Customizing a Product Page for WooCommerce
WooCommerce by WooThemes is a great plugin for running an ecommerce site. I use it in this site! But, sometimes you need to make modifications to just one product page. This can be true for any site. How to make one page architecturally different from the other pages? It is a lot of work to make a special page type and mark that page to use it. Well, we can us Script Manager to make easy and quick modifications. Here's how!
Create a RSS Feed System
Tired of the default WordPress RSS Feed system bogged down with custom types and really just does not do want you want. After the Woo Theme's ecommerce plugin WooCommerce started putting all the PayPal transactions into the RSS Feed, I decided I needed to change it. This tutorial shows how I did it using the Web API plugin.
Develop your own Web API
In this tutorial, we will explore one way to create a Web API for your website using ScriptManager in WordPress. By creating a new post type and a few lines of PHP, you can add custom Web APIs to your website as well. This allows your site to be more visible to other sites by offering information from your site to be placed on another site. The possibilities are endless!
Tutorial post type
Sometimes you need a new type of post or page to properly categorize your WordPress site's information. For instance, we have many tutorials on using the Script Manger plugin on this site. To make it easy to format the tutorial list and show off the tutorials, we created a new post type called tutorial. This tutorial will show you how.
Smooth Sidebar Scrolling
Have you ever wondered how some sites keep their sidebar scroll smoothly to the top and then stays there no matter where you are in the page? When you tried the same thing, it jitters around as you scroll. To me, it seems like WebKit based browsers do not nicely report the scroll position of the window. How do you get around that? I will try to explain one way to overcome that problem.
Stopping WordPress from auto formating
Have you ever worked real hard on a post, save it, and then noticed that WordPress added p tags to areas you did not want them! When you went back to your article, then the p tags are all removed! That is the problem with the visual editor that comes with WordPress and WordPress itself. We are going to change that behaviour.
FAQ post type
This tutorial shows the making of a FAQ sheet from a list of FAQ post types. I will make use of a great new HTML5 feature to hide and show the FAQ answer. This can also be used on browsers that do not normally support this HTML 5 tag with a simple jQuery script as well.
