NOTE FROM MCBUZZ: Jeremy Green will be answering WordPress questions on our Free WordPress Help pages.

I began hand coding websites in my bedroom back when Geocities and Angelfire were cool. Thankfully the web has come a long way since then. A couple years ago I began diving into the wonderful world of WordPress and now I use it everyday, whether on my own sites or on my client’s sites at Endo Creative. We are a Fort Collins based company specializing in custom web design and development, utilizing WordPress for most of our projects. We offer custom designed WordPress themes, WordPress plugin development, and WordPress consulting.

I first got involved in the WordPress community when I attended my first Seattle WordPress Meetup. The connections that I made sparked an interest to learn more about WordPress and give back to the community. I am excited about helping others with their WordPress questions. I have benefited from resources like this, and I’m happy to give back to the community.

WordPress Problem with Atahualpa Theme and Bullets

Apr 21, 2010

A reader was having trouble adding bullets to text in the Atahualpa theme for WordPress. I did a test install of Atahualpa and the bullets are working for me. Be sure to note the order of the steps. You can click on the blue text below to see a screen shot of each step.

  1. Enter your text. (Put a hard return after each line you want to make into a bullet.)
  2. Highlight the text you want to make into a list of bullets – either numbered or unnumbered (ordered or unordered).
  3. Click the bullet/list button – either numbered or unnumbered. (Be sure click Publish or Update.)
  4. Done.

Add Google Maps to Your WordPress Website or Blog with MapPress

Apr 1, 2010

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to add Google Maps to your WordPress website or blog, check out the MapPress plugin for WordPress.  There is nothing difficult about this plugin.

Here’s a screen shot of the interface that’s built right into the Dashboard editing window (left), and another of the MapPress Settings interface.

MapPress plugin – Google Maps for WordPress

[mappress]

The hardest part about using MapPress is getting a Google Maps API key. For this, all you need is a Google account (same as a Gmail account). When you install the MapPress plugin, it will prompt you for your API key. If you don’t have one yet, MapPress provides a link to this Google Maps page where you can login to Google and get it, or else create a new Google account and then get the key. Once that’s done, you’re ready to build maps and embed them in your WordPress posts and pages like there’s no tomorrow!

I have spent the last few days working with the Google Maps API directly, trying to build some custom maps for a client. It’s amazing what you can do. By “you”, I mean skilled programmers who thoroughly understand JavaScript, a group I don’t fall into unfortunately. I know enough about JavaScript to get by, but it has been frustrating, because I see what’s possible. I just can’t quite get there yet.

After thrashing around with the API code, MapPress feels mighty good. You can put a semi-custom Google map into a page in under 10 minutes. And it’s super easy to make modifications after that if you need to.

MapPress is limited in a number of ways. For instance, you can’t use your own icon images. You have a selection of colors, but the icons are all the same size and shape. But for ease of use and basic features – the stuff you really need – MapPress can’t be beat.

On a scale of 1 to 5 stars, I give MapPress a 5 for easy setup, ease of use, and powerful features that will make you and your WordPress website or blog look GREAT.

WordPress Tutorial – How to Upload and Insert an Image Using WordPress

Mar 17, 2010

WordPress Websites Tutorial by Mark McLaren – How to Upload and Insert an Image

This video tutorial replaces my earlier “How to Insert an Image” tutorial for WordPress that was done using screen captures, text descriptions and WordPress version 2.1 or so, which is a bit outdated today.

Some people prefer text tutorials with screen captures. My “How to Make a Text Link” WordPress Tutorial is still a straight-forward explanation of the process, which hasn’t changed.
