How to do a full WordPress backup and restore Update: I recommend using ManageWP to easily backup/restore/migrate your WordPress sites. WordPress is modular but yet very coherent in nature and doing a full backup is not difficult when you know what that you need to backup.

How To: Move Your WordPress Blog to a New Domain Last Friday I announced that our site has moved from Hack WordPress.com to where we are now, at WPHacks.com.

Wordpress | Homo Sapiens Internetus Avec quelques jours de retard voici l’édition des thèmes que j’ai trouvé intéressants ce mois (ce qui ne veux pas forcément dire qu’ils sont sortit ce mois de mai d’ailleurs ;)). Smooth On commence par un thème toujours dans la lignée minimaliste puisqu’on ne va y trouver que très peu d’effets graphique, plugins « qui en mettent plein la vue » ou modules à tous va. Ici c’est du simple : pas de séparation nette en colonne ou section bien définie, tout se trouve d’un tenant sur la page. La colonne centrale est dédié au contenu texte, la sidebar droite aux listes et infos diverses (moteur de recherche, catégories, etc.) et une fine colonne gauche permet d’ajouter les informations annexes comme le nom de l’auteur, la date de parution, … Les pages sont présentées via un menu tout en haut de page, simple mais efficace.

For example, if a post has a custom field of “MyData”, someone might want to only retrieve that particular post. The WordPress Codex has a technique for retrieving posts based on custom fields, which consists of writing your own query and going through the results. The technique in the Codex is good, but I’ve found a re-usable way one can retrieve only posts with certain custom fields. The technique I use makes use of two custom functions placed in a theme’s “functions.php” and a custom WordPress Loop. Let’s get started — The “functions.php” file First, let’s place the two custom functions in the “functions.php” file.
