Just a quick link to the resource i sometimes use when looking for suitable fonts for project – www.sofontes.com.br. It is sure violates some, if not all the copyrights for the fonts located there, but the host is in Brazil, and you know they don’t really bother…
Let’s say you slice a website and need a nicely looking block in a sidebar with one recent post from certain category. Like in case with this one below: Daily Style Quote.
Logically following you need to run “the loop” and ask WordPress for just one post from just this particular category.
Here we go:
<div id="dailyStyleQuote"> <div id="quoteText"> <?php query_posts('category_name=Daily Style Quote&posts_per_page=1'); ?> <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); the_content(''); ?> </div> <div id="quoteBottom"> <?php the_time('l, F j, Y'); ?> <?php $category_id = get_cat_ID( 'Daily Style Quote' ); $category_link = get_category_link( $category_id ); ?> <a href="<?php echo $category_link; ?>">archive</a> </div> <?php endwhile; ?> </div>
Got myself puzzled for a bit while slicing a WordPress theme this weekend on how to get a permalink to a certain page in WordPress template, given that you know what’s page title. Use this:
<?php echo get_permalink(get_page_by_title("Page title here")->ID); ?>
So now in your template you can use like this:
<a href="<?php echo get_permalink(get_page_by_title("About")->ID); ?>">About</a>
Using WordPress as a content management system (CMS) for a web site is a great idea. You get both – static content via Pages and blog entries via Posts. However one may ask – how do you put it all together, given that some sites require drop-down menus?
