Create a Child Theme the Easy way

When modifying your WordPress website, it is imperative that you make you modifications on a Child Theme.  For non-gurus like me, there IS an easy way!

How to Create a Child Theme the Easy Way

To copy templates to your new Child Theme, see an example in Adding a Full Width Page to 2013 Theme




Easy demo content – Lorem Ipsum!

This wee plugin is so effective – any time you begin a new site, it can look so bland with just ‘Hello World’ content.  Using ‘Lorem Shortcode’ plugin, you can have easy auto-generated content in paragraphs with one simple shortcode.

There are simple extra parameters that can be added too, and it works well in a sidebar widget.

Get the plugin here http://wordpress.org/plugins/lorem-shortcode/

Recent Posts Extended – Remove 'Permalink to'

The ‘Recent Posts Extended’ WordPress Plugin widget by default prepends the words ‘Permalink to’ on every sidebar widget link, effectively diluting SEO strength in the title attribute.

To remove this;

Open – recent-posts-widget-extended/includes/widget-recent-posts-extended.php

Find the below section in two places…

 <a href=”<?php the_permalink(); ?>” title=”<?php printf(esc_attr__(‘Permalink to %s’, ‘rpwe’), the_title_attribute(‘echo=0’)); ?>” rel=”bookmark”>

Remove the words permalink to from both sections as shown below.

 <a href=”<?php the_permalink(); ?>” title=”<?php printf(esc_attr__(‘%s’, ‘rpwe’), the_title_attribute(‘echo=0’)); ?>” rel=”bookmark”>

This will remove the offending wording and SEO irritation 🙂
