A Couple of Fresh Tricks

If there was only one wish for my home page, that was to have a plugin showing the codes in a good shape. Simple Google searches navigated me to this great post: 15 WordPress Plugins for Displaying Code Snippets.

Then I chose Google Syntax Highlighter for WordPress among those plugins. If you want to see a living example, check the end of the post.

That is pretty much what I wanted when I share my codes here.

Then I realized that my site does not include a link to the home. You could navigate by clicking the title etc. but that is not enough. I was surprised that we can’t do it with the native ways of WordPress because it was so easy in Joomla which I used for a while ages ago… It was easy to manage menu items because you could declare a “menu type” simply.

Anyway, it wasn’t too hard to find the trick here either. Adding this little code snippet below to functions.php gets us what we need:

function home_page_menu_args( $args ) {
$args['show_home'] = true;
return $args;
}
add_filter( 'wp_page_menu_args', 'home_page_menu_args' );
