All ajax related videos. Includes discussions on worpdress' ajax calls and localizing scripts as well as all other front or back end functionality that relies on, includes and/or incorporates ajax.
Almost every website has a form. There are many, many form plugins but here we will look into making our own. First we discuss creating forms manually, working with ajax for submissions with no-js backup (these will also be categorized under Ajax) and then we will begin creating classes and custom post types along with an admin interface for creating dynamic forms from the wp admin.
This name is a little obscure, but right now I cannot think of anything better, I'm tired and it's late. Anyway, this category is used to identify front end user interfaces that do things the admin already does. For instance, front end: registration, login, user profile update, post creation and editing, taxonomy creation, etc... .
We will discuss various hooks (actions and filters) that are typically used from day to day. We will discovered some little known ones, and we will explore the wordpress core files so we can discover how they work. We will also reference the wordpress docs with each for more understanding and examples and we will create our own to gain better grasp of their use.
This is a hot topic. Memberships can be troublesome and complicated. We will look into the basic needs of creating a membership site to include looking at post passwords, user roles and capabilities, user meta for storing privilege data, and working with wordpress redirects like auth_redirect and wp_redirect (with these we will also look at avoiding the headers exist error).
Most people do not work with the wordpress network capabilities and it's a mystery to them. We will go through, step by step, all of the aspects behind wp multisite. We will discuss, visually, what it is and how it works, then we will create one, manage it and explore it's possibilities.
The wordpress secret weapon, plugins. One of the reasons why worpdress is so robust and powerful. We'll go through what these are, how they are created and we will be creating hundreds of them, all free, all open source, all wordpress. With almost every tutorial, the demonstrations will be built on the backs of a plugin setup, so this category will not contain lists of all the plugins created, instead, it will specifically group those tutorials that deal with plugin creation and techniques.
The magic behind how wordpress does what it does. We will discuss the infamous loop, custom queries, global query params, what is returned with a query and how you can access all parts of the object. We will go through all the loop methods and terminologies and show you what they do, how they work and how you would access the same information directly.
Worpdress is open source. So, that means there are a lot of dirty people out there who are unfortunately, very smart. They like to study code and waste their time and brainpower on finding ways to exploit it. Hackers can be good, but some fornicate with the dark side. There is a hidden war between these two forces. Anonymous white masks with mustaches vs devious dark side bastards wearing black suites and evil minded thieves misdirecting their ploys against less capable ordinary people. Here we look into best practices in regards to WP safety.
How to make them, theme template files, functions.php, settings pages, style.css, and yatta yatta. We'll also look at how to edit pre made themes. We might go into genesis "framework" although I don't like it at all because its a theme that creates its own api, deviating from that of wordress'. Start working with genesis too much and you will know very little about how wordpress works and if you ever have to work with straight wordpress, you'll find things may be difficult because you're used to a completely different API.
