I’ve been helping out John Dickinson from Motionworks with his new site that is going to be up soon. Doing that I took advantage of the legacy my-hacks.php file in WordPress architecture. It’s great that Tea Cups With Lids Amber Rings Wholesale Tea Trays Toddler Sleeping Bags you can still use this file. It allows doing cool things with your post and WordPress in general without going into writing a real plugin.
I created some functions for preprocessing the posts before they are being displayed on the site. Most of the work was around the Shadowbox engine. Among other stuff I made the Shadowboxer and Shadowbox Gallery Generator.
Shadowbox Gallery Generator introduced a new tag that can be used to automatically generate code for making a shadowbox gallery. Now all that is required to create a gallery is simply uploading the files to a specyfied directory and then using [jdGallery:Name] to create the gallery.
Both functions work great and I’m sure I’ll use them as well when my new site is up.
