Sick of images being to large for the content area?

Published

on

Have you ever uploaded an image that might have been a tad bigger than the width of your content area? I know I have! So here is a little CSS fix to handle these situations.

Resize those large images using CSS

Resize those large images using CSS

.post img {
	max-width: 600px;
	height: auto;
	}

That’s it, really simple huh. Just make sure that you change the .post to the correct body class(which starts with a “.“) or body ID(which starts with a “#“).

Would you like a quick explanation?
The CSS is just telling any image inside the class of .post to not be more than 600px wide. By the way make sure you change it to fit the dimension of your content width. And the height attribute is set to auto to automatically change the height to match the new width. 🙂

    Hi there, found you through a re-tweet from Lyndi. I love this fix but I am very code-illiterate. Also, attempting to learn XHTML instead of HTML. Where would this go, in the Stylesheet.php or would it go in the post where the image is

    It seems like it would go in the style sheet as an overall rule, right?

      I probably should have written that. Any way, this CSS should go into either an external stylesheet (like, style.css) or in the page head in between

      <style type="text/css">
      .post img {
      	max-width: 600px;
      	height: auto;
      	}
      </style>

How to: Add a contact me via Skype™ button

Published

on

This little trick is really simple and easy. All you need to do is plug this line of code anywhere you would like to use the text.

<a onclick="return skypeCheck();" href="skype:austin.passy?call">Call me on Skype!</a>

That’s is, pretty simple huh? Just make sure you change skype:austin.passy to your user name!

Want a test? Well, please use the text button, as I was getting to many call’s and hangups: Call me on Skype! Message me on Skype!

Thanks to Shayne for this code!

Update:

I was reminded by Shayne that you will have to add this script into your header.php file:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://download.skype.com/share/skypebuttons/js/skypeCheck.js">
</script>

That way if the user doesn’t have Skype, they will be prompted to download it if they would like :).

How to: show/hide a widget in WordPress with jQuery

In a previous post I talked about how to show/hide a single div html code with a search inside. Today I’d like to show you how I implemented jQuery into my new theme.

Published

on

As seen in the current theme, I am using jQuery to animate the show/hide or as known as the css style display: none;.

Since I am using a custom child theme on my site, and have Hybrid theme as my parent, the widgets or sidebar section is different than may be in your theme. But just apply the the style’s as follows to your theme.

First make sure that your WordPress site is calling jQuery, by plugging in this code into your header.php file above the <?php wp_head(); ?> text:

<?php wp_enqueue_script('jquery'); ?>

Then anywhere above the </head >, plug this code in:

<script type="text/javascript">
function toggleWidgets() {
	$('#primary h3.widget-title').addClass('plus');

	$('#primary h3.widget-title').click(function() {
		$(this).toggleClass('plus').toggleClass('minus').next().toggle(180);
	});

}
$(document).ready(function() {
	toggleWidgets();
}
</script>

That’s it. Pretty simple huh.

So lets go over what the code does.

$('#primary h3.widget-title').addClass('plus');

This line finds all <h3> tags with the class widget-title inside the ID parameter of #primary and adds a class of plus.

Then

$('#primary h3.widget-title').click(function() {
		$(this).toggleClass('plus').toggleClass('minus').next().toggle(180);
	});

Will apply a click function. When the H3 tag is clicked it will remove the class plus and add the class minus.

Then the code that says .next will then toggle the “next” element after the <h3> title.
