As part of using Wordpress, and any other part of making a website, for that matter, you acquire reusable parts. As well as discover functions that aren’t shouted about. In this post I’ve shared a few with usage.
With Wordpress there are a lot of ways to the same thing, for good reason, sometimes you can’t do it one way or the other. This can make it tricky to remember how to do it for each instance. At least this is the case for me. I want to use this post to serve as a guide for each method of doing so. I won’t be covering their parameters, just the necessary steps to retrieve an image.
I have only recently looked into using the custom meta boxes that come with Wordpress. I’ve been a fan of Advanced Custom Fields for a long time, so it’s something I’ve never had a great urge to use.I’m going share with you over the course of this post how to get them set up. You’ll learn to add them efficiently, how to add custom CSS, change placement to under the title and finally how to use them in your theme.
A handy feature allowing you to differentiate different post types from others without needing a post type.
