Link Youtube Channel In WordPress Site

I am trying to develop a site where people can find and view videos of my activities from my youtube channel. I am quite new to wordpress but I decided to use it to achieve this purpose.

WordPress is creating a lot of draft posts

My WordPress install (with the following plugins) randomly creates Draft posts whenever I load the posts page. Is there a way to find out which plugin is doing this (aside from deactivating)?

Is it possible to sync nav menus across multiple wordpress sites?

I was asked by a customer about the possibility to put a menu from a WP installation into another WP, whereas are independent installations, each one for its domain. The point is: I developed a website in WP (using Woocommerce) and months after we developed a blog, with another layout structure but keeping the visual ID for the brand. Now, she wants to put the main menu from her main website into the blog, and all the options on that menu needs to be dynamic, so, if she decides to…

Read more link isn’t working with custom query

Trying to show the latest post with a featured tag. The query is working fine but it always shows all the content.. not the content before the more link which is all I want. Here is my code. $query = new WP_Query(‘numberposts=1&orderby=date&tag=featured’); // The loop! if ( $query->have_posts() ) : while ( $query->have_posts() ) : $query->the_post(); ?> <h1><a href= »<?php the_permalink() ?> » rel= »bookmark » title= »Link to <?php the_title_attribute(); ?> »><?php the_title(); ?></a></h1> <div class= »post-meta-bar »> <div class= »date-meta »>By <?php the_author(); ?> on <?php the_time(‘j F Y’) ?></div> <div class= »comment-meta »><a href= »<?php the_permalink() ?>#comments » rel= »bookmark » title= »Link to…

Removing filter dropdown in posts table (in this case Yoast SEO)

I don’t need Yoast SEO meta box for one post type so I removed it with remove_meta_box(). Removed unneeded columns in post table by unsetting columns with manage_edit-custom_post_columns, but drop down is still left. Is there way to remove it? Of course it is not that hard to do with jQuery, but maybe there is filter or something built in WP? Source: https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/feeds

Sorting Custom Posts on Archive page with pagination

I’ve got custom taxonomy archive pages with a drop down list that allows users to re-order/sort the posts. It basically waits for the user to select from the drop down then uses array_merge( $wp_query->query….. to create a new query and re-sort the posts. This works fine. I also use wp-pagination to display numbered pagination. This also works fine. The problem is, when a user re-sorts the list, and then clicks on the pagination to go to page 2 the new sort is lost and reverts back to the original. I…

Adding theme support for a custom header image

I’m using add_theme_support( ‘custom-header’, $defaults ); to support custom header images in my theme. The $defaults are described in the Custom Headers article $defaults = array( ‘default-image’ =>  », ‘random-default’ => false, ‘width’ => 0, ‘height’ => 0, ‘flex-height’ => false, ‘flex-width’ => false, ‘default-text-color’ =>  », ‘header-text’ => true, ‘uploads’ => true, ‘wp-head-callback’ =>  », ‘admin-head-callback’ =>  », ‘admin-preview-callback’ =>  », ); There is no explanation in the Codex for the following.
