when developing for WordPress sometimes you need to code a bit or change some features in WordPress.  Hacking WordPress means using it not as a regular user with the obvious features, but to code PHP or change CSS when needed.

here are some cool and very helpful hacks:

Use pagination instead of “Next” and “Previous” Page Links

replace the next and previous links at the bottom of the loop with real php pagination.

Remove <P> for paragraph from content, excerpt or comments

use remove_filter when the loop arrives to one of these parts:

add this to your theme file: functions.php

remove_filter (‘comment_text’, ‘wpautop’);

remove_filter (‘the_content’, ‘wpautop’);

remove_filter (‘the_excerpt’, ‘wpautop’);

Use Custom page as home

Create a new page, go to setting -> reading ->

and for “Front page displays” choose “A static page” and choose a page for your home.
