Managing WordPress Taxonomies for Better Usability

taxonomy

Management of WordPress taxonomies and their uses have been discussed here.

WordPress offers a wonderful platform with amazing custom services.

This most popular CMS is used by the majority of users.

For the folks who are interested in creating custom posts, with this article you will be able to understand and deploy custom archive taxonomies.

Whether you want to create a custom taxonomy or you want to customize an existing one, here you will surely get an effective solution.

Taxonomy: A Foreword

The taxonomy refers to a content type in WordPress that is ideal for organizing the content, which possesses some other content type.

The most common taxonomies that most of you probably would be familiar with are Categories and Tags.

It is assumed that you are aware of both categories and tags in WordPress, these two integral taxonomies with hierarchical and non-hierarchical orientation respectively. Hierarchical Taxonomy means that it possesses a hierarchical structure with parent-child relationships and Non-hierarchical Taxonomy doesn’t exhibit any such relationship.

What WordPress does is, it creates an automated archive for each tag, category and custom taxonomy that follows a reverse chronological order and generates a list of associated posts. The site that features posts that are kept well organized with proper tags and categories are comparatively easier to maintain than it is to with custom posts and custom taxonomies.

In WP, the display for each archive is defined in template files, thus while moving towards customization, the very first step is to determine which template file is associated with your target.

How To Create Custom Taxonomies?

There are several ways of creating custom taxonomies, however, the most preferred one is by deploying a suitable plugin. There is no dearth of WP plugins, you can conveniently find an efficient plugin to accomplish the job with a greater proficiency.

However, while implementing any other method, it is recommended to create a new plugin for the cause instead of inserting the appropriate chunk of code to the functions.php file. Because, it will make the method less complex and will offer the added advantage in the future by making the created custom taxonomy easily available.

For creating a plugin, simply add the below mentioned line of code at the top of the text file boasting appropriate code.

/* Plugin name: Custom Taxonomy */

Here is the code snippet for a plugin that has been created to support custom taxonomy, which is named as “fruits”.

_x( 'TastyFruits', 'Taxonomy General Name', 'text_domain' ),
'singular_name' => _x( 'TastyFruit', 'Taxonomy Singular Name', 'text_domain' ),
'menu_name' => __( 'Taxonomy', 'text_domain' ),
'all_Fruits' => __( 'All Fruits', 'text_domain' ),
'parent_Fruit' => __( 'Parent Fruit', 'text_domain' ),
'parent_Fruit_colon' => __( 'Parent Fruit:', 'text_domain' ),
'new_Fruit_name' => __( 'New Fruit name', 'text_domain' ),
'add_new_Fruit' => __( 'Add new Fruit', 'text_domain' ),
'edit_Fruit' => __( 'Edit Fruit', 'text_domain' ),
'update_Fruit' => __( 'Update Fruit', 'text_domain' ),
'separate_Fruits_with_commas' => __( 'Separate Fruits with commas', 'text_domain' ),
'search_Fruits' => __( 'Search Fruits', 'text_domain' ),
'add_or_remove_Fruits' => __( 'Add or remove Fruits', 'text_domain' ),
'choose_from_most_used' => __( 'Choose from the most used Fruits', 'text_domain' ),
'not_found' => __( 'Not Found', 'text_domain' ),
);
$args = array(
'labels' => $labels,
'hierarchical' => false,
'public' => true,
'show_ui' => true,
'show_admin_column' => true,
'show_in_nav_menus' => true,
'show_tagcloud' => false,
);
register_taxonomy( 'tastyfruit', array( 'post' ), $args );

}

add_action( 'init', 'slug_fruits_tax', 0 );

}
?>

How To Customize Taxonomy Archives?

For those who are interested in using WP as a CMS and not just as a blogging tool, they often need to customize the built-in functions of WP, which is easily feasible with custom taxonomies.

By default, the WordPress implements the WP_Query class to automatically fetch the posts for the viewers while considering the page on which they are. However, this query can be tweaked for adding custom post types to tag or category archives, for this what you can do is, integrate the pre_get_posts filter.

Now, let’s see how it works.

The filter helps tweak the query when it is called before any post has been fetched by the WP. You can create arguments (“post” as a regular post and “latest” as a custom post type) to be passed in the WP_Query. By following the below mentioned code.

Code Snippet:

array(
‘post’,
‘latest’
)
);
?>

Here, for passing the changed post_type arguments we will need to implement the class method set(). As this method enables one to alter the arguments while the class has been already created.

Code Snippet:

is_category() && $query->is_main_query() ) {
$query->set( 'post_type',
array(
'post',
'latest'
)
);
}

return $query;

}
?>

By following the aforementioned guide thoroughly, you will be able to efficiently customize desired taxonomies archives in WordPress.

How to Create a WordPress Plugin guide for plugin developers

In this article, we will tell you how to create a WordPress plugin in simple steps.

The most important reason why people prefer WordPress over any other platform is its unlimited useful plugins collection.

Plugins are nothing but PHP code and what you can do with a plugin vary from code to code.

You can design plugins starting from simple modifications like changing colors of header and footer to working as functional modules for important features related to monetary transactions, auto-responding and likewise.

Once you know how to create a WordPress plugin, the possibilities become limitless.

Who Needs To Know How To Create A WordPress Plugin?
There are basically three types of users in WordPress. The first category of people is those who have no knowledge of PHP and depend on plugins already available to increase the functionalities of the websites. The second category of people are those who know PHP, and whenever they need to modify something that cannot be achieved through plugins, they modify the files present in the editor like functions.php, sidebar.php, header.php and likewise. They do not bother about creating a plugin.

It is the third category of people who need to know how to create a WordPress plugin. These people are advanced users like web developers who want to have unique functionalities and features on the websites that are not achievable through ready-made plugins. For example, a person is creating a social networking site, and he needs to have plugins to let users chat and become friends and send a request and likewise. They write codes for those plugins and integrate them on the website.

Apart from that, there are web developers who want to develop plugins to sell in the market so that people download them and they get money from WordPress in case it is free or directly from the users in case it is a premium plugin.

How To Create A WordPress Plugin From Scratch?
Step 1. Getting Started In A Proper Format
Open your file manager from cPanel and head to wp-content/plugins. Create a folder inside it with the name with which you want to name your plugin. Once the folder is created, create a file with the same name as the folder which is also the name of the plugin you are going to create and keep the extension of the file as .php. There is a specific standard format you need to follow to create a plugin. So, open the file and write the following.

Step 2. Structure Of A Plugin

Keep the plugin name same as the folder name, and you can change other details as you wish. As a matter of fact, this is the file where you have to write the code to make the plugin do whatever you want to. If you are going to make a plugin with complex functionalities, it is better to create multiple modules in different files and folders and integrate them into the main file. This will help in easy debugging and adding more modules to the plugins in future.

Most of the plugins have a user interface for changing the settings. If you are planning to create a plugin of that type, you need to have CSS and JavaScript folder to keep the corresponding files in the right place without messing up everything. Finally, whatever class or function you create, name them in a meaningful way so that later you can understand what is for what. Even better practice would be comments and documentation.

Step 3. Adding Your Code

Now, it is up to you to add your code in the files as per requirement and have the main file from where everything will be called as and when required. For example, you want to create a WordPress Plugin for showing the number of views in individual posts. The basic part would consist of recording the page views and displaying the page views. Additionally, you can have a function to display posts according to their page views in a list form.

The first step is to write the proper mandatory format.
The second step is to write a function to record the page views.

Note you can write the function in the same file that has the name of the plugin. Insert the following code at the end of the previous section.

You need to call the function you created for it to execute. As you can see, the created function is called through the code add_action(“”, “”)

The third step is to write a function to retrieve the page views.

The fourth step is to write a function to show the page views.

Additionally, you have to insert this line to make sure that WordPress does not throw an error message when the plugin is disabled.

Step 4. Precautionary Measures

Safety is always the priority when you create something on the web. Coming specifically to a plugin, all plugins use internal and external data to run the code and act the way they are supposed to. But once the work is done or the user deletes the plugin, it leaves behind a lot of raw data which are easy for the hackers to get access to. Hence, the vulnerability of the website increases massively. Therefore, when you create a plugin, you have to make sure that, you clean the data as soon as your plugin gets delete.

i. register_activation_hook(x,y)

This method is to be used when you are calling a function. X stands for the file main from where the function is called, and Y stands for the function name. Use it while calling a function for execution. This also helps a developer to know the version of the plugin and WordPress the users is having who installed the plugin.

ii. register_deactivatioon_hook(x,y)

Once the execution of the function is over, use this method to close the function. This ensures that the function is not accessible from outside.

iii register_uninstall_hook()

This function makes sure that when a user deletes your plugin, all the data used while the plugin was activated get deleted automatically. It ensures that hackers cannot get any trace of critical data even when they make an entry through a backdoor.Once you are done coding, head over to admin dashboard and then to Plugins from the left menu and click on Installed Plugins. In the new screen, you will find your plugin, and you can activate that to see how it is functioning.

WordPress post pagination without plugin has been explained in this case for users

post-navigation-without-plugin

Pagination in WordPress post without plugin has been explained in this article

Many users and specifically developers do not want to have extra additional plugins loaded up into their website for each and every function and hence take help of coding in that case.

Simple codes which can do functionality and no need of plugins in this case lead us to believe that one can easily add them and get rid of the extra plugins which cause slow down of the website since they load up in either header or footer.

Lesser plugins would mean that conflicting plugins would also result less and one would have to worry less about plugin updates in future as well.

Here are 2 methods which are simple codes given for someone to have pagination in WordPress post simply and easily.

WordPress post pagination without plugin method 1 using functions.php

if ( ! function_exists( 'post_pagination' ) ) :
   function post_pagination() {
     global $wp_query;
     $pager = 999999999; // need an unlikely integer
 
        echo paginate_links( array(
             'base' => str_replace( $pager, '%#%', esc_url( get_pagenum_link( $pager ) ) ),
             'format' => '?paged=%#%',
             'current' => max( 1, get_query_var('paged') ),
             'total' => $wp_query->max_num_pages
        ) );
   }
endif;

One needs to use the function now wherever or in whichever template they want to display:


Number of posts can be selected from Settings>readings>Select number of posts to show. And thus the number of posts would be displayed as per your choice.

2nd method we are explaining for WordPress post pagination without plugin is for custom post types:

$paged = (get_query_var('paged')) ? get_query_var('paged') : 1;
 
query_posts(array(
    'post_type' => 'post', // You can add a custom post type if you like
    'paged' => $paged,
    'posts_per_page' => 10 // limit of posts
));
 
if ( have_posts() ) :  while ( have_posts() ) : the_post();
 
     // post content goes here...
 
 endwhile;
 
    post_pagination();
 
 else :
 
// no posts found message goes here...
 
 endif;

Of course one would need to still stylize them once they have been displayed.

Some other developer also has written their code along with styles hope that one works for you so we will list it as method number 3 to display WordPress post pagination without plugin:

Add the following in functions.php file:

function pagination($pages = '', $range = 4)

     $showitems = ($range * 2)+1; 
 
     global $paged;
     if(empty($paged)) $paged = 1;
 
     if($pages == '')
     {
         global $wp_query;
         $pages = $wp_query->max_num_pages;
         if(!$pages)
         {
             $pages = 1;
         }
     }  
 
     if(1 != $pages)
     {
         echo "

\n";
     }
}

And then use this code in Style.css of your theme file:

.pagination {
clear:both;
padding:20px 0;
position:relative;
font-size:11px;
line-height:13px;
}
 
.pagination span, .pagination a {
display:block;
float:left;
margin: 2px 2px 2px 0;
padding:6px 9px 5px 9px;
text-decoration:none;
width:auto;
color:#fff;
background: #555;
}
 
.pagination a:hover{
color:#fff;
background: #3279BB;
}
 
.pagination .current{
padding:6px 9px 5px 9px;
background: #3279BB;
color:#fff;
}

Finally calling the pagination plugin in whichever template you want to use it:

max_num_pages);
} ?>

Hope this is useful for users.

In case one wants they can use WordPress pagination plugins as well.
