WP-Cycle is a WordPress image slideshow plugin that uses jQuery. It can link to any post, page or a URL outside of the site. It can be set to any size and has a number of other useful settings. I’ve used this plugin on a number of sites and really like it for it’s ease of use. It does, however, have the limitation of single use and all images added in the settings have to be used.
My most popular article, by far, is How to Add a Custom Tab to a Facebook Fan Page. And one of the questions related to that article that I get asked the most frequently is, “how do I add content to the custom tab?”
The short answer is in order to add content to a custom tab created with FBML, you have to use HTML. If you don’t know any HTML, there isn’t much you can do with the tab.
Almost a year ago I wrote about how a simple gallery could be added to a post or page using the WordPress Gallery Shortcode. At the time I found out about it because include and exclude were going to be added to later releases. It is now part of the shortcode.
Last week I used the gallery shortcode for the Halloweeen themes post but I didn’t want to use all of the images in the gallery – the photo of the cupcakes is in the gallery associated with that post but I wanted to exclude it because it isn’t an image of a theme.
I work with the Thesis theme for WordPress quite a bit but I don’t think I’ve written about it before. It took me a bit to figure out how to add a post to static front page so I decided I would document what I learned.
My client wanted a static front page and then for the blog to be on a different page. No problem there – that’s managed by a WordPress setting under Settings > Reading. But she also wanted the most recent blog post on this same static page.
