In another article I already wrote about using individual excerpt lengths in BranfordMagazine. This brief tutorial shows you how to use individual excerpts for every post in order to get more control over your content. I use this in the leadarticle of my BranfordMagazine demosite.
BranfordMagazine and also my other themes use the excerpt template tag for auto-shortening texts on the homepage and in other areas. This is nothing spectacular since many themes do it like that. But BranfordMagazine uses the power of WordPress 2.9x to provide a function for individual excerpt lengths. Be aware that this doesn´t work with WP versions prior to 2.9. By default this is used for shorter excerpts in the featured articles section. Of course you can use this technique with any of my premium WordPress themes.
If you setup BranfordMagazine for the first time you need the category IDs to define which categories are displayed e.g on the homepage. This is not very obvious since WordPress version 2.5 anymore. This tutorial shows two simple ways how th figure out the IDs.
Today I´ve launched the new PRiNZ website. I did a complete makeover of the design but as well of the concept. From now on DER PRiNZ will be my pure themes website dealing with everything that is related to my WordPress themes. One can also call it a product and support website.
Although still some older stuff “survived” the makeover it will disappear soon. The decision for this makeover came quite quick and it was not much time to do it. So I decided to do it the WordPress way and use something that already exists. I decided to use the fantastic deNovo WordPress theme by Simon Rimkus of Themeshift. Thanks Simon for this great and flexible theme.
Right from the homepage you have direct access to the most important stuff on this site. The action bar leads you to the download area, to the support forum and to the contact page. On the hamepage itself you can see the latest tutorials. Not many at the moment but I will add more soon.
So I hope you enjoy this new website and if you have any comments just drop me an email.
