The Jugaad Way – WC Mumbai 2016


Hello, WordCamp Mumbai! Here’s everything you need to start using the code snippets outlined in my talk.

1) First, download the Code Snippets plugin, and install it on a test site.

2) Then, grab the code for each example from the code blocks below, or by clicking on the Gist links next to each example.

Warning: do NOT run any of this code on a live site.

Modifying the ‘the_title’ filter (Gist)

add_filter( 'the_title', 'wcmumbai_add_promo', 10, 2);

function wcmumbai_add_promo( $title, $id = null ) {

  	$title = "WordCamp Mumbai >> " . $title;
    return $title;

Customizing the ‘login_message’ filter (Gist)

add_filter( 'login_message', 'wcmumbai_login_message' );

function wcmumbai_login_message( $message ) {
  return "<p>Are you going to WC Mumbai? You should be!";

Outputting a notice via the ‘admin_notice’ action (Gist)

add_action( 'admin_notices','wcmumbai_admin_notice' ); 

function wcmumbai_admin_notice() {
  echo '<div class="notice notice-info">Hello, WordCamp Mumbai!</div>';

Adding text to the comment form via the ‘comment_form’ action (Gist)

add_action( 'comment_form', 'wcmumbai_comment_form' );
