Plugin updated: My Favorite Posts

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)

WordPress Tutorial: Simple Breadcrumb Navigation

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 =)

Premium WordPress Theme: Aurora Borealis

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
  • Valid HTML /CSS, along with Javascript that degrades gracefully if turned of
  • 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
