Programming

Help me make content for YOU! What do you want to learn?

After months of planning, I will be developing video series (accompanied by written content) about technology and programming. As you’ve seen on my blog, I’ve written a few development tutorials under the Programming category.

They can be beneficial for those that are starting out with development, or those that just would like to learn how to add something to their website. Well, my intention is to take that idea to the next level. Have a visual representation in the form of a video, along with written content explaining the process.

I need you!

This is where YOU come in. I want to create content that’s relevant to you, things that you would like to learn.

It can be things about development, such as WordPress, PHP, jQuery, CSS, and others. It can also be about blogging and tech, for example: How to set up Gmail on a custom domain, the difference between self-hosted WordPress and WordPress.com, and more.

I currently have some topics in the works, but it would be fantastic if I can get your input and know what would you like to see or learn about.

Let me know in the comments below! Thank you :)

WordPress: Setting up featured images

You’ll find that most blogs that use WordPress as their blogging platform use featured images on their posts. Featured images are what you usually see when you share a post on social media (the thumbnails that appear when sharing on Facebook or Google+), related posts widgets and in the post itself.

It’s really simple to add the featured image functionality, if you don’t have it already. You just have to modify one theme file and you’re done.

Open your current theme’s functions.php file

The functions file contains all the snippets necessary to make sure the theme runs correctly and to add any custom modifications to your theme.

Add the next snippet to your functions file

By adding that code, you should have the featured image functionality. When you write a post, you should be able to see the ‘Featured Image’ box to your right. With a prompt to add an image.
