Jean-Baptiste Jung who runs CatsWhoCode.com has compiled a list of what he considers to be the top WordPress hacks so far in 2010. Among the list are code snippets to allow contributors to upload files, display ‘time ago‘ dates, WordPress navigation outside the loop, and disallowing the ability to switch themes. One of my favorite tips in his list is the MySql query statement that makes it easy to remove specific shortcodes from posts. However, can anyone verify if I could use the search and replace plugin to search every post for the short code and just replace it with blank space? Wouldn’t that do the same thing but without going into phpMyAdmin?
