Already playing with WordPress and finding an urge to alter ‘unalterable’ features? Me too. First up. ‘Howdy’. Really? We aren’t all American cowboys. I installed the Piklist framework, activated it and then installed and activated WordPress Helpers. Packed with goodies, I changed the Admin Bar greeting to ‘Logged in as:’. That’s better.
And another thing I had already noticed, the normal admin settings allow you to turn all new posts and pages comments on or off by default. What about off for pages but on for posts? Nope. WordPress helpers to the rescue (again). Under the Discussion tab, the first option was to enable ‘Do not allow comments on Pages’. Sorted.
