WordPress Search Form without Search Button

This article explains a method for displaying a WordPress search form without a search button. The user simply enters they text they would like to search for, and hits enter. While this is easy to do with the use of a hidden submit button, this method also allows for the use of a default message in the search box (such as “Enter your search”), which keeps you from having to display a label next to the form explaining what it is for. This default message automatically clears when the user clicks to start typing, and puts itself back if the user clicks away. This allows you to have a search form that looks nice and clean, and is still just as functional. More »

This simple WordPress hack allows you to specify the minimum user level needed to post comments without moderation. By default, WordPress allows administrators (and the author of the post) to skip moderation checks when posting comments, but it is easy to adjust this so that you can choose the user level yourself. This can be useful for those of you who have strict comment moderation enabled (manual comment approval), as it allows you to let registered users of your site post immediately without having to wait for approval.

Prevent author impersonation in WordPress comments

This modification to WordPress prevents unregistered comment authors from using the names or email addresses of the registered authors on your site. It does this by first checking to see if the comment author is logged in. If they are not, it compares their name and email address to the registered author data. If there is a match, the comment is blocked and a custom message is displayed. The name and email address comparison is case-insensitive. More »
