Over the last few months there has been a huge amount of focus on the security of the WordPress, where the platform has been specifically targeted by hackers. Having a secure website is not only important for the webmaster or the owner but for the user of the site too.
In this weeks tutorial I am going to teach you how to create a shortcode to display your posts in WordPress. This technique is useful as it allows you to display the latest posts in the content of your pages or posts, I even use this to display the posts on the homepage of this site. Lets get stuck in.
Having great typography is a very important element for any website, not only does it create great visual impact, it can also make the Website easier to use and aids accessibility. In the early days of the web you were limited to fonts that people had installed on their computer. Nowadays there is an endless choice of fonts that can be added to your website thanks to Webfont services, such as Google Fonts or Typekit. Let show you how to add Google Fonts to your WordPress website.
When I sit down to write a blog post, I often do this at a time when other people are sat in front of the TV or sleeping. I choose this time as I can write without any distractions. If I was to hit publish to make the post live at this time, sending the usual notifications to social media sites to announce that a new post is available, the chances of my post being read would be very small.
WordPress has a great feature that allows you to publish your post at a time to suit you and your readers. I am based in the UK so I would publish my post in the morning around 10am. If you were in the United States, 10 am GMT would result in most people missing the notificatio as they would be sleeping. Yes, they may stumble across it later, but that would be leaving it to chance. So having the ability to schedule the post for an optimum time and help drive the greatest amount of traffic can be a great addition to your blog.
Let me show you how to schedule your post in WordPress using a very simple process.
If you have been a avid user of WordPress then you will no doubt be familiar with the login screen in the admin area. In the majority of sites that use WordPress, you will often see the default logo when you login to edit your site. If you choose to customise your login screen with your own site logo, then this can bring a personal touch to the site, and if you open the site up to other users this can provide some familiarity to the login screen and provide a sense of security when you login. Let me show you how to customise the login logo?
