CSS-Tricks #44: Hodgepodge of WordPress Tricks

It’s WordPress Week here at CSS-Tricks, so I wanted to so a WordPress-themed screencast and cover a lot of mini-tips that haven’t made it into previous WordPress screencasts. We cover:

  • Listing categories with a built-in function and building a tabbed navigation from them with “current tab” functionality
  • Numbering comments with a simple incremented PHP variable.
  • Improving WordPress search with a plugin and making better design choices.
  • Live comment previews with JavaScript and/or plugin.
  • Setting better titles for all pages.
  • Setting different backgrounds based on URL.
  • Setting different styling based on the post ID.
