Now the default twitter widget is nice, but what if you do want to have more control over your twitter widget and how it looks? In this post I want to show how to easily make a custom twitter plugin, using the Twitter JS plugin by Remy Sharp. This JS plugin basically gives all elements we need, such as avatars and timestamps.
Since WordPress is updated to 3.4, many people encounter problems with their figure captions in HTML5 themes. HTML5 themes are nice, but many use the wrong way of implementing figure captions. Also, a lot of websites still advise the wrong way. Today I want to share a working solution that I found.
Some weeks ago, I wanted to add a slider to my wordpress theme. At first, the slider was reading data from custom meta boxes at posts from the wordpress cms, and was linked to posts, but this had reduced flexibility since it was not possible to link a slider to any post, page or item. The solution? Use custom posts or custom content that is used for the slider only. This tutorial describes how to set up custom post types yourself, and to add a jquery slider that uses these custom post types, both in a wordpress environment. It is assumed that you have basic understanding of wordpress and understand html and css well.
