Things You Never Knew You Could Do With WordPress

If you’re reading this article, you’re quite probably already a WordPress user. Are you curious to know exactly what it is that you can do with WordPress that you haven’t figured out yet? In that case, read on. We’re going to make you look at WordPress in a whole different way from now on!

1. SCHEDULE YOUR POSTS AND RELAX!

Bloggers have lives too. Don’t stick to the computer waiting to post all your content. Just schedule them!

  1. Open the Post Editor and the Publishing Panel within it.
  2. Click the Edit button against the Publish Immediately option. You’ll see the options for date and time settings.
  3. Set the exact date and time for your content to be published and click OK.
  4. You’ll see that the ‘Publish‘ button says ‘Schedule‘ now; click this button and you’re all set!
2. SCHEDULE TRASH DUMPS

This one is perfect for you if you tend to get distracted and let WordPress bloat with unnecessary files. Schedule trash dumps using this code snippet in your wp-config.php file. define( ‘EMPTY_TRASH_DAYS’, # ); The # here stands for the number.

3. UP THAT AUTOSAVE FEATURE!

If WordPress didn’t have autosave, you’d be sweating bullets every time you lose your internet connection. Now you can increase or decrease the autosave interval. Open the wp-config.php file and paste this code snippet. define( ‘AUTOSAVE_INTERVAL‘, #); The # here stands for the number of seconds you want to specify as your autosave interval.

4. EMBED RICH MEDIA FORMS INTO WORDPRESS

In love with the rich media content of YouTube, Vimeo or Flickr? Just open your HTML editor and use the oEmbed feature to paste a single URL form. You won’t need any fancy media plugins for this. Open the oEmbed codex page and get rolling!

5. WANT TO MAKE YOUR POSTS STICKY?

Want to stick announcements and competition notices on your blog? You can! Just use the sticky post option.

  1. Open the Post Editor and the Publishing Panel within it.
  2. Under Visibility, click the Edit option
  3. Under Edit, select the Stick This Post To The Front Page option and press OK.

We hope this post will help you make most out of WordPress.
