How to Prevent Loading WP-DownloadManager's CSS File

Stop loading WP-Downloads CSS File

If you want to disable the WordPress plugin WP-DownloadManager‘s download-css.css file from being loaded, add the following code to your functions.php file:

remove_action('wp_print_styles', 'downloads_stylesheets');

Alternatively, if you would just like to use your own stylesheet, you can add a file named download-css.css to your theme’s directory, and the plugin will automatically load your stylesheet instead.

Improve Gravity Forms – Gravity Forms Addons Plugin

Gravity Forms is Great. Let’s Make it Better.

To view one pane, the other panes close. What a pane in the ass! :-)

To view one pane, the other panes close. What a pane in the ass! :-)

I really enjoy the Gravity Forms plugin. It’s a great form generator seemingly based on making a Wufoo-style experience for a WordPress form plugin.  It’s super-simple to use and set up, and I’ve set up my website request form using Gravity Forms.

Some little things make a big difference

One thing that has frustrated me about the plugin is that when selecting the type of field to add to the form, I had to click a box to show it, like the image to the right.  I knew that it would be a simple thing to fix…so I did.  Enter the Gravity Forms Addon plugin. Continue reading

Un-Ban Yourself from WHMCS Administration

Is your IP banned from your own WHMCS?

Who can remember all their passwords all the time? I have a password manager, and I still don’t get it right.  I use the WHMCS software to manage client hosting and such, and so sometimes I get locked out of my own system because I’ve tried too many times to log in!

Here’s how to un-ban yourself:

Add Canonical Tags to Shopp Plugin for SEO

I am building a store using the Shopp plugin, and I noticed that there are possibilities for duplicate content issues:

  • A product can be accessed both by /shop/{productID} and /shop/{product-slug}
  • A tag can be accessed using /shop/?shopp_tag={tag-uri} and /shop/tag/{tag-slug}
  • A tag can be accessed using /shop/?shopp_category={category-id} and /shop/{category-uri}

Should Google somehow find it’s way into indexing these pages, the value of the identical indexed pages may drop.  Canonical tags aim to remedy this situation, and are implemented by the hugely popular and awesome All in One SEO Pack plugin (see my other SEO tips regarding AIOSEO Pack plugin).

The Shopp plugin does not feature canonical tag support, so here’s a modification you can make that will add support for it without changing any core files in All in One SEO Pack, or in Shopp. Continue reading

Strip Extra ImageScaler Attribute from Plugin-Generated Code

I am using the ImageScaler plugin for WordPress on a project, and I like what it does, but it adds a non-standards-compliant attribute to images, such as:

<img class="" src="http://www.example.com/imagescaler/generated-image.jpg" alt="Example" width="258" height="234" imagescaler="http://www.example.com/imagescaler/original-image.jpg" />

To strip imagescaler’s imagescaler attribute, add the following into your functions.php file:

add_filter('the_content', 'strip_imagescaler');
function strip_imagescaler($content) {
	$content = preg_replace('/imagescaler="(.*?)".?/s','', $content);
	return $content;
}
