Friday, December 23rd, 2016

Sometimes the WooCommerce out of stock message isn’t quite appropriate. Here’s a couple of ways to change that message.

Searching custom meta on custom post types

Saturday, November 26th, 2016

Ever needed to search for a post by something other than the title or post content? If you’ve built a website with custom post types that have additional fields, it’s a good chance that admins will need to search on your custom meta.

Load Gravity Forms stylesheets in page head

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Gravity Forms normally loads its stylesheets in the page head, where they belong. It does that only on pages which have forms, which is nice. If you use a widget to host your form, however, it can’t detect that until it renders the widget… too late to load the stylesheets in the head. At that point, it just pulls them directly into the page body.

Disable scroll wheel on Events Manager location maps

Saturday, August 15th, 2015

WordPress 4.1 brings with it the twentyfifteen theme, which I find to be a rather nice blog theme. Unfortunately, it adds a new wrinkle to any tables on your website — often breaking them! Here’s the simple fix.

Sort WooCommerce products first in search results

Thursday, December 18th, 2014

When shoppers search a WordPress website, you want them to find products first before listing any articles and pages. And it’s surprisingly easy to achieve, with a simple filter hook.

Use Autoptimize effectively

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Keeping your WordPress website fast can become pretty tricky once you start installing plugins and off-the-shelf themes. Everything seems to want to load at least one CSS stylesheet, and sometimes a dozen or more JavaScript script files. Some also inject great chunks of CSS and JavaScript into every page. Luckily, there’s the handy Autoptimize plugin to help you sort all of that out.

Move Gravity Forms field labels above input fields

Saturday, July 19th, 2014

Gravity Forms has some nice compound fields to make it easy to accept things like names, addresses, and credit card details. One annoying thing it does, though, is put the labels for the input fields below them instead of above them. Here’s how to move Gravity Forms field labels above input fields where most people would expect them to be.
