Freaky Trigger’s WordPress Setup

Widget Logic

FT had a complex sidebar so after ‘widgets’ were introduced to WP and Steve updated the FT theme in early 2008, I wrote a plugin to extend the functionality of widgets and make them appear as we preferred, rather than be a static sidebar throughout the site. Widget Logic allows widgets to appear or not depending on standard WP conditional tags, such as is_home() and is_single() and so on.

For support you should address yourself to the WordPress org directory and perhaps post on the forum there where it is supported by another developer now. You can leave a comment here too if you like though.

While I supported it, the plugin directed people to a Just Giving page and we ended up raising £1088 for Cancer Research UK which was nice.

Podcast Channels

Podcast Channels augments WP’s basic RSS feed with some extra elements, mostly in the ‘itunes’ namespace. It works with existing features of WP (auto-enclosures and the media library) to make a simple way to podcast, and allows different metadata in different RSS feeds – you can have as many channels as there are categories, tags, even blog authors.

I’ve not updated in years – and we’ve not updated a podcast in years!

    is_category(19,11,10,12) || (is_single() && in_category(19,11,10,12))

    that will work as you expect. try it on another plain WP theme first

    then it might be your theme is interfering with things. you can get round this with some of “Widget Logic” options in the widget admin screen. Try a late “Load logic” point or the reset_query fix

    During the preliminary hearings at the City Council it became apparent that Schitzer doesn’t want to talk about just how
    profitable iit really is. Even if yyou never achieve material
    wealth in the “real world”. Such dealerss are just a phone call away aand are ready to give a quite
    on the phone instantly after knowing the condition off tthe vehicle.

    Hi again Alan, hope you are doing well.
    I must be missing something obvious. I switched to the Twenty Fifteen theme.
    I added a custom menu to the default widget (default only has the search). I then added the logic to the custom menu that I added
    is_category(11,10,12) || (is_single() && in_category(11,10,12))

    Strange thing is, if i go to the main category of ’11′ the custom menu will show. If I go to any single posts within category ’11′ it disappears.
    If I go to the others ’10′ or ’12′ it does not show at all.
    Am I missing something?

    Oops, forgot to mention, once I switch to the Avada theme, none of it works. I have tried using different logic theme combinations but this thing just does not like me!

    Thanks for sharing. You can also use a dark mode plugin for giving a break to your eyes. Adding dark mode to your website can benefit you as well as your users. Whether you’re focused on reducing eye strain or simply prefer the darker look, adding a night mode option is worth the effort. It will increase the traffic in the long run.
