How do I use a plugin to put this inside the body of every page on my WP site, for facebook integration. (Yes, I know other plugins can do it, but I want to do it myself.) Facebook recommends as close to the top of the lead body tag as possible. Thanks! <script>(function(d, s, id) […]

comment_email hook doesn't seem to work for comment editor field

I am building a plugin that allows users to PPK encrypt their users’ IP/email data. Thus, IP/email data is set to dummy values in the comments table and encrypted values are stored in corresponding meta fields.

How can I hook into creating a new post and execute wp_die(), before the post is inserted into the database?

Info about wp_die from codex: Kill WordPress execution and display HTML message with error message. A call to this function complements the die() PHP function.

Removing labels and <br> tag on WordPress's default login form

I am customizing the login form to more closely resemble Google’s minimalist form, which has no form labels, and instead relies on placeholders to prompt users for the input fields. The form starts out looking like this: <p> <label for=”user_login”>Username<br /> <input type=”text” name=”log” id=”user_login” class=”input” value=”” size=”20″ /></label> </p> WordPress has no method to […]

Am I using the right hook for removing quicktags on the admin TinyMCE?

This is more of an excercise than something for a client. Anyway, I’m trying to disable the quicktags when you’re on the dashboard and you click on Comments > Edit Comment.
