned into dirty dark yellow. Ok, I am not that kind of a brag that I would throw away my laptop only because of its looks, but the hard drive I bought 2 years ago is far to small, the RAM is too little, and the screen is to tiny for long lasting Photoshop works.
The chassis cracked now for the second time (the first time apple customer service fixed it but I didn’t extend for the 3-year Apple Care plan) and I think its time to get something better. I like to work with Apples OSX but I don’t really care which operating system I use, due to the fact that I was working on Windows XP for several years before.
After browsing tons of sites with windows laptops I startet to like the Idea of bying a MacBook again, this time the Pro version of course. Appart from the neat look, they seem to fit my needs in a much better way than other companys notebooks.
What I want to know from you is:
Do MacBook Pros discolour and fall apart as well as the normal versions after 2 years?
Would you recommend buying one or something totally different?
Would be glad to hear some advice
