Swapping menu images to match user's location
So you’ve built yourself a new WordPress blog and decided to use a fancy image-driven navigation menu, but now you’d like that menu to tell visitors where they are. By using a few of WordPress’ built-in functions along with a little CSS and PHP, we can easily make it happen.
You’ll need to have a basic understanding of CSS, HTML and maybe a little PHP to understand how it all comes together.
One database, one user list, two blogs
In a recent project, I found myself having to share user tables between two separate WordPress installations. This is common in multi-lingual websites, but might just come in handy for you as well. I am assuming you already have a WordPress installation in place and are now installing a second one. You’ll need to open your first WordPress installation’s config.php file and copy the database configuration and paste it into the second. This allows both installations to use the same database.
I get blown away by delightfully simple movie
I don’t usually review movies. The reasons are many, but the onus lies mostly on my abhorrent lack of knowledge in the domain, so when I take the time to write an article on a film, you’d better assume it was worth the trouble.
To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I grabbed the Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs Blu-Ray off the aisle of my local rental store. We sat down that night and fired it up on my newly, boxing-day acquired, Sony XBR HDTV.
My first day with Gearbox's newest shooter
I set off to EB Games after work last night to pick up a copy of Borderlands. A curious game I had been hearing about more and more over the last few days as its release date crept closer.
As luck would have it, EB Games had sold all of them, except the PS3 version. Bummer.
All-in-one solutions for your social needs
Where would the internet be without social media? A better place? Some would argue so, but whatever your opinions are on the subject, chances are you still have a Twitter and MySpace account, don’t you? In a recent project, I’ve had to create quite a few links to various social media websites and have come up with a series of WordPress-based snippets you can use in your next project.
