A 404 Not Found is generated when a user trying to access a page that doesn’t exists or if a user finds an old page that still is indexed on search engines (broken or dead link). So instead of displaying a 404 page or message you can redirect with a 301 moved permanently to homepage.

Thickbox is as jQuery plugin that WordPress use as it’s main popup window or modal view. It’s already built-in in WordPress so why not use that in front end. No need to download or import any extra files.

In WordPress 2.9 custom post type was introduced, that opened a new world for many WordPress developers. I’ve come across a painful issue when it comes to removing the slug and not destroying the rewrite rules for other post types. This only concerns those who are using %postname% as permalink structure and want to add a custom post type so that the urls for them are in the same way as normal posts and pages: http://siteurl/%custom_post_type_title%/.

I was confused for a good hour with this problem, scratching my head. My “Page template” drop down had disappeared. Before start digging to deep in WordPress I made sure the files were still in my theme folder, checked that head comments that define a template not gone missing or had been messed up, even checked file permissions so that the files are readable and that the theme is still active, still no drop down.

WordPress uses a special class for various tree-like structures called a Walker. It’s used for viewing categories, pages, comments. The default class is called Walker_Category and you can extend that with your own walker to customize the output as you would like it.
