Ever wondered how to create beautiful column layouts on your pages, without any custom coding? If you are using a Press Coders theme, you can use shortcodes to do just that!
Shortcodes are small snippets you can copy/paste into your pages and posts that create cool stuff like columns. In this article, we will use our new theme Façade to create some simple columns on our theme pages.
The WordPress admin dashboard can be a scary thing for first-time users.
When we develop sites for clients, sometimes it makes sense to remove some of the UI items they don’t need in the admin area to make it less intimidating. We used many of these admin customizations with WordPress Multisite (or WPMU), to make our customer’s sites more user-friendly. (The code in this article works with normal WP and multisite)
There are basically 3 things you can do easily to start:
Here are some tips and tricks for customizing the WordPress admin by adding code to your child theme’s functions.php file.
If you want to customize your WordPress theme beyond small tweaks, you have to use a child theme.
A child theme is just a folder to keep your changes so you don’t make changes to the original (or parent) theme. The main reason to do this is so that you can update the parent theme without losing any of your customizations.
This subject is covered in a lot of different places, including our theme customization guide, but I wanted to go into more detail here.
Let’s get child themeing!
We are excited to announce our newest theme, Façade!
Façade is a minimal, modern theme, packed with features to make your business look amazing. Showcase your products and portfolios, and make your site look clean and modern.
The best part about Facade is that you can customize every color in the theme with no coding. We’ve stacked the theme customizer so you can change the background image, any color, add your logo, and even change fonts with a couple clicks. Check out this video for a demo:

I love WordPress, but I don’t love everything about it.
I think it’s the best way to build a website for most people, but like any piece of software, it’s not perfect. There are a few things that really chap my hide, and I’d like to air my grievances here.
To be clear, this post is not about complaining, it’s about providing solutions to some common problems. One cool thing about WordPress is that if you don’t like something, you can always contribute your idea for a fix because it’s open source.
Some of these fixes are specific to the way I like to use WordPress, so they might not be a good idea for the core software. So without further adieu [french accent], here we go!

We are currently adding Retina support for our WordPress Themes, so I thought I’d share how we did it so you can too.
Retina and high resolution displays in general are like HD TV, pretty soon everyone will have one. Your website will look really bad on a high-res display if you don’t change a few things. How bad? Zoom in to 200% on your website logo or one of your images, that’s exactly what it looks like on a Retina display (but worse because everything else like text is super crisp in comparison).
Whether you’re new to WordPress, or an old pro, there’s some hidden gems in WordPress that you might not be aware of.
Did you know you can embed a tweet just by pasting the url into your page editor?

To get the status url of a single tweet, go to twitter.com and find the tweet you want to embed. Click on the tweet to expand it, then click the “details” link.
Copy the url in your browser, then paste it into your page/post editor.
