Disable Admin Bar and Hide Preferences. Before you consider removing the admin bar, you should read this. WordPress 3.1 was released earlier today and one of the key features is the admin bar, which allows you to get to your most-used dashboard pages with a single click. However, the admin bar is not for everyone and you can easily hide it by visiting your profile page. You can also disable the admin bar for all users on your site by adding the following code to a plugin or the functions file of your theme: This will disable the admin bar for all users on your site but they will still see the admin bar preferences in their profile.

You can hide the admin bar preferences using: Experiments: Admin Tour with WordPress Pointers [Video] We wrote about feature pointers in WordPress earlier this week and one of the usage scenarios that came into my mind (except introducing new core features after WordPress upgrades) is tours, which is why we created this yet another experiment.

Experiments: Admin Tour with WordPress Pointers [Video]

First we thought of theme options panel tours (for those complex premium themes), then we thought of plugin tours upon plugin activation and finally we thought of a more general WordPress tour. WordPress has evolved a lot throughout the years and saying that WordPress is incredibly easy to use is not fair. Things like custom post types, custom taxonomies, permalinks structures, child themes, shortcodes, page templates, custom fields and other things could be quite confusing, especially to newcomers. We thought it would be nice to create an admin tour, so we did! A HitchHackers guide through WordPress. Wordpress Permalinks on IIS6. Not even permalinks Recently, I had to set up WordPress on an IIS6 machine.

Wordpress Permalinks on IIS6

Yes, WordPress does work on IIS6, believe it not. The only really tricky bit is getting fancy permalinks to work, so that urls looks like instead of P=6.

Changing the wp_mail from address in WordPress without a plugin. One common question I often hear regarding WordPress email configuration is, “How do I change the email address from”

Changing the wp_mail from address in WordPress without a plugin

I suspect that most people are unaware that WordPress has its own function for sending email and that it has a default address that it sends from. If they are aware, most users opt for changing this with a plugin. WordPress has no ability to manage email settings via its admin panel, but that is not to say that you cannot manage the email configuration at all. It actually is pretty flexible.

The second method attaches the uploaded image to the post it was uploaded through. When I use the first method, there is a way to sort the listing for "unattached images" which you can select and then attach to a particular post. In the meantime, does anyone know of a plugin, php script or coding approach to attach, detach and reattach/re-assign images within the Media gallery that WordPress already has built into it? Embeds.

In A Nutshell All you need to do to embed something into a post or page is to post the URL to it into your content area. Make sure that the URL is on its own line and not hyperlinked (clickable when viewing the post). For example: Check out this cool video: That was a cool video. WordPress will automatically turn that into a YouTube embed when the post is viewed. You can also optionally wrap the URL in the [embed] shortcode.
