If you are interested in learning more about using RSS feeds with wordpress and would like to learn the basics of creating a plugin, then today is the day for you!
With the release of Wordpress 2.7 came some awesome new features to the comment section, including threaded comments. Today we will pick up where we left off in Day 8 of the series and continue tweaking our custom comments.php file to perfection. Not only will we cover threaded comments, but how to paginate comments as well! It’s a screencast full of comment enhancements and features, so get ready and let’s do this!
Today it’s all about the comments! So many of you have been requesting that we cover the comments.php page, so today we will do just that. Throughout this and the next series we will cover all the ins and outs of dealing with comments in Wordpress, including gravatars and threaded comments. This is one of the longer screencasts we have done so get comfortable, start your servers, and lets start day 8!
Welcome to Wordpress for Designers Day 7! We’re moving right along with our custom Wordpress theme today and will be creating a few more files from scratch.
