# Some modifications for WordPress

I recently changed my WordPress theme to Reflex+, a theme that resembles the current look of Google+ and other Google related services. I had to make some manual modifications.

### Excerpt vs. full content for each post

On the main index page, you can either show just an excerpt or the full content of each post. I like the full content. To get the index page of your current theme to show the entire content of each post, find a line in ./blog/wp-content/themes/reflex-plus/index.php similar to

#+END_EXAMPLE

and change it to

#+BEGIN_EXAMPLE



My changes:

»').''); */ /*vinh: display full content instead of summary */?>
»').''); ?>


I don’t like it when links are not visually different than normal text. I followed this post and modified ./blog/wp-content/themes/reflex-plus/style.css:

div.post a:link {
color: #09C;
}

div.post a:visited {
color: #006;
text-decoration: none;
}


I wanted to give instructions on writing Markdown Syntax, source code, and LaTeX near the comments box. I modified ./blog/wp-includes/comment-template.php as follow:

/* 'comment_notes_after' => '

' . sprintf( __( 'You may use these HTML tags and attributes: %s' ), ' =' . allowed_tags() . '=' ) . '

', */ /* vinh */
'comment_notes_after' => '

Use [[http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax][Markdown Syntax]] for markup.
Surround blocks of code with  and . For syntax highlighting of specific languages, use the appropriate "brush alias" from [[http://alexgorbatchev.com/SyntaxHighlighter/manual/brushes/][this]] list. For example, surround php code with  and .
LaTeX code can be surrounded by "backslash left parenthesis" and "backslash right parenthesis" or "backslash left square bracket" and "backslash right square bracket".
