WordPress is one of the most powerful, and popular, ways to publish a blog or website on the Internet. One of the things that makes WordPress so powerful is its extensibility – that is, the relative ease with which someone can make their standard WordPress installation accomplish certain additional tasks simply by installing discrete packages of code. One common way to extend WordPress is through the use of a “widget.”
WordPress is an incredibly powerful platform upon which you can build many different kinds of websites. Traditional blogs are supported, of course, but you can also use WordPress to easily create websites that don’t look like traditional blogs. Best of all, WordPress is available free of cost – as both a fully hosted service (at WordPress.com) as well as free software that can be downloaded for installation on your own web server (available at WordPress.org).
The true power of WordPress is in the custom functions, and Thesis takes this concept to task with hooks. A hook is exactly what it sounds like as it is hooked to a specific area of the page. Using these locations makes it easy to unleash the power of Thesis to do almost anything you want.
I found one of the cool function for wordpress users. This function will automatically sets the first image of the post as default featured image, if no image was chosen. But you can still choose any image if you want.
You may think why we did this kind of guide as wordpress installation is so easy and can be done less than five minutes to complete. Moreover, some hosting provider offer one click installation tools. Although the wordpress installation is very easy and simple for most people, it still need to take time to prepare. Especially for the one who used windows as hosting server.
