Interesting Facts And Tips for WordPress!

You Are Here

WordPress is the most popular blogging platform. Even I am using wordpress for all my blogging sites. Today I am listing here some interesting facts and tips about wordpress. I hope all tips will be helpful for you. WordPress has been discussed these days a way too much because of its user experience, today going to give some tips on how we can increase end user usability of our blog (Very help full for guest posting enabled blogs).

There is nothing much complicated because every thing is most things could be done in functions.php file (a little bit of modifications).

Set the auto save interval time

This feature is one of the coolest feature of WordPress, because it help us in the case we got our browser crashed or something happen like this. (We may lost all of our article). But if auto save is enabled you’ve no need to worry about. By default wordpress auto save is enabled is activated and work very often which may cause speed issue, you can set auto save interval on your own.

Note :- This code is needed to be added in wp-confip.php

define('AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL', 600);
// 60 * 10, auto-saves every 5 minutes

Admin Bar

In latest wordpress version it comes with admin bar enabled. Some people don’t like it, you can remove it by putting this online line code in functions.php

add_filter( 'show_admin_bar', '__return_false' );

Disable Auto Save!

I don’t like to disable this feature, but different people have different choices so you can disable this feature by adding following code to functions.php

function no_autosave() {
  wp_deregister_script('autosave');
}

add_action( 'wp_print_scripts', 'no_autosave' );

Post versions!

I personally like this feature, because when we write posts we are doing too many errors and while fixing them in later time, it can create such problems which are already fixed in older version. So we can simply re-enable the older version to copy and paste the content. But you if you want to limit or disable this feature, add following code to functions.php

define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', 5); // Maximum 3 revisions per post
define('WP_POST_REVISIONS', false); // Disable revisions

Automatically Empty the trash

I think I like to enable this feature, because I don’t want to waste my time doing same thing twice so it would be better to get it done by one click instead of two. It would not be recommended for those who don’t want to deleted their content permanently, because once its deleted from trash its kicked from the database, so make sure to take a right choice.

Add the following pies of code in wp-config.php and you are done.

define('EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS', 5 ); // Empty trash every 2 days

Disable the Visual Editor in WordPress

If you are good with coding, then it might not be good to keep visual editor because it might effect your codes while coverting to Visual editor, so designers are recommended to remove visual editor. To disable this feature complete from your blog/site you can add following filer.

add_filter('user_can_richedit' , create_function('' , 'return false;') , 50);

  • I wouldn’t remove the visual editor as sometimes I need that for some allignment. Visual editor takes less time to edit.
    And there is a checkbox to enable or disable the admin bar also. No need to alter the codes.
