How Shortcodes Can Add More Life to WordPress Themes

WordPress Shortcodes DNA

Ask n number of webmasters on how would they like to have a website that is scalable and let’s them make alterations on the move, and you will notice all of them nodding with affirmation. Every website owners finds the prospect of them being handed over a free rein over the customization of their website very inviting, and understandably so. The unrestrained capability to add personalized content to web pages is what serves to be the major motivation for webmasters who like to take things in their hands and glide past the defaults features which may not exactly be to their liking.

At times, you may wish to display a Google plus widget here or embed a piece of content to your post there. The question is, and that’s the only question – How can you achieve that in WordPress? The answer lies in the WordPress shortcodes. Shortcodes, in their bare bones, are tiny snippets of code that give you a remarkable customization capability to proactively make functional modifications to your website as you want, when you want. On this date, a truckload of WordPress plugins make use of these shortcodes in order to add some extra bit of functionality to the respective WordPress website.

The WordPress shortcodes forayed with the WordPress 2.5 version, and since then, have caught the fancy of the web development community in a pretty dominating fashion. Customizing the websites for certain hard-to-integrate features or altering them right from their molecular level is not an unachievable task anymore. The WP shortcodes manage to lace you with a capability to tweak a feature or add a new one with short bursts of code that are easy to write and easier to understand.

Where Can You Find Default Shortcodes on Your Site

If you haven’t realized as yet, your site’s theme may be containing some really handy shortcodes. We are essentially talking about the shortcode you are likely to find in the functions.php file of your theme. As a coder, you may never have known about functions.php since WordPress has a suite of features that do not compel you to dig deep into the technical side of things. However, if you are reading about shortcodes, I’d say it’s obvious that you have had your stint with functions.php. But if even then you find it hard to pinpoint the shortcode in the file, it is fairly simple. The shortcode you are looking for looks like the following code:

Starting With The Most Basic Shortcode

To begin with, you need to know that WordPress offers few default shortcodes and they include:

  • Audio shortcodes that allow you to seamlessly embed some audio files.
  • Caption shortcodes to add captions to images.
  • Embed shortcodes that help you add diverse files like videos, audios and more to your blog.
  • Gallery shortcodes to help you arrange images and videos in galleries.
  • Video shortcodes to help you seamlessly embed videos.

Creating a shortcode is a process that begins with creating a callback function that will be called every time a shortcode is in action. That particular function has then to be integrated with a shortcode. Now, the standard procedure dictates that the new code you create should be added to the functions.php file, but when you are adding multiple number of shortcodes, it is recommended that you create an altogether separate file and link it to functions.php.

Shortcode for Widgets

It is a widely believed misconception that shortcodes can only be leveraged for posts on a website, you still have some groundwork left to do. Shortcodes can be used can work perfectly in unsion with the widgets and enhance their functionality. For enhancing the widget feature set using shortcodes, you simply need to open the functions.php file and add the following code:

add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode');

Apart from the widgets, several other parts of WordPress websites work in tandem with the shortcodes and can be easily enhanced. Oyu may want to use them on a non widgetized section of your WordPress website, and so can you. Let’s say the name of your theme is XYZTheme, and you want a shortcode for displaying the contact form in the theme:

echo do_shortcode("[myowntheme_shortcode]"); 

Now, let’s say you want your readers to subscribe to your website so that all your posts are delivered directly to their inbox. Now, instead of writing a piece of message every single time you want your visitors to read it, you can save time by simply writing a shortcode that displays this message through your website:

To Further Enhance the Features, Create Shortcodes with Attributes

Attributes can work remarkably well to bolster the already impressive set of features that Shortcodes lace your website up with. The function created in the afore-mentioned code can further be expanded using attributes:

Wrapping Up

These short bursts of code are evidently resourceful in great measure. While you can use them at will to add some powerful customization capabilities to your site, steer clear of the temptation of using them all the time. There are various default WordPress features that serve the purpose just right and there isn’t any maze of complexity to implementing them. But, when using shortcodes is on the agenda, get more acquainted with them and let customizing your website leap in convenience.

Troubleshooting the Dilemma Associated With @Font-face Inside Media Query

Font Faces Css2

With more and more users getting inclined towards using mobile devices for accessing the web, it makes sense for business entities to pay more focus on building mobile optimized website. Despite of growing mobile device usage, it has been observed that mobile data connections are seemingly weaker to deliver than desktop ones. This is why while downloading custom fonts for your mobile devices you may have experienced that the download time usually take up several seconds.

A viable solution to increase the download speed of custom fonts for your device screens is to use the @font-face rule. However, make sure to apply the rule to only a certain range of device screens using media queries. But sadly, this approach don’t work for browsers such as Firefox 10, IE and lower versions. This post will discuss about the solution to this problem.

Detailed View on the Problem

Since increasing number of consumers prefer mobile device over desktop to access websites, it is becoming essential for web designers to build mobile optimized design. But they also need to focus on balancing the performance while facilitating users with optimal web experience via their mobile devices. Once the website is complete and is accessed via a Smartphone, we often stumble across a white block – that is supposed to have some content. This problem occurs when the custom font applied to the text of the web design doesn’t get loaded properly.

The Solution to @font-face Inside Media Query Problem

Well, as discussed above, a good solution is to use the @font-face rule for applying custom font to only a certain screens using media queries. Let us discuss how to apply the @font-face rule inside a @media query

For this purpose, we’ll have to create two files named as “index.html” and “style.css”. The first file will contain the text with the custom font applied, and the second one will contain the style of the page.

Let’s create an index.html page with the following code:

This is a very basic example with just one paragraph and a link to the stylesheet. Let us now create style.css file with mobile first approach:

As you can see in the code above, the paragraphs in the stylesheet are set to an Arial font, with various fallbacks. What’s more? A font stack is used including some of the most commonly used fonts that are used in the major operating systems. On the basis of CSSFontStack, Arial font is found 99.84% on Windows and 98.74% on Mac. And if the selected fonts are not available, then by default generic sans-serif font is used.

Media query is defined in the second part of style.css. This will help us target the devices screen having at least 980px width. Furthermore, in second part of style.css we have setup the @font-face rule for downloading the custom font, which makes use of Fontspring Bulletproof @Font-Face Syntax. And then, the new font is getting applied to all the paragraphs, which overrides the previously set style.

The discussed solution will seem an appropriate choice to most of you, as it will help apply a custom font only for device screens having a big screen and, are less likely, to have any issue because of a little bandwidth overhead. But, unfortunately the solution is not supported by IE version 10, Firefox 10 and their lower versions. This is because according to CSS2.1 specifications, you cannot use at-rules inside @media. While the last updated version of Internet Explorer does not support this feature, other browsers such as Firefox and Mozilla versions higher than 10th version supports the at-rules feature inside @media. Moreover, as IE version 8 and lower doesn’t understand the media queries concept, so even if Internet Explorer new versions are updated, the problem will still persists for the older versions.

Solving @font-face Inside Media Query Problem in Internet Explorer
There is a solution to applying @font-face rule inside a media query in IE as well, but partially.
Lot of people are not aware of Internet Explorer compatibility problem, and chances are that whenever you come across such problem you’ll try to understand about the problem by using Google as your search engine. Here is an overview of how you can solve the compatibility problem for Internet Explorer 9 and lower versions.

For this first we’ll need to create a separate CSS file, let’s say, fonts.css that contains all the @font-face rules, not inside a media query but rather using a conditional comment. Let us now check the source code of our fonts.css as follows:

Using the above solution the page weight will remain the same like before, for the conditional comment part as well as some major browsers but not Internet Explorer. For Internet Explorer we’ll add some overhead, as we’ll need to download an additional stylesheet. The stylesheet will contain some specific to @font-face rules, and hence, after minimizing the stylesheet, any average file wouldn’t cause the weight to increase over 1-2kb. Now this is acceptable in most of the cases. Below is the code that will help you use the approach using the minified version of the stylesheet:

Although, this is a smart solution but it is incomplete. That’s because, IE10 no longer support conditional comments. And thus, the 10th version of Internet Explorer will ignore the above written code snippet. And so, we still haven’t been able to solve the problem.

Solving the Problem for Internet Explorer 10

Now, for solving the problem of applying @font-face rule inside @media in IE10 let’s use a less-clean approach, as we require a hack. For this let us write a code snippet that will detect IE10, and then test whether the width of the window is greater than or equal to 980px. In case the conditions returns as “true”, fonts.min.css stylesheet will be added to theelement of the page.

Note: Since, the hack is based on JavaScript, make sure that your JS is enabled or else the hack won’t work.

Conclusion

Adding custom fonts help in making your website design look appealing to the visitors’ eyes. And many developers as well as designers are using them. But since, adding custom fonts can bring in huge traffic, it is very important to optimize them for mobile devices. Reading this post, you will come to know about using a mobile first approach for the fonts you’re using in your site having @font-face inside media queries. Also, you will learn about some useful tricks to apply the @font-face rule inside media query in Internet Explorer.
