I’ve written a few posts about how to use CSS3 PIE in WordPress and it’s still evolving (first one, most recent one). What I’m using now is shown below: it’s easy, short, and unlike the other two, has never failed to work on occasion.

A great code snippet, works perfectly. Replaces the default […] more syntax with a link and text of your choosing.

I had to do this recently for a client for the first time – not that difficult at all. This post serves as an example.

I used the shortcode method mentioned here.

So in functions.php I added the shortcode like this:

Then in the post I added the title where I wanted it to appear by inserting this shortcode (but remove the spaces on either side) in the main edit window.

The parameters are set in the function, but you could leave those blank and set them in the shortcode as shown in the linked post mentioned before.

Then you’ll need to add the style into your styles.css file, something like this:

Unfortunately this theme doesn’t make it easy to hide the regular title, but you can do that in CSS using body.postid .entry-title h2 { display: none; }. Or, if you add all the posts with large images before the title to a particular category you could do this:

I’m using the AVH Extended Categories plugin to control the display of categories in a new blog, and was having problems getting it to show the hierarchy in a user-friendly way. This code below will do the trick for up to 2 levels of child categories, the background-position is for the bullet image already included in the main list styling. This isn’t really AVH specific, it can be used for any vertical menu, and the class ‘children’ is something WordPress automatically applies to all the subpages of a given parent page.

1st child level:

2nd child level:

Here’s the styled nested menu in action (left sidebar).
